    Core, well my surf this AM was like, absolute nonsense, first light 05.30am and there must have been 40 guys out for dawn patrol - ay carumba! Offshore and a good solid overhead wave - I took off on the biggest closeout of the day! One of those days I caught lots of waves but they were nearly all bad, the one good wave I had, I had to bail dropping out of the lip from a re-entry to avoid colliding with someone paddling out. My best other wave; 3 of us on it! Solo would have been nice. You're another day closer, keep busy and forget about it and suddenly it will be here.

        Yep, I also had an absolute crap surf today. 6am and half of Sydney and the UK surfing. Got 2 half decent waves and stuffed up one of them (luckily toward the end). Every wave I paddled for Bryan Fletcher ex rooster and rabbitoh was furiously paddling next to me - yours.

              Looks like it's swung NEly now which is more cross, potentially slightly cross/offshore at certain places so hopefully tomorrow there will be some waves about.
              Highlight of my week is getting my figures sorted out for my tax return to submit at the weekend and hopefully get a rebate to pay for a board and maybe a little trip to France...

                    Haha nah. Apparently just after easter is a good time to go to the Hossegor area. Minimal crowds, starting to warm up and potentially great waves.

                      Was going to order from a dealer in UK but as I was about to a 5'8 FST Spitfire popped up on a "surfboard for sale" website over here in UK. Thought id take my chances and save 200. Its pretty much brand new condition with like one compression mark which can only be seen side on. Check it out, Stoked!!!

                            Hellfire you're looking at a higher performance hybrid while the Flex and the Michel's are both on the high performance.
                            The hellfire will be more user friendly than the other two.
                            I would put them like this:
                            hellfire , MB , Flexfire in terms of forgiveness.

                              Yeah. To me, the Flexfires are pretty needley in the noses and low volume throughout that they really want good waves to excel in. I'm not talking good waves by UK standards either, but good waves by anywhere's standards.
                              The Michel however is a little fuller in the outline and packs a bit more volume but has a slightly more exaggerated rocker, meaning that it'll still be fully high performance but will still work in slightly lesser conditions as long as there's some steepness or punch.
                              I think the MB is a perfect choice for someone wanting an all round shortboard that they can ride more often.

                                Cool, Sounds good. Thats what id be going for an all round shortboard. What about the hellrazor compared to MB? and what size would you guys think for me in both? also is the taj now discontinued?
