Re: Cursed surfboards...do they exist?

...a cursed surfboard ...I am at the point where i am going to sell it soon If it is cursed and you sell it to someone else then that is bad karma for you (unless the new owner knows how to remove the curse) - I think you should be careful, probably better just to store it where you can keep an eye...

I love it a lot.

But I think you need to add a gratuitous sex scene (or just gratuitous but large breasts in slow motion, if for an american audience).

Do as the English Channel swimmers do...
Any type of protective grease is permitted, but that normally used is a mixture of LANOLIN and Petroleum Jelly

Go the Shuttle Bus. No problems with the boards (if they don't go with a trailer they'll slide 'em down the aisle inside), cheaper than a Maxi Taxi.

Anyway, I've never seen a SUP out in anything over half a foot. At least in Manly that is. I saw a SUP on roof racks at Manly yesterday; it had Future Fins Vectors fitted - (from the Futures website) Vector Tech Foils were developed for the specific purpose of creating maximum speed and kinetic dri...

I was thinking we should probably start with bodyboarders :lol:

Seriously, I was trying to illustrate the difference between a very token "awareness" event such as Earth Hour, and the potential future realities that Earth Hour enthusiasts seem themselves to be unaware of.

Perhaps a less drastic method than killing your children would be to outlaw the killing and husbandry of animals and make everyone vegetarian. It would actually save more water, carbon, methane etc than killing your children and seems much less drastic, don't you think. Drastic? If global warming r...

Apart form the fact that it probably is just a publicity stunt, what I can't work out is why we let every freaking building in town, and every shop with it's neon signs, keep there lights on forever long after everyone has gone home. The city burns up more energy every night just leaving lights on ...

I like frothing...it has a meaning. All these other words don't. If your gonna come up with a new word for it, it has to have the same meaning. Well then we need to learn how to make a cappuccino and learn all the Barista's jargon while we're at it, and then surfers can use their synonym for "froth...

Those unfamiliar with a subject can often be tagged by their incorrect use of jargon . So for surfing jargon p...
