Re: Just general surfing stuff

Heath Joske on Equinor. My gut feeling, based on having a few friends in the maritime industry, is that drilling will go ahead, not by BP for now but there will be others once Statoil / Equinor hit the jackpot. There are certain morons here in SA who are pro oil drilling in the bight, like a mayor o...

Re: Ebay Bargains thread

Something a bit exotic. Looks like one of Rustt’s covers too.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I’ve got to go to Singapore in a few weeks for work and am going to have a week surfing on the way back. Was gonna come back through Bali and see where the waves are but seeing as I’m further West I’d thought I’d check out some land based options on Sumatra to minimise travel time. Was thinking abo...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

just to drop the fcuken hammer again I've been on a transition surf movie bender and that seq of MP at Kirra on Morning of the Earth is still a complete jaw dropper. Go to 43min and something on here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ak-ZsABf3lc&feature=share Like four years before this was shot, pre...

Re: mctavish boards

Decided to give the carver a miss, the guy selling sent me this pic this morning, I think he's asking too much for it and from what I've seen of GSI boards the glass jobs weren't great a few years ago. Also he can't tell me if it's EPS or PU and it was a bit of a drive so I'll pass. https://beta-sta...

Re: mctavish boards

Carvers are great boards IMHO, a 7'7 or 7'11 would suit you well MM MM, what I think Cranked is saying is that you might need to go a little easier on the pie floaters before the 7’6” is a feasible option. I turn 61 tomorrow too Foamy :oops: Nah I still use my 6’ 7” Miller Fish sometimes, so it won...

Re: mctavish boards

@Beanpole....I’ve got my eye on a McTavish Carver on Gumtree, 7’6”
Don’t know what the construction is, eps or pu.
Did they come in both? Have you still got one? Good board?

Okay, Prof. I just went for a surf at Newcastle main beach. The water was very pleasant since it was a hot day. I caught a few waves. :-D-:
Lived there for over 20 years and never surfed in town. No particular reason. Usually to the south and Stockton a lot.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Re safety, yeah fair enough trev and beanpole - you’re pretty old :D they’ve still got feelings. I lived the clubby life when I was younger, but haven’t had any involvement for probably 30 years. It’s not something you forget though, so I can and have helped people in strife and resuscitated a few....

My guess, it’s a long way from anywhere and you generally don’t drive away from waves to find waves
