LEG ROPES BOARDIES WAX RASH | surfshopperegian

LEG ROPES BOARDIES WAX RASH | surfshopperegian
Leg Ropes Boardies Wax Rash

In the early days we used to lose our boards on the rocks, hit an occasional surfer in the way with a loose board, and swim a lot, as we didn’t have leg ropes. Those were the days, and we apologised for any injury incurred along the way.

Then a whole bunch of guys came up with innovative ideas with some that didn’t amount to much, but out of all this a “Leg Rope” was born.
This Leg Rope stopped your board from going onto the rocks…yeeeewwww!
This Leg Rope stopped the swim to the beach…yeeeewwww!
This Leg Rope allowed the frequency of waves surfed in one session instantly double…yeeeewwww!
Most of all, the Leg Rope stopped the board from hitting a lot of other people.
The only down side was that they had “Bungie” style elasticity at the time, and you had to be aware that they really did twang back at you superfast, and whack you in the face…not a good look. But we soon got the hang of the twang, and used them religiously. Leg Ropes didn’t take long to evolve into a use full surfing necessity.
This brings me again to the “Modern Retro Surfer” and the attitude towards “Leg Ropes” today (I will add here, If you are within a small group of like minded, and away from others you may be the exception)
If you are surfing within a crowd, with all levels of other surfers, on a busy day for example, First Point on any lazy Sunday in Summer, I don’t think it is “Cool” to surf any board, especially the likes of a Mal, with out a “Leg Rope“

Hayden Shapes Hypto Krypto : WTF

Hayden Shapes Hypto Krypto : WTF
 HAYDEN SHAPES HYPTO KRYPTO
HAYDEN SHAPES HYPTO KRYPTO was the next board of choice for our Surf-Shop team rider Steve Maloney who also operates Sunnycoast Klips and in his first session at North Sunshine was a complete convert to this Hayden Shapes Hypto Krypto. Stevo’s size of choice was a 5′ 6″ as he didn’t want to lose floatation and paddle power. “Sort of paddles like a dream because of that volume, and with that flatter rocker it lets you to draw fast flowing lines, and how fast do you want to go. Yeeewwwww!”

Retro Surfboard – Michael Peterson | SURF SHOP

– Delicious
Retro Surfboard - Michael Peterson original Joe Larkin shape made for Michael crossed my hands the other day and nearly stuck to my hands like superglue.
[caption id="attachment_3099" align="alignleft" width="612"]Retro Surfboard - Michael Peterson Joe Larkin for Michael Peterson[/caption]
Avid collector and Surfboard Tragic Darryl Homan was kind enough to show me through his collection of real Retro boards and he left this one to last. It actually is on loan to him from Carl Turner of Finch Swimwear fame.
This little gem of a board is in better condition than the photo shows (that's me stuck to it) and it has Michaels name on the bottom clear as day. This is the one he features in the iconic movie "Morning of the Earth" by film maker legend Albert (Alby) Falzon and if your good at stop frame on your DVD player, you will see the Joe Larkin sticker across the bottom making it easy to verify. By the way Joe Larkin was Queenslands first board manufacturer starting out in 1959/60 and cruising into the forever legend time. His biggest fan was Michael Peterson.

For the nostalgic Retro sufferers I've included a couple of "Morning of the Earth" clips and a photo of the "original Michael Peterson" (above) surfboard use through out the film.

[caption id="attachment_2833" align="aligncenter" width="615"]Julian Wilson Wins Julian Wilson, our local boy takes the spoils[/caption]
The local Coolum boy Julian Wilson Wins, the ASP Prime Mr Price Pro Ballito, beating Jordy Smith, from Cape Town, in a Final to remember at Willard’s Beach on Saturday July 6, 2013.
The ASP Prime Series ended up with the most anticipated match-up of this year’s competition - event standouts, Jordy and Julian, lived up to the crows expectations with inspired performances.
Julian said after the event “I’m really happy to get the win! It’s my third time in Durban and I’ve had a good result each time. I really enjoy it here, it’s a great place with friendly people”.
Julian said of this win he “needed to put everything on the line”, completing an extremely critical Alley Oop maneuver to score the first perfect 10 of this year’s Mr Price Pro Ballito competition and followed that up with a 8.93 slob grab reverse aerial maneuver.
Julian cemented his win with that and was chaired up the beach as the deserved 2013 Mr Price Pro Ballito Champion.

