    replied to Potatonator vs Baked Potato
    I had 5'9" BP and it joined the second hand rack in less than two months. I just could not get the thing to paddle into waves with speed. I kept getting flipped, dropping in late and missing waves....

  • Yes interaction with the cuttlefish made me drop the Scarfini quads in large to Shapers S5 thruster and the board lit up. Sometimes you just got to listen to others and take advice/suggestions. However,...

    Unapproved
    Somewhere between early 40s and mid forties your chemistry changes testosterone might drop -who knows. I am not a doctor so I am only talking from personal experience. Even if you keep fit and surf as...

  • I ride 6'2" Potatonator at 55 years and 85kgs. My son is 22and your height and weight - reckons 6'2" way too big. Potatonator has a lot of foam for length and very wide tail so it needs to be...

    replied to SP/Spit as a 2 board quiver?
    ant785,
    I think Justo is on the money a potato (sweet, baked or 'nator) for small and gutless then Unibrow for quality and size. I've gone Potatonator/Unibrow. Gave the Spitfire to my son as too...

    replied to Timber Tek moulding
    I have not had trouble with mould but I do not store boards in a bag. My son uses a bag all the time and his TT hasn't developed any mould but hot coat is wearing thin. I have heard of some TT boards...

    replied to Potatonator in Timber tech?
    Cuttlefish - a wise decision! My 6'2" in TT took a while to turn up but it was well worth the wait! It is probably the most fun I have had on 1 to 2 foot waves in years. I cannot think of how good...

    replied to 5'11 baked potato and (now what?)
    The Mayhem V2, Dominator and Potatonator are also now available in TT construction and would (pun intended) be a more performance orientated shapes. A little more rocker to get you down the face, less...

    replied to Unibrow in timbertek or FST?
    I have had a 6'8" Unibrow (same weight and older but thinner wetsuits 3/2 max in winter for a couple of weeks) for over a year now. Not a foot dent, the odd scratch and a little frosty near the tail....

  • Daco, that makes a lot of sense - my Al Merrick Biscuit came with what appeared to be tiny fins but it worked beautifully. To me the Potatonator rides with similar characteristics but I used large Scarfinis...

    replied to Two lost fins - sad and expensive incident
    FCS user since they started but went to Futures when I started riding Firewires. I am a convert. I have heard of the small lug at the rear of box breaking but never had the problem. However, a lot of...

    replied to New model "The Cornice"
    I am currently in Hokkaido and my Lib Tech is getting on in years. I'd love the cornice in 154cm but I cannot see where to attach my bindings!!!!!!!!! I don't know about "love to ride" a dick...

    FCS2 - THERE'S THE PROBLEM! If the fins don't fit then box is faulty- next time look the dealer in the eye and say FUTURES!

    replied to Volume higher or lower
    At 5'9" I'm fairly heavy - age and beer mean I'm 85kg at 55 years old. If I stack an extra 5 or more kgs on then I'll be getting into the supersized class for my height. My son is 6'3" and about...

    Keith, at present I am in Hokkaido - powder capital of the world. Let the carving begin! 22 days and floodlit nights then sushi, sashimi and sake, then back home to uncrowded point. Life is good! Hope...

    replied to Unibrow size guide
    Hey Yvibzh, wearing 5/4mm rubber in winter? Age? Surfing ability? These factors come into the equation. I am 55 years old, 85kg and surf 4 to 5 times a week. In winter a 3/2 mm steamer or 2mm suit. So...

    replied to Duck diving the Addvance
    An interesting idea - comparing PU foam to the open cell styrene foam used by Firewire. Would similar shape and volume float the same? Most board makers using non PU foams claim 5 to 20% improved flotation...

    replied to Age and Volume
    There are plenty of options for those of us who refuse to let age force us on to a Malibu (there I've written it) - Addvance, Dominator, Potatonator and its cousins. Then there are other manufacturers...

    replied to 6'4' review in real waves
    Keith, you don't seem to be having a lot of luck with that Timber Potatonator. Maybe it is the forces of nature telling you to ride it as a three finned beast! I'm still stuck with east coast 2 foot slop...

    replied to 6'6" Unibrow the right size for me?
    See my response in other thread. It might be a tad too small. But I love thicker boards.
