Re: Bells

Well I agree wave quality is everything for the tour and Bells has issues, but if they are going to start changing venues, Bells wouldn’t be the first on my hit list. Several other venues have worse waves and/or are less consistent. If the tour is to go to truly the world's best waves, it could be c...

Re: snapper pro

When Slater is getting interviewed at an event, he's always keeping an eye on the ocean. He'll even stop talking as a good one comes though. I love it, the most surfed guy on the planet prefers to watch a good wave than speak during a live interview about himself. The WSL panel sit at a desk with th...

Re: snapper pro

To have to sit through 25 minutes of bullshit on the morning show before you get the call is a fcuken insult to every surfer who is tuning in to the event.
Its a surf check. Make it one for everyone who isn't there.

Re: Ask Carroll

Nick, what would you deem to be the generalised variances in the "styles of surfing" that best embodies and "typifies" surfers in general from their given locations in Australia. i.e; general style/approach/look of surfing ? and if so, what are your examples ? ...we have developed distinct surfing ...

Re: new short board for big...old...guy...

The Webster 'General' and 'Stubby' big-guy boards look like a good compromise for the aging shortboarder. Anyone ridden one?

Re: When u look @ the surf...wat u looking for?

That moment when my mind makes the 'yes' decision to go out, sometimes after long procrastination. Its like a switch is turned and then i can't get out quick enough.

Re: Travel Insurance & Vaccinations

If you haven't already, make sure you get a good physio now. Your probably favouring the good leg so the muscles are wasting on your bad one, meaning your recovery post op can take longer.

Re: Fiji 2014

Tuned in based on the great looking forecast. Solid cloudbreak and restuarants live. Why wouldn't you. First female event I have ever properly watched. Quite enjoyed it too.

Re: Fiji 2014

Right now is a good example. The womens is on hold but no reasons is given why.

As a surfer (their main audience), the reason it is on hold is interesting and worth tuning in for. Whats happening with the swell, wind, tide, surfers expectations etc - this is large a large component of surfing.
