Re: Inguinal hernia, anyone had surgery?

Ok cool mate cheers. Might try to get wet a few times before the op. Should only be 6 weeks out after the op I had both mine for years before surgery. Even rebuilt the front yard terraces at Castle Hill with 8 x 4 hardwood sleepers. By myself. The bulges never really grew over the years after I fir...

Re: Kelly's wave.

Oh I imagine some people would be able to rationalise it. I can't. It makes me want to throw up, just a little bit. Been thinking more, it's just odd. Obviously most surfers live near water. So if you spend millions to build one, you either go near water, and hope a small amount of surfers try it, ...

Re: Inguinal hernia, anyone had surgery?

Cheers guys. Yeah Trev, groin. I don't really like the idea of surgery, it's very minor. I do lift weights though, and it really helps my knee strength so would like to keep doing that, so if dr recommends it I'll do the surgery. Have heard of people claiming the mesh can cause awkwardness/discomfo...

Re: Inguinal hernia, anyone had surgery?

The groin, yeah? I've had both done. One in about 1990, the other about 12 years later. First was sewn up. The second had a piece of mesh inserted. Both overnight stays. After the first, done on a Friday, I surfed 8 days later. Never told the doc. After the second, doc told me to wait 2 weeks, which...

I'd like to hear an in depth review on the RTA and their service, shep.

Re: Kelly's wave.

Artificial skiing is probably the best comparison - small controlled environment vs great outdoors. Both impressive technical achievements (I'm thinking the Tamworth snow dome rather than a slab of dendix on a hill) and both offering a watered down facsimile of the real thing. Except nobody ever su...

So you won't be running amok then, laying waste to the good burgers of Lennox head and returning it to the stone age.

I'm very disappointed
Goddam!

I think they made one with a hinge in the middle that you could break in two for travel.

Would that be something you are interested in?
Otway has, or had one. Ingenious.
Also a guy I used to surf with at Fairy Bower had made his own.
