    Unapproved
    Nothing wrong with checking your board and wondering about it. It is a relatively new board construction method. My Spitfire was "borrowed" by my son and it lives a hard life with him at a coastal...

    The timber is water resistant and under the timber is fibreglass so the foam should not be taking on water. The original concept was to oil finish the timber but hot coat of epoxy is used. It was a bit...

    Return to retailer - mine is over six months old not a mark. The TT boards will get rub marks from rail saver and some board bags and after some time may need application of clear coat to re-seal. Sounds...

    TallMartin, glad to see you got the TT Potatonator. I ditched a 5'9" Baked Potato as I just could not get it too work (my fault not board). You are right on the money with your comments on the 'nator's...

    At my age a board with less volume is great for the first hour of a session but the wave count drops as you tire. But that 44 litre 6'2" works really well even when my arms do not. I'd love a smaller...

  • You just place the order with the shop and wave the cash under their nose let them do the ringing around and find what you want. Payment on delivery - that is capitalism. It might take time but you will...

    TallMartin - I'd be guided by the experience of Alex72. Remember the Potato boards really start to reach their limits in about 4 foot. Sure they will be okay up to 6 if it is fat and your using some bigger...

    I take my Potatonator and Submoon on small days, Unibrow and Potatonator if 3 foot plus. The submoon also gets used if waves are weak and fat or a certain little rocky bay turns it on. Long paddle, rips...

    At 85kgs my 6'2" Potatonator is a lot of foam for me(maybe too much) - goes really well in small and gutless waves though. I thought the 6'4" was way too much and a real big fella's board -...

    56 years old (nearly) 85+kgs and if you added a 7' Submoon, that is my quiver that you are thinking of getting. You will also flick the 6'8" Spitfire - I gave my 6'4" Spitfire to my son now...

    55 years under and hanging over the belt and 85+kgs so I ride a 6'2" Potatonator in fuller waves, sloppy conditions or slow swells that wrap into bays. It is 44 litres and all other Firewire boards...
