Re: Digital SLR recommendations

I was put on to a Pentax K20D by another user on this forum, and it's great. For the price i'm really happy with it. I also found youtube is a good resource for camera reviews, a lot of camera shops review cameras and compare them to similar cameras in that price range etc, generally un-biased opini...

Re: cool vids

A few of my mates had BSD boards, they all fell to pieces. Wonder what his new boards will be like? Rounded rails again?

Re: short arm short leg wesuit in Indo - too hot?

I wore a short john in indo, cause I too get a bit of rash in boardies, especially after hours and hours in the water. Short john was hot, but even boardies would be hot, you definately need a cold shower after a surf to cool you down and a few bottles of water before bintangs.

Re: Shark attack at Mona Vale 11/2/2010

Sure he didn't just have a close encounter with an oyster on said rocks? :lol:
If that was proven to be a great white, i'll gladly try and eat my own tongue. Get ready, next it will be a 'rogue' terrorizing sydney beaches. He's got a taste for human blood now but didn't get his stomach full!

Re: Shark Island Challenge 2009 Webcast

Itll probably be better. Much more emphasis on better waves etc. First places takes all, prizes for best wipeout, best barrel etc. Yeah I agree the format is the way it should be, but without the best riders i think something will be missing, i may be proved wrong! nevertheless, surf is gonna be sm...

Re: Shark Island Challenge 2009 Webcast

Gussy you ranga! :lol: They're all excluded this year because its not a comp on the world tour, so the IBA won't let them go in it, or something like that...pretty gay if you ask me. It won't be the same.

I dont have shares so i'm not really affected that way. I'm only 24 so my super has plenty of time to grow.
