Re: Sea Urchin Spines

It has to be every last bit,otherwise an abscess will form. But you'll know, as it will continue to ache and hurt with pressure, even if the skin heals over. I've had about 40-50 over the last few years.

Re: Sea Urchin Spines

It will start to fester after a day or so, they are easier to dig out then. Often the particle will be minute and barely visible.

Re: Pyzel Radius

Thud, Its more about hazing any newcomers: it wouldn't really matter if it was a balsa quiver of Brewers, Rawsons and Barnfields, it would be subject to merciless ridicule. This forum is not about facts, its more about but how you present them. I personally know that godsave owns a Pyzel Radius, but...

Cranked's not even in Indo, he's in an assisted living facility in Port Macquarie.
I thought you agreed to keep that quiet offy?

Luckily I've already had my heat, that would have been sufficient for a clear and easy win I reckon.

Re: Kelly's wave.

OK. I take your point, intriguing as it is. I've really been enjoying the fast, ever-changing, twisting, writhing walls of the bukit reef breaks lately. They set problem after problem and if you solve them all you are rewarded with a 300m+ exhilarating wave. This constantly having to think and/or in...

Re: Kelly's wave.

They will curate CTs and other events to which they'll be able to charge viewing entry - people will come to see the pros' practice sessions as well as competition, just like they come to see F1 practice etc. They'll probably sell some sort of high end memberships -- this pool can't really sustain ...

Re: Kelly's wave.

Why don't the Ziffs just go out and buy surf breaks and do the same as the above with them. For instance I'm sure they could buy the whole of Uluwatu for less than a hundred million (50 million in payoffs, the rest to the current owners). Gragagan for half that. Desert point a quarter. Small change ...

Just an exploratory nip.

Reputedly, juvenile GWs are at their most dangerous when they're trying to figure out what their food sources actually are.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Yesterday had weather, lots of it. It rained heavily during the night. Going down the gangs and back roads everything was wet and dripping, fecund with life. The heavy rain had strewn colourful patches of flowers over the roads and it was a dank foetid morning of the earth From the cliffs the ocean ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Haha. I've been reminiscing about yesterday. The first one I pulled back on, just fcuking go I yelled at myself, so next one I did. Awesome long drop, a guy further down was screaming something, I turned mid face and had a huge wall for 50m. Rode it for 150m, the face continually warping and twistin...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Glorious day. Offshores, brilliant sunshine, nice overhead swell, no crowds. Some push from the incoming tide put it well up for an hour. I picked off half a dozen solid waves, 200m, dropping in was exhilarating, easy 12' of face, stayed high mostly looking for the fastest line. 10 of us spread over...

Glassy conditions nearly all the time now. Hottest time of year. Swell is small, but still overhead on the exposed breaks

Hey, we're in full flight now Nick, nothing can stop us. Fcuk those difficult to get on back zips. I've moved on from the comparatively difficult back zipper to the even easier long john and front zip jacket combination. Going for a surf has never been easier. Sometimes I'll put them on and take the...
