Modern Blackfish
This is the Fish Funboard shape in the Modern Surfboards range. Though targeted for the beginner to intermediate surfer, this board can deliver performance for the experienced at an unbelievable price. Surprisingly responsive for its size, the Modern Blackfish has a domed deck, performance rails, and a narrow tail outline, all of which serve to add bite and control in larger conditions when driving off your back foot. The reliable thruster set up has also been configured to suit a wide variety of waves.
Modern Blackbird
The Modern Blackbird funboard is targeted at progressing surfers, for surfers that are still on the learning curve but are moving towards intermediate status.
The smaller sizes in the Blackbird, 7’0 and 7’6, have an FCS thruster set-up, meaning they’re ideal for lighter riders that are starting to link their turns. The 8’0 and 9’1 are both built with a 2+1 fin set up delivering more traditional performance as a single fin, or with the side bites for larger more powerful surf.
Modern Retro Log
The Modern Retro is a single concave Noserider in the Modern Surfboards range with heavy glass on a PU core with a classic resin tint. The Retro model is all about glide down the line and hanging toes off the nose. They’re easy to ride Currently available in 9’1″, 9’6 and 10’0
The entire Modern Surfboards range is designed for having fun. These surfboards have a classic look, will excel in small to intermediate surf, and will stand the test of time.

Julian Wilson Wins Mr Price Pro Ballito

Julian Wilson Wins

Julian Wilson, our local boy takes the spoils

The local Coolum boy Julian Wilson Wins, the ASP Prime Mr Price Pro Ballito, beating Jordy Smith, from Cape Town, in a Final to remember at Willard’s Beach on Saturday July 6, 2013.
The ASP Prime Series ended up with the most anticipated match-up of this year’s competition – event standouts, Jordy and Julian, lived up to the crows expectations with inspired performances.
Julian said after the event “I’m really happy to get the win! It’s my third time in Durban and I’ve had a good result each time. I really enjoy it here, it’s a great place with friendly people”.
Julian said of this win he “needed to put everything on the line”, completing an extremely critical Alley Oop maneuver to score the first perfect 10 of this year’s Mr Price Pro Ballito competition and followed that up with a 8.93 slob grab reverse aerial maneuver.
Julian cemented his win with that and was chaired up the beach as the deserved 2013 Mr Price Pro Ballito Champion.


“It was an honour to surf in the final against Julian, I’m just sorry I didn’t win it,” Smith Said. “Julian stuck that air and it was amazing. I went on a trip to Reunion with him and he tried it a million times and didn’t make it and then he goes into the final and sticks it first time!”

The Australian contingent proved the most dominant on the final day of competition, with Stu Kennedy and Mitch Crews reaching the semi finals and placing equal third respectively.

Stereotypes in the Workplace – Surf Shop

Surf Shop – Stereotypes in the Workforce
About three years ago a young girl out of high school presented her self at my Surf Shop and asked me if I had any positions available. I had quizzed her about why she would like to work in a Surf Shop, and thought at the time she didn’t fit the typical stereotypes in the workplace of a Surf Shop. Her answers to my questions were typically cliche, but I might add, were answered with enthusiasm. There also seemed an eagerness in the way she answered, a true positiveness that was refreshingly different. I replied “not at the moment, but I’ll think about it, and you come and see me in three weeks time”.
I didn’t think to much about it over the next couple of weeks and to my surprise this young lady came in and said to me “Well I’m a bit early but I didn’t want you to forget you talked to me” This young lady is called Kirsty, and she is now a major part of the day to day running of my Surf Shop business at Peregian Beach. She is an integral part of the Surf Shop Peregian Beach operation, and even more so to my wife, who has adopted her as another daughter.
Now where is this all eluding to, well, over the last three years and now more recently I’ll be specific and point out that some male customers, (the 2% I’ll call them), have from time to time addressed her in ordinary language, derogatory name calling on social media, and also added body language in store, you get the picture, that she is female, doesn’t surf, so what would she know about surfing and running a Surf Shop.
Kirsty in her Grom days surfed a small surfboard, so she did surf, but life has its twists and turns and took her in other directions, and one being employed with us at Surf Shop Peregian Beach, and we are glad for that..

Stereotypes in the Workplace

Stereotypes in the Workplace

I’m thinking that Kirsty in some peoples minds just doesn’t fit what some see as the stereotype of a surfy kind of girl, that would typically work in a Surf Shop, not being one that easily fits in with the language and the look. Yes, she is definitely not the surfy looking kind of girl. That’s just the point I’m making to the 2%,… Just because a shop assistant doesn’t look the part, doesn’t mean they don’t know the job.
Kirsty takes it upon her self to become knowledgeable in all things that pertain to the Surf Shop and the products we sell, and in some cases she knows more about the products we sell than the reps that sell the stuff to us, and that is the case with Kirsty at Surf Shop Peregian Beach.
When doing this draft my mates have commented “why give the 2% any time of day”…I say “you have to start some where to reduce that 2%, in this perfect world”.
To the 98% of our male customers that are pleasantly surprised at her knowledge and service, and often thank her for her for that, we in turn thank you for your patronage.

And now a little light relief…enjoy the klip!

