was a bit repetitive, watching the same surfer on the same wave over and over is a bit boring. he didn't look like those boards were really working for him.

I thought he handled the small stuff a lot better than the big stuff.......like most surfers.

He did fine in the bigger stuff. Most here wouldn't have paddled out.

Sure but arguably not in the same league as his performance in smaller waves.

Perspective. Tyler Warren is lead hipster dude. Give him a tri fin and he probably would have obliterated the waves, although as observed he is quite light footed. Some of those cutties are insane. But it's all personal

Just did a lap of Byron Surf Festival, lot of beautiful surfboards, mostly twins. Saw Malcolm Campbell again.
And Batoes mate Dead Kooks.

I had to watch it again to see if I missed something, only saw one wave over 6 foot on the light blue board, all he did was take off and kickout. boards weren't doing him any favours in my opinion.

I’d like one of those Christenson midlengths. But not for $1300 odd.

C bucket? I've fondled one at Onboard. Nice low rail, pulled in tail. Probably use it 3 times a year in Sydney. Nice but

Yep. Rang Byron Onboard re their ‘massive sale’
Selected boards on sale starting from $500.
Christenson and Campbell NOT on sale.
