It's 'Stinger' season up here in the Top End...






To say I'm psyched is a monumental understatement. Dylan and the crew at Sunova have crafted a stunning 14' beast for me.
I've been grinning like a panda in a bamboo plantation all arvo - so stoked!!!

Now you need to fess up with the design brief and the specs.
Those Nightcliff outer bombies won't stand a chance.
Or are you chasing Cullen bay Ferry wakes for a surf to Mandura and back

Creek-dude~!!!
Mate - you should know the colour - I asked Dylan for 'Creek Green' - he was all over it!
I reckon it looks filth - and I'm like a cat on a hot tin roof to get it in to my grubby little paws.

Have written extended stop over on the calendar for early next year break
So you'll have all the choice spots sussed
I remember us discussing the Point Break and how it would work up there, you'll get good mileage out of Search in off season.
Agree with Tardy on long haul standard sides drag , your Cdrive as sides will have less drag .
Enjoy

Classic BigH! That's great news!
No dramas man - we'll definitely make sure we snag some top end waves for sure ( remember to pack the booties and skins for box jelly protection)!
Cheers for the tip on the sides - soundz like the big centre is the goods on the big sticks eh.
I'm fairdinkum that keen to get her out in the waves and stomp the back foot on the big bugger.
Full old-skool drop-knee carves a la Midget (or Casso) on a massive board - hell yeah!!!

I was tellin' a few of the local lads about the new stick and they were laughin' - reckon I'll have to tell them when I'm gonna start turning for a wave to give them enough time to get out of the way. Reckon I might need a loud haler on board - "get out of the way!!! Comin through!!!!" Aaaaaaargghhh!!!

STC~!!! You're the OG core-lord man!!! you're all over it !!!
Dude - that's EXACTLY the sort of conditions we get here in Darwin throughout the Dry Season - super clean runners, just asking to be lazily carved up on 14 feet of schralping goodness.

Mate - I'm like a kid on Christmas eve- fairdinkum I'm that excited. my girlfriend reckons I've got the thousand yard stare going - like I've just seen a UFO - only permanently! Having trouble concentrating for any length of time over 5 minutes.

Keep rippin' STC -

UP the Search!!!
