Re: It Begins

IMHO, the last 3 events of the WCT should be just be the top 8-16 surfers and those events be double points or something so the crown cannot be won earlier in the season. This way, the events can be run in a shorter time frame at the peak of condtions worthy of these guys and the title. Recreational...

Where are you at when 'the dream' has been fulfilled?

Quiver for Vic Surfcoast

Thoughts on appropriate quiver and board features for the Victorian surfcoast region for the average bloke. I reckon slightly different boards required compared to say the Sydney region due to different style of waves. More mid to longer period swells but often fuller/flatter style of waves. Probabl...
