Re: Ask Carroll

Several times in these, how shall we say it, Last Days of Chez Carroll, you've alluded to thorny or controversial topics, but steered away from committing to a firm opinion on them. Examples: Sexism in surfing. Power Balance bracelets. A fully Candid memoir . If you do feel like ending on a controv...

Re: Trestles ryhmes with Nestles.

I don;t know if it's just me, but does anyone else find Owen Wrights waves in this Video amazing? I will grant you the cutty was very limp wristed, but the fact he is trying those sorts of airs in quarters seems pretty ridiculous, and the last turn wasn't too soft either... Its not just you. Owen W...

Re: Trestles ryhmes with Nestles.

Can anyone explain what went down between Fanning and Slater? Fanning seemed pretty bummed by it, but trying to work it out from Sunday night news coverage was a waste of time. Good explanation in the 'full story' featured on Surfline: http://www.surfline.com/surf-news/kelly-slater-wins-hurley-pro-...

Re: Trestles ryhmes with Nestles.

bugger, didnt see it live but got the highlights replay, never quite the same...what was KS talking about when he thanked Davo 4 something ? Davo didn't turn up for a heat against Kelly in the quarters. Real shame he went walkabout because he was killing it in previous heats. I think Kelly is going...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Anyway, Dave at Jackson is a ding magician... it'll probably look brand new again by the end of the week. Hey Jet, When i was living in the shire I'd get my boards fixed by a guy called Grant.

Re: Quadfather Project Board....

All this talk of Mark's boards doing the rounds on the Sunny coast while I'm not there is killing me Fwiw Mark, the Quadfather looks sweet and the feedback is backing it up...

Currently in Jakarta but have just spent the last 3 weeks surfing around Bali and Lombok Bit of a wake-up call after being out of the water for 8 months but it only takes a few surfs to get it back again (well kind-of... without the paddling fitness as well lol).
