Re: Shark attack at North Bombo

"was surfing about 100m out to sea on the northern end of the beach — not far from recent sightings of large white pointers — when he was attacked about 7pm."

Re: Advice for a 3rd board

Just to clarify things a little, I wouldn't consider Gumby an Intermediate surfer.

Gumby your better than that, your just being modest.

Should catchup again soon.

How recent is that shot Butts? Steve, its the same shot I sent through to you about 18 months ago or so. I have some from August/September last year. Shane entered the water, proceeded to catch ONE wave. Then promptly exited and left. :-( I've only seen him once since then, but I know he is still a...

Best of luck, hope you locate it soon. As an aside, bohdidontsurf that is the WORST case scenario. I know exactly what y...

Sports/Surfing: Second hand 50D. 100-400 f4-5.6 or 400 f5.6 or 200 f4 or 200 f2.8. Sorry the 200 f4 & 200 f2.8 should actually be the 70-200 f4 and 70-200 f2.8. Womble, the 400 f5.6 is better again, purely because its a prime. You are correct about not fully extending the 100-400, from what I h...
