A quick thank you to Warm Jet and Doc for their attention in their respective blogs.

I'd put links through to them but they're both at left as the Central Shaft and Surf in Oregon, so I can avoid the technology once again.
Much appreciated, both of you.

As an aside, I just had an email this evening from Derek Hynd. He said he's hanging in Jeffrey's Bay waiting for a swell... with a four foot no finner in the starting gates (!).


It sounds like a disc to me, but after seeing some of the stuff he's managed down on King Island, I think he'll survive.

Imagine this with a foot and a half cut off.

Mebbe I'm going to jump on the bandwagon with this one Mick...... yup a scalloped rail is in my future for sure!!

I know nada about scalloped rails...can you tell me what this does for the board, or how it affects water flow? I'm really curious!

Great looking board btw.

I think in your reply to Mr. Hynd (and in any future correspondence)...a stop for Musica Surfica to the wild coast of Oregon is a no brainer...

You know, besides unpredictable swell (either too big or too small), Oregon is well known for beer...

A surfer can dream...

And you know there are some unreal natural amphitheaters out here.

Maybe Skip will come if Derek invites him...he's never surfed in Oregon either.

Hey Mick...

Presumably you've seen this thread off Swaylocks also...

But it's a riff off a design from another Oregon legend...
