    Wave pool in Jackson, NJ

    We have a Wave garden here in Melb Australia right next to the airport in an industrial estate. I get there 4 times a year or so and its $79.00 Oz dollars for an hour session. You usually catch 12 to 16 waves and like Jory states above you are pretty done after a session. There are 5 different...

    Thanks surf1ing yes Urban Surf in Melbourne is a great venue to test boards and fins out as you usually get a good 14 to 16 waves in a session. The Mango Jam isn't the best paddler compared to the CJ thunderbolts as they have a lot more volume but its probably the buoyancy (60 litres) I should...

    Yes definitely agree.....Had a blast at the wave pool on it. There is a new setting at the wave pool that's really a bowl like a mini macaronis or Angouries and this board's rocker just fitted into them perfectly. Surfs really vertically really surprised myself on a few lip hits and just slashes...

    I managed to pick one up second hand a couple of weeks ago. Walked into a surf shop on a roadtrip to another coast and there it was in the second hand racks so couldn't resist. Not a mark on it other than dirty wax. Looked like someone had surfed it a few times and didn't like it. I surfed it in...

    CJ Nelson Outlier reviews?

    "hates any kind of single fin or “retro hipster sh*t”Its funny" The waves down here really suit Hi Pro LB ing and they were everywhere 10/20 years ago. Now hardly anyone does it. In Oz Old mal rallies/comps were a big thing and everyone down here (strong shortboard/Hi Pro stronghold) thought you...

    CJ Nelson Outlier reviews?

    Our breaks both beaches and reefs all have deep channels making paddling out fairly easy. If caught inside I generally just belly board back into the rip and go around again way easier than multiple duck dives at my age. I find the paddling speed makes it pretty easy to avoid getting caught...
