6 1/2 as the single. DT sides.

Was purchased for a overhead juicer waves. Does what it says on the tin. Really great knifey bottom turns as well. Can be ridden in the smaller stuff but not really the purpose.

I ride shorties, fishes etc...but this handles faster overhead stuff with aplomb. Tricky sucky backhand drops not a problem. Smooth as silk.

BTW Salty, I had my Shapers Stealth Quad rears in the car and compared them to the DT sides in size, rake and base and geez they were close.

Love the look of the Bing Maui Foil

https://bingsurf.com/collections/maui-foil

“Made famous in 1970 when Bing team rider, Rolf Aurness, won the World Championship of Surfing in Australia, this model is a modern revival designed by Matt Calvani. A high-performance short to mid-range board, the Maui Foil's nose rocker allows for ease of entry into waves while its double-concave tail kick allows for powerful single-fin turning. The rails are turned slightly down forward in the board and come to a down, hard-edge in the tail which increases speed and maneuverability. Ideal in medium to overhead surf, the Maui Foil can be your everyday board or your step-up for big days and is also available in a 2+1 fin configuration for added versatility”

I’d be happy to paddle that thing out 90 % of the time. Just cruise on smaller days, and lay down some rail on bigger days.

Yes that a Ronnie Goddard. 8.0 I think. His blogs has heaps of board pron.

Jeeaz those Bings are asking $1800. Wow.
Glad I get a few Campbell’s before prices went silly.
My 7.2 egg only gets surfed 20 times a year, but being strongly glassed it should last a another 10 years.

That Goddard & the Bings are beautiful, Bryan Bates from Byron has been putting some lovely eggs on his Insta.... & at $150
Per foot a bit cheaper than the Bings

That looks beautiful salty, love the outline. The deck looks like the love child of 80”s billabong & quiksilver prints, epic!

Amazing looking board Saltman. How'd end up doing the rails. 60/40? Note the slightly sharper nose for the dive.

This is pop out looking but seems to be a decent shape.

https://www.torq-surfboards.com/fun-68.html

6’8” x 21” x 2 3/4”

And only $530

https://www.naturalnecessity.com.au/col ... -surfboard

Is the construction any good? It’s epoxy but hopefully not tuflite feeling...

Torq Epoxy Technology combines a lightweight EPS core with Biaxial fibreglass cloth, Epoxy resin and our unique Shield Skin

Anyone had a dig at one ?

Sounds pretty much like tuflite.
Probably surf about the same as any minimal with similar construction, see my comments here:

No Iggs, but I know the shipped cost of one is $125 so they must be cutting corners somewhere.

They feel really plastic to me.

Probably surf fine though.
