GOATS CREEK JIM SCORES THE OCEANSIDE – OUR 79TH BOARD

13 June 18


We must be big on the Coal Coast as this is our third giveaway board to head south of Sydney in the past 18 months or so – and off to a “Goatie” it goes!

The Goats Creek Longboarders are a core crew from around Port Kembla, and father of three Jim Manoliadis is not only a foundation member but has been their treasurer for 12 years, and reckon he wasn’t rapt to win the Oceanside Surfcraft Noserider!

Finished to the nines with a full light blue tint and a “sanded smoke” filler coat, this 9’4” is shaped by Oceanside’s Dru Sheppard and dressed up with resin work by Rhino Laminating, and 100% made on Sydney’s Northern Beaches.

Dru grew up in Mona Vale, still lives, surfs and works there, and comes from a family of much-respected surfers: “The Noserider’s plan-shape is quite hippy with an 18.5" nose and 16.5” tail and wide point pulled right back. It has a smooth entry rocker with some decent tail kick for great hold on the tip, and a blended nose concave to rolled all the way through the tail. At 9’4” x 23” x 3” with pinched 50/50 rails, it’s our best selling log and an everyday favourite.”

We’re thinking Jim better keep an eye on this board the first time he takes it to a Goats Creek club comp, his mates on the committee were more than keen to join him in the photo and odds are they’re itching to have a crack on it.
