Re: Where did you surf today ?

swell booted v strongly this arvo on the northern beaches, solid deep southerly groundswell, occasional six foot sets, slamming! Lulls and sets every 5-8 mins.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Oh dear. anyway, surfed in the supersuit today, little rip bowl right, I kinda felt like I was on the wrong board, just not thinking it through!! but man it was so free feeling. I still can't get my head around the price tag but it feels like the future of wetsuits, or what they should be like - thi...

Are those shoulders the real attraction Nick?
Nah mate, I just grabbed her name out of the air while I was writing.

Hopefully everybody understands I was kind of taking the piss.

Not A piss of course! I would never piss in that wetsuit. It's more expensive than my toilet.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

And I can tell ya, Ursula might look ethereal in that special studio pic, but she'd have been a different thing altogether after a good pounding in the Newport shore break.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Back then I'd have swum swiftly yet langourously to Ursula and whispered softly to her as she clung to me, "It's OK baby, nothing bad's gonna happen to you when I've got ya." Of course omitting to mention the drugs and the anal sex, and the other assorted humiliations that lay in her near future etc...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

So I used the million dollar wetsuit! I went down to do an iron session with the hot shot squad and there were some big bluebottles lurking. It just seemed as if the fates were instructing me to try out this super suit. So out it came and got a caning through two M-shape irons, board-ski-swim and sw...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Umm fcuk dozens of them. By and large they were fine, some with various degrees of impingement depending on the level of surgery and their attention to rehab etc. The main thing for quite a few seemed more psychological than physical, like they had never had a real injury before and weren't quite re...

What size wetsuit are you Nick?
Fcuken huge mate.

channels -- who knows? That's what we're here to find out. 1mm is thicker than a rash vest. you can find 1.5mm rubber in many l/s wettie vests, that's kinda what it feels like but a bit lighter.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Oh yes I get to keep it. like: a) that's what you do with wetsuit tests - staged reviews. Intro-first wearings, then in six months a wear and tear review, then a second wear and tear review a year after that b) I'm pretty sure nobody wants any wetsuit I've worn. You know I'm gonna piss in this thing...
