Re: Autumn

I'm just casting my mind back to 2015 and remember there were quite a few south swells, which would have been good in your neck of the woods. Not so good this side of the border, unless you want to duke it out with 500 people on the points.

Re: General snow stuff

This looks pretty gnarly: La Liste Young skiing phenom Jérémie Heitz challenges himself to ski 15 of the Alps’ steepest 4,000-meter peaks in just two ski seasons. To do so requires enormous physical endurance and superior mental fortitude. This is a new frontier in freeriding. EDIT - Just watched it...

Re: PAIN RELIEF

Digger, I'm sure your doc can prescribe medical canabis. Edit. From March. Not sure if that's what you need but it's all I've got. All the best. Doubt it... well, a doctor wouldn't be able to prescribe it for pain relief easily. https://www.health.qld.gov.au/public-health/topics/medicinal-cannabis/...

Got no interest in riding the magic carpet in pizza wedges for half a day.


I did by lunch on my first day, on the back of only 20 mins or so with the instructor before I decided to bail.

Re: FCS Quads - What are you using ?

Dropped down to PC2s on my daily driver, with G-L trailers. Works nicely. They're too small for my fishy board though - it has a hip in the outline just in front of the side fins, making it plenty loose.
