Good question. Since you asked:
There's two fish and one gunny shape that are in the maybe category. My fishcuit I rode pretty exclusively for a year and a half. Had some great waves on it but it was ultimately frustrating wave count wise. Gun will probably get sold unless I move somewhere where I'd use it. The other Tolhurst Fish is a project. I repaired it about a year ago and hoped it would be what the fishcuit wasn't. However I haven't really had a great session on it and it's got a few hang ups that if I get the time and place I might work out. So I haven't given up on it.

Carver is always there to up the wave count and perform well in most sized surf. Carver Fish I would probably surf most of the time if I lived somewhere else. Mal is for long point waves. Foamy is for.....in the flags.

I've got about eight surfboards.
WTF can't you count them? Nobody has "about eight" of anything
Well I ncluded my old 60s Pig Board which is completely fcuked but still sits at the back of the pile. I would say rack but there isn't one. Also an old Local Knowledge that I haven't ridden in years. So I'm balancing actually having the boards with actually intending to ride them.
Boards I actually ride would sit around four to five.
So is it four or five?
I bet you’re sorry you asked.

Beany, I think what's needed here is a spreadsheet with a column for each board and a row for each day in which you can enter the number of hours ridden for each board.

Can you keep it for the next year or so and we can determine various statistics for each board. Maybe you could also enter the number of waves ridden, length of ride and number of turns.

This should be very exciting reading! And we can do all sorts of analysis by month/week/season, board, turns, etc, etc.

Thanks.

Sounds okay since every fcuker on here wanks on about there surfcraft indefinitely. Not pointing any fingers of course :-D-:

I just saw an article on Facebook about abalone season in Perth being cancelled due to swell. Someone referenced kilojoules when talking about swell height.

Cranked has a legion of converts, unless of course it was Cranked.

Have a great Vimeo link to 1981 coverage of 2SM Surfabout at North Narra. Runs for approx. 45 mins if anyones interested. Pretty good.

Someone on Hodady posted a running board for that comp I think. It was a pretty stellar cast for the comp.

She's still kicking, Trev. A mate lives near her. He was talking to one of the local shopkeepers and said Phylis must be really patriotic because she has Australian Flags sticking out of the top of her car. The shopkeeper said it was so she could see where she parked it.
