I want one of these in 6’4 x 19 5/8 x 2 5/8. They look right up my street. but don’t want to shell out the grand a half cash for it.

The side on shot looks like 5 fins but the bottom shot shows 3?
Photo taken with camera in line with the midpoint of the board.
Not in line with the sidebites looking up at the rest of the board :wink:

Interesting Ben thinks he's worth as much as a shape by his old man. You could get a similar Munro around the corner for nearly half that.

Not really, 1200-1400 for a new Munro.


Iggs, there's a guy on the Goldy shaping similar sleds, saw one last time I was at the Alkali factory.

That would be half the price......fcuk they look good.

Perfect for you.

I’d love to Steve. But too many boards already. Mortgage and all that.

If I could have just two boards it’d be a 6’4 2+1 pinched in diamond tail w 4 or 6 channel bottom. And a sleek 7’2 Dave Parmenter widow maker with pintail at around 20.5 wide.

Wide point forward FTW for me

Saw a 2nd hand Simon Jones channel widow maker in a local garage store.
Tasty but too small.

Shite, Munro must have put his prices up since last time I dropped in about two years ago now. Nice boards though. I had a " midlength" of his years ago. First one I ever had actually.

For those south coast waves. Werri point would be nice with a 2+1 under foot. The whole fin vs. tail set up on 2+1 is a trip. Not sure anyone has really nailed a "go to" design.

Actually how did Jimmy go with his 2+1 I wonder?

I like wide point forward for anything that isn’t summer wind slop

I have to point out a few years ago I mentioned front foot and back foot orientation and got taken to task by some "experts" on here.

If one is in Wyong for a couple of days, where would one surf? My knowledge of the Central Coast is thin.

Try Soldiers and Pelicans at Norah Head.

It might be solid. Not sure how good and fit you are and most of the locals are pretty good surfers.

You can paddle out at Box Head right in front of Woy Woy if you aren't scared of sharks. Longest left on the East Coast when it's breaking. Tell them Beanie sent you :-D-:

Copacabana, McMasters and Avoca are much closer than Pelican. As is Terrigal. Entrance has tons of waves if you know where to look. Don't think you will be doing much surfing this weekend unless you are in the Nick/ Haychie League of fitness.
