Re: General snow stuff

Yeah, I'll definitely check it out. Have a contact in Japan that might be able to help with the language barrier.

Re: Cocunut Spray; The Niugini Experience

The whole safety thing isn't so bad so long as you use your head and don't do anything stupid. You won't have any troubles staying at Nusa. All the surf camps know that their businesses depend on keeping guests safe.

Re: Cocunut Spray; The Niugini Experience

Been to PNG a few times. Just take a groveller/fish type board and a std shortboard. It's a no brainer, unless you ride a mal.

Re: Wave Garden Cove

Is it chlorinated? Surely that'd stuff your wetsuit.

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/...
