Default Bro rc Bodyboard 'er

Howzit Guys !

Been working on a PRODUCTION Bro rc Bodyboard since my original custom went viral about a year ago - its been a challenging year, developing the various methods of production - especially the Polyethylene roto-moulding process - but happy to say " we have it sorted now - looking forward to some serious Bro Fun Bodyboarding surf sessions..

Murphy's Law ! - made a huge effort to get out and demo the onboard camera footage - only to get back and find "nothing was recorded !!! reckon it could well be a faulty disk ! ..Bumma !!! - anyways - still enjoyed anothe Clas-Sick BroFun session - surf had some size - very bumpy side-shaw face - was very impressed with the Bro's overall balance when popping across the bumpy wave face, no nose dives - had a few vert drop-ins which it made with ease ... handled some serious abuse in the shore-break - Lekka !

Things are starting to look 'Colourful in the workshop and I'm feeling 'Blue ! ...Popped in at the Roto-Moulding factory today to SEA how they were going with the initial batches-WOW ! Brought a few colours home for my next rides - even the black board POPS ! .... Still a few more colours to come -Lekka !
more info: for those of you who have not been following this - the Production Bro rc Bodyboard is produced of Polyethylene using a roto-moulding process - this delivers a very clean and seriously tough product , well capable of enduring the rugged stress's when surfing the ocean.

so enjoy soaking up the sights and sounds of the beach, whilst pulling into another Clas-Sick BroFun surf session, breathing in the fresh salty smell of the ocean, whilst slowly sinking into the warm white sand beneath my feet ... leaving one totally Chilled and fully STOKED ! ..
Very Addictive ! ....purely medicinal - lekka !

Like every surf session, the surf depicts the potential of rides one is able to have. This session delivered a small, clean'ish wave face, yet slow and mostly lipless, which reduces the likelihood of big air maneuvers. Still..thoroughly enjoyed the face carving, bottom turns, cut backs, lip slides, even a few small el-rollos, AR'S and one or two Inverts ...Authentic Bodyboarding = lekka !

So looking forward to SEA-ing the Global PRO Bro rc Bodyboarding surf sessions being shared, as we start shipping them out to there eager riders, all around the world .... Sharing the STOKE !

for more info: email - dominicyoung@iafrica.com - fb Bro********

Very sad to arrive at our local break, to find one of our local Sammy `Seals deceased on the beach. We are assuming that he/she drowned after been overcome by the stormy sea conditions we have had in the Bay with the SE howling relentlessly over th epast few days ... RIP SAMMY ...Happy hunting in your new realm of life....
