It is an awesome website that has really interesting stuff on all aspects of surfing.


It is a web-based media publication that features
"insightful commentary from the global surf community’s most prominent and thoughtful figures.
It addresses topics ranging from surfing to politics to music and art with the intention of sharing a diversity of perspectives in an online environment".

Pt.1 Resurrection

So a snap is costly to repair, perhaps $140 - 200.

Not always worth it... but perhaps creating a brand new board from the same foam is...

I have never shaped a board, if I can anyone can...


1. Remove grip with heat, keep in tact it for later...
2. Cut the tail just after the side fins with a saw (keep leash plug)
3. Peel off glass, use gloves and any sharp thin tool
4. Use a pencil and ruler to mark up a shape
5. Shape it up with sander and a planer for the stringer
6. Add in rails and a single concave, just have a crack
7. Get it all smooth with a fine sandpaper

the rest... and the whole lot in a vimeo vid - coming soon!

John's Tale (excuse the pun)

That light blue tail saved John's life.

John was surfing Bombo when a massive set came. He bailed his board which then snapped leaving him only with that small tail to cling onto. He reckons without it he would have been the one put in a graveyard...

This project is not just about collecting the boards but also collecting the stories that go with them.

I met up with Martin this sarvo. We had a good chat about life, his veggie garden, and surfing on the South Coast.

He directed me to LETS www.auslets.org/sydney it's a community exchange program.

For example you mow someones lawn you earn 25 points
These points mean you can get something for yourself like a haircut.

Ha, no need for money...

I joined in an attempt to muster up some old surfboards. I understand clipart isn't cool but Freecycle is an online message board where people give away stuff for FREE, Get 100% off your next item, join the Illawarra group.
