epoxy outrage

This forum is for SURF topics such as localism and rants that are usually negative in nature.

pop outs will never replace hand crafted

never, hand shaped will survive

[quote="redliner"]I have two fish(es?). Both 6'5".
One's epoxy-not a popout-but not custom.

The other board Nick Nolte-I mean Bates, made for me.
Did Bates shape that for you while he was in Kauai? heard he went big>>

He did that one in Dec. of 05. I've ridden the crap out of that thing and looks like brand new. It's a chunker- like almost 24 wide and super thick with lots o glass. Single wing,medium v swallow. It's basically the Killer Carrot,- fat guy style.
He called it the Nomad.

The other board is an off the shelf ...lost twin fin fish.

I'm pretty sure Bates had one hell of a time over here.He was here for a month. You could say we had some fun..
Ask him sometime...!'s the SooLoo visit that's got me concerned.
At least the jail is outdoors here.
It always gets good after everyone leaves.

Don't personally own an epoxy but I've surfed several to death and I like them, until it gets a little choppy it seems like they are too light and bounce around too much, also epoxy is by far harder on the environment from what I understand unless they have changed things
