Re: Just general surfing stuff

Yeah, I want my own. Really nice board. Trust me, I tried to lose Carroll's address. I went to a hypnotherapist but that didn't work. I went out looking for a one-punch kinda thing, but Marrickville's more into pho and ukuleles than punching, so that didn't pan out. Finally, Nick threatened my famil...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I get so petulant when I'm at home on the school holidays and my wife is trying to organise stuff to do with the kids and I can't just say, Nup, I'm going surfing during these hours, on these days, you'll have to work around that. Instead, I get a bit pouty. Even worse when I ask her what she wants ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

When I was a teen, I had a mate who was a really good surfer and totally (stupidly) fearless. He had a two-stage pop up which was quite slow. He was a goofy and loved big South Narrabeen lock-ins. I have no idea how he made the drop on those things. He also loved that left next to pipe in front of C...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Atan Madisson, aj. I felt like petubot must when buying jeans, except these aren't actually a womens model. I went for the Xcel Drylocks. I'll report back. Every time I've tried booties, I've given up after a couple of waves, but I reckon my circulation is getting worse because I'm only getting abo...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Thank you, Nick. And now, back to the studio... post up a report after your first surf aj, go hard on the detail. Do you mean like… The board lay in the back of my beat up maroon ‘96 Volvo wagon. A cool sou’ wester blew and my taupe angora jumper was barely adequate. I eased the key out of the slig...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Ah well, Trev, you see I also have a neck issue. Lucky, aren't I? That's to do with osteophytes on a couple of vertebrae. Ageing sucks balls.

Short surfs, Steve. Still nursing my shoulder.

thats good.

tell us about the board you got off Nick.
I’ll let Nick speak to that as he’s all over the technical stuff. It’s lovely, though.
