Wow excellent to see the passion out there

But boy you guys must be a confused bunch, in some places the wind forecast changes from morning to lunch to the arvo, which board do you take must do your head in.
If you choose the wrong board are you upset after the session
So how many boards do you actually take to the beach if you have so how many.
anyway good to see the photos out there

Kind Regards
Walt



I only live 1.5 km from the beach. Bit lucky. I usually choose 2 or 3 boards if I'm unsure. We have it all sorted here so quite often it's a no brainer. We obviously take more when we travel out of town.


I take 3 every time , seems to cover it .,if its 20 knots the big one stays home and the tabou rocket takes its place in the trailer

Here is my shed disaster, I need to get from behind the computer and build some more racks. Not a mainstream production board to be seen!

carbons not cheap ...i reckon they would be big bucks ...but they sure do look good and obviously sail well .
the dug out nose is interesting ,i guess to make the board lighter and less foam in a bigger board ...less wind catch ..
might even act as a spoiler to keep the nose down ? thanks for posting Phil ,I've never seen them before .not that i get out much .
very nice boards

Tardy, Falcons similarly have reduced volume around mastrack n forward. Just flattens out as nose thickness reduces.

You guys are very brave balancing your boards so carefully like that (either up against a wall or stacked on top of each other).

A small slip and it would fall over and likely damage the board.

I like to keep my gear perfect so with any damage then I would feel like selling the board and buying a new one. But I guess if you don't mind repaired cracks and splits, then don't worry too much. Just watch out for light winds and slippery surfaces with your balancing acts.

Love the look .. Germany mustn't get as hot as Australia.. I love my black Exocet but I always have to make sure it's not out in the sun or open the vent plug..

Wow. Just wow. They look the ducks nuts. I bet you bought that pool just so you could test float them too.

Perhaps one day when we've all died and gone to heaven we can all have them. Or we can all sell our souls to the devil and get them now?

Here you can get one. No idea whether he would ship t to Australia and if so at what costs, though. The seller is the person who builds them as far as I know.
Wow: 152 liters, 6,4 kilos!

$5 brackets from Bunnings already have foam padding on and eye screws for the bungys. Most space efficient way I could think of Dave. Still get van and suv in the garage.
