Re: Bells Beach

True, although the commentary team's hesitancy to say shark is perhaps best judged when there’s a shark.

It was a shark-shaped clump of seaweed. It was reasonable to pause and check, of course.

Re: The Coolangatta Gold 2019

My daughter went to D-bah to observe a bit of the action. She 'watched' the last women's heat. You couldn't see them. They were almost around at Froggys. Invisible. There were a couple of jetskis that indicated their location. There was no big screen showing the action. The air heat started. She mov...

I hadn't seen this clip of Steph Gilmore surfing Malibu. Very good.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Apparently, pre-1971, there was a popular left-hander at Kirra. Stu Nettle said just about all of the old Kirra surfing photos he's found are of the left. Bob McTavish said in one of his books that he somewhat missed that left. It was round about where Coolangatta Creek comes out. https://i.imgur.co...

Fanno and Parko together at Kirra, perhaps today. How did Fanno make it out of that modest-sized tube? Not as easy as he makes it look.

Fcuk! I just got a crazy board shaped 9'8" x 20.5" x 3.5" Christenson off a Twig file, low entry to foiled vee bottom pintail quad. Chris lives the classic gypsy shaper's life, orders collect at various points on the globe, he comes into town and tunes in with the machine etc, finish shapes a pile ...
