Re: Belly boards

I think midget red blanks for there density seem to be the go maybe.. I’m now turning my research to cant for the side bites and will be low rails but not sure yet on the length of the edge on rails to yet. I’ve got plenty of time to try to figure it out.

Re: Belly boards

Been reading and researching. I just can’t resist making a few bonzers. 3 fin only though, 4 inch centre and small custom triangle side bites. I’m not sure if I will ever get in the water again as the fear of hurting my back again is very debilitating and I do live in real fear of lifting any heavy ...

Re: Belly board

Hey beer fan, I’m not sure mate. I’m tossing up wether to get a surblank or a midget red blank. I like the density of the red blank, will need a six three to get a 5 foot belly that I’m after. My sims will be 18 tail, 16 blunt nose, around 22 wide. 2 inch at nose and 1 inch at tail. Not sure where c...

Re: Strahan tassie

Loving life in Queenstown. Not going to worry bout hearing till next summer as pulling walls down, replacing rotten weatherboards, fixing up shed for shaping. For heating it’s gonna be a heat pump. Will get a wood fire much later. I’m going to build a pizza oven in backyard during winter. Can’t add ...

Re: Strahan tassie

Think I will just have to pick my days for surfing Indo. We have settled on house and have now moved into Queenstown. We like it here, it’s quiet, isolated, and peaceful. Yes it’s cold but that’s okay. I know have to sort out power to my back sheds and watertight them. They will make great shaping a...

Compared to nick and others I’ve gotten off lightly. Urchin needles through the right ear and cheek from kissing the rocks at brown water, , 15 stitches somewhere in the top of my head from the break wall at Nambucca heads.Shattered L3,4,5 with arthritis set in, disks naturally fused to pelvis bone(...

Re: Strahan tassie

Rustt, that’s the bloody go mate, we should be ready in about August to get one of those slotted in. It will be small steps at a go. We sorta have a five year plan with the house, as I have to be careful with my back so I will be taking my time with everything. As for do we know what we are getting ...

Re: Strahan tassie

Personally I wouldn’t invest in property in queenstown in a million years. Though with my history of money management and investments (lack of) that might be the best endorsement you will ever get, for what is say is no good normally turns out to be incredible opportunities

Re: Strahan tassie

Queenstown, it’s classic small town living. Not much going on there at all. Just the way I like it. I don’t really ever need to work again though I’m hoping once the kids reach some sort of independence with their ASD issues I can go back to work. I tried driving school buses a month ago and it caus...

Re: Strahan tassie

Digger, if you are going to shape boards and give us the BBQ photos of the finished product (ie when you put the board on the BBQ to show the rocker etc), you are going to have to do something about that backyard. Guys on here are pretty vicious when it comes to lawn care :-D-: Looks like a good pl...

Re: Strahan tassie

No rental market yet. Most buy as it’s still cheap though with the mine reopening that may change late this year.

Re: Strahan tassie

Economy's pretty rooted down there. Mines have shut down in the area. No jobs. Hence the cheap houses. Would think the rental market would be pretty non-existent Loof. Buy a weekender. Flights to Tassie are cheap. The mine in queenstown is in a soft start up right now. It will be fully operational ...

I'm living in Port Campbell now. Buckets of room for the bus in the backyard if you'd like a little detour on the way down King Island is spectacular. Spent a couple of weeks there and would return at moment's notice Now that is bloody tempting Swivic, love Port Campbell. Will mention it to the mis...

Re: Strahan tassie

Good the fcuk on you, digger. One day for sure. Stone's throw from the West and day trip to the NW. Plenty of gems nearby, in and out of the ocean. My mum spent much of her childhood on Robbins Island. I need to get there before I'm dead. Closest I got was a fantastic left just near on the mainland...
