Re: Just general surfing stuff

@steve my boards a few years ago were "in" the water. This one (and to a similar extent but with a very different feel also the ghosts) is "on" the water. I liken it to fat skis vs skinny skis. I thought I would sacrifice hold and time will tell but in playful waves it's great to skip and skim along.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

It's 6'2". A few years ago I was on 5'11" x 18 1/2" x 2 3/8". Now I'm on whatever the stock dims are, although Jon wrote the litres slightly less than what the websites say. I was nervous at the size but it is very maneuverable and the floatation is a great surprise.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Goddamn the commentators in surfing suck. Kaipo, Strider, Pottz are so awful. I would even swap Joe Turpel for Kaipo. The Jeep "surf the alleys, pull aerials in the sand" ads are about the same level of cringe that the commentators are.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Do you prefer slippery boards or locked in boards? I like both but probably feel more at home on the latter due to my upbringing.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Extra foam is a revelation. Either that or this new shape is amazing.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Today I noticed a guy chatting to another guy. They were clearly strangers. One paddled away. The one with the orange wetsuit and black gloves on a Sunova longboard paddled _towards_ me and tried to strike up a conversation. As soon as it started I realised why the other guy paddled down the beach. ...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I surfed mine heaps in onshore conditions and they were great but at the time I was on a severe low volume trip. They felt like a Japanese filleting knife.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Yes he developed epoxy sensitivity. Bit hard given his epoxy construction techniques. He would cover himself head to toe in like a cleanroom suit and full head masks etc with taped joins everywhere and still break out in chronic rashes. And as a result gave it away, something he'd spent a couple of ...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I couldn't sell mine for a quarter of what they cost new. And they're good shapes. And they're new condition. And they're nigh on indestructibile.

@Wyre, probably.

He made fantastic stuff. And very strong compared to pupe. It's a shame he didn't earn ten times what he did. He was a very talented craftsman.

Re: Nth NSW sharks. Can they p!ss off already?

Probably best black 🦆 didn't get much surfing done. Funnily enough the day before he arrived two schools were thrashing around about 30m out past me. From the tails and fins I'd estimate 6-8'. Not much trouble but still made me a bit nervous.
