yes the terrifying impact of a Wobbegong
I suspected as much. Foot injury 20 metres from shore.
But the report led into a great speil about how Australia Ianthe worst in the world for shark deaths.

Board looks good but that leg rope loop needs a zip tie backup. 😀

Stumbled across myself on Instagram.
From this morning on an old Tony Dempsey single fin borrowed off a mate.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

When I tore the tendon off my left arm a year or so ago, the radiographer who did the ultrasound told me he was one of the guys who go out in kayaks to fish on the reefsmoff Moffs. I reckon we they were mad trailing fish blood and guts all the way out there. No worries, he said. We've been doing it ...

BTW. I saw a guy out on a SUP a while ago using two legropes.
Can we get a bit more detail on this?
What sort of detail would you like to know?

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Yeah they pull around 250-300 tiger sharks off buoys and nets each year in Qld, it's not like there is a lack of 'em I wasn't really worried. Ironically the other day when swimming in after my board, not once did shark cross my mind. There's a bunch of kayakers go out at Moffs every morning, to fis...

Ability to carry weight and the ability to withstand shearing force are two different things.
No shit Sherlock. :B
But UV damage was mentioned.
Plastic rope used in the same situation, deteriorates in a year or so. And breaks. The zip ties don't.

And then there's the UV factor causing plastics to go brittle

I've been using zip ties in the garden for years, carrying decent weight. Sunshine, rain, UV. Never had a failure.
You know they come in different sizes don't you?

Re: Where did you surf today ?

btw Trev, you're gonna get a few days of surf soon from a long easterly fetch that started out past the Cook Islands and has been helped along by some 25-knot winds between Tonga and NZ. Then more behind that via a repeat pattern. Points might wake up under that second lot. Two happy weeks ahead! A...
