Re: Where did you surf today ?

Gotta agree with not-blocked b'pole. Always attempt for good wine without the negative reaction Mostly ok and the odd good one. Some woeful, but came unstuck last week with our charitable attempt at looking after struggling winemakers. Drinking partner had no morning reaction. My hangover was killer...

Re: PAIN RELIEF

That's from some advice I gave digger. Works for me. I usually take a NSAID (Meloxicam) prior to surfing. Rarely use pain relief medication and I'm well beyond the time my surgeon said I'd be back for surgery because the pain will become intolerable

Is that the 2nd time you've brought that up? If it wasn't you, maybe someone else. He has a commitment to the Comm Games? If he does, that's astounding given the timing. Maybe he thought the comp would've been done by now or didn't expect anything other to have been personally finished. Still ........

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Either seriously deluded and thinking surfing would be easy or he has serious mental health issues. Either way he has too much money Many years ago I went into the surfshop in Margaret River with a mate who was picking up a custom. Bloke in the shop was in the process of selling a family of 4 new bo...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Was there any demonstration at the WSL contest? Was noise about a paddle out, but I missed it if it happened. Fair to presume it didn't because it wasn't mention it in your BG account of the final?

Re: Summer

Nah, it is what it is. Felt good to wear a shortjohn and thin vest. Gunna buy a good 3/2 and try it with the shorty through winter. 4/3 is getting too hard. Besides, I can't get out of the chest zip without assistance Got a barely worn 4/3 Excel top of the range for sale if anyone is interested Size...

Re: Summer

0/10 for me as I only had my first surf since Nov on Saturday.* Contrary to Rustt, excellent conditions prevailed at Gunnamatta. Scored a couple of good ones, but paddle fitness had totally deserted me. Rip fcuked me over a few times

Onshore on the Western except for day 1 when the swell was tiny. Went to Martha Livinia for a look, but it was barel...

I'm living in Port Campbell now. Buckets of room for the bus in the backyard if you'd like a little detour on the way down

King Island is spectacular. Spent a couple of weeks there and would return at moment's notice

Re: Strahan tassie

Good the fcuk on you, digger. One day for sure. Stone's throw from the West and day trip to the NW. Plenty of gems nearby, in and out of the ocean. My mum spent much of her childhood on Robbins Island. I need to get there before I'm dead. Closest I got was a fantastic left just near on the mainland
