Re: Nth NSW sharks. Can they p!ss off already?

With eating dead whales, that shark timidity would seem to be mostly timidity towards other sharks. Sharks generally appear careful to defer to bigger sharks. Even relatively small differences in size seem to be acknowledged in setting up the pecking order.

Let’s not forget one thing in this apocalyptic crisis, a bushing is a type of bearing.

At 6am at the Sunshine Coast Airport this morning it was 6 degrees Celsius. You are allowed to wear a wetsuit.

Shame about the crappy colour scheme



mm, the colour can be easily fixed. Spray the red/orange bit to make it white and then whack on this sticker over the El Capitan. :idea:

Ok :lol:. I'd say that wave would have been nigh on impossible to make without holding the rail the whole time.
He may not have made the wave but he would have retained his dignity.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Absolutely. I saw Nathan Florence saying JJF told him, you’ve got to let go of the rail. Imagine how’d you go at the skate park if you were locked on to the rail. You’d be ridiculed.

I mean, fine, do it, but you might as well try kneeboarding.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

There should be a rule that chastens stand up surfers who hold the rail for extended periods of time on a wave. It’s semi body boarding. It’s cheating.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Who are all these people? I’m assuming there is not many from Qld. Do you reckon there’s just a lot of surfers on the north coast if everybody decides to pull out their surfboard.
