Mike and I were casually yakking with Steve Del Rosso of Clearwater Surfboards about a local bloke who ordered a kneelo off him . Understandably ,  he in turn was perhaps discretely picking our brains for  directions or tips he could take into the shaping bay  ( then Mike showed him his skitail and nothing made any sense ) Can't blame him really because the last time he put planer to foam for a kneelo was for another local bloke at least 10 years ago and the results were not surprisingly  ,ahh , guesswork at best . Really just a fat version of one of his surfboard models and I guess what else could you expect .
Gray just flicked  me these images of the owners newie , hope you don't mind Radar , and I'll have to stubbornly confess it's an impressive effort . Those of you who are familiar with my opinion about surfboard shapers butchering a kneelo attempt will be surprised to hear this but you have to agree it is proportionate and even the fin placement does look well...........right . Would be interested to know the dimensions Radar just to confirm how much guess work on Steve's behalf went into it .

No Fitzy , no Katana but definitely the best local effort I've seen in 30 years .

Club Meet

its the last weekend of the month this w'end so pencil in Saturday for a club meet if you are keen,
there is nothing planned as Gray is pretty busy but if the swell and wind are as per the forecast
then lano/wedge could be a go......usual spots

Friday update...a few guys going up, chance of a new swell arriving, some guys heading for lano first and trying to head north from there (bit of a risk but rewards could be there)....maybe ring around on the way up to see whats going on...
apparently no banks today at back beach......
