Re: Europe in September

Also consider doing something cool sightseeing-wise instead. I’ve got to spend a couple of days in Paris with the cheesenkisses first, then i’ve got a couple of days to myself. It’s either get the train to Amsterdam and sample the cannabis culture, or tick another overseas surf destination off the ...

Re: Mentawai quiver.

If I was going to indo tomorrow, I wouldn't be going with anything flat. I surfed a DHD 6'2 sweet spot which had the most rocker out of any of my boards. I wasted a fair bit of time on my other flatter boards. I was on a single fin tangent at the time and had just taken custody of a 6'8. I had a 6'2...

Re: Quiver thread

Setting up an alternative to Gumtree. What's the single fin like? Do you like the sea axe? Is the epoxy mal Ne of Beau Youngs? The 7'7 single fin is sensational. I've had some of my best days surfing on it. Going to hang onto it me thinks. The 6'8 single was a great board too, great paddler, took i...

Europe in September

I'm off to Paris for a conference in September. I'll have a couple of days afterwards to head for a surf before coming home. I'm not going to be able to take a board with me but will have some space for a wetty. I need three things: cheap private accommodation - along the same lines as a pubstay or ...

Re: Two Misfits for sale

I think they’re targets Iggy. If he got his foot in the grey area he was winning. The wavy one was the board he’d surf after a few schooies.

Re: Midlengths

I don’t find the lightness a problem, if anything I see it as a positive. I’ve previously owned a 6’8 waterskate which was the longest serving board in my quiver. 2007 to a few months ago. It had quite a few repairs and got Patto to put a single fin box in, so it would’ve been as heavy as a 6’10). I...

Re: Midlengths

They only do seaxes in timbertek. Had a few waves in 4ft surf this morning with some wind chop on the surface.
Love it. No corky chattering like tuflites.
Love it.

Re: Midlengths

Loving the 7’2 seaxe. Wish i’d found something like this year ago. Would’ve saved me thousands. Not using much else at the moment. Have most of my boards on sale on the gumtree.

Ended up getting a second hand 7” fcs pivot fin. Use it with some quad rears for sidebites.
8” alk single fin was nice too.

Re: Coconut Spray; The Niugini Experience

No crowds. For two reasons. 1. The surf management plan seems to be honoured by everyone. We heard stories of machete wielding locals literally walking out onto the reef if they hadn’t been paid their cut of the surf tourism cash. 2. The resort wasn’t full, and it was a very good thing in this case....
