Re: Ask Carroll

Nick I am about to pull the trigger on a Tomo board. My question is whether you think any of them will perform in the weak short period crap that i surf 90% of the time? I am also a weak paddler because i get out once to twice a week. Will these designs be easier to surf than a regular surfboards? M...

Re: Ask Carroll

Nick

Can you tell me what your take is on this board? I really would like to find out how the bottom contours will affect the ride.

Re: Brand new, never waxed custom DHD Mick Fanning Pro for s

Jimmy1501 Thats a bit harsh since Darren "personally" suggested the specs and took the order himself. But clearly you are just more hard core than me. And NO, for any other people looking, this is NOT Mick's personal board from his quiver. This board is a model he lends his name to. Should I also po...

If I could get 50% off, I would buy one now. Plus I would disclose any associations in my post. Just a happy customer of Matuse, who by the way have arrived in OZ at a ridiculous price point.

Reginald - Not dogs. Quite the opposite. There are just details about the boards that differ to what I had envisioned when I ordered custom dimensions.

Re: Sunovas for sale

I would never want to disparage another working man who is doing good things. So I will leave it with the following statement:- For me to buy anymore Sunova boards (I have bought 4), I would want want to see the board first. And to be assured that it would be delivered in an acceptable period of time.
