And then there's the UV factor causing plastics to go brittle

I've been using zip ties in the garden for years, carrying decent weight. Sunshine, rain, UV. Never had a failure.
You know they come in different sizes don't you?
No shit, Sherlock? :wink:

I've just added a zip tie to each of my boards as a backup to the loop.
Not sure if this is a display of brilliance or tardance

Re: Twin fins as go-to boards

Bargain. Back when I had my original, a larger mate had a scaled up version I rode a few times in bigger waves. Went unreal. Also, there is, or was, some photos on Mick’s insta of him surfing very solid Padang Padang on a twin

Re: Norfolk Island

Should have gone fishing. Only surfed once, but agree with the snorkeling. Magnificent. The walks and terrestrial/avian wildlife too. Majestic place

Re: rear quad fins symmetry difference

I had a little dabble with quads and fin setup. Pretty much agree with duck. A more upright rear set "seemed" to improve things, but they were also slightly bigger.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I once planted a tree at Bells for the Conservation Contest. Might be wrong, but think it's since been buried by a carpark. That carpark has since been expanded to accommodate buses. Who the fcuk has right to deny tourist access to a famed surfing reserve?

I've seen that film, but will watch it again. Part of me romanticised a life like that, but in reality it wouldn't be something I could ever sustain

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Sole on my O'Neil reef boots thin and good, but yeah, probably no good for meaningful warmth

And agree with Legion re sizing - you want a firm fit, but too small is fcuked. The tension strap across the foot serves its purpose well
