Re: post your modern day sickness

Spoke to a guy who took his to solid Indo and said he didn't ride any other board the entire time. For powerful waves he gave it a double thumbs up.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Excuse yet another post.

Rob Machado has lovely style. Is style underrated today?

Can you spot the odd thing in this clip?

Surfed Curly yesterday and was surprised at the pace of the waves once up and running

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I wouldn't take it personally. Most foreigners don't have swimming drilled into them like Australians.

And besides I also mentioned another group of people. Not sure why you needed to be defensive.

20% of surfers self report that they cannot or are weak swimmers in the surf. Must be a large foreign contingent I'm guessing or older surfers who don't live near the water who dabble now and again.

Re: Midlengths

I use the standard set up - 6 1/2. Seems to work fine. Funnily enough I think the True Aimes Bonzer fin max size is 7. I think this shape board would perform well as a Bonzer.