Great vid but its fake, and you can see that because the waves come from Sydney Harbour Bridge Parramatta direction, not the ocean direction. Decide for yourself.

Magic Mushroom – Aloha Surfboards

Magic Mushroom – Aloha Surfboards

Magic Mushroom – Aloha Surfboards was the surfboard of choice just over one year ago.
Stevo chose this board as part of his quiver primarily because this board got a good review, and it would suit a surfing trip to the Maldives to film at the Four Seasons Maldives Champions Trophy at the end of August beginning Sept.

Magic Mushroom
Stevo from Sunnycoast Klips talks about his choice of the Magic Mushroom – Aloha Surfboards, “It’s a tad wider than a basic short board, that allows you to shorten your turn, surf tight, smack it round, and lets you generate speed on demand what you might need in nearly all surfing conditions”.
“This Magic Mushroom little board has seen the test of time and has with stood the vigorous use it gets on a daily basis. The deck doesn’t look like some other boards that get a real pasting after one days use. This Mushie is in real new condition, and I attribute that to it’s great glass job” said Stevo.

Jamie willems of Global Surf Industry says:-
“The extra width through the centre profile of the Magic Mushroom – Aloha Surfboards, and bottom contours are similar to that of a high performance short board. The hip positioned just forward of the fins, reduces the tail width to maintain the rail-to-rail sensitivity and response, of a much narrower board”.

magic mushroom

Magic Mushroom – Construction

Available in SLX Epoxy with Bi-Axial layered up glass construction, is essentially two separate layers of flat fibers woven together. The faint lines you see running from nose-to-tail on the decks of the boards is the stitching that holds these two layers together. The fibers in Biaxial Fiberglass are oriented at 45 degrees, compared to traditional fiberglass weave that’s oriented at 90 degrees”.
Questions, more questions.
Evert from Surf-Shop Peregian asks “What are the advantages if using Biaxial Fiberglass”?
Jamie Willems says, “The increased surface area of the flat fibers in Biaxial Fiberglass gives a stronger deck, and less chance of de-lamination from foot pressure. Round fiber glass can’t match flat fiber glass adhesion”.
Mushy Toughie
There for, it goes without saying that the Magic Mushroom – Aloha Surfboards GSI, is one tough little Mushy, ideal for anyone looking to maximize their performance and enjoyment as the photos of Stevo having fun depict.
You can surf the Magic Mushroom a few inches shorter than your regular short board, but hey, flotation is everything in catching more waves.

Hypto Crypto HaydenShapes

Hypto Crypto HaydenShapes
Hypto Krypto from the HaydenShapes range by Global Surf Industries is definetly is the most versatile board in the Crib.

For starters it paddles like a dream because of the volume, and the flatter rocker enables you to draw fast flowing lines at speed.
The old school style rounded pin tail will give you plenty of hold and draws tighter arcs in the pocket even in the bigger stuff, and provide a lot of curve around the back foot, and with the wider straighter outline forward on the board, gives you speed down the line. Yeeeeewwwwww!

Haydenshapes Hypto Krypto
5’4” 19 1/2” 2 1/4” 27.08 ltr Future HSS 70kg / 154lb or less
5’6” 19 3/4” 2 3/8” 29.7 ltr Future HSM 75kg / 165lb or less

6’0” 20 1/2” 2 3/4” 36.56 ltr Future HSL 90kg / 198lb +


Although the rocker of the Hypto Krypto is relatively flat, Hayden has snuck in a little extra lift to add some curve up front, this helps late take offs, or turning in the steeper sections of the wave. The design of the rocker has been focused around speed, and more speed! “The Hypto” has never been shaped as a quad because it is too fast already, you’ll find yourself making sections down the line that you would never expect to make” says Jamie of Global Surf Industries.
Continuing…The foil has plenty of volume around the chest and center area of the board, yet it refines out to a thinner, more pinched rail to keep the board connected to the wave. The concave runs from a rolled vee in the entry, to a slight single transitioning into a vee double out the tail, which gives the board great speed and control from rail to rail.
Overall the Hypto Krypto is the one stop board that you can travel all around the world having fun in great to average conditions even in the barrel or open face when the swell pumps! What ever your game to do.

7S Superfish II Forklift Damage

7S SUPERFISH II Forklift Damage
7S Superfish II Forklift Damage and its also great when you are made aware, why the delivery of boards you were expecting, wern’t going to come at all. You see,… some one ran over them with a Fork Lift at the transport depot (won’t mention the company) and then simply put them in a corner and didn’t bother to really let any body know.
We were on to the supplier and unbeknown to them, all things were going well, should have been in transit “but its hectic and we really cant trace them because of the volume of surfboards flowing” I thought that’s what all the computer tracking was good for…apparently not.
Finally, the moment we got word, replacement boards are on the way, and our customers waiting for these will see that “” happens as the trailing photo will show.

Can these 7S Superfish II Forklift Damage boards be fixed?

Some one could probably claim that, but what price to pay when you are dropping in on a four foot screamer, and on the turn, the front snaps up and knocks your teeth out, and the tail rips a hole in your but!
Thought I would just share this story, and like I said, the proof is in the pic.

Every thing except the tread marks

This 7S Superfish II Forklift Damage was irreparable.
