Other board is a newer 6'2" with a bit more volume (1/4" wider) but very similar graphics.No pics yet.

Whats going on with everyones wax? :shock:

Freddie - looks like you may have gone OTT on the surftech! :wink:

And all of the other pics have no wax on so they are either newly bought piccys are you dont use em? :?

I always look for the dirty blck front foot patch, usually a good givaway to a decent surfer :wink:

No wax as the pic was taken moments after I got the board home from the factory be assured I took the next day off sick and got it wet. :lol:

that was back in Feb. and after a bit of a clean it still has a good shine quite a well finished board I reckon,

Me too I had to trade in my ex's long board for that little shiner, I was thinking about a Beach beat Fat boy flyer what do you think 8)

The chap who shaped my egg has just started messing about with some samples of different style cloth. go to http://www.atlanticsurfboards.co.uk/sur ... urfer.html

Cheers for the link JL, crazy ideas - aluminiumised cloth? :? Looks pretty cool but dunno if it has any other benefits? I'd guess it'd be quite a good board in warmer climates as it'd reflect a lot of heat (like the metalic board bags)

Carbon/Kevlar are pretty old designs these days, seems like the research and technology is too expensive for it to be cost effective though! Tufflites/S-cores are the way forward in that field. :wink:

Ive heard good things about the FBF and I'd imagine if you predominately ride a longboard that would be the best option - speak to Chops! :P

How are those boards different hoff? Like in what conditions do you use each one?

The one on the right was too thin so I was going to get rid of it but I creased it. The other one is pretty much the same, just flatter rocker and a bit thicker, but now I've creased that one as wellImage

ahhhh yes! how do you do that, managed to get that look on my old bic but that was by letting a steroid pumped neathanderthal tighten my roof strap as it was flapping and annoying him...tool

This was wife's board after our Portugal trip last year - Must have taken some serious baggage handler abuse...

Hoff - Quite weird creasing them but not snapping them. Must have very strong stringers or something?
Did a bodyboard style crease on my old 6'3" in Byron after a big tumble - Loads of little creases near the nose.

lol, that wax job on the surftech was so bad, i re-did it when i put my tailpad on it and i got some nice humps, my other board hasnt been waxed yet as ive only had it for 2 weeks, and not been able to too get a lift to the surf :evil:
