    Correct. dammit. It's sod's law too - the one weekend I have nothing on, no prior commitments, the kid's going on a sleepover, I have all the time in the world to call my own and it's flat. I call it 'Groovn Syndrome'....

    It's that 9' retro-looking one I bought at the end of last season. It's a bit of a dog really, but I liked the spray on it. I joke to my friends that I bought the world's most expensive board bag....lol

    It's a proper nose-rider (massive concave under the nose and everything, I've lugged it down to the water a few times and had a few rides on it but it doesn't seem to like me Suspect

    I reckon you should maybe look at a 7'6" mini mal Kat.
    Good all rounder.

    Yep, fish will work for ya Kat.
    I'm in the market for a newy but cant decide whether to stay around the 8' mark or go for a nose rider. Different style required to what I'm doing at the moment - the Waterhog is supposed to be surfed like a thruster - well I try Laughing
    I'm quite interested in checking out a McTavish Eightball - 8'6" model - they claim it's good for quickies on the nose.

    Yea for the Mounties Exclamation
    Swellmap showing a huuuuuge (not) 1 foot NE groundie for the weekend with light SSW in the morning.
    It's gotta be better than the tabletop ocean we've had for the last two weeks eh?

    I'd take 1 foot at present. Yes I am that desperate (and fortunately also short enough that 1 foot looks like a reasonable sized wave to me :p)

    I'm in The Grinder multisport event this weekend, two days of it, plus I have to build a floor for a shed I'll be having delivered shortly. So this weekend's not looking promising for me Sad But if that 1 footer is out there first thing Saturday morning I may just have to find time go there!

    You guys need to move to Christchurch.

    Downsouth and I had Magnet at 3-4 foot with a firm offshore this morning for 2 hours by ourselves. God I love mid-week surfing. And hate weekend surfing.
