Be careful, Steve. They'll be monitoring you too.
What's LT talking about on BG? He wasn't even watching the heat.

They have said heat analyser will be available in the normal way on the WSL site.

Here's one. Was looking at some DHD boards at a shop that shall remain unnamed in this forum. The "helpful" young board salesman was pointing out the pros and cons of the DHD's and went on to add that Handley had somehow got hold of JS's software design's and basically replicated them and whacked his stickers on these boards. I asked him if he had any hard evidence this had occurred to which replied "no". In a jovial way I warned him that such potentially slanderous accusations could cause a bunch of fuss. He was unmoved by my advice.
Ultimately a hero is a man who would argue with the gods, and so awakens devils to contest his vision.

Re: Parko's retirement.
The WSL, to their credit, can knock up a nice quick vid (if they did it).

I want one of these in 6’4 x 19 5/8 x 2 5/8. They look right up my street. but don’t want to shell out the grand a half cash for it.

The side on shot looks like 5 fins but the bottom shot shows 3?

Photo taken with camera in line with the midpoint of the board.
Not in line with the sidebites looking up at the rest of the board :wink:

Interesting Ben thinks he's worth as much as a shape by his old man. You could get a similar Munro around the corner for nearly half that.

Not really, 1200-1400 for a new Munro.


Iggs, there's a guy on the Goldy shaping similar sleds, saw one last time I was at the Alkali factory.

That would be half the price......fcuk they look good.

Perfect for you.

I’d love to Steve. But too many boards already. Mortgage and all that.

If I could have just two boards it’d be a 6’4 2+1 pinched in diamond tail w 4 or 6 channel bottom. And a sleek 7’2 Dave Parmenter widow maker with pintail at around 20.5 wide.

Wide point forward FTW for me

Saw a 2nd hand Simon Jones channel widow maker in a local garage store.
Tasty but too small.
