Re: Just general surfing stuff

Italo’s performance against Jack Freestone is the classic modern example of why you shouldn’t compete while injured.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Swell kind of pushed late this arvo. I can't help but think that Fiji must be in the midst of a fabulous run of surf.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

cool lil snively south bump today, clean. Sand is absolutely piled on the beaches. I don't know if the weather will ever break this coming winter. It might just stay warm, smooth, clear, and fcuking three foot forever.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Soooo many kooks. Crowds are driving me nuts. I’m having a real love/hate relationship with surfing at the moment. Struggling with motivation. My area has exploded with people. At dawn, the waters packed like it’s 10am. I just look at it and go uurrgghh. Well normally I am v much live and let live,...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Pretty fun here today, clean, swell fizzled a bit but still pulses of good 4-5’ energy with slow periods in between. Soooo many kooks. Rode a 5’91/2” Webber, a tuned in version of that Creature double concave bottom and deck board, really interesting, a heap of bite and surfs vertical curves so well...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I guess Larissa read the book I wrote about MC and Curren and the reverse vee, she pretty much quotes it throughout The book was written to accompany MC's and TC's Reverse Vee Project board series, only 300 were ever printed and you only got one if you bought a board, I think there's like 30 left. I...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Lowers again this morning, solid 4'6', a little bit wind hacked, about 20 people out, all scattered around the lineup a bit bewildered by the swell energy I think. Wind went offshore five minutes into the surf and half the crew went in. ha ha

Beautiful morning at Lowers today, really pretty 4' new SW swell, it'd be so fun if it barrelled.

Re: Momentum Generation

Yeah I didn't think that much of it, felt like they were fitting a much more interesting story into a screen play cliche sized box, that kind of switched me off from the outset. Benji struck me as the most interesting boy, and his response to Jeannie's loss and their trip to Tavarua, and the afterma...

Re: Sunny Garcia

Sunny tried to kill himself. He may still have succeeded. He’s been battling depression for a long time. It’s a real bastard, he had plenty to live for but you just can’t see that at the time.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Bitchen little surf at home. New MC 6'0" revee round pin, I turned it once and knew this was a fantastic board. Reverse vee is so strange, it's so soft underfoot but there's so much power and punch in turns. After the big 10 channel singly at Winkipop it felt like the easiest board I've ever ridden.
