Re: Ask Carroll

Hi aj, hope you and NC don't mind if I add to Nick's reply, as I've just been through the same thing. Nick has addressed everything I went through spot on, I still fluff the occasional take-off but I'll just add the following hurdles I found. Equipment, started in a steamer, as the weather warmed i ...

Re: slater boycotts japan event in protest dolphin slaughter

I personally witnessed Dolphins being shot at sea when I was working on a Tuna boat in SA. They would attack our Pilchards at the side of the boat as they were being netted for live bait, no Pilchards=no tuna fishing. The .303 was never far away from the action. They don't pole Tuna anymore in Port ...

Re: Ask Carroll

On the weighting discussion, I wouldn't think there's much call to shift the feet much, if at all on todays mostly sub 6' boards? I'll probably never own a board shorter than 6' 4", but even on that board I didn't realise how often I was shifting my feet without thinking about it until I wore bootie...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

First surf back in Oz since Indo at my local beachy, 3 foot and kinda sloppy but public holiday crowd were laid back, first time wearing a wetty on the board too. A hasty comb over on tropical wax wasn't good enough though. :oops:

Re: V. small wave grovellers

Sometimes I wish I still had my Don Burford clubby racing mal, that thing was the most fun you could have on your knees. It was amazingly agile on a decent wall.

Re: Ask Carroll

Recently you mentioned possibly of heading off to Hawaii soon, which got me thinking. Is it a viable surf destination for someone who's had too many birthdays and a self imposed ceiling of 6' on wave height? Any bigger and I'm in survival mode these days, and not having fun anymore. I've always assu...

Re: floatation aid

I inadvertently pulled the rip-cord on my inflatable PFD-1 while getting out of the boat at the ramp one day, much to the amusement of everybody present. There is no way you could swim in one of those things once inflated, you are quite hamstrung.

In hindsight a good call by the mod. Nobody wants to see the aftermath of a bizarre gardening accident involving a high profile polly and a pointy garden gnome.

Re: Peeing on your hands to cure blisters.

Had a mate a few years back with a German girlfriend who was quite a bit older than him. She used to drink the first piss of the day every morning, both his and hers.. That must be a very German thing to do, there was a German couple going to the gym I use, who used to drink their own pee…..geez ma...

Re: Treat the CAUSE not the SYMPTOM

I'm going to experiment. I have Blueberries on my cereal, and that site says berries have a lot of salicylates, which can cause dizziness, it's a good place to start.
Health was so simple for the first 50 years, now it's a hobby. :(

Re: Treat the CAUSE not the SYMPTOM

The body can throw up some real mysteries. I've been getting weird dizzy / swimming head kind of episodes for a couple of years now. Sometimes it goes away for a few days, and it usualy only lasts a couple of hours but comes and goes, but it's only mild and doesn't stop me doing anything I want. Som...

Re: First OS surf trip.

When I got to my last tropical destination and went to pull the board out of it's travel cover, it was glued in. It must have been left sitting in the sun for some time on a tarmac baggage train. Had to get a long stick in there and pry things apart. :lol: I used O'Neill superfreak booties and was s...

Re: Ask Carroll

Yes well it isn't going to do you much good karma wise if you go around doing bad deeds to people justifying it because its their karma. If you believe the premise then their karma has nothing to do with whether you are going to fry as a toasted cricket in your next life. I was joking there, it's t...

Re: Ask Carroll

Nick do you believe that Karma really operates in the world?
Personally I've found that it seems to apply when I'm in Asia, but not so much in Oz, and friends have made the same observation
I like the idea that I can do bad things to people, and assume they had it coming.
