Re: Just general surfing stuff

I was mostly scared of mice for hantavirus and ticks for Lyme disease in North America. Risk of ticks felt very low in winter but risk of hanta seemed high. I did lots of cabin overnights and the warning signs and mouse scat were hard to ignore.

Re: Status of New Real Surf site?

I'm confused. What moderation occurs on here, from anyone? Back in the day it did, posts were deleted constantly, people were sin-binned and banned. But nowadays nothing happens

Re: Should Real Surf elect their moderators

Many years ago I was told off for saying c unt . It was a fair call. I was banned for a week for saying fuck. Thud you clearly weren't around in the days of harlequin babies and marcus and when Trev actually wielded his power. I was enlisted to help with some technical issues. I did that and I've a...

The secret is to tuck your chin right before submerging. 19/20 will be fine if you do that

A guy yesterday was wearing a rugby helmet, the ones similar to that. He was a bodyboarder

Re: Journalist seeking Sydney surfers 5km+ from beach

I approved him. Because unlike many applicants he was a real person and even if he has an agenda it's more surfing related than 99% of the posts on here. I also steered him here from another forum (not that this is the only appropriate fishing ground but there are several of you who might fit his cr...

Re: Arthritis in big toe joint

Mine is definitely turf toe-ish. I blogged about it on here years ago. Surfing is largely instinctive for me so I can't diagnose it interactively but I figure it's from something to do with how I stand up and load up that toe before my foot is planted. It's not a side thing. It's definitely inline w...

Re: Arthritis in big toe joint

I get turf toe almost exclusively in my back foot's big toe and only from surfing. Been living with it for years and have good years and bad years. I don't notice it while surfing but it can be very painful afterwards. I'm pretty sure turf toe was the KS' spurious excuse for skipping events for years.

Re: Front shoulder pain.

My shoulder rehab philosophy (and rehabs in general): dull pain fine, sharp pain bad. In fact I once had a good sports medicine doctor who advised I should encourage dull pain because the body responds by sending little rehabby soldiers to fix it. Simplifying, but basically for bone and tendon/ligam...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I don't surf with them often due to when/where I surf but they hold a similar advantage over shortboards.
