Yep braved the rocks locally on Sat arvo in wind, was more fun than expected but today on a early high tide was super fun. Surfed on my new SDR Boston Switch for both days and really enjoyed it..

Coped a stinger to the face yesterday though not too much fun

Two days of surf though, hard to beat



So it went ok then?



Yeah. Harder to duck dive then the Evo, even though less volume, much easier to surf and paddle was also okay. Maybe it feels a little thin (width wise) across my chest area and just forward of that but all in all not bad.

Certainly a lot more solid in construction than anything I've surfed in some time

Hoping for round three tonight


What lenght JB, I have molested them a few times in the local surf shop

Its a 6'8" at 40.3 ltrs. I picked up at a price i couldn't refuse. As i said its well built, solid and feels good under foot. Maybe a little more subtle to ride than my Evo.

For now its a cheaper, so dropped it of to Dave today to get my Rpela fitted

I managed to surf yesterday in smallish slop and it still paddled really well. Just feels weird i guess coming from square nosed boards. I find the paddling sweet spot forward and back rather different so will take a little more to get used too..But so far very happy.

Checked my favourite nw wind novelty wave but alas it was infested with grommets like a rash, I procured a coffee and watched it for 15-20 minutes 20 out when I got there and 30+ when I left I thought about it but left them too it

I know where you were, I guess. Never been more than mildly tempted tbh.

My local's been putting out the messy onshore goods the past few days. Watching it now and, maybe I'm getting old, but I really can't be ****ed paddling out in the 2mm.

Come on now...it's been common knowledge for the past couple of years that I soften up and started wearing a 2mm....more because of the constant jellyfish stings but hey.
