Re: Where did you surf today ?

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.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I was OK, not concussed, just a bit out of it for about 15 minutes. I did get a serious concussion about 10 years ago. I was hit in the head by a guy on a board as I was duck diving. I had to be helped to shore and was incapable of doing anything. Luckily there was a nurse who organised everything. ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I thought it was really bad at first, like broken jaw, missing teeth, left eye badly damaged. Some friends who saw it happen came down and I was watching their expressions to try and gauge what it was like. The problem was I was moving fast on my board and when the fin hit the reef the board just st...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I caught a wave and saw the reef boiling a bit and thought there was just enough water over it, but my fin caught and I launched head first into the reef so quickly I had no chance to do anything... I saw a bit of jagged perfectly framed and thought this is not going to end well at all, I managed to...

Re: Midlengths

I'm fascinated by these people. I'm not very good at doing nothing. Well it's pretty busy really. Two surf's a day, chatting with the regulars, the local Balinese are always up to something, local warungs are full of gossip and good food. I'm quite happy hanging on the Bukit and watching the world ...
