Re: that wetsuit discussion...

They're Decathlon's own brand. Some stuff is ok but the wetsuits are pretty bargain basement

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

My old RC ultimate elasto back zip had a poppered dog collar that would keep the batwing nicely in place. You could interchange it with the poppered hood if you were so minded. It is entirely consistent with my cost cutting hypothesis that this option should no longer be offered

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

Any return of the back zip will be solely driven by the desire to maintain profit margins as cheapo new entrants drive down retail prices. That there appears to be a marginalised demographic of angry tetraplegics incompatible with the vastly superior chest zip is just the icing on the cake for the w...

Re: Strahan tassie

This is just glorious Realsurf action. And it's not even 2018. Handel's Water Music needs to be playing. There need to be dueling pistols. And seconds. Now who would make worthy seconds for these two gentlemen? Godsave's, obviously Loofy. Shearer's, probably dayrl. Loofy can't even hang his own tel...

Re: Strahan tassie

Oh Australia, how needy you are. I know you want it to be special, steve. Different, somehow. But really, your USP is the weather and even that seems not so terrific when you examine the facts rather than the tourist brochures. Friend of mine, spent a year in Sydney. Said the waves were shit the who...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I think godsave should join me on the bukit for a solid bali surf trip. I can show him the uncrowded spots and we can both wow the locals with the superior ability bestowed upon us by the magical lazor zap. Go with Cranked, Goddy. He has this "priority" thing they're all talking about, all sewn up ...

A Laser Zap would have been tempting, but only at the right price.
The lemon plumper is still in my shed Cranked. Cross my palm with some of your boomer gold and I'll send it back with pet next time he's over

Re: Strahan tassie

Cranked's stats look fine, digger. Rain and cold doesn't stop you doing anything, just make sure you get everyone the right clothing, the right thickness wetsuits. I was down the beach with the kids on Sunday in fact: 4 degrees and drizzle and they happily spent an hour and a half looking for shells...

Re: Pipe Masters 2017

You have posted a superbly shit stirring post. Australian's as over enthusiastic blobs devoid of glib European like analysis I think you misunderstand me Thud. Blakey is a good commentator. Not 'good for a surf commentator' good but actually, properly good. I was just referring to his accent; he se...

Re: Pipe Masters 2017

Some thoughts: Ronnie Blakey is, head and shoulders, the best WSL commentator. Despite his enthusiastically Australian delivery, I genuinely look forward to hearing him. He has reached a point where he is actually enhancing the heats he calls, and that's about all you can ask for in a commentator. W...

Re: Sri Lanka to the Maldives

Independent travel's a relatively new thing in the Maldives (last ten years or so), so it might be tricky I guess. Depends what you're intending to do. Speculatively flying into Male and hoping to pick up a spot on a boat probably won't work but if you book in advance with someone like Surf Atoll (h...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Jonathan and Alex clearly looked at different weather forecasts that morning. Can you remember what the correct choice actually was Al? Beach dude or minicab driver?

I was just thinking about airplanes blowing up. We're you flying reconnaissance low over the Board Riders Pointscore ctd and collided with the club historian's drone?
Al, am I dreaming this or have you previously been in a plane crash?
