Re: Fish

Fwiw I think your fish is too big. I am 6'0 and was 74kg and I rode a 5'4" when I lived in San Diego. Could ride down to 5'2", and wouldn't go longer than 5'8". Different waves though. I think a fish shape is a bit limited but I have a 5'6" summer board that's fun as hell in small clean surf. I don...

Re: Fish

Had another session on the fish this arvo.
Damn tempted to go shorter again. Dug the nose it a few times. Might needs to get the stance widened up. Or straighten the line i’m taking off on. Or both?

Re: Fish

Saw a 5’7 x 20 5/8 x 2 1/2 on the gumtree for not much. Might give it a crack.

Re: Fish

My new fish 5'8 x 21 x 2.25 Flat bottom image.jpegimage.jpegimage.jpegimage.jpeg Been on the midlengths and shortboards for the past 12months. Rewaxed this after a failed sale attempt. Thank god it didn’t sell. Head high point surf. Lightning fast. It’s got me curious though. I’m 5’10 and 80kg. Nor...

Nice Jet, you can certainly mix it up with those options.

Have you gentlemen run the crossbreed as a single?
Haven’t ridden it as a single. I have ridden my seaxe as a single and it loved an 8” Alkali fin flex.

Re: Midlengths

I like the look of the JB JET. The grey or black stuff works every time. Make sure the surrounding area is clean and dry. Get a pair of scissors to cut clean edges on the piece of tape and make sure you put it down carefully so there’s a perfect seal around the edges. No crinkles anyway and you’re ...

Time to fire this thread back to life, I just bought a McCoy...... Only joking! This is a 90 page thread spanning 5 years, it's a real surf midlength chronicle, plenty of good info and boards we shouldn't have sold!
Never thought it would go this long.

Re: Stringerless epoxy crease repair

Is this a troll Jet? Why would you buy a fundamentally fcuked board? Forget about it. Definitely not a troll. We live in such a f#@ked up repair by replacement culture that I thought i’d try to give it a second life. I’ve just never owned let alone damaged a stringerless epoxy board. Worth the ques...

Stringerless epoxy crease repair

Never surfed a stringerless epoxy. There’s a creased board on the bumtree which is a perfect size for me. (Gary McNeill entity) It’s not completely snapped, has a crack along the bottom around the middle of the board. Rough cost to repair? How much difference from a freshie? It’s looks pretty good o...

Outline looks quite like a waterskate, which I seem to recall you used to have - any similarities?
The waterskate isn’t as refined. Boxier rails. Wider tail, slightly more round nose. I’d prefer the crossbreed in bigger surf.

Re: Midlengths

81kg, 177cm. 37years. Average Intermediate surfer. Board 6’10 x 21 x 2 7/8 41L. I’m not the best at board reviews to be honest. But for what it’s worth: I didn’t have too much trouble getting used to it as I’ve spent a fair bit of time on a 7’2 firewire seaxe. I’d call the crossbreed a more performa...

I wonder how old you can be and still get barrelled?
