Surf Designs Australia “Epic”

Surf Designs Australia “Epic” designers of surfboards and related gear.

Two just arrived and interest is really good on these two. The “Epic” malibu is 100% home grown constructed on the Sunshine Coast. This board is a great hot dogger, nose rider, and a classic all rounder. Each board has a one of a kind spray job and channel bottoms.

The “Epic” has a slightly tapered nose to a gentle point which allows for that little extra nose lift and a shave more concave. This concave then flows down the middle of the board. The rails are a tad sharper down to the double concave to the fin area is not just an ordinary double concave, but double concave with channels.

Though the idea of channels is not new, especially with short boards, it has been largely over looked as a design feature for Mals, so the design feature and placement of these channels in this “Epic” model makes it unique. The shape and placement of the two channels on both sides of the fin and between the side bites running up the stringer, are in optimum position for a performance outcome.

“Epic” with “Channels” are all individually designed so you will not see the same color design repeated on this range. This board really rips, holds the turns and drives fast down the line and if looks ever counted it’s eye catching. It’s optimum size is 9’1″ but custom sizes to measure are available. Surf Designs Australia “Epic” available exclusively through Surf Shop Peregian Beach.

“SHAKA”greeting to you too is a hand gesture that sometimes gets mixed reactions and open to different interpretations. We would have to go back a long way to discover the origins.
One theory says it dates back to the Spanish explorer times greeting the Hawaiians with the suggestion of a drink which was greeted in return as a “Hello” gesture by them, and they would respond almost like wise, with their interpretation of the “SHAKA”greeting to you too.
So we can assume it originated, as a return gesture of friendship by the Hawaiians.
Has been suggested in later days, the Hawaiian “Shaka”greeting to you sign, could originate from a misinterpreted, suggested pub trip, and “time for another round”. Another good will gesture no doubt.
Generally speaking, it is classed as giving a friendly bird, and now days it meaning has changed with the times, to mean “hang loose”, or to “chill”, and be “laid back brother”, whether he is or not.

“SHAKA”greeting to you too

It can be used as a positive reinforcement. If somebody did something good, cool, or great, you can give them a “Shaka”greeting, as a sign of approval. It can also be used as a welcome/goodbye sign.
Most people would give the “Shaka”greeting, as a sign of “Wassup” or “Hello”, or use it as a way of saying “goodbye”, and even use it as a “thank you”.

Now just for a bit of useless information regarding, the most people to ever stand on one surf board is 47, that’s according to the Guinness Book of Records. The most surfers to ever get on the same board was 47. The surfboard was scaled up to 12m and the 47 surfers boarded at Snappers Rocks, Queensland on 5 March 2005.

Gabriel Medina Wins Fiji Pro Over Nat Young
Gabriel Medina has regained the #1 position on the ASP World Tour Ratings following his recent win at the Fiji Pro. In the final Gabriel defeated Nat Young surfing with the FCS II Performer PC Carbon Large fin template.

Medina wins FiJi Medina Wins FiJi Pro

Medina Wins FiJi Pro

The smaller conditions also prompted Medina to make some calculated changes to the FCS II fin material he was riding throughout the event.
“I was riding the Performer PC for some of my heats because it has a little more flex in the tip, but for the final day I switched back to the stiffer Performer PC Carbon so I could make quicker transitions and push even harder through my turns.”

Medina Wins FiJi Pro

Huge congratulations go to Gabriel and Sally for stitching up a double victory for FCS II in Fiji. At last count 9 of the top 16 men, and 9 of the top 15 women were actively riding the new system.
The extended clip is only available with adds at full length…But enjoy it all!

Since its inception into the market the FCS II system has won industry design awards, two ASP World Titles, and numerous WCT victories.

CARBON VECTOR CONSTRUCTION 7S Fish Surfboard delivers superb performance by collectively harnessing all the flex character of Epoxy combined with the strength of Carbon.
So is that clear?…
Carbon Vector technology allows for a stringer less construction, with high density EPS core which is then laminated with Biaxial fiberglass layer, then a distinctive Carbon fiber webbing which is positioned on the bottom, and curved up over the rails, then finished off with an Epoxy resin that also has good anti uv properties, that keep the board whiter longer.

7S 14 super fish 3 clr cv CARBON VECTOR CONSTRUCTION 7S Fish Surfboard



What the Carbon fiber webbing does, is to evenly spread the tension over the entire surface of the board to help produce a lively, yet controlled flex pattern with exceptional memory recall.
The Biaxial fiberglass covering the deck adds to strengthen and reduce even further to prevent delamination. Carbon Vector constructed boards (CV) feel pretty dam fast are light and extremely responsive in all surfing conditions

Owning a Surf shop and stocking Quiksilver and Roxy does have it’s advantages. they have a little thing called a Corporate Box, where they invite clients for a few days viewing and event watching right over Snapper. Oh, and did I say great food and a beer or two to while away the occasional hooting.

The guys got in the water as soon as the event was over for a bit of free time, with Mick putting on the hard face. He needed to, because he was sharing the line up with two hundred people in a fifty metre take off area, along with Parko and Kelly. Mick got the biggest barrel and totally smoked about twenty guys in the line up. Never seen so many guys panic all at the same time to get out of the way. Apparently when these guys put on their surfing face, it’s written all over them “look out take no prisoners”. They just surf like no one’s there!
Mick Parko and Kelly were doing their thing…Rippin’it to shreds!
It was tough for all these guys, as every one was clambering just to be in the surf with all three World Champions at once.
Just another day on the world tour for three great champions Quiksilver Pro Mick Parko Kelly

Noosa, the play ground for some rich and famous from time to time.

summer swim Noosa

Weekend Warrior Events Noosa

Celebrity spotting comes and goes as fast as a Massimo ice cream with out much fuss. The generosity of the people visiting Noosa that to many are called tourists, mingle with the locals with out much fuss, and opt for the front stalls in the local cafe’s are all part of what has made Noosa and it’s surrounds a vibrant place to stay and visit.


Now, I must say that Noosa again envelopes the beaches down to Peregian. Thanks for that, and maybe if all goes well, include some well known hinterland towns into its area as well. Enough for politics.
Noosa Nationals
It’s 4.30 am and I got a park down in Nationals by just five spaces, whipped out my McTavish Evo “Epic” board, waxed up and got my gear on. You see the word had got around that there were some waves around at the points. Having been starved of a decent surf for a while I thought I’d get lucky. Nope.
The points were fairly crowded already with a fair bit of bump action going on, and also some lost boards on the rocks from those that persist the purity of log surfing needs no leg rope, no sympathy I’m afraid.
Making my way forth the popularity of Noosa was as ever apparent, with at least a bus load with their boards making their way behind me.
As a local i think its only right that we do go out of our way to let the tourists get value for money here, if we don’t then they wont come back and our economy will go south.
You know i think I’ll go back to the car, get dressed and wait for the guy to set up his coffee machine and let the tourists have some fun…sounds patronising, not meant to be.
$5.00 for a medium flat white fits the bill and yeeeewwww Cyclone season is coming!
