Oldfartsurfer No 45, Rouge, was so inspired by the Mexican's (OFSC NO. 4) performance on Bob the 7' McTavish Bobsled that he invested heavily in getting one for himself. Rouge sent through the following comments from the initial sea trials of Bob 2.
"Went to Manlys this morning and swam 1 km with some mates from Shelley into Manly beach (we are training for the Cole Classic ocean swim on sun 5th Feb.). chucked my board in the car, so I could catch a wave after the swim.
(Rouge getting to grips with the way Bob 2 turns)
My mate had his camera on hand and ripped off a few shots. 1' swell, light onshore. Bob revelled in the conditions . Still getting to grips with the board, strange the way it turns ..."
(Rouge not on carving Bob 2)When the Mex queried Rouge on the turning the oldfartsurfer replied "it just doesn't carve like my old board" .
A few weeks later, after a bit of practice, Rouge the following photos through:http://www.surfphotosofyou.com.au/
(Rouge getting the hang of Bob 2)Can Bob 2 carve and Rouge just needed to make some adjustments for the quad fin set up? Judging by the stylish photos of Rouge it seems he is coming to grips with Bob 2. Could it be that Rouge is so stylish and accomplisted he can ride anything? It takes two to tango. We would like to hear the oldfartsurfer No. 45's view.
(Rouge and Bob 2 in the groove together at last)
The Old Farts Surf Co. wishes Rouge a speedy revocery from the hole in his head and hope he didn't loose too much gray matter.
