Re: Midlengths

Still got my trusty 7'6" vquad (tri-plane bottom) that I have had for years. It's a yard stick that I use to measure any other mid length I ride. It's 21" x 2&3/4". It's a Woosley branded board shaped by local shaper John Mills who shapes for Beachbeat. It's a board that goes in everything and since...

Re: Midlengths

I'm still here. I just haven't been able to log in ages despite trying. Tried sending messages to the forum mods etc and never had a response. Just had another crack and got a temporary password and was able to log in.

Re: Fish

Same weight as before. 6'1" and 93 kgs. Riding dirt bikes doesn't trouble my back so just rode them more instead. Pop up has suffered. Still paddle fit. Hyper extension of the spine while paddling is not good for me. When I can keep my chest lower on the board my back feels better for it. Only poste...

Re: Fish

After a year out of the water with spondylolethesis (can never spell it right) which basically means a bad lower back with sciatic pain I'm back in the water. As we speak jAM71 is doing his bit in community service by picking up a DMS quad fish in a foam fest 6'8" from near him to ride while I get m...

I know far more people that have died in car crashes than motorcycles.

Re: What boards DID you take to Indo?

More surfers should ride motorcycles.
They'd be stoked with the substitution when the waves aren't co-operating.

Re: What boards DID you take to Indo?

That one's 6'6". Gave a Brazzo mate (stall next door at the markets) who's always been on a hpsb a ride on it and it was almost comical to see him turn into a frothing grommet on it. He wanted to buy mine or another 6'6" but I told him no to mine. He's 80 odd kgs and 20 yrs my juniour so I told him ...

Re: What boards DID you take to Indo?

Speaking of mass produced generic crap I was at a night market with my food stall next to a wood fired pizza stall the other week.
Everything that went onto those store bought pizza bases either came out of a large plastic bag, can or bottle.

Re: Fish

Speaking of, Cuttle (and others) I am looking for a bigger/better wave board and had a chat to Dick Van he reckons a slim Wasp about 7ft would be the biz. Any thoughts on that as you have a Wasp and ride the larger longer McNeil?. Never really occurred to me these fishy boards can be shaped as larg...

Re: Fish

I knew this would happen. I was saving for a PCC custom. In the mean time I found my $150 bargain. Now what do you think turns up on the gumtree a week later. 5'7 PCC fish with a nice fabric inlay. Can't do it. How can a man go from having no fish, to four fish in a month. Better keep it at three. ...
