Ha.
That was me experimenting. Orange resin pattern on a blue board. Woosely Competitor 399.

True.
Weekends camping at Angourie or Byron. With just us? Fun drives over the Burringbar Range.

An EH Holden drove past me this morning with 2 single fin logs, a midlength single fin and a fish on top. 20something dude was driving.
Probably a filmmaker. Remake of "Summer City" anyone?

Plenty of flotation there!
I don't understand the five listed dimensions. Shouldn't there just be three for length, width and depth?
Looks like the tightass isn't supplying fins.

Sometimes the shapers put the tail and nose width dimension on as well, 12" in from each end. I think.

Thanks, that makes sense. A mutant board indeed - I reckon it will take a while to sell, even at that price.

Not a bargain at all - but hipsters would be vomiting all over themselves due to the tailpad and ocd wax placement...

My Outerislands has versa traction ( I think, the clear grippy stuff ). It'd be a pain to take it off, so I've left it on. Works great and you don't get wax all over your board bag etc.

What do you mean ? It's prob in mint nick. Tuflites usually go hell cheap. Just keep them out of windy lumpy stuff and they're fine

Well, yeah, maybe. Also easy to repaint a snapped board.
