Re: Just general surfing stuff

Check out 'biorock' - would make a great reef. Not sure how expensive it is or where it can be used (water temps etc) but it effectively creates a natural reef, so should be pretty stable. there have been some artificial reefs for surfing, but all have failed. Might be the design or the quality etc ...

30 too tight, 32 too loose.


I'm a 31 as well. Buy 32s that have the string that goes all the way around, not just the 2 inches at the front

Quicksilver the company has changed its name. Now 'Boardriders Inc' (but will still use the QS brand)

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Obviously bailed out as Premier to get some wave time. He was trying hard to be pretty conspicuous. Shouting loudly to his mates and hooting etc. Guess he's feeling pretty happy with his lot. $2m pay packet, rumoured. Less stress. Less press. Less dealing with A**holes (I know they are bankers, but...

Re: Bucket List

If I was beyond wealthy I would lure Martin Daly out of retirement, have an Indies Trader replica constructed, make an offer to Shearer and Carroll to accompany me as surf guides, perhaps also to Marauding and Beany to provide comic relief, and we would tour the oceans of the world, stopping at our...

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'. Its a pun. Let go of how things used to be in the good old days when your group had control and pre...

Re: Summer.

that sounds like a great outcome - obviously the temples are crowded but the town itself has done very well out of it. It was mostly potholes and just dirt tracks back then and I was worried it had turned into Kuta or perhaps a Nusa Dua style enclave of 5 stars. I went there one Easter (I was living...

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...

I was going to use chains and perches, but one sank and the other swam away, so no accurate measurement was possible.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Talk metric or go back to Trumpland. Its not '4ft' its 1.3m (or 2.6m if using other scale). I surf it on my 2.1m board so I am pretty good at judging how high it is.
