For all I know, it was mostly probably Geoff I kept seeing

Here are some pics of my 2 bad boy mccoys--
The blue one is 6,2" x 20 1/4 x 2 7/8, its the one geoff shaped for me and is now going to be waxed up after about 3 years hanging from the roof!
The other one is pretty much the same sizes, its shaped by darren rodgers whos was geoffs understudy, i bought it second hand in byron in 2000, i met rodgers when i dropped in on his girlfreind, he came over to fill me in when he saw his old board, he was chuffed to see it still going and told me his girlfreind designed the colours based on the rastafarian colours.
The rasta board has seen loads of action and is covered in repairs and has had thr fins reglassed on plenty of times s that one can stay on the wall, the blue fella is still in ace condition.
The other board os a single fin pipedream 5,10" circa 1979-1980 shaped by murray bourton, i emailed him pics of it and he remembers shaping these boards and again he was chuffed to see it still going, in fact its in bloody good condition, i have never ever waxed it up (i know at total waste) but im waiting for that perfect day (been waiting 6 years so far!)
There you have it, my australian board story collection!

I never saw any energetic young rippers on them.
Having said that, younger guys wanting that more cruisy approach all seemed to ride the Beau Young wombats and the like. So it might be a generational thing, I dunno.
One thing is for sure, the nuggets cruised into waves way before the other boards.
