Nah, they're more like those half airs that you do when you kinda convince yourself you're close to making it but in reality you've ended up laying back in the whitewater, parallell to the beach and with nowhere to go but down, usually tweaking your groin in the process. I think that twenty years ago I could probably have learned how to do airs properly on this board but I'm fucked if I'm risking near certain injury by trying now

Oh come on. Australia's only a pretend island. It's a fcuken continent. You don't throw shakas on a continent.

godsave, learning airs is for when you are under 18 and surfing every day. Manage an accidental half-one if you must! You know, the way people convince themselves they got a barrel! but for fcuk's sake don't actually pursue it.

Right that's enough of the shaka bullshit. Stop it immediately, all of you.

Ok, I'll stop it here on your thread NC.

However, I hearby swear a solemn oath to throw a shaka to every realsurfer at least once if we meet in the flesh.

For those of you unfortunate enough to have met me already, you're safe, I wont be going for retrospective meeting shakas.

Should I change my username to "ShakaBrah"

Do it Jet01. Enjoy yourself.

Look you guys, thanks for everything. I've really enjoyed most of my time contributing to Realsurf. Sadly, even after almost a year and a lot of fun in between, it remains a toxic place for me. I think maybe it's time to draw up this thread and move on. I'll ask trev or don or whomever to archive it for future use in case any of the crew can use some of the information contained in it.

Arrivederci and don't be a stranger if we bump into each other in the water.

Thanks Nick, got some great free insight into board design and Hawaii. Good luck and keep the surfing to 80 and beyond dream alive. Shame the site is giving you the shits just now as I've leant lots of things on this thread and also wanted to see how many boards you were going to keep in the garage board reviews as well. All the best and you know Manly are screwed without a decent pack for a while, maybe you can become a mystery writer on the One Eyed Eagle. Maybe just have summer off and get back in the RS cespool for next NRL season.

Thank you very much Nick, it was a most interesting read. Hope you got something out of it as well.

If you get to try out a McCoy one day, I'd still like to know what you think about it.

Ciao! I'm out of here, too.
