I saw that on FB this morning too. Wonder if he’s ever done others and how much of a punt the design is. He’s really broadened his design parmeters over the last few years compared the old days of the classic shovel nosed Caves and Spoggies board.

I always thought that his boards were a bit retarded, but the last ten years I'd say he's up there with the best, I heard his son is shaping haven't seen any of his yet

Snapper looking a bit dribbly. Lots of deep, flat sections.

It looks the real deal to me, Rustt.
Bit of a classic doubler situation. Nice to have the gopro view of the wave switcheroo as well.

Ace Buchan did that in a CT heat in Europe a few years ago.
Still blows my mind he didn't get a 10.

I didn't realize it but the go pro is straight afterwards.

I thought it was edited cause there seems just a slight jump in the image at 4.06. Who flicks out and pulls into another wave and straight into a barrel? It's just not done!

I remember at the time thinking how sick this was. Probs not that big a deal nowadays when you look at the new stuff. Still an interesting wave none the less

Wow!
From Stu Nettle on Swellnet, jet ski laws actually being enforced on the Gold Coast. Stu and Jimmy and all those campaigning, not those just whinging on the internet, making a difference.

Was there any demonstration at the WSL contest? Was noise about a paddle out, but I missed it if it happened. Fair to presume it didn't because it wasn't mention it in your BG account of the final?

I wonder if Darren Handley provided the tipping point.
