Re: Where did you surf today ?

I'm thinking of buying a semi-gun for around here as there's usually chop on the faces and McCoys don't really handle it well. It's no problem in Bali where it glassy or a few little ripples over 90% of the time. It would only be for up to double overhead, some local shapers seem to have this sort ...

Re: The Outsider

There’s 1.5 million hectares of open access land in England and Wales that you can roam to your heart’s content. Foraging as long as you’re not doing it for commercial gain is completely legal and you can fish and gather shellfish on all of our beaches (a few are private but nobody stops you), subje...

Re: The Outsider

I was just pondering foamy’s question to Nick and it got me thinking about the apparent discrepancy between the ‘live’ and ‘broadcast’ audiences. Most sports, if you’re packing out a stadium it would seem that you can assume x times that number will watch on telly or whatever but surfing seems to be...

Re: The Outsider

Steve, it seems that the Australian CTs are quite effective at bringing people to the beach. As someone who is well used to mingling with the throng, what’s your assessment of who they are? Are they surf fans and actually watching the action? Random punters attracted by an event? Beach goers who wou...

Re: The Outsider

Surfers aren’t the common man steve, they’re selfish cnuts as you very well know. I’m sure that you benefit indirectly and directly from Lennox’s existing tourism marketing so it smacks of rank hypocrisy when you get all bitey because it’s the wrong kind of tourism Huh? God, thats terrible thinking...

Re: The Outsider

Maybe not, but it’s a piece of the jigsaw I’m sure. My point is that steve and his merry band of nimbys took it upon themselves to speak on behalf of a community of 8,000 based on the wishes of less than 10% of that as expressed in a no doubt emotive and restrictively distributed petition. His respo...

Re: The Outsider

I’m still shaking my head in disbelief about it all. Do you think that the FIS (whose business model the WSL appears to have copied wholesale) wanders the chilly corners of ski resorts trying to win over the miserable locals with shiny baubles before they ask the regional governments if they want to...

Re: The Outsider

Surely local councils and regional governments are tasked with boosting their economies? I find it astonishing that they would acquiesce to a vocal minority. Sod the kids, won’t someone think of the local businesses who had the prospect of making some serious bank torn from them by a noisy bunch of ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I do think the days of CTs being big popularisers of locations are kind of cooked though. Like surf numbers, they're influenced by so much other stuff now. But isn’t this the exact thing that the underwriting of the Australian leg is predicated on? Councils throwing big money to have the contests t...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Where does the self confessed pro surfing tragic sit in all this steve? Will you be taking up cudgels with your oppressed brothers and sisters at all the other tour stops? Or is there a certain type of break that’s appropriate for WSL jamborees and for whose locals you care not a jot?
