Re: Where did you surf today ?

Meanwhile I am hiding down the south end of Manly on low tide (due to other duties)....on these days I apply my motto of knowing one's level of incomptenence

Re: Pipe Masters 2017

John John is world champ (Medina knocked out in quarter finals). And agree, Pipeline is the place to have the final event of the year (even if the surf is not great there is an aura about the whole place - waves, crowds, close to the action for broadcast, history).

Re: Just general surfing stuff

And Quick/Rip/Bong still sponsor 5 of the 11 events while 4 events have NO lead sponsor (Marg river, Bali, tahiti, surf ranch). Doesn't say much for global coverage and advertising bucks flowing into this dynamic Olympic level sport.

You do wonder how this model continues to survive ???

Re: Kelly's wave.

And the 'model' works 20 hours a day (4 hours for machine maintenance and cleaning) for 365 days a year. Just wait until places like Dubai build one - all part of the airport experience.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

NB's Tuesday and today. The run of swell just keeps giving and pretty good fun out there (but crowds although lots of them really don't know what they are doing, apart from getting in the way).
