How much does one cost, custom with S-cloth?
from memory i got my last two 710 (no fins) ... i don't think they charged me for the s-cloth either time. the first one cost me 8-hunge, but i'm not sure if i got fins or why it was dearer. it was a few years ago now.
Thought you would get a better price than that for boards, being in the trade and all.
i get offered offered cheapies, and even free ones. but i always pay my way. the guys making them deserve every penny they get.

in saying that i did get a free hayden recently as payment for something. but that's a little different.
No cash for comment? You should be thrown out of realsurf

Seen as though they retail at $875. $710 with Scloth seems pretty good to me.

Fuschia. I just watched a click bait thing with Gabby dropping in on Kelly. What an unlikeable person he is.
There’s competitive, and there’s cuntish. The way he turned into him was cuntish.

Completely. The double shaka response from KS was pretty fcuking cool.

Just watched that. What a clueless cockhead. Watched a clip of him dropping in on Jordy Smith at Cloudbreak, looks like Smith kicks out hoping the board would hit him.

I'm out of touch with reality buddy, haven't looked at a price in a board shop for quite some years. Just been going to the same bloke for yonks and don't quibble on the price, looking through some of the threads I get a bloody good deal. I should research boards more though considering my obsession with surfing. Your right 20% off is probably close to cost for a retailer.

It's a professional sport. They play to win
Kelly would have done the same at pipe in a heartbeat

Look, OK, cards on the table. I fcuked my father up the arse. It was in the car immediately following my mother's funeral and on the way to the wake.

Kelly did do it, to Porko at Kirra. The point of difference being that Kelly surfed that wave, whereas Medina went straight (read left) and tried to run into Slater, attempting to create an interference call. Thats pretty full on.

I reckon the rules should stipulate that a surfer without priority should be given an equal opportunity to surf a wave, when the surfer with priority is so far down the line that taking off on the wave acts only as a spoiling technique rather than an attempt to further their heat score.

Professional or not there are things you don't do. "Gamesmanship" in all sports is frowned upon but a cnut is a cnut act.

Yes I'd understand if he dropped in and rode the wave. Cock.

Slater still got barrelled when he dropped in on Parko. How good would Parko's have been if that didn't happen?

I don't know how you would get a board bag to fit into a black cab. And I'm not lugging it all the way from the Heathrow Express to the Queen's Terminal.

Yeah, and even then it only ends up in Sydney.

I think godsave should join me on the bukit for a solid bali surf trip. I can show him the uncrowded spots and we can both wow the locals with the superior ability bestowed upon us by the magical lazor zap.

Yeah saltman I get that you use priority to advantage. No problem with that. It was the left turn into Kelly to try to force an interference call. He even threw in a little gesture to the judges to plead. I suspect he saw Kelly raise his hands out of the corner of his eye and thought that was an appeal so countered. Whatever, he's a cnut.
