Mate of mine who is a prosthetist, broke his neck diving into shallow water .....very lucky to make a full recovery. He made himself a custom lightweight helmet from carbon fibre.And paddi...

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...

But then there's almost never women in the water at the breaks I surf.

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.