JULIAN WILSON WINS

Footnotes:-
“It was an honour to surf in the final against Julian, I’m just sorry I didn’t win it,” Smith Said. “Julian stuck that air and it was amazing. I went on a trip to Reunion with him and he tried it a million times and didn’t make it and then he goes into the final and sticks it first time!”

The Australian contingent proved the most dominant on the final day of competition, with Stu Kennedy and Mitch Crews reaching the semi finals and placing equal third respectively.

Stereotypes in the Workplace

Stereotypes in the Workplace
I'm thinking that Kirsty in some peoples minds just doesn't fit what some see as the stereotype of a surfy kind of girl, that would typically work in a Surf Shop, not being one that easily fits in with the language and the look. Yes, she is definitely not the surfy looking kind of girl. That's just the point I'm making to the 2%,... Just because a shop assistant doesn't look the part, doesn't mean...read more at  www.surf-shop.org

MAGIC MUSHROOM - Aloha Surfboards


Magic Mushroom - Aloha Surfboards

Magic Mushroom by Aloha Surfboards was the surfboard of choice just over one year ago. Stevo chose this board as part of his quiver primarily because this board got a good review, and it would suit a surfing trip to the Maldives to film at the Four Seasons Maldives Champions Trophy at the end of August beginning Sept. Magic Mushroom Stevo from Sunnycoast Klips talks about his choice of the Magic Mushroom, "It's a tad wider than a basic short board, that allows you to shorten your turn, surf tight, smack it round, and lets you generate speed on demand what you might need in nearly all surfing conditions". "This Magic Mushroom little board has seen the test of time and has with stood the vigorous use it gets on a daily basis. The deck doesn't look like some other boards that get a real pasting after one days use. This Mushie is in real new condition, and I attribute that to it's great glass job" said Stevo. Jamie willems of Global Surf Industry says:- "The extra width through the centre profile, and bottom contours are similar to that of a high performance short board. The hip positioned just forward of the fins, reduces the tail width to maintain the rail-to-rail sensitivity and response, of a much narrower board". magic mushroom

Magic Mushroom - Construction

Available in SLX Epoxy with Bi-Axial layered up glass construction, is essentially two separate layers of flat fibers woven together. The faint lines you see running from nose-to-tail on the decks of the boards is the stitching that holds these two layers together. The fibers in Biaxial Fiberglass are oriented at 45 degrees, compared to traditional fiberglass weave that’s oriented at 90 degrees". Questions, more questions. Evert from Surf-Shop Peregian asks "What are the advantages if using Biaxial Fiberglass"? Jamie Willems says, "The increased surface area of the flat fibers in Biaxial Fiberglass gives a stronger deck, and less chance of de-lamination from foot pressure. Round fiber glass can't match flat fiber glass adhesion". Mushy Toughie There for, it goes without saying that the Magic Mushroom by Aloha Surfboards GSI, is one tough little Mushy, ideal for anyone looking to maximize their performance and enjoyment as the photos of Stevo having fun depict. You can surf the Magic Mushroom a few inches shorter than your regular short board, but hey, flotation is everything in catching more waves. Get the Magic Mushroom advantage, by clicking the link for more information...go do it! You know you want to!

7S Superfish II – Forklift Damage


7S Superfish II – Forklift Damage
Its great when you are made aware, why the delivery of boards you were expecting, wern’t going to come at all.
You see,… some one ran over them with a Fork Lift at the transport depot (won’t mention the company) and then simply put them in a corner and didn’t bother to really let any body know.
We were on to the supplier and unbeknown to them, all things were going well, should have been in transit “but its hectic and we really cant trace them because of the volume of stock flowing” I thought that’s what all the computer tracking was good for…apparently not.
Finally, the moment we got word, replacement boards ...
