Re: Just general surfing stuff

Jimmy I've got a mate who does aid work in Aceh.
He surfs, and has been trying to get me there for years. I can ask him for some info.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I saw a guy on a new Christenson get so rag-dolled on the rock-off on Sunday. Why do you think he is the best designer in the world Nick? He seems to be able to design and shape pretty much anything, from supergun paddle-in craft for Jaws etc (see Greg Long, numerous others) to classic Fish and lon...

Re: General snow stuff

I'll email you.
Some are fairly under the radar, loofy wouldn't be happy for me to blow them up.

You'd also greatly benefit from speaking some Nihongo for some of them.

Re: General snow stuff

Had a great second week.
5 resorts, lots of snow.
A couple of the best powder runs I've had, and I've been pretty lucky in the past.

Definitely recommend having a car, despite having to dig it out and clear the snow off it a few times.

Re: General snow stuff

Had 5 days riding at Madarao and Tangram. 2 were epic, thigh to waist deep blower pow. One was warm and a bit slushy, one was whiteout, one was bluebird with no new snow so I spent it on the groomers. Packed the wife and kids of to the airport, now I'm getting a train to northern Honshu for a week-l...

What sort of seaweed, duck?
Got a mate who is a marine botany expert, I'll ask him.

Re: General snow stuff

8:30 to 4:30 with a half hour for lunch. No pauses, ride straight to the lift.

Unless I'm with Mrs Boo or the Boolings, then there's much faff. Same hours, but many stops and about 5-6 hours of riding.

Re: General snow stuff

One warm day and one powder day so far.
About 40cm last night and another 10cm or so throughout the day. Was waist deep on some runs, and thigh deep in the trees.
Been taking it pretty easy as I've still got another 10 days.

Re: General snow stuff

Didn't split the board.

Arrived in Iiyama tonight, there's a foot of fresh.
Head up to Madarao tomorrow, hopefully my board will be waiting there for me. The hotel said they won't be able to pick us up because there'll be too much snow.

Is there any part of your body that works properly Ricky? Get an ear syringe first, and use hot water in the shower. Be careful! There's also stuff at the chemist to dissolve wax that actually works.
