Re: New board

Dimensions are similar to other boards: 54 x 21 x 1 7/8". So far it's been ridden finless, which I'll probably stick to. I'm not entirely sure that it is suited to fins. The couple of times I rode the previous version with fins, they didn't seem to interact well with the wings. I'd talked to the sha...

Re: New board

Sort of fortunately I saw this happen - I was on the bus moving between terminals when I saw my boards fall off the luggage trolley and go under the wheel of the cart. If I hadn't seen it I would have got to the destination and gone - what the %$&* happened to my boards. The airline were good about ...

New board

The latest board - intended to replicate board 7. I only had one wave in a very crowded surf and it went pretty well.

The reason I got this one, was an airline luggage cart ran over my previous two boards.

Calling all Europeans

It has taken a while, but I am in the process of updating my website of the past and some present history of early prone surfing in continental Europe. http://home.brisnet.com.au/~bgreen/Europe/index2.shtml I'm looking for old photos of boards, people surfing or making them and any information about...

Re: happy whatevers and merry xmas

Gday Kage,

All the best to you as well.

2019 was a very mixed year.

I was hoping to post some next board photos but the board is waiting to be sanded (it is a duplicate of a board that had an unhappy meeting with a airline transfer cart).

Re: Greetings from Portugal

Boa noite, Krusher on this forum has made a few paipo based on bodyboard shapes. These were foam and fibreglass. A ply board will have a lot less buoyancy than a foam bodyboard. Fins probably aren't necessary, though this will depend on the waves you surf and the experience that you are looking for....

Re: Immigrant board Mk2

Looking at your board, I was thinking you could make one without the wings, but include an attachment so you could fit different size wings, like FCS.

They could also be trialled on a standard board, if the rail was flat enough or there was a specific shape, that allowed for this.

Re: T-Belly G6

The thickness flow of my boards keeps changing - its now more evenly distributed than Larry's original. Also a bit more tail lift., though less than a standard board.

Bordeaux surfing exhibition with plankys

The latest Surf Blurb (edited by Jeremy Lemarie) posted a piece on an exhibition dedicated to surfing, hosted by the Aquitaine Museum in Bordeaux from June 2019 to January 2020. It may be worth checking out. Jeremy said he might write a piece on planks. We also have an interview in the pipeline with...
