Anyone here riding Bonzer's? Came across the Octafish design today which looks pretty sweet and then down the rabbit hole of looking at various other models and options.
Thinking they would fly on pointbreaks but may struggle on beachies?
I've got a 6'4" bonzer five. I rate it highly!
prefers better surf but i found the extra fin hold useful in hollow beach breaks. Have also surfed it at some of the mid coast points and it was hoot.
6'2 x 19 1/2 homemade Bonzer 5.
6'6 x 19 3/4 Russ Short from Malcolm.
Nail a turn on a Bonzer and you'll hear angels singing.
Both, of course! (But I meant angels).
Angles or angels?
Six of one, half a dozen of the other, according to your friendly local mathematician...
Don't let the bastards grind you down
Really nail the turn and you can hear the angles acutely.
Stop being obtuse Stu and just answer the man's question.
island bay ..theres a 7'8 pipeline bonzer by Malcolm.. - for sale Bonny Hills NSW that will give you a stiffy- facebook marketplace
Udo, you're the Nr 1 detective!
Yep, that's a beauty.
I got three bonzers including a 5'10" Octafish, 6'0"Mini-merk and 7'0" pintail.
gimme a minute and I'll have a bonzer rant.
If you ever want to have leave of that greenish one Mr Channels....
I have a self shaped 6-7 5 fin bonzer and had a 6-4 that I eventually snapped
Amazing in the barrel
Hang in nicely on critical take offs
Fast without pumping - so much that I had neighbours comment on waves I caught and made on the 6-7 (anyone noticing waves I ride is unheard of)
Finally imho they have a nice stringer centric feel and very easy to get on rail via the single fin and Vee Double concave
Yeah I am a fan
stringer centric feel.
thats a nice way of putting it.
