Re: Just general surfing stuff

I'm not hypothesising from my experience though .....I'm asking women, as well as other men here.
Abuse is not that hard to spot , its pretty obvious when you see it.

what do you think the experience is for welsh women Godsave?

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Beany sounds far more like urban ice addicts are more of a problem than the local yocal plumber......I've never seen a single one who didn't respond favourably to good manners and a respectful attitude. It does shock me every year when the cube monkeys invade en masse and bring their Sydney attitude...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I ain't suggesting for a second the stories aren't true, just trying to get a handle on whether this is something widespread and endemic or isolated and sporadic. My basic take is not that its a jungle out there but the complete opposite. Considering the big increases in crowds it's amazing everythi...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I guess that is what I am trying to tease out: now much of this is a gender issue and how much is general lineup behaviour as more people compete for a scarce resource and the usual rules of line up hierarchy fall apart.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I'm surrounded by women who surf. My daughter surfs, my wife surfs, her friends surf. I took their temp over any abuse and didn't get a single response: plenty of low level chauvinism and mansplaining, occasionally sleaziness/leering, but none of the vicious abuse outlined in Nicks story. I passed N...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

not sure "traditional attitudes" to women have been applicable in Australia, at least anywhere on the coast for the last 20 years at least.

But surfing has been a male dominated culture, although that is rapidly changing.

Wonder where the girls Nick spoke to are from, seems like a spread.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Wow, 40 years of surfing and I've never seen or witnessed anything like the incidents detailed above. Are they isolated incidents or is this evidence of something more widespread? The increase in women surfing has been one of the main features of the surf culture over the last decade. I see way less...

Re: Midlengths

No Iggs, but I know the shipped cost of one is $125 so they must be cutting corners somewhere.

They feel really plastic to me.

Probably surf fine though.
