Re: TBG5

The US is very low on the bodyboarding spectrum--it has substantially diminished over the past decade or two. I would also say the mainland USA surfing community is very segregated and antagonistic towards each other. I notice this especially with USA foot surfers bringing their attitudes to overse...

Re: TBG5

Come on Rod! Get out your 5/4 wet suit and go for it. It is hard, so hard! That is, when the bones begin to freeze, yikes. And make that the 6/4 with integrated hoodie, the 5mm gloves and layers of 5mm, 2mm, 1mm fin socks. It has been a cold transition from winter to spring and the creaping arthrit...

Re: TBG5

Rod, Are you exclusively riding bonzers these days? Do they have bonzer fins or your own preferences? No, I wouldn't say so at all. Up above the thread I think we were talking about limits of specific design choices for a wide variety of wave types and riding styles. Everything is a compromise unle...

Re: TBG5

Tighter turns...(unfortunately, at the cost of less top end speed). W're talking subtle changes in performance. He did add that at one break he visited, he was able to make a very speedy section that he has failed to make in the past. I'm finding the design issues to be very similar to those encoun...

Re: TBXL

Nomas, Maybe we are using language differently. I would have thought a square tail would turn easier than a pintail, the latter able to draw a longer line. My series of 7 boards on the same design, has focussed on changing 1 or 2 variables at a time. For me this was a useful way to learn, how certa...

Re: TBXL

After discussions on the G5 thread, <snip, snip> Questions? Comments? Nice discipline and articulation in trying to pull together many of the theories and comments in the 6-12 ft. mitigating chop hop discussion. My only comments as I mull things around the wetwear is that the diagrams present very ...
