Re: Just general surfing stuff

Go to the surfblanks website and have a read of midgets thoughts on Bob and his board making Yeah....I've read that. It's a bit like the Geoff McCoy version of surfboard design....The Dick Brewer Version, The George Greenough Version. Basically all those guys reckoned they invented everything....to...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

So the rebadged Peter Drouyn is claiming KS stole his patent for the wave pool. Brilliant stuff. Drouyn must take the cake for being the most extreme individual to ever be a great surfer. Others have achieved controversy at particular times but Drouyn has managed to keep it up for forty years. Reck...

Re: Injuries Blog

A bit confused re: photos. The first ones were Oneil? Are the second ones a different make? One time went surfing over at South Kingy after school with one of the other grommets. I had my mums car. Other guy got whacked by his boatd in the head. There was a bit of blood. I drove him over to the Ambo...

Re: Injuries Blog

My pair of booties look identical to those....but they are oneil. They are really comfy....but I really can't surf in boots. Tried when I was at Balangan but gave it away after the first surf. Particularly since my board tends to hover in the lip a bit more than my other boards. Reef isn't very shar...

Re: Injuries Blog

Does getting your earhole rebored from surfers ear count?

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Agreed....plus they are endemic to most of SE Asia so you never know where half the bought stuff comes from.
I've eaten a lot of ordinary reef fish over the years too.

Went for another paddle at Bronte......Beach was packed...surf very lacklustre. Even surfed the reef which I never do.

The Bondi Air Comp set a new standard. It actually looked better on tv than in real life.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Paddled out at Bronte yesterday arvo....sat out the back for ages then got a good one right across. Thought I would paddle along to the south in the rip that runs along the inside. Ended up back out and had to paddle in against the rip to get in as the tide had come in so hardly any waves were break...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Decided to drive down. Thought about going out at Bronte. Thought it would be leisurely. Went out at Bondi. You know when you look at the surf and there's still a few coming through but you can see the tides going to drop and screw it up. Thought it would and it did.

Re: princess margaret river pro

Surely that negates the need to have the comp at that location then?
Also it gives a great wave a literal slap in the face.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Last year I was paddling through a set wave at a mid well known mid north coast point on a biggish day and a school of mullet came screaming straight at me. I was the only one out as the other crew were spread out and the only person near me had just caught a wave. Yikes.

Big call for the kids. I'm loath to make judgements on anyone trying to keep their family together though.
