SURFERS

Surfboards are like ice cream. There’s always room for more. With cancelled overseas trips and border restrictions, surfers have been ordering a variety of flavours from their local shapers.

True connoisseurs hand shape for every taste, like macadamia ice cream (roasted maccas hidden in the creamy vanilla), which gives that longer satisfying ride. Real-fruit fusions are for those who love fast, sharp “acidity on the lip” experiences.

Then there’s the one-shape-fits-all Neapolitan variety: vanilla, choc, and strawberry. Cheap, bland, and it doesn’t matter if they mix together because it’s the same sickly-sweet flavour. And what follows a nasty sugar high can be as depressing as buyer’s remorse.
