The old stock black beauties weren't as high volume as they are now were they?
The stock dims are 20 1/4, 2 7/8
Seems real beefy.

Exactly, the new ones are heaps more high volume.

I hate that about current board models/volume. They beef them up so quickly.

You gotta stay small guys, preferably under 30l.

The rush to smaller boards has definitely been one of the best things to happen over the last 10 years.

Really, its the only way to establish your credentials as a hard core surfer.

Fannings called it quits. Guess he’ll have more time to get towed in at the Goldy points.

First time I surfed Kirra was in a comp against Kirras B Team. Tommy Peterson was in that one.

They certainly won’t be surfing Kirra. Or anywhere else on the GC.

They'll be at D'Bah, is my guess.

Buy yeah, even the wind looks uncooperative.

I certainly won’t be surfing D’Bah on the weekend then.
And when I have time I’ll explain the whole Lesbo thing. It’s an interesting story full of twists and fists, I mean turns.
