Re: Just general surfing stuff

Arrant piffle sounds like when a drunk Nazi comes back to the hostel and pisses on the floor of the ladies bathroom.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I checked the surf from an Incan temple today, it was solid, maybe 8ft closeout beachbreaks and bigger offshore. There was a surfable looking reform inside one of the islands. fuschia knows how you would've got out there without a ski, and it is 12 degrees and full of petrochemical runoff. I never d...

Re: Kelly's wave.

Nick, how long before we get a breakaway surf competition run by surfers? Please don't tell me never. Ha the way these WSL changes are going down, you just never know what might happen. But honestly, mate, most pro surfers couldn't organise their way into a pie shop. They're pro surfers partly beca...

Re: Kelly's wave.

Webber might want to read up on the energy required to scale waves. Appears he has no idea of the way energy requirements increase with amplitude. His visitation figures are also laughably optimistic. Despite Steve saying Webber's selling out surfing, it looks like Greg's the one being taken for a r...

Looks like a proper bite, but from a 6ft-max shark.

Kind of, 'boo. But it takes about ten years.

Hey, I met you through surfing.

Oh ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I reckon the adult learner quotient would be high at that event. I find the surfing community/tribe thing a bit weird. (Yes, I realise where I am posting.) Perhaps because I am an adult learner myself, sort of. I can see how it would be different if you grew up doing it with friends. I've got a few ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

A beachie on the southern Goldy.
Was a bit Dave Taylor-ish. Large, mean looking, a bit slow and ineffective.
Was good to get the 6'4" widowmaker up to speed and lean into a couple of turns.
The rowing and gym work paid off too, I felt much better than expected.
First surf in a steamer since 2015.

Of that 3.5 million, I'd guess about 750k are middle aged men with a propensity to direct debit and the rest are dodgy Brazilian fuschia and millennial pirates.

Re: winter

Might want to edit that swivel, took me all of 3s to find his name.

I wonder about people who are worried about the future but don't stay healthy. Especially when they have kids.

I left. Not going back. Weather is a main determinant of mood.
I have a mate who's just moved over there to live. Dunedin.
There was a woman involved of course.

Then last Saturday, this happened.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I found a spot over there with good fishing, amazing produce, good surf and close enough to an airport.

Unfortunately it has worse weather than Sweden and the inhabitants share a set of teeth.
