The surfing is incredible, the intro uber cinematic I felt should have been at least 50% shorter given I was like, yeah nice nice but where are the waves, took a while...the thumbs I couldn't give a fark, its not my video ...cheers m8

Oh what a dream job it would be if it was my work mate. One day I will likely just do it as a hobby with more free time, getting me stoked like that epic grand final yesterday & the 100 - 300mm lumix G lens I scored off Ebay today that I'm frothing to test on a trip in the next few days...cheers

Enjoyed this

Couple of standout points for me were where concave ends under a board & board length. I surfed boards a minimum of 6'8 through the 90's into the 2000's, living in Margs, great ocean road & the NW. I now have a 6'1 that feels too short, a 6'2 that feels too long, a 6'4 that feels great in overhead, a 6'0 that feels perfect in up to head & a 1/2, plus a couple of other boards of the same shape 6 & 6'4 which I take out in the opposite conditions of what you would have thought you'd take them out in the 80's/90's...Its amazing what the various combination of width, length, thickness, outline, rocker bouyancy & flex can make to a board. Even when they're seemingly not too different. Just like the effect on the ocean, with winds, swell size, swell direction, swell period, reef, sandbank. Can be same-same, but so-so different.

Epic mick cheers for posting, only just seen this.
rate tomo boards they aren't for everyone but definitely put a bit of boogie back in your surfing
still ride a vanguard, I had an evo but that didn't last real long not ideal for down south. The vanguard for me was a next level magic board and this has put the desire to own a cymatic at %100
The next two boards on my procurement mission are
1: cymatic , actual length of board to purchase is debatable.... 6.0
2: rusty panda....6,4

As I have gotten older my boards have shrunk dramatically in length but probably have similar volume

Has probably been one of the best years for Bali Ifocus, yep spewing I didn't make it over too.

Surfboard development over the last 10+ years has been epic for us older mature age surfers Razz

In what I believe to have been a big marketting move by Kelly back when he first got involved with Firewire. This heat is a very good demo on how much better new surfboard design is today. Kelly on the 90's style "Banana" & Stu on the "Scifi". You can see how the old school rocker is pushing water, needing the wave to stand up to get moving, but still really slow. While the low rockered scifi is flying across the flat & Stu is able to generate heaps of speed. That Banana is great in sucky barrels through, I saw a vid of Kelly taking off pretty much as a wave is barreling over him, might have been cloudbreak. I'll see if I can find it...but for a decent allrounder most modern boards are so much better than the older designs, generally speaking...oh yeah & the Vanguardes, I know 2 people with them & they love them

JJF footage pov angle is epic from a capture standpoint, but for level of difficulty & novelty value I'm gonna go with the switchfoot air into barrel, switchback into another barrel at 1:18
