Re: Ask Carroll

As a surf writer I've had a range of experiences around the issue, I've had the most success with it when I've been guided by my own surfer's sense of what's appropriate. Like if I am visiting a spot or surf zone at someone else's invitation and it's kind of unknown, and the person is concerned abo...

Re: Bong in big trouble

or was it the catalyst? probably more of a symptom what does this mean for the wsl tour riders? do they have to pay their own way on tour, now? what about dane & ando? ... it's my understanding that hurley are maxed out on their contracts – and top heavy ones at that, so i wouldn't expect hurley or...

Re: Ask Carroll

Gday Nick was just reading about some uproar regarding a video clip posted on the Inertia website of some waves in Kauai. As a lifelong surf writer where do you draw the line on what to publish and what remains untold in the media? What do you make of the Kauai Locals stance on such matters? I can ...

Re: Ask Carroll

Nope no soft top for me. As for Mark and Jamie I don't mind the video clips they produce I would whore myself out if I was capable of too in that situation it's pretty harmless. It was when I read the model of the soft board and looked it up on their website I saw JOB had a signature model. I guess ...

Re: Ebay Bargains thread

I'd have to agree with Nick. There are far superior ways to launder money than shitty old boards. As an insight, those low tier property developers who like very expensive black European cars who don't seem to need to borrow any capital for their new block of units comes to mind. When I asked some ...

Re: Ask Carroll

Nick do you think more surfers will get themselves catch surf soft tops because Jamie O'Brien and Mark Mathews are surfing them occasionally in sizeable swells? Also has that what big wave surfing has become for some whoring themselves out to whoever pays the bills then publishing it on stabmag.com ...

Re: Ask Carroll

I can't really recommend any of those, to me most of them seem like they're more about themselves than about surfing. A lot depends on your age and attitude to things. For some people it might work to do some other sport as well, like tennis or something, for the social aspect and to engage themsel...

Re: Ask Carroll

I have read previously your swimming programs so I wont ask about those I can look back and find them. I guess to answer your questions yes I do have access to water for swimming, waves could be a variety of beach breaks, points and reefs from fat to heavy and sucky probably up to around 4 to 6 foot...

Nick on the fitness front what sort of training regime would you recommend for a weekend surfer with an aim to maintain and improve their fitness for surfing whilst being restricted to weekend surfs?
