Re: Just general surfing stuff

Here is one of the oil spot glazed pots i made back in the day. It's a yellow spot and a bit of a small spot which was a bit shit in that it wasn't well defined like the Song dynasty ceramics spots.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Not quite on the same thing but when i did ceramics many years ago one of the things i tried to achieve at college was to recreate a Song dynasty oil spot glaze. it was an assignment where you had to try and recreate a glaze from antiquity. As you would know, the Song dynasty was kind of a fcuk off ...

Well, you're an architect rather than an Engineer, Duck. You're just looking at it from an aesthetic point of view. Architects like wabi sabi because it is an excuse when they Fcuk something up.
yep, you're in the right of it Beany, i fcuk shit up all the time.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Sitting outside just now and felt the wind change. The southerly is starting to back around to the west, finally. Earlier today I saw a black snake, a magnificent black snake, on the bush path to the beach, about 5 metres back from the beach dunes. Only caught the last half metre of it’s tail at fir...

After 3 or four near misses, I'm now really paranoid. No shark deaths is one of the great things about indo!
Care to elaborate on any Cranked? How near were the misses?

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Was rubbish down south, too close to the source probably. 3ft sets at best, closeouts everywhere. Wind went s/e and put a decent chop through it by lunchtime. Went out anyway as the tide came back in and the closeouts weren't quite as closey outy. Wasn't a bottom 50 but certainly wasn't anything wor...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

True dat. I remember John McGroder telling us it would be 2 to 8 ft before we got to a particular spot in the Ments on his boat. We were somewhat confused but he was bang on. Take off was 8ft, kick out at the end was around 2ft.

You could have dropped in on The Duck. Maybe you did.
No burnings this week end beans, just disappointment in where i surfed and my rank capabilities.
