Good rocker

Vee and twin after burner concaves

Options galore

Beautiful paint job.
Surfs upside down ??


Clean lines and excellent AST construction

Beautiful cruiser
Thanks Dave Spraguester at the Core (Boardsports that is!!). This board goes like the powers of piss. Really thin nose and tail makes for good nose riding and chucking around whilst having a cruise. I'm loving catching waves so early switchfooting when the chance arises (not well) and it's really stable. Great fun board over Summer on those on short period wind swells. Don't get me wrong it's gone brilliantly on two to three foot solid ground swell shorebreaks, but If you really want performance and you're under 40 without spinal injuries or replacement joints then DH short boards are the go or Mc Tav long boards. DON'T give Surf Supping a bad name by paddling out to the inside of the Takeoff point and start playing kill the kid. Pay your dues and learn surfing, it's priority rules and its courtesy FFS. Please stop asking how short a performance sup is. Most top suppers ie. Jackson Close,Tha Dogman, Chris Close et al. are on the way back up. If you can surf, performance is a relative thing!!
Cheers to you all Leroy.?? (three vertebrae spinal fusion - $12000, hip replacement -$9000 chronic osteo arthritis ????.ongoing, 50 years on all sized and shaped boards- best guess $100000.00?----'SUPS allowing my on going surfing at 59 plus ?????????? --- PRICELESS!!

PS. All my love and RIP. Dad!!

Board looks good = 8/5 out of 10.

Pretty solid rant that follows = 9.5/10

Thanks mate it a was very peaceful sleep in the end after I enquired if torturing 87 year olds was part of the hippocritic (spelling intended) oath. l love the Creek model. You now have your own never ending supply of custom boards!!! So when is Bert going part with some readys for the 'Rick Rock and Rolls' Creek model tour down under? Surely you've contributed enough excellent support to the Sunova coffers to make that a viable summertime in Australia promotional tour?
What about it Mr Berger? Unit sales would sky rocket even further for his excellent board. "Down there for Dancing' and up there for thinking!! Take care Rick, see you when you come on tour this summer!
