Re: American mid-west.

Met a nice lady from Utah when I was in Cambodia....not quite mid west though I guess. I'm thinking of hitting the US in the next year. California, Oregon...might go to Utah.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Oh I don't know, Steve......Nicks got a valid point to make here I think.
William Finegan had a few good things about various styles of claiming in his book.
Nicks take is more subliminal though.

If anyone's got a GoPro on their board I try to get in the picture.

Went for an afternoon paddle. Big claim for the second collision with a softie in the last few days.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I'm confused, I thought Carroll was positing claiming as a virtue to score points, are you seeing it as a vice Cranked? I was seeing it as very much a plus. But the big points come from the disguised claim - the verbal version of Lopez's nose-wipe tube exit claim. Like when people claim a session, ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Went for a swim this arvo.....everywhere looked better than Manly earlier.....still crap but better. You always have to allow for the overview when looking at Tama. Waves always look better from a height.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

What criteria are we using? Well if you don't mind me suggesting, I think it is really more about how hard core we come across here on RS. It can have fcuk all to do with how good you are. Like who knows what really goes on? All we have to go on is the claiming, the surf checks, the stance one take...

Re: Indonesia July school holidays?

Never had much desire to hit GLand.....and that has only diminished as I get older. Probably a bit different if you're a goofy foot. I know one fairly basic ability surfer who went there and got half scalped.

Re: Indonesia July school holidays?

I will never forget the first time I lobbed in Bali in 1982. It was the last place I went to in Asia and it was a welcome relief from some of the travelling I'd been doing. Anyway the point of this is I ran into this party of Aussies....a couple on their honeymoon with a couple of friends. They were...

Wait.....it's a southerly....Easterly Swell. Often duck over in those conditions. Can do it in half an hour on a good run.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I'm presuming most or at least some of the regular Gold Coast surfers would be better given the fact that they are considerably younger as well. Cranky definitely gets most points for commitment. Hatchie has to get points for commitment also for driving relentlessly in his bid to escape Maroubra eac...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Well I've just had the worst surf I've ever had at Manly. Thought I'd drive over for something to do. Didn't bother looking. Just went out. Totes crappy.....also putrid water and a bit cool. DeeWhy and Curly looked similar. Closing out and sucking on the shallow banks.

That sucks. Pity a boycott by Realsurfers wouldn't put him out of business.

Re: Indonesia July school holidays?

Okay....still heaps of waves in Bali. I've been going there since 1982 and I still seem to end up surfing somewhere new each time. Not much money in promoting it though. July is prime surf time so anywhere on the Bukit will be crowded. Lots of waves everywhere as well though. Easy to go to Lombok fr...
