done & dusty

ok, so this is a little out of date but it took a while for the molecules to settle back down after the mayhem that was Sunday night at the Deus Temple... apologies to all my vital organs. Spleen, I never liked you anyway.

 ... good advice...

The crowd settles in for the shapers forum

Harrison's excited.. could be a contender!

Under discussion on the night was the practicality of the mini Simmons compared to the Fish design; the pros & cons of 60's style up-turned rails -v- 70's down rails; technical fin foils; v-bottoms and concaves. Bunker Spreckles received a special mention in regards to extreme surfboard development... pioneering the box rail and turning heads at solid Pipeline on tiny surfboards

Solitary Confinement

Queens Birthday long weekend delivered a swell that gave us waves up most of the East Coast of Australia. Tonnes of spots firing and according to Po 'he spent most of the weekend hangin' with the Dolphins'.
