Re: that wetsuit discussion...

When mrs duck wanted me to teach the ducklings to surf I was diligent about it for a while and they feined interest in it for a bit. It usually led to me jumping on a coolite or longboard after their feined interest and surfing while they played in the shorey. On another note, shrug just left the b...

Yeah I had a need suit a few years back. Didn’t like the fit. Definitely good value though.

I must have a weird body. Some suits fit me really well, others not so good.
Same. Can’t take advantage of O’Neill warehouse for steamers, they just don’t fit me.

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

I'm going back to Xcel for a steamer shortly.

My current Quikkie one is at the end of it's life with tears and it was the worst wettie I have had in years. Have a Xcel 1 mm top and a 2mm springie which are both great quality and warm.

He's forgotten how to surf a heat. epic. Nick, do you think Kelly might be doing t...

Re: The Coolangatta Gold 2019

They haven't addressed the core issues with the format.

Too many surfers.
Meaningless round 1 heat (yet to see how this impacts the previously meaningless round 5 heat)
Competition too long
No incentive to go nuts on a wave and too much safety surfing.

The same as it ever was.

Re: post your modern day sickness

I reckon I'm bigger, heavier and older than you (and probably not as good a surfer).

Also worked out quite sometime ago that I surf what works for me, and not what is popular, cool or works for others.

Have been friends with him for 20+ years, great craftsman, great family. Would rather spend my money with him than a shaper with a mass produced model, could have got one over here but trust Ross enough to let him go for it.
