I wonder what the sharkiest spot in the area he claims is?
NW? SW?
North end of 7 mile, outside banks, feels the dodgiest of all to me when you're out there alone. Which is most times at that place.

Its likely that inshore GW activity during migration is related to the number of sick whales that cark it on the way. Lots of sick whales means GW's eat their fill and don't bother sniffing around the coast. Fewer weak whales and the GW posse that are following the migration start coming in shore. W...

Re: Midlengths

If i was ever going to ride a mid length Pinny, that would be it. Looks good, what do you do from here? Well, next steps are I have to agonise over every tiny detail of the shape - like should I go 2 7/16ths instead of 2 1/2. Then I take the file to the Surfboard Studio to listen to Zac tell me how...

Slight vee nose and tail with a double inside a single concave through the middle. I was thinking I could ride it in sizie Winkipop, and ...

Wasn't sure whether I should post these pics due to the bitterness and envy they would cause. Josh Dowling. PU/PE 5'7" x 18 3/4" x 2.4" 29 litres asymmetrical. (He does the odd PU/PE for people if they want something interesting made) Josh did a raised deck in the tail - like an arch bar. So the ta...
