Nice story about the New York Times’ Australian bureau chief and the life changes he observed from taking his kids to nippers.

Re: Nth NSW sharks. Can they p!ss off already?

What do you reckon Lege, did he rock up to find a crowd at his local, and then set the shark alarm off and go for a quiet surf?

Used them my entire surf lifetime,with a
Liddle.
Gotta be clean. Like a rubber band coming off the bottom.
Also not that hot if it's jacking.
In that case, stiffness "More betta"
No, but I've just put a Cheyne Horan Starfin in my 9' mal, should be interesting.

Forget those ex-pro sponsored motherfuckers like Asher Pacey. This guy works and has a family and surfs a keel better than anyone.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

don't be. try and find a mini-mal at the dump. they go just as good for 50 bucks. I’m a bit like that with my Carver. I keep thinking about getting a midlength but really nothing goes much better than this old minimal. Maybe I should spray over the big M. Got my fish for $80 off an Irish backpacker...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Looks good, I'd wear it. Main requirement is that it has to stay in place during duck dives. Nine out of ten fail that test.

Note that I said "stay in place"... I don't want it obscuring my vision during/after a duckdive. A small brim like that would help

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I had a Gath helmet in the 80s, but it was mainly for eye and ear protection.

Indo reefs are much safer than WA reefs as they're mainly dead coral reefs that have smooth contours.
