Re: Midlengths

Ordered one of these yesterday. In 8’0 or 8’2. Patto’s going shape two identical apart from the size and I’ll take my pick. I’m swaying towards the 8’2 though Will be 23.3 wide and 2.87 thick. Big 10” fin. Vee bottom. Looking forward to something so different to what I’m used to riding. https://www....

Re: Midlengths

https://surfsimply.com/volume-to-weight-calculator/ http://www.grantmillersurfboards.com.au/boards/waterskate Thanks for that ctd. Very helpful I’ve had a water skate. Get it glassed well. They’re the best for Sydney beaches i reckon. I’ve had a 6’8 and a 6’2, both sensational. Rounded pin in the l...

Re: Midlengths

Forget litres, just get around a 7’6 with a bit of foam out to the rails. This could be the best advice in surfing for anyone from a beginner to expert. It there’s one board a surf needs it’s a 7’6 (in my case 7’7) single fin with/without trailers. Not a fuschia thruster minimal. I’m open to most t...

Re: Midlengths

I’ve never liked the LFT tech. They ding easier than PU in my opinion. The old rapid fire tech wasn’t the greatest either. I’ve got a helium 5’11 gamma that I picked up recently. Haven’t been using shortboards much lately as my back’s been a bit dicky with all the sitting down I’ve been doing during...

It’s just that FireWire thing in anything but Machado or that dude with the funky boards (Nano etc)
Not sure what you’re saying?

I’ve had some great firewires over the years.
The best of them was the 7’2 seaxe. Loved it.

Re: Midlengths

Has anyone has any experience with the Soulty Surf brand coming out of soul surf in Brookvale? They look like the Sanctum branded boards.
There’s an 8’2 that looks like fun, 550. Cheap like a budgie.
Looks like the sanctum magic carpets, but with a tear drop concave which I’m after.

Re: Midlengths

Thanks for the clip gents. Most of those Gato Heroi boards are hull bottoms aren’t they. It looked like it wasn’t very easy to surf. Not sure they’d be suited to the waves I’m in frequently around Cronulla. I’m pretty familiar with the surfboard warehouse boards. My 9’0 is made by those guys. I pick...

Re: Midlengths

Seems hard to find clips of people riding 8-8’11 boards specifically. Well, if the videos are there, they aren’t tagged to draw attention to the actual board length.
I found one clip of an 8ft comp down Ulladulla way, but it was nothing to right home about.

Re: Midlengths

I’ve always ridden a longboard. In my opinion there’s just no other choice in 1-2ft peeling high tide beachies.

Re: Midlengths

I’m 5’10 and 80kgs. Been riding a 7’7 PCC singlefin fin for just over five years. Keen on getting something that sits in between my 9’0 epoxy pop out. Thinking about a 8’6 Firewire special T or an 8’8 the gem. Anyone had any experience with said boards/lengths and how was the nose ride experience I’...

Re: Midlengths

I’m stoked that autumn is on the way. My 6’10 crossbreed didn’t get a look in over summer. Missed the few swells we had due to work commitments and when I did get in the water, i surfed a sweet 5’10 swallow tail with a Full length vee that a good mate of mine shaped me. Had a massive kook moment yes...

Re: Midlengths

Jet will prob buy it. Looks nice. I was very tempted. But I’ve been put on an allowance by the Minister of War and finance. Must include all surfboard and beer purchases. Haven’t board a new board since the Jye Byrnes 6’10. Haven’t needed to. The quiver has a bit of everything in it so I I haven’t ...

Re: Quiver thread

canned the business idea. was going to get a few products put onto Amazon. Seaxe is sensational. had it out up at saltwater a few weeks ago. getting waves from the end of the point to the beach... love it. don't remember the last time I paddled that much. got the quiver culled a fair bit these days...
