Very Nice waves Paul.
Being a goofy myself growing in the land of right points, on east coast oz. I wish we had Lefts like that. Good size too.
Thanks for the Pics.
but why do you need 10z boat glass for 3 ft waves??
nope no one else kayu. just me and mate.. the wave is to hard to get into on a short board and is 30 minutes walk . i struggle even with my volumous fatties. cold.raw and close to the rocks but deep channel and fat sections. east coast is on this time of year. mahia waiarapa and a few mystos and the rivermouths. its a coin toss to go the mountain or surf. usually pick the mountain as a chair lift is a bit nicer then a paddle. your welcome anytime
well its only 3 foot but the extra glass is because thats what the guy asked for when he ordered the board of course. why else

this was the pic pat
Got a bomb at The Bower yesterday Huie, yew!!. Started of as this nugget at Deadmans and then it linked all the way to Winki and Kegged hard again, (second distance photo shot from Freshwater headland) which is rare for it to barrel well on both sections on the same wave. Hand shaped 5'10'', yew!! Mind blown!!
thats that yellow board I had the paint/cutlap/tape problem I asked you about..yew!!
ye ha'' marshy thats a great wave for all sorts of reasons eh''
not a bad winter in some ways
yep the paint job made no difference board is doing what it was meant to do,
Big South swell with strong south winds, not a lot of (good) options down here for that, the bower is the pick Kayu. Maybe Cronulla point was good, Dee Why point was maxing and wind affected, manly was ok but mostly a closeout.
Definetly a memorable ride since it barreled well on too sections of reef that are different waves and don't link up normally, and it happened on a sunday in the modern age of digital cameras and internet, didn't do one turn (i'm really good at going straight haha!!).
I am however riding a cave man surfboard of much the same construction as to when midget won in Manly 50 years ago.
Unlike Huie's creations...
Carry on Gentelmen..
haa marshy some things do not change as much as some may think''
wot did you do with the burger board?
Still got the 6'3'' x 18 3/4'' x 2 1/4'' Balsa Burger, it lives under my bed waiting to go to some long lefts in Indo, Fiji or W.A where you would have a hard time breaking it I reckon.
Dispite his theory on bottom surface area over volume to paddling, that Balsa Burger paddles badley, its very low volume.
The yellow 5'10'' x 19'' x 2 3/8'' for me at 6'0'' tall and 75kg is the best board for getting barrelled on up to 8ft with the combination of less nose to deal with in the barrel but enough strightness in the outline for drive.
The 6'3'' is good in long (clean) lefts where a longer rail is good for driving on the backhand...thats my take on it.
But still learning.
Quads are great in Indo (in this board) but lose grip when doing air drops down square ozzy waves then needing to do an extreme bottom turn to recover.
i hear a kamikaze was terrorizing it again last week on a yellow board?
not you again surely
It broke 3 times in a month which was lucky, sometimes it only breaks 3 times in a year, the bower breaks on all sizes but deadmans needs a 4m plus south or south east swell which we don't get much of on the east coast. East swells its a (heavy) close out, its far from being a perfect wave but it's deffinitly the most intimidating, scary, heavy and fun waves down here when on. This last session I had a nasty cut on the ball of my foot (from a different surf), could hardly stand up but went out cause it was good, I got no waves and felt nervous about the whole ordeal haha!! You need to be on your game if you want a set, really paddeling for you life to get into one ha!! I posted these photo's on John's facebook but it's not me, I thought some of the old boys would have some stories on the place, surfing it on flat rockered single fins would be another feat all together!! Yew!!
Sometimes you have to pay to play haha!!
