The wave of the day does it for me big time. Nice work Steen Barnes , Shaun Anderson and Swellnet.
In one photo you've encompassed everything nice about surfing. If I was a wanker I'd say that it was perfect except for the fact he is in a wetsuit. Which it is , it's perfect .....except for the fact he's in a wetsuit.

Don't worry about it Shaun. I remember you were honest and upfront about your lack of English skills all those years ago. I reckon you've come a long way since then.

More than can be said about some of the stuff you see these days. Ever read the mainstream news? God, some of the spelling and grammar there can be attrocious and these are paid journalists.

I'm wondering if English is even a core subject in school these days?

By the way, where's the spellchecker in Firefox?

It's a 6'8" single fin shaped by Stuart Paterson at PCC.

It looks beautiful.

Very similar outline to a board I used to hire in Indo regularly after needing it once in desperation due to a snapped stick of mine on a great day. The Balinese owner would never let me buy it, so I'd just hire it all the time at this break at a cheap rate. It was brown as the inside of a meat pie and crew would openly gawk at me paddling around on the thing .

But it was magic.

I ended up snapping it as well , unfortunately .

Cheers Stu.

Any idea of its dimensions ?

absolutely the best yals wave i've ever seen, board doesn't look that big anyone know how this lucky bastard got himself onto this wave? Not that the wave is crazy huge but its not an easy wave to surf without some volume under you. If he paddled well, he's a frickin champion.

Glorious looking wave with a nice skyward spray from a well timed reo.

Photographers name is rather unfortunate though - John Cumpstay.

Fancy trying to yell that name into a girls ear in a noisy nightclub.

Hi Guys
Terry is still around, still ripping and hand shaping fookin awesome boards in his shed.
If you want to see more follow his Instagram account TERRY_RICHOSURF
If you want to find out more about his boards, there is an email address on Instagram.
They can be delivered worldwide and you can even pick them up from his house and he will tell you some awesome stories.
Terry hasn't stopped shaping or surfing and will shape anything. His boards are unique and because he's getting a bit older now he only shapes max about 50 a year.
The Instagram is new and a website is coming over the next few months
Cheers
