Re: Bonzers

I currently have 4, including a biscuit bonzer, but mine is 5'2. My favourite design by a long shot.

Re: Midlengths

Geez, that is a cracker Steve. I'd love to get something like that. Am still very much in love with my Russ Short - great board. Not quite a midlength at 6'2, but for a short-arse, it feels like a super long rail.

Re: Midlengths

https://youtu.be/ZPyBHCSFgXg I like. A hi performance mini mal (hello Steve :)), which makes it a lot more versatile for a range of conditions than some flattened out hipster mid length. I've ridden a few hulls and had a vbowls, which was super flat - and you are right. Unless you got a really nice...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Mystics was mental this afternoon. Some of the biggest waves i've seen out there and they were makeable. I saw guys get some incredible barrels and incredible bashings. It is such an unforgiving wave from takeoff to whitewash. You get anything wrong and splat! Hundreds of people scattered down the b...

Re: Midlengths

Bonzer fins for bonzers 90% of the time. I think a midlength with rolled vee and pinched rails needs a greenough 4a or liddle flex fin.

Re: Where's Roy dissappeared to ?

It is curious. He spent years bickering with everyone on every surf forum on the interweb about the validity of his designs. I remember him dissing bonzers, then years later, marketing bonzer fins on his website... When that cash runs out, he'll be back, until someone else hands him more money for n...

What size Greenough for a 7-3 do you think
I do like using side runners but am open to going full single
With side bites 7. Without 8. I'm using an 8 in my 7'6 - amazing.

Re: The Good Luck A Number One McCoy Thread

I rode McCoy nuggets for a while. The lazer zap was awful - everything stu wrote, i felt. Smaller nuggets were great fun (sub 5'8). Always wanted an astron zot. Just waiting for a 5'6 to pop up on gumtree.
