'Fragile Egos' will be the name of the Panicked Mummies triumphant coast to coast tour of Australia, playing to full houses of balding, thickening men running from the existential dread by immersing themselves in their obsessions

He’s a proper geographer/oceanographer so I’m sure it has a rock solid theoretical foundation

Re: J-Bay 2018

Yeah but surely Nick that was when the comps were run by clothing companies, featuring the sponsored riders of said clothing companies and when surf media was a handful of mags featuring the comps and the sponsored riders of the clothing companies. Presumably nobody cared because a) there were too m...

Re: J-Bay 2018

Of course it’s better. That was surely never up for discussion. But, for the hundredth time, nobody is watching. Steve followed the numbers and they were risibly low. Lower even than when Swellnet did it a few years ago. So unless someone has a compelling solution for eliminating lulls and explainin...

Re: J-Bay 2018

Even some Lennox Head experts have a failure rate of 99%, steve. Some go whole years without catching a single wave

Re: Europe in September

Easyjet and Air France fly from Paris to Biarritz. It'll probably cost about £80 return in September - bit more than the train but three hours quicker. Probably what I would do is hire a crappy little camper from these guys https://www.campycamper.com/my-little-campy/?lang=en (150 euros for three da...

Re: Lost Puddle Jumper

He does like it. From memory, he added about 10 litres to his normal volume which might compromise its top end a bit. Or not

Re: Lost Puddle Jumper

Mighty Sunbird has one loof. I'm sure he can give you some pointers. Looking at it in some vids (admittedly under the feet of pros) it looks like it has a bigger range than you might think. ...lost does that type of board pretty well, I reckon
