Hello from sunny Australia at the other end of the world... . Not as cold as Almaty, and a slightly different boating scene.
The RIB world is just beginning to take off here in the last year. Before that, no-one wanted one and it was all SeaRay's and Bayliners. Now, people ask me about the Gemini all the time...
In the last year, the demand for Ribs has gone banana's. You never see a second hand one advertised for more than a few days and long wait times abound for new ones.
Geminis and Zodiacs are the main larger ribs (5.0m plus) down here although we also see some big Naiad's (NZ) and Swifts (QLD) and Mako's.
When I can work out how to post the pictures, I'll attach a few action shots of wave jumping in the harbour and out by the Heads...
For now, you can look at the guy down the road at www.epicsurf.com.au
who takes tourists out in his 6.5 gemini
