I was going to say. Like how do any of you manage to get out of bed in the mornings. "Oh God what are these shoe things with their unbearably complex 'laces'!" "Oh dear! I am likely to fall down the 'stairs'!"
Laces! Don't get me started.

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

I only surf a couple of times a year in full rubber now and I haven't had a steamer for 2 years. I've never used a front zip steamer. Yep Trev, just taking the piss, but the long john is ridiculously easy to get into and out of, and so is a front zip top. I have two of each: 2 and 3mm longjohns, 1.5...

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

Back zips are just way too hard to get into and out of, you need the simplicity and the joy of the longjohn and front zip long sleeve top combination for real ease of access.

Re: Good month for Baja Sur - Pacific West Coast

I thought kulharin was in Canada. 6½ hours if so. But I agree, I'd rather go to Hawaii. If we could only get definitive proof that the earth is indeed flat, then wouldn't that cut down on the flying time ? Maybe, but this is definitive proof that Realsurf is the premier website when it comes to val...

This is a matter of solemn honour between gentlemen.
Exactly. The pie must be worthy of this solemn honour.

I just finished the last white chocolate creme brulee leftover from christmas, so I'm out of ammunition for the present.

Re: Good month for Baja Sur - Pacific West Coast

Offy, he's in a plane FFS, why stop at Baja, just keep flyin'.

If my mate prefers it to the bukit it must be fcukin' good - he's a good enough surfer to get any waves he takes a liking to on the bukit, and he raves about it. Mainly rights though, that's a big drawback.

Re: Good month for Baja Sur - Pacific West Coast

A guy I surf with in Bali has been spending 9 months a year a bit north of Porto Escondido for the last 6 years. I see him for around 3 months each year, just after the bali wet season. He is stoked with everthing about the place - surf, food, people cost of living - he highly recommends it.

Re: Strahan tassie

A couple of surfers I know here, started doing regular trips to Marrawah and raved about it. They liked it so much that after a couple of years they upped sticks and moved there. That was about 6 years ago and I haven't seen them since. They were originally from Capetown, probably missed the cold wa...

Re: Strahan tassie

Thats nice, without being a pedant, you know Grajagan is not on Bali? Neither is Lombongan, but both are a common part of the Bali experience (2 hours by fast boat to Bobbies camp) But yes, definitely pedantic though and a wanker to boot, I don't think any reader (other than you) would infer I thou...

Re: Strahan tassie

I will be Marlow to Bank's Kurtz Chortle. Cranked, correct if wrong, but you spend almost the entirety of your Bukit surfing experience at Impossibles, a sectiony, closed out half wave that looks pretty in a photo. No? From 1982 (when I spent a year there) until about 1992 I surfed everywhere in Ba...

Re: Strahan tassie

I've been surfing indo for 35 years. For a 15 year period I just transited through Bali and surfed lots of other places in Indonesia. This Bali thing is just the last 5 years.

If Cranked is Godspeed's second, you know what he'll do, he'll pull out at the last minute some weird ass experimental bullshit lazer zap stun gun apparatus. One of twelve he's collected. You'd be better off with a Nerf Gun than with crackpot cranky in your corner Godsave. I was going to say that I...

You’re already retired Cranked, you can’t get any more retired than that.
Retiring from the dog eat dog, cut and thrust of surfing on the bukit to the quiet solitude of lonely barrels in the boondocks of indo. I will be Marlow to Bank's Kurtz

Should we all move to Indonesia? Then you can change your name to Cranky :-)
Everyone already has.

Banksie has one last world class secret spot though: we will both be retiring there in our dotage
