Three layers of cloth?
What ounce.?
With almost 65kg of raw power, 3 layers is a necessity

Look, OK, cards on the table. I fcuked my father up the arse. It was in the car immediately following my mother's funeral and on the way to the wake.

How much does one cost, custom with S-cloth?
from memory i got my last two 710 (no fins) ... i don't think they charged me for the s-cloth either time. the first one cost me 8-hunge, but i'm not sure if i got fins or why it was dearer. it was a few years ago now.

For any surftec tuflite lovers (vomit) natural necessity are having a huge sale on now getting rid of a shit tonne of those filthy old clinkers dirt cheap.

https://www.naturalnecessity.com.au/pag ... oards-sale

Remember going in there a few years ago and being horrified by the sheer amount of those things they had in stock.

Got into a discussion (semi debate) with some young surfy staff trying to push a sale of a TL board onto me. At the time I’d already had the opportunity to try a TL out (borrowed a mates old afterburner) and I gave some honest feedback about the negative aspects of the technology (too stiff, reactive,’and jittery etc) but he wasn’t having a bar of it, wrinkled brow, flicking his g@y looking long blonde hair side to side and trying to out vibe me or some shit. Jesus Christ.

Their sale on now is testament to how much TL sucks balls.

Thanks Iggy.

I checked it out but there was only one McCoy: 7’6 McCoy Nugget was $1099 NOW $899.

That was hardly a bargain and not a size I wanted. A Laser Zap or a 6'6 Nugget, or the 7'11 single would have been tempting, but only at the right price.

Stopped in last year on the way to Bendy. Fking plastics factory with the boards hanging upside down like a production line. I don't think they had a resin based board.

I'm actually keen to try an Wayne Lynch TL (orange one) so I'm not a hater but no level of great customer service can help that impressive shop

They're all resin based. They do have standard pu/Pe boards

Thought you would get a better price than that for boards, being in the trade and all.

BTW ridden a Jye Byrnes mid length, albeit in small stuff. I wasn't jazzed to be frank. Might be a bit too much foam and weight for the low rail. Once you set the rail it really is a pig to adjust unlike lighter short boards. Probs need to get the foot right back and stop being so fking busy on it.

i get offered offered cheapies, and even free ones. but i always pay my way. the guys making them deserve every penny they get.

in saying that i did get a free hayden recently as payment for something. but that's a little different.
