Re: Indonesia July school holidays?

Goofy, as are the two others I'll be travelling with. I don't have a problem going right though.

Re: Indonesia July school holidays?

G-Land is certainly an option but I'd hate it to be maxed out & me being an onlooker, or scalped like Beany's mate.

Re: Indonesia July school holidays?

I've got two weeks & want to maximise my surfing time. A day or two travel on either side is OK but I'd rather not be riding a donkey to get to wherever we're going. Basic accomodation is fine by me. I'm happy to get lesser quality waves if that means minimal hassling, and presuming those waves are ...

Re: Indonesia July school holidays?

Thank you Trev. I'm thinking that the reason for the quietness on this thread is that a number of RS contributors are currently putting together some lengthy well thought out responses to my post to ensure I make the right choices and have an immensely successful Indonesian surfing experience come J...

Indonesia July school holidays?

Been awhile RS folks but thought this'd be the place to get some info, and check in to see if the poo thread is still active. Got a leave pass for the July school holidays & want to hit Indonesia with a couple of mates. Never done it before and am wildly unknowledgeable. All the research I've been d...

Re: Chronic disc lower back issues

I've had on again / off again issues with my back since an injury I got in my teens. A few years back I also ruptured a disc in my neck which required an operation. I occasionally go to a brilliant Chiro in Hunters Hill (here we go...) who manages to sort me out when things get a little ordinary. I'...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Yep. I'm looking for something a little more narrower in the tail for peakier beach break stuff. But in saying that I have been enjoying the hell out of it in everything from slop to good conditions.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Yeah the outline looks very similar (too similar for someone not have copied the other), but the tomo's got more herbs and spice re: bottom contours and funky channels etc it seems ? Of all boards I'd be prepared to slap a grand down on, the 6'2 v4 is looking pretty tempting. I might start turning ...

Re: WTF! Shark attack insurance (no, really)

Apparently the policy will provide surfers with "peace of mind" and that "makes a big difference".

To what I really have no idea.

Re: Jeffreys Bay Pro 2015

Not that simple. Little fcuker would see right through it. Soccer fanatic and that was after three years of me coaching his rugby team. And because I hate the showboating side of the round ball game he goes out of his way to do ridiculous celebrations after scoring goals. Spends as much time on his ...

Re: Jeffreys Bay Pro 2015

My son couldn't give a fcuk about surfing and it has got nothing to do with sharks. Basically anything I steer him towards he pushes back in the opposite direction & so I figured a long time ago that it was never going to be a father/son activity in my house.

Re: Sponsor cynicism in wake of J-Bay

There was a whole article in the SMH penned by some marketing parasite about how Fanning & Wilson's 'brand values' have exploded. Still doesn't beat the same newspaper mentioning during a report on the Lindt Cafe siege how the building where it was all happening had sold previously for a bunch of $.

Re: Ask Carroll

I watched the first episode on iview last night. Stevie Wright didn't get much of a look in & I'm guessing it's because of the state he's in these days. Looked very much the worse for wear & to be honest, I'm surprised the guy's still alive going by reports I've heard over the years. Were you there ...
