Re: Just general surfing stuff

i thought aj made some salient, albeit generalised - in the case of this thread's current issue re women in the lineup - but nonetheless broadly encompassed points. The generalised approach was deliberate, skip, because I don't think you can talk about women in the water, in the context of Nick's a...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I very much doubt the women surfers in this area would be comfortable with a man telling them their experience of being female in the surf has a "sinister background". with respect AJ, thats a nonsense attitude that belongs in the 60's. Beginning a sentence 'with respect' always implies the exact o...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

There's no doubt that there's a certain type of surfer who will exploit what they perceive to be weakness. That notion of weakness takes different forms - kids, kooks, race, age and gender - (as well as a combination) - and different surfers will exploit them in different ways, often informed by the...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Wait til it's onshore and no swell for a week. Go out your mind with boredom. How is that different to Sydney? Because you are surrounded by regional dead shits and fccck all else to do. Just dumb fccckn surfies and the local bowlo club for fun. Hey, some of my best friends are regional deadshits.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Whether or not it's endemic or isolated is, to some degree, irrelevant, the point of difference between men's and women's experience is, as Nick replied to one commentator, "because of the wider background of domestic violence in the culture, and partly because women are often at a physical disadvan...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

South east facing beach south of the gong. Head to head and half high. Clean cross/offshore. The rights were short and sharp. Managed to get a nice little arm-drag to cover up on one. The lefts were walled up, tapering and reeling down the bank with a nice inside bowl for wrapping some turns. Maybe...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Anyone ridden an MC Red Dingo? AJ you've been lusting over that board since April, just get it. Lust is not love, boo, but a thousand bucks is a thousand bucks. Plus, I'm not convinced I 'need' it. I'm surfing fine on my 5'9" Revolution. Although, I did just buy a 9'4" Takamaya for $400 from a mate...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

This stoush is going to see some serious TotY noms. Not from the major players - although it could be argued that the very public airing of dirty laundry is worthy - but from the retards on the sideline. Drailed, attached to Steve's anus like a suckermouth catfish, would have to be a favourite. Sti...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

The wave pool is just a natural evolutionary step in surfing, if you accept that we are simply monkeys using a stick to get ants out of their nests. It's kinda like 3D movies. There have been three or four iterations of it. Each time it fades away and, in doing so, proves its novelty. The last time...
