Best east coast boards

Were Walt Phillips 'Strawberry Shortcuts', Blue Chip 'twinnies' or McTavish 'trackers' the progressive east coast board in the 70's?

Phillips cut down the typical 9' in 1970 to compete with McTavish's tracks laid down with his 8' on Honolua Bay (Plastic Fantastic) and worked well on Matunuck and Montauk walls; twin-fin design by Blue Chip also bogged down like Australian prototype (don't know name,but had stars on deck?) and only worked when howling fall offshores met rare ground swell.

I challenge Tom to explain how a surfboard works and wave dynamics; it'll be more semi-literate misspellings, pidgin 'english', and boring ramblings, but go ahead TOM- make our day!

Lay off the dude !  Tom's right about you.  You insult him more then you talk about the subjects of the forum.  Tom.. to answer your question about the surfboard you asked about. it's Ultra light Surfboards. But they went out of business 22 yrs ago.  Don't let these piss ants piss you off.  You may have bad spelling, but you have a higher vocabulary. Their just losers who have nothing better to do with their lifes the single you out for stupid superficial reasons.  They probably surf less then you do.

I told both you boys that not finishing continuation school would be harmful; now, you and Tom have to clean the fish weirs in St. John's and receive therapy for attacking that nun. Shame!

RE: Best east coast boards

The concave deck, 8' board length, and lighter fiber construction put  MacTavish trackers out in front of poorly functioning twin-fins and old school pop-out logs. Warren's poinnt has 200 yd. lined-up walls where the tracker excelled; to the oafs, how boring and tired you are!

RE: Best east coast boards

I bought my first Surfboard from a VB native in 1986. One year after I bought my Mach 20 RS Bodyboard from WRV. Way back when Morey was still making foam boards.
My most recent board is a Longboard I bought at yet again WRV, And my Bodyboard is a Tubes board that I picked up in Duck Outfitters in the Obx. Both boards are at the cottage, so I am looking to buy one Bodyboard really cheap and also another Longboard, until I head back to the banks in June. How bored are you ?
