Re: Quiver thread

Yeah, I wasted another good surf trying the gulwing again this morning. It's actually worse than trying to fight with one hand tied behind your back, there's just so many things that you can, and need to do that the gulwing can't do.

Re: Quiver thread

Surfy, how much effort did you put into trying to get the zots to work as singles?

There's that vid of Alistair and Geoff discussing boards and mega claims for small singles (sub 6') in 15-25' faces in Hawaii and the ments

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Jesus Steve, come and live in Bali, it's way safer.

I did an order of magnitude calculation for the chance of death by shark in WA for a keen surfer over a 10 year period and it was 1 in 10,000

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Consistent double overhead sets on the bukit today, perfect conditions after 12pm, very few out at various times.

I surfed in the morning and got a few.

Re: Flexibility

Why not do actual popups, surely that would be best for doing them?

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Caught one of the few double overhead waves today, my board seemed to have things sorted and didn't need any input from me for a while, so I stood tall, put my hands behind my back and tried to look cool and casual :-D-:

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I could live here on the bukit easily. Where I am is quiet, country, I know 9 out of 10 people here and they know me. I've been staying with the same clan for 30 years. They own most of the cliff side land between ulus and the temple. Around here has maybe 10 years before it's all over, just another...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Well that's just the problem, it's nearly noon and I haven't surfed today. Waiting for the new swell, it's already half an hour late, I should be out in head to head and a half perfection.

If it's not here by 12pm heads are gonna fcukin' roll I can tell ya'

Re: Quiver thread

The two McCoy Zots have been working out really well for me since I had them converted to quads. My wave count has gone up significantly. The 6'8 works really well in head and a half and I see no reason it won't handle double. The 6'1 is easily duck divable and will probably work in the same wave ra...

I like the spiritual path that more and more realsurfers are taking. I'm reading Thomas Merton "The Seven Story Mountain" atm so it's very fitting

Re: Rio Pro 2017 - Saquarema

Luckily it's a world wide sport so we can also encourage racial and religious stereotyping.

That'll bring the fans in.

And violence, we need that too.

Re: Rio Pro 2017 - Saquarema

See, it's this alternate reality they create and try and jam down our throats which is galling. And why, for what>? To appeal to Middle America? They really think Mom and Dad in Ohio are going to spend hours watching lumpy backwash being ridden pretty well in Brazil if they keep hyping the shite ou...

Re: Rio Pro 2017 - Saquarema

it's easy to get accreditation Cranked. You go up to the press counter there'll be some intern there about 18 years old. As NIck said, him and SEan Doherty between them have hoovered up all the paying gigs. There's no dough left for anyone else. Does that accreditation allow you to interview compet...
