Reading Time: 2 minutes

Thursday in Sydney, Friday in Melbourne, and Saturday in Byron. 

And we’d be lying if we said that we weren’t a little bit excited about this one. Why? Well because the off peak North Shore was kind to us in the surf department, the crafts from some of the world’s finest left-field surfboard builders looked like they came straight from the rafters of Ken Kesey’s bus, and, well, Noa Deane: our perennial favourite.

As far as our Electric Acid Surfboard Test alumni go: Dane hacked the bejezus out of Mexican pockets. Steph flowed and swooped in African with predictable grace. And Noa, a man who rarely steps foot from his standard LSD speedster? Well you’ll just have to come along to the premieres to see the lines drawn by freesurfing’s enduring It boy.
