^^^ I found with the Mrk 3 you need more weight on your rear foot, you've also got to shuffle around on the thing to get the best out of them, especially if your riding one over 6'. Once you've found that sweet spot... They are fast!

I agree, those Mk3s are awesome boards and work in such a wide range of waves. They definitely enjoy some punch and a lot of weight through the rail in carves... they are pretty much impossible to spin out

Cheers guys.

Had it out in clean shoulder high a couple of days ago, really flew, backhand especially.

My latest board from Bro and Paul at Diplock Phoenix -

6'9" single fin travel/winter board. :-)

Image

Image

Image

Image

Glassed reasonable light and with a lovely gloss deck polish.

Currently all I'm running are single fins/2+1s so just put an order in for a 5'7" bladed out Lis fish but as a quad but very tempted by a flex stubby that they have just shaped for a friend. It looks amazing.
If only there was a simpler way to get difficult things done.

My new longboard, replacing one that was stolen this April, but love this one much more than the original modern-ish lighter popsicle. It´s pretty hard to find anything but thrusters down here so i was v.v.pleased to find this, from a french shaper living in spain, secondhand in vgc for only 250squids
9'1 x 22 5/8 x 2 7/8
Heavy traditional single-fun log, Volan glass, 50/50 rails, foiled,sleek and solid all over. A beautiful blue bullet!

2nd hand for some fun and fitness. Feels very strange paddling around standing facing forwards. Bambi on ice.

Board number 6, I am getting the hang of this collecting now.

Two sticks from the man who brought you "How to drive to Australia" and "Fixing a landcruiser with some Emery Cloth while the tide is coming in".

First one is an incidental purchase, a 6'2 swallow tail I was lent for a trip to Bali just after Xmas, I took two other boards but didn't use them so figured this one is a winner, MugOfSunshine kindly wrapped it up in a good price with the 2nd board below;

This one is called #13, I would tell you the dimensions but I didn't look closely, it's 6'2 though :-D

Image

Image

Image

This is a special one, I asked MugOfSunshine if he would make me something to give me a bit more of a chance to get into some slightly bigger waves round the spots we surf on the Sunshine coast, this is the result, 6'4 x 20 x 2 5/8, easy entry through single concave out the pin tail 5 fin set up at the back. A stringerless EPS blank with carbon fibre and Kevlar rail wrap, Nylextra hybrid basalt mesh deck patch, jute tail patches glassed in Entropy bio resin, quite experimental but I can say without doubt it will do the job, I just need to grow balls big enough to do it justice, I do know that while surfing with MugO and ShackAttack I will get plenty of 'encouragement'....

So close. It's a single layer of organic hemp/cotton combo on the bottom and a single layer on the deck too. Neither are wrapped 'cos it's too bloody hard, but the Nylextra hybrid cloth with basalt strands (the black bits (yes basalt as in the ingneous rock!!)) on top of the deck hemp/cotton is wrapped (it does have a nyextra mesh deck patch too which is kinda like wedding veil material) and of course it has the carbon kevlar rail tape too so the edges are well and truly taken care of. The Entropy resin is 50% plant based.

Oh, as most of you are already aware, I'm Mug of Sunshine too :)

Nice, i appreciate the green credentials of entropy, but at 700 bucks for 30l, i understand why many people don't use it.

Well, I had the 6'4 out at well overhead Cabarita last week on Australia Day, me and about 80 of my new mates :) I got my allocation of five waves in two 1/2 hours which wasn't bad and the board goes magnificently. Stuck a couple of pretty late take off's, smooth off the bottom and felt really solid on the face. I have never seen Cabs breaking quite that good, I think every point in QLD and northern NSW must have been pumping its tits off :)

Look at the deck on that Royal! Either that's seen very little use or its some quality glassing! Lovely board.

I've got that "just placed an order" feeling! .......now I just have the weeks of anticipation bit! :-D

Had it out a couple of times so far. Nice and smooth to paddle compared to my shorter boards bur still easy to duck dive. I've only surfed it with a single fin so far (and it's a while since I surfed a single so still getting used to the transition) . Loads more manouverable than my old magic carpet though and holds in the face a lot better. For instance I dropped in on a mate (as you do) thinking he was too deep and pig dogged it left .He suddenly popped back into view about 2 foot below me on his 8ft beaten up door. I thought I was in trouble as the wave started to section on my back but I just dug the inside rail in and shot ahead of him holding a high line just ahead of the section which took him out. Result! No damage and a successful drop in on the greedy longboarder! :-)
Other than that I can't tell you much as I surfed like a kook for much of the session !

Excellent stoke Jay. :-)

Here's my latest from the Diplock boys. 5'6" quad -

Image

Glassed much lighter than I normally have them. Only had chance to take it for two quick surf in ankle slappers but it paddles so nicely. I know, as always from Bro and Paul, it's going to be a good one. :-)

Haha! Cheeky bugger... Greedy? Moi? Trash talk me all you like but diss the unsymmetrical bender thing at your own peril! You'll be pleased to learn the 'beaten up door' as you put it is now retired to the scrap head after taking a meaty South Welian lip (misnomer?) to it's chops. Back surfing the ducttape supreme again, still gonna snake the bejesus outta you tho
