Lost and found in Cape Town? Board lost at dolphin beach yes

Hi,

I lost a board (twin tip, core) yesterday at dolphin beach (it could have drifted all the way down, direction big bay).
Is there any local forum for lost and found in Cape/Town you could recommend?

Thanks!
Cheers,
Julio

RPM 12m. Loops

Hi,

I would like to purchase an rpm that loops decently. I know the rpm 10m can do it.

Interested in opinions,..
Cheers,
Julio

Kite position in the wind window for waves

Hi, How does affect the natural position of the kite in the window to its performance in waves?

Long bar for waveriding

What others do you know?
Im interested to know if they have more than 45cm depower stroke too

Thanks for the feedback.

For big (overhead or more) waves I'm using the Vanguard, but I was thinking to buy something maybe with a bit less volume and width. I don't have a lot of experience thou...

Future fins. Remove after session

Hi, Is any of you removing future fins from his surfboard after each session to simplify packing? It doesn't look like it will hold many cycles, but maybe I'm wrong. I know about the existence of fcs2, but all my surfboards have futures. I am interested in feedback from other people in the same situ...
