Wonder who’s using the fake stuff. https://www.swellnet.com/news/design-outline/2019/06/14/carbon-patches-aint-carbon-patches Does anyone have one of those Thai made DHD EPS boards? They have a f...

Re: post your modern day sickness

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...

Nice mate, great to see josh still shaping, albeit infrequently. You just know it’s going to be fast, it’s red!
