Re: Just general surfing stuff

I can only imagine the thrilling repartee. Pretty remarkable comment. I've hung out with both, I have not noticed any great differences. People are pretty much people. Mountain bikers are a bit more friendly though, as there's no competition for tracks and there's a lot of group effort in building ...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I hear your pain. that's just it man ... there is no pain. not a single ounce. maybe i'm just an adrenaline junkie and i get more from skating. maybe it's just a phase that'll pass. i really don't know. i've never been here before. i'm not thinking too much about it ... just doing it. I'm with you ...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I don’t understand. Don’t you surf for how it makes you feel? How can your ‘stoke’ levels be affected by whether surfing is cool or not? yeah, surfing just doesn't feel the same it used to. i use the whole 'cool' thing as a bit of a simplistic troll. sure, it's crowded like never before. that, i th...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Don't know buddy. That was Sunday, I did surf there that day, it was between swells and a smallish day IIRC; so relatively crowded and not working that well, the new swell hit Monday.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Perfect glass-off this morning.

A desultory chest high swell, rain clouds over East Java, a pod of porpoises cavorting just outside the peak, and sunlight shining through a gap in the cloud highlighting a jakung with a stream of prayer flags taut between its high curved pirate prows.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I don't think so, entirely, I agree you have an arguable point but, my point is Cranked isn't doing anywhere near the carbon blotch a private jet would . So he needn't feel too guilty. Exactly, I've given up my private jet, surely that's enough? What I'm thinking though, is that we should have indi...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Hmmmm. I could sort of sidestep the issue by moving to the Bukit, but the real issue is not a moral one rather that travel by plane has a significant carbon footprint so what can be done to reduce that carbon footprint? Fuel is already a huge cost so we can be pretty sure that the recent air fleet i...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Yesterday was still pumping, perfect conditions, occasional near double overhead, got two of them. Late afternoons are magic.

This is nearly 3 weeks of great surf now.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Yeah. And bundeena, and Illawarra. But I suspect many are from heathcote, engadine, Menai, etc. no cûnt actually lives there, however many seem to carry a sense of entitlement about them. Having grown up in Cronulla I reckon I’m qualified to comment. Most of the guys who surfed Garie were from Enga...

I really don't think so, at least none of the Balinese family members, they too are puzzled about who and how though.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Checked the surf today at dawn and later at about 11am. Bunch of guys were sitting well out to sea, nothing much happening. Kept watching. Then I saw a magnificent set marching in well out to sea. The first wave broke about 300m further out and 10' of whitewater rolled in over everyone. Went further...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

The run of good surf continues, sets head and half to double, light offshores, not too crowded.

Got half a dozen good set waves yesterday morning, only short rides though. Too tired for an afternoon session.

Offy, you can be Dirk Ziffs minder. Remember, simple instructions and make sure he keeps his mind on the task at hand.
