    Fitz I looked at your post for anything which I would be interested in replying to but couldn't find anything, it's just vague vibe stuff which I'd rather pass on or has been covered previously.

    Here are the first couple of waves on the Ghost 12 after 5 months out of the water. The point at Manu Bay Raglan had a small swell which only one other rider apart from ourselves was interested in, even though it is NZ's most crowded point break. I slid a few before the swell died feeling while feeling very 'rusty', and then spent a couple of hours chatting with an old surfing acquaintance from my home break while the kids swam and rode paipos down past the boat ramp. A good day all told.

    Roy I like how you keep a patua fin on the dash of your boss van. That's bad ass dude.

    How far away do you live from that break?

    Charles it's Badass for sure, that's the fin from the new Hotkurl. I had one wave on the new Hotkurl before slipping off because i hadn't waxed close enough to the rail. Board was absolutely hammered on the rocks even though it was a small swell... it high tide it breaks right on to the boulders. Anyway the fin was smashed off and we got a hole on the rail/bottom transition, plus about 20 dings and scrapes. Fortunately I also brought the trusty Ghost along. I have a spare fin, made from much stronger heart Kahikatea.

    I'll post the first ride on the Hotkurl later, even though I don't look very confident... it's 12 years since I rode one and the whole short session I think I was trying to ride the 12-9 Makaha. It's interesting to see how the concave and tucked edge directs the spray downwards off the rail rather than upwards as it does with the soft pinched 50/50 on the Dragon or the round 50/50 on the Ghost. Hotkurl felt very loose, she'll be good once I've dialled in.

    First ride on the 'Hotkurl'... just feeling my way but lots of potential there, and repairs are proceeding pretty quickly:

    Lol, I know what's coming though as I had an almost identical board back in 2001, to put it mildly it ruled.

    What happened to the red one ? And I'm sorry to hear about the new hot curl on the rocks.
