Re: Just general surfing stuff

I surfed mine heaps in onshore conditions and they were great but at the time I was on a severe low volume trip. They felt like a Japanese filleting knife.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Yes he developed epoxy sensitivity. Bit hard given his epoxy construction techniques. He would cover himself head to toe in like a cleanroom suit and full head masks etc with taped joins everywhere and still break out in chronic rashes. And as a result gave it away, something he'd spent a couple of ...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Such a shame what happened to him plus the lack of recognition he got.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I couldn't sell mine for a quarter of what they cost new. And they're good shapes. And they're new condition. And they're nigh on indestructibile.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

@Wyre, probably.

He made fantastic stuff. And very strong compared to pupe. It's a shame he didn't earn ten times what he did. He was a very talented craftsman.

Re: Nth NSW sharks. Can they p!ss off already?

Probably best black 🦆 didn't get much surfing done. Funnily enough the day before he arrived two schools were thrashing around about 30m out past me. From the tails and fins I'd estimate 6-8'. Not much trouble but still made me a bit nervous.

I've seen about a 14' tiger before. I doubt it was a good thing. But I'd prefer a tiger to a white.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Bah. Italo gets an 8.17 yesterday for some of the most critical surfing we'll see all year. Lakey gets a 9.8 for two turns.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

My comment was responding to the bad board choice comment. The swell this week was much smaller than I thought. But your point is valid - I could rock up at one indicator spot and make an informed decision about the rest of the coastline in those particular conditions. You don't have that luxury. I ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Next trip head to the desert. You'll see guys getting waves. You've gotta remember, it's kinda isolated over here so whatever the rest of the world is doing can take a while to percolate over. Sometimes you'll stumble across jaw-dropping sessions though.

Barton frothing in the booth is what the commentary needs. Not Joe's banal monotone drone, Barton giggling and bouncing around on the couch.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Today I caught a wave with new fins and a new board and I experienced something I'd heard of but never experienced. The wave was fast and powerful and I took a high line on a section and the fins started to hum really loudly. It made me fall off as I wondered wtf happened. Then I remembered reading ...
