Re: Quiksilver Pro France 2017

France is good for a heat or two, then the tide changes and everything turns to shit.

I surfed tamarama during the hsc trials in 1981 all to myself and got the best tube I’ve ever had on a borrowed single fin.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

The island this arvo with 3 mates, all to ourselves for a good while. Swell down here was prolly a little more lumpy and disorganised than sydney or further north i would think. Improved somewhat as the easterly dropped away into the afternoon. The swell direction was not too bad and the odd double ...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

NC, Kraig. The possibility of the tour behind a paywall? Does the WSL think there are that many people keen to cough up to watch an event? it would end in tears. the amount of people watching the events have been on a steady decline since the World Tour went from ASP to WSL. Core surfers are turned...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

One thing I certainly don't miss about surfing up here (tweed thru SEQ) is much of the beachbreaks don't make efficient use of swell. All too often the set up consists of a shifting outer bank that is mostly a take off then immediately dies out into a deep gutter, only to reform at half the size on...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Apparently Bronte had the odd one breaking clean from outside the reef through to the shore break at Tama. Don't see that every day. Fcuk, really? It's super rare to get from outside bunny bay past summer reef into tama. Like 30 year rare. The angle is almost horizontal. Only seen a couple of guys ...

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

Bought a wettie yesterday. A quicky 3.5 / 3. Looks the goods. First time with a quick wettie. Been rusted on Rip Curl and O'neill user since forever. Had leaks and seam breakdown with the current 3/2 Rip flash bomb, less than 2 years old. Surf shop dude told me it was a batch thing which they've fix...

well what better reason to design a Wanker Detector? the Narcissism and Arrogance Detection functions are just add ons really A crabmeat designed narcissism, arrogance and wanker detector would be the jizz in Surry Hills.

Re: Rio Pro 2017 - Saquarema

Watched the final day highlights today. All I took from the event is that Yago Dora has a really hot mum. 2nd that. and another thing, given the show is in Rio, why aren't the camera men ogling all the babes for the viewers at home? They're so scaredy-cat about it. Nothing wrong with focussing in o...

How lame is this shit. Like it's written by a computer. They all sound the same. Toledo had a spit after a minor infringement and gets banned from the next comp? It's so fcuking vanilla.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I absolutely fcuking hate the American-style editing of wsl wave replays. When each turn happens and 3/4 of the way through they cut and jump to a completely different camera angle. The editing approach as lampooned by Family Guy, for example. Just show the wave with continuity in its entirety. If ...
