Re: Where did you surf today ?

chest high south straddie-like peaks here too. i ripped the full deck grip off and the board is so much more lighter. it's unbelievable. it's great to be on wax again too. Once my feet hit the deck grip, they weren't moving. at all. so much poo stancing i could have easily walked away from surfing f...

Re: Pipe Masters 2017

Just caught up with an old mate. Had his surfing trip to the Telos cancelled when an old man orangutan in Sumatra broke a branch off a tree and speared it at him. Almost cut his arm off. wow ... of all the dangers out there on remote surfing trips, near-fatal orangutang attack is something I've nev...

Re: Pipe Masters 2017

ha ha Teahupoo under six foot pretty much cut Keala Kennelly's face off. it was 6-8 when keala came off. that was the tail end of the code red swell, which had heaps of west in it. ie the end pinches pretty much on dry reef if you don't flick off the wave. I was there. Standing right in front of it...

Re: Pipe Masters 2017

Looks steep as fk. Nick - in say the 6-8 foot range - in terms of criticality- how does banzai pipe compare with redsands or cowries in SH ? Because that’s proper heebie jeebies surf. ha ha ha it's a complete other level. When it's being itself, Pipeline doesn't just pitch, it lurches and twists at...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

just had one of those super competitive beachie sessions. an unreal bank, one of the best i've ever seen on the goldy. 2-3 foot and peeling like trestles. a bit of water moving for the size – a testament to how shallow it was, i guess. couldn't stop paddling and jostling for position or you were toa...

Only day trippers we "broke into" were the Brisso tourist gals who flocked to the Island on holidays.

Even a slimey soap dodger like you Loof might have got lucky.

Re: Bribie Island Board Riders

God Carroll, can you please stop cross-pollinating from one forum to the other. What goes on there is there and what happens here is here. But it is true.
