Mick Mackie started doing Stubbies about 10 years ago when the alternative craft thing took off

His new Sirfboard Warehouse ones seem to be an extension of the Wombat....which seems to be an extension of the Michael Cundith Stubbie.....which seems to go back to Greenough.
I thought the Wombat was a Paul Hutchinson shaped Bear surfboards model that Beau rode?
Yes it is. The Surf Warehouse board is called the "Carbon Jet" but it's just the Wombat with a few tweaks
The Hutchinson 9'1 by bear surfboards was epic, think it was the one Beau won a world title on.

I had one but it was a bit too high performance mal for my liking. First mal I bought was a second hand snapped one that Beau had ridden in an old Longboarding video. Snapped after a couple of surfs. Then I bought the Bear but I sold that and got a second hand Taka that I really liked. Finally snapped that and bought the Rabbidge that I have had ever since. Foolishly made them put side fin plugs in it post production. Never used them and detracts from the single fin purity.

Super fun lefts, 4-5 foot. Wind side/offshore, plenty of waves to go round.

Plenty of burning on the foamies at Bondi today.
Went out at Tama yesterday mainly because I got a park there.
Crowded and as usual looking better than it was.
Managed to finally get a set wave that threw after it peaked.
Stoked.

Another day even smaller and the stubbie is still doing it's thing despite a crew of about 30 mals and SUPs. Very friendly crowd though.

3 foot sawtell headland back beach with a strong cross/offshore. Pretty fun peaks. Punchy rights into the corner and longer walling lefts breaking a little wider. Warm water, blue skies, minimal crowds.

How good is Wales!

Fun head high breakwall wedges. Seemingly a little crowded but the majority were just tea bagging and catching nothing. Plenty coming through.

Similar. But is actually Tuncurrybrstycrwnghklpytlmykgvnmtbltgrwrnnn on the Gower peninsula. Works once a year for about two hours on the falling tide when the wind isn’t 60 knots onshore

It was a bit bigger than that when I surfed it in April. Really pitching on a few.

Crowd factor nice. Avoca point this morning was pretty good but, a zoo. When the 3rd and local SUP joined I cashed my chips in. Fucking hell its not the tourists it’s the older locals here on SUPs or Mals. It’s a killer. Location wise lots of options, quality wise minimal.

little new swell pulse this arvo, I am still wigging out about not being in Hawaii but any sign of rideable waves is a good sign. This one a tiny unusual push off that Fiji cyclone I think. Timing is about right as is interval etc.
