Took it for a paddle up at the beachie on Saturday. Conditions less than ideal. 2ft @ the alley.
Was nice to get a feel for it. Great size board for me. Love how it paddles. Can’t wait to get it in that 3-4ft range.
Beautiful board Jet, keep us updated with those ride reports

Re: Midlengths

CB = 7x21x3 HM = 7'2x2 3/4x21 1/4 The CB closer to a thruster and great in 2-4ft. Has a domed deck and is pretty loose. Where as the HM thin foil and razor sharp rail is reminiscent of a bonzer egg shape. It's great in faster, larger and more powerful waves. Both are great on the back hand, no trac...

That looks beautiful salty, love the outline. The deck looks like the love child of 80”s billabong & quiksilver prints, epic!

Re: Single fin shortboards

Jack Knight from Harvest surfboards shapes a single fin with Jim Pollard influenced curved channels which run from nose to tail. Trippy but he has been doing them for decades..... I know this doesn’t answer your question Hatchy but I to am curious, hopefully someone can chip in and explain, cheers

Went the Farm with 750 of my closest friends. Reasonable wave, but man, the water was more frigid than my year 7 girlfriend.
Speaking historically of course. >><<

Re: bonzers.....the quad fad is over

Got it - 5'9, 19 1/2, 2 1/4 - egg. It's really refined, with HP rails and a pulled in nose and tail. Have surfed it about five times. Great allrounder. Really gelled with it from the first surf, which i don't often do with bonzers. Shoulder recovery is slow, so i can only surf once to twice a week,...

Re: Midlengths

I think it’s the “Bodega Boardriders” podcast which has a good interview with Devon Howard talking eggs. Well worth a listen
