Re: Where did you surf today ?

Pretty sure Mackies side cuts are based on an old school snowboard design. Not Rodney Balls but similar. I can't remember the guys name. MMs inspiration would be the winterstick by Milovich Winterstick These days they have morphed into the highly desirable genstick snowboard The sidecut shortens th...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Just watched a vid of Jaws during a big swell a couple of days ago. Totally out of control crowd-wise. Seems any bloke who can afford a gun and an inflation vest is out there. Three blokes on a wave, boards getting bailed, loose boards in the impact zone. Frightening at that size. Log on to the pas...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Echo Beach left? If so it was the same as the last time I surfed it a couple of years ago. Fairly easy take off if you get into them early followed by a bit of a barrel section and then it walls through towards the beach. You get a few nice double ups on the lower tide which are nice. I was astound...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Am I very wrong to suggest that pro surfing badly needs gambling I mean how many more years can the billionaire keep plowing it in. How many more British former Rugby Union executives can he employ before he wakes up to the fact that he's been taken to the fcuken cleaners by the world's laziest spo...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

When you consider the crowd factor, the heavy waves and number of waves ridden on the north shore

I usually take a shorty and a log, or a shorty and a step up. Leave one in the car.
