Re: Just general surfing stuff

Yeah, north county san Diego.
Stay around Solana Beach.
Surf the stretch from San Elijo to Swami's for consistency and hot female longboarders, Blacks if it gets big, Del Mar reefs if it doesn't.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

On the island where my grandma grew up in Fiji the locals wear socks when swimming because the contrast between their soles and their darker feet causes barracuda to attack.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

3-2... should be fine up there this weekend. It's more than enough down here. OBX is a decent getaway. Try to get all the way down to Hatteras, there's a good campground there, Frisco Woods. Bring mozzie repellent. Camping, lol. It's fcuking cold, dude. If you think I can get the wymmins to camp yo...

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

#2 That’s basically my thinking - after following the program since the get go, generally out of interest. There’s a lot more to than anyone thought, they reproduce and grow faster than thought, and in a couple of years those 2.5 m average size will be 3m plus and switching to larger prey than fish...

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

It's not so much that they reproduce faster, it's that the mortality rate has dropped a lot.

Those 2.5m ones will also start to breed soon.

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

Nick covered a couple, one perhaps by accident. If you are recapturing 20% of the sharks in a program that is supposedly a deterrent for a small but unknown population it means 2 things: 1. It's not a great deterrent (as Nick mentioned) 2. There's a lot more sharks than you originally thought. Other...

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

If you want help drafting the request question let me know.

Or better yet, ask Baba to run his pedantascope over it.

If there is any ambiguity whatsoever they'll give you a bullshit response.

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

The politicisation of the public service in Australia is a lot worse than it used to be. I went for an advisor job in a state government department a while back and ended up coming second. The interview feedback was that my answers were too focused on the laws, policy and scientific facts, and not e...

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

Guys you really need to learn how to lodge GIPA requests or get an MP to ask a Question on Notice for you. They have to answer those, legally. As someone who has been involved in the policy-political nexus for a while, I really doubt the scientists are lying to you on purpose. They're getting shat o...

Re: bonzers.....the quad fad is over

Did you remove the pad before you surfed it?
It's a mile too far forward.

I know you said you would, but I don't know if you did.

Yeah, and walk out of flat areas back to the lift, or the car.
I've done a lot of postholing and swimming through powder.

You add skins, poles and specialised bindings.

White can be a frustrating colour for skis. Doesn't apply to boards as much though.
No, it'll be an avalanche anchor tearing my leg off at the knee.

It's from Utah, offshore, think the artist might be a Canadian guy they sponsor.
