Do tell...how about your thoughts on the 6'10" vs the 7'2"?
I'd be willing to bet you a large sum of money you'll want to buy a 6'6" Addvance next.
White Spirit is what I use to clean off sticker, deckgrip, wax crap from my boards - cheap and works great.
The 6'10 is a bit more manouverable than the 7'2 as expected but still so easy to catch waves. It doesn't quite have traditional shortboard performance but these Addvances stick take offs like no bodies business, makes me look a heck of alot better than I really am. A pitching beachie, if I can nail the take off, the rest is a bonus :)
Yes I have given some very serious thought to a 6'6 !! Might have to demo one but I thoght at 95 kgs I might be pushing it a bit too far!!
Bet the AMT Robbers would work really well.
Spied your El feugo at Beachbeat?
The 6'6" will handle 95 kgs well.
Much better than the El feugo for me.
I demoed the 6'5" in sucky, 2-3'ers at Byron main beach and it wasn't long before I paddled in and switched back to the trusty 6'6" Addvance.
^^^ That's right Cuttle. I have now had a couple of boards thru Gary now and quite happy with the advice and the deal.
Good stuff...Sutto (Gary) and Woodsy know me well.
All old Alex/M'dore locals (but no localism).
We all appreciate the different designs available.
Got "Splendour in the sand" on tomorrow morning opposite the shop.
Hey Cuttle, what do you think of the 8fter of Gary's. Quad with a double concave that runs right thru the board, and I mean right thru to the nose !! Gary gives it a big wrap but I have not seen a mid length bottom like that before.
