Re: If you like surfboards

Second pimping attempt by you Mark Blast on this thread. When I started this thread it was for riders with no commercial interests to talk about the custom boards they had/liked. Not for the usual pushing of a product by dealers with some sort of commercial interest, and even though JP makes custom ...

Re: If you like surfboards

Jason, Nice to see. Looks a lovely shape. Mines still going great with no dents or damage still. I will be back to him for sure too when I need a replacement. Looks like Roberts Ill/ black punt template with a bit more nose volume and a channel. Hope you are well, I’ve had a pretty lame 12 months ki...

Re: If you like surfboards

Looks a nice shape. I can't do Camber tomorrow as have a hospital thing. I ride black airush waves and my board is white with a blue rail and deck pad, I always wear a white helmet too.

Re: If you like surfboards

Wow, not been on here for a while. Great to hear, I'm sure you'll love it. He makes a great product, and he really involves you in the process. Mines still going great, no dents and it's clocked up a lot of riding, just had my best session at Camber today for a couple of years, turned on a wave out ...

Re: Custom boards

My Luke Young board has been awesome, you should talk to him. He kept my template, but will do whatever you want and keep sharing the progress for you to tweak.

Year in, no issues with it at all and performs excellently.

Re: Kiteboarding Dubai

I have been to Dubai every year for last 10yrs, used to take my gear but gave up. You can get the odd windy day, but generally its big kites. You need to be careful which beach you use as only a handful are allowed for kiting, as most are public or private but not kiteable. Also from memory there ar...

Re: some safety stuff worth a ponder

Great post. In 2007 when kiting at Southend on my new Rebel, I got a wrap round the bar end after a wipeout, it looped uncontrollably, dragging me backwards as my leash was on harness back, I could not turn to fix the wrap or reach the leash QR as the water pressure was too much coming over my head ...

Re: If you like surfboards

Just playing around with the circular pads, they don't trip u, and give some tactile sense to your feet about where they are. Don't like too much padding as it detracts from the feel, I'll probably lose the 4 up front as they're unnecessary. The boxes are the super strong fcs with the boxes bonded t...

Re: If you like surfboards

I've had 2 Amundsens, 3 BWS, a Stretch thing, 2 Roberts hydroflex, a resin 8, FireWire taj and countless cabrinha, north production surfboards and my Luke's shapes board is as strong, light and really high performing as the best of any of them. Will get my next one from him again for sure. Give him ...

Re: If you like surfboards

So time for an update; My Hydroflex Black Punt has been superb but as ever fancy a change, particularly as I have been nagging my mate Max to get off his Circle One boat. I gave him a go on my Roberts Hydro and his smile was a mile wide when he did, so I'm letting him have it. So rather than get ano...

Re 6m Section review

So got out on my new 6m Section today, have been on Airush Waves last 3 yrs the 9/7/5m which have been fantastic and longest I've been on any type of kite in 16yrs, however fancied a change and wanted to reduce my quiver to just 8&6m as I only bother if it's blowing. Did video today's session at Cam...
