AKFF Select
April 2013

Welcome to AKFF select.

This is a virtual magazine of some of the best AKFF content produced over the month, with contributions from a variety of AKFF members (that had no idea they were contributing). The aim of AKFF select is to promote the best content to further encourage quality contributions from AKFF members. These select threads will be captured in this monthly magazine style format for the enjoyment of members and guests for all time.

Longtails! They breed them big, in plentiful supply and stupid in Queensland. It seemed that every second report on AKFF in April was some smug Queenslander powerlifting a small town's supply of sashimi aloft with a cheesey grin and long tales to tell. There could have been an AKFF longtail omnibus as the April issue, but instead we selected only one story at random to allow other states, techniques and species a share of these pages.

In this issue:

Trip Reports

Chemacky finds that a drenching from his first surf launch is a small payment for paradise on the Sapphire Coast NSW.
Eric, TFM, Biggee, Ronston & Kenza (I think) partook or perused the ABT tournament (I think) at (I think) Marlo Vic.
