good australian boards« on: March 30 2008 01:03:00 »
hey im in the Melbourne area for a couple of moths for work and i couldnt bring my board with me. i wanted to pick up a board while im here. I dont really have time to have one custom made. im a bigger guy so i usually get something a little wider and thicker.

Man if I was in Melbourne i'd go and check out Andrew Stump.
I got one of his boards years ago and had to phone him to tell him it was a masterpiece.
I got it in Ballina and it could be a one off.
I gave it to my son and even a Porpoise got under it once and got into a series of movements uner it a Byron.
(I reckon it was geting off on the shape)

Kunk check Zaks boards if your looking for something cheap and made by independent shapers or for a killer board try Bean at Balin in Rye.

Jim Banks is too expensive.
