Re: Where did you surf today ?

Steve could do eleven tricks I reckon 1) pop up 2) trim 3) floater 4) cutback (standard not full cranked roundhouse) 5) slash 6) snap 7) barrel 8.) 360 (once in 1989) 9) bottom turn 10) check turns 11) re-entry Don't forget this winning move. Guaranteed 10. https://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb195...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

The person who gave them the most shit about calling it off was Mark Healey. He kept calling BS on the claim they didn't run it because they didn't have the boards, he kept saying that the big wave guys said they could use theirs. I'm actually glad they called it off, the wsl would've wasted most of...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

There were some mechanical shutdown barrels in Yamba yesterday in the devil wind. I mindsurfed them for a half hour, knowing full well they were too fast, then suited up and headed out (first time in a steamer in about 2 years*). Threw myself over the ledge on about 25. It was a late drop, bottom tu...

Re: Nth NSW sharks. Can they p!ss off already?

About a dozen other shark species caught, two marlin, and a couple of tangled turtles. Mortality very low, less than 2%. Once you put a tail rope on a shark, it will be settle down. Assume they use a whole mullet for bait. Mild steel Circle hooks used, very effective in hooking in the side of the j...

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

Couldn't you just wear those neoprene socks some boogers wear?
Latex socks to ride 20knt onshore kneecappers in the rain seems a bit much.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I actually thought some of his earlier heats were pretty weak, he wasn't matching the speed of the wave.
But he stepped up. That finishing move on the lower 9 was crazy.

Potts was his groupie in the booth, arguing with judges who didn't give him tens.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

If you look at the replay of the first big top turn on kolohe's wave just now there's something big in the wave.
About the 26 minute mark.
I just tuned in and don't have my bearings, it could be a ski, or strider.
