Corky Demo report from James
Whilst on a quick trip down the coast with my beautiful wife, we stopped in at Noosa Longboards.
I had the absolute pleasure of meeting the one and only Tom Wegener. He is an absolute legend and amazing shaper. He is such a humble and genuine bloke."
It just so happened that Granite's was pumping this day. There were probably 40 surfers out there and getting a wave was a bit of challenge.
I couldn't believe how easy these boards are to paddle! After a long wait on the inside, I realised I'd have to take off right out at the heavier peak if I wanted to get a wave. Hesitantly I took off on my first wave and not surprisingly got worked. Determined to snag one of these near perfect waves, I paddled back out and took the next wave that came my way. I took off a little earlier, I set my line with my right hand dragging and I was blown away by the how well this board held in the pocket. The board flew down the line and I struggled to pull it back in as we raced out onto the shoulder."
