Callum @clearsurfboards commented that the modern performance surfboard was at a pinnacle in the late 90’s, early 00’s. Agreed, pretty much everything since has been CNC dimension adjustment. Evolution? Where’s the revolution! The Sunny Coast’s Leigh Sedley laying down the marker for HB….2004, mentored by Heath @heathwalker07, shaped by Stu Smith. How good is this cutty….
@markonorati sent me this shot, posted by Mick Dyson. The shapes are all mini-gun models, three featuring very early production wings! Martyn mixed all his own colours using resin, styrene and acetone, sadly, resin loses vibrancy with age. The single wing pin shape was pretty much where it all came together… I’m having a little gloat over some of the waves my fave pulled me through. Yew! TF.
@andrewkidman just dropped this on me, Burleigh Heads a life time ago. Burleigh is such a nuanced wave, because it is not perfect, (although it can be) more of a challenge than its seemingly mechanical mates down the coast. Taking the ‘do nothing’ line didn’t score points, but, hey, when the feeling is perfect, why spoil it? A Stubbies, maybe a Dick Hoole image….
Guess we can wait for climate change to raise sea levels a metre or two, then sit back and watch the first 100' swell go over the top and blow these things away.
Beaches are public assets, sadly needing all the protection they can be given. Thanks to Brendan and Team at Surfrider Northern Beaches for fighting this fight... and to Drew at Surfrider AU. Yew!
