Re: Where did you surf today ?

Sounds like too much hard work for little reward. I need to surf the beachies more. I realised how unfit (how lazy i’ve become) i was the other day when i tried getting out at north Narrabeen. Spending too much time at the point really has a negative impact on fitness and duck diving skills... Been ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

No meat and three veg here the last coupla days. Yesterday just all feeling a bit Hawaiian, smooth late drops, deep connective turns on the big six, epic show-pony "down carves" with the whole drop knee shtick going, changing up the lines, letting the board manhandle the wave, then riding into sand...

Re: post your modern day sickness

All of the well known brands have a similar model to that one. It’s all “more foam under the chest, wider point pushed forward bla bla bla”. There are differences between them so before splashing out $800 on the Chilli I’d look at the DHD models and definitely Lost and maybe Channel Islands. They’r...

Re: Tail shape ... what do you prefer?

Just buy it. And if you don't like it sell it. :) The swallow tail issue was surrounding the board on the gumtree. The rocker question was more around my thoughts on getting a board with a bit more rocker for the better days around home. I like the looks of the Slater designs Gamma. Thinking the 5’...

Re: Tail shape ... what do you prefer?

Also,

If you had two boards exactly the same, but one had low entry and exit rocker and the other had medium entry and exit rocker. How much different would the boards paddle? Would it be that noticeable?

Re: Where did you surf today ?

It used to be relatively quiet (shoes) yeah, with the advent of social media and all the local hot groms trying to get "the shot" it's a fkn zoo down there. I only check it if I have a day off work. Great wave to shoot in all honestly so many different vantage points. there's almost always someone ...

Re: Tail shape ... what do you prefer?

i'm thinking if i was to get the swallow i'd want to ride it with big fronts and a smaller centre.
Like an xlarge front and a smaller centre. I was thinking a set of Large reactors in the front and maybe a M3 size centre, which i guess would be the centre fin from a medium size.

Same board in a round tail and a swallow tail. What to expect?

Digging up and oldie here. I've got a 6'0 x 19.6 x 2.5 31.3L PCC round tail short board. there's probably a pic floating around on my quiver thread post from last April when it was new. Love it as a quad with medium reactor fronts or Large AM and performer quad rears. Don't mind it as a thruster wit...

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 ...
