Re: wetsuit

My kids all have them as well. Not as stretchy as the higher cost suits but they only fit them for a few days before they grow. And they are kids so they can suck it up, I never had a wetsuit as a kid, I just turned blue I have a short arm/sleeve one but its a bit big round the waist for my height. ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

The hypocrisy of people who use surfing for commercial gain sickens me to my core. Drailed the misunderstood soul surfer. With ya brother. Write about now, funk soul brother (yes, I know its 'right'.

Re: Summer.

that sounds like a great outcome - obviously the temples are crowded but the town itself has done very well out of it.

Re: Summer.

Is Siem Reap crowded? I went in 2001 or thereabouts and it was sort of crowded but ok - particularly as the tour buses only turned up at 1030. There was only one 5 star hotel (the Raffles) but about 5 big new places being built and I gather a heap more since then. Back then you either had a 2 star v...

Re: Where did you surf today ?
