  • Newsflash...Baked potatoes on the menu in Australia BBQ's now.

    I was talking to JaM71 on the telephone about new board choices and brought up the likelihood of Baked potatoes already being available in Australia.
    He's down the Gold coast and so suggested he give Firewire at Currumbin a call.
    Just got a text from him leaking the news that there are Baked potatoes in the warehouse.
    Can't wait to get my mitts on a demo.
    Hoohaa!

    I'm a mobile fin tree.
    Just got up early to check the bouy readings (Mooloolaba) and they've hit 7-8 metres again just like the last big swell from 2 weeks ago.
    The wind is from the Sth and if it stays like that it is going to be on at my local with no need to go to Noosa.
    Suncoastslop picked a hell of a time to:
    A. Register on the forum with his handle.
    B. Pick a sweet potato as an allrounder for the Sunshine coast.
    C. Get injured and miss the last swell and for all I know miss this one as well.
    Are you out there Suncoastslop?
    The best Autumn and early winter of waves for the poor old Sunshine coast in how long?

    If you want to try it as a thruster just get a cheap centre fin, either buy or loan one from a surf shop.
    I was having fun with the EA blackstix and deviant fin until the last huge swell followed by lake-like conditions.
    Cool idea, can i borrow yours for the next 6 months!

    Imagine, someone doing a thing like that, the cheek of it.

    Yeah guys the baked potato was initially designed to be a quad and we made the running change to add a center fin so all of them being built currently have 5 fins.

    Hoe this helps!!

    Hey i was a bit worried after prjwebbs post that it may have been the potatonator especially when it is a quad on the website - it is definately the baked with 5 fins and it goes great. On my 1st two surfs it picks up waves better than the sweet even though it is basically the same volume as the 52 sweet. So far lovin it and cant wait 2 have a few more surfs - goes, turns, and paddles well for a small wave board - think it will get better with a few more surfs.

    Unless I just bought a 5"3x21 1/4x 2 3/8 potatonator with a baked potato sticker on it!

    That is cool!

    I'm not sure how well that wide tail will work as a thruster, i'm thinking quad plus nubster as a better option

    All Sweet and Baked Potatoes are quads.
