Re: My rashy is killing me

i eventually found something I am 90% happy with. had some time to kill while waiting for a flight so caught a taxi to the mega_super_ripaquickbong district in Denpasar and found a single solitary Ripcurl short sleeve rashy which, given the stretch test, had almost no stretch and didn't feel rubbery...

Re: First OS surf trip.

If you want to try south sumatra, i think the best thing to do is just book a stint at one of the surfcamps. There is a strip of camps/losmen at the villiage of tanjung setia, all right at the wave known as ujung bocur, a longish lefthander of intermediate difficulty. There are other waves, but ujun...

Re: First OS surf trip.

Yep, that's what I meant. If I fly to Jakarta it's to be a stepping stone to somewhere else that is not Lombok. Don't want to add an extra flight if I can avoid it, mostly because of expense. It's all up in the air though. I was looking at going to krui at some point, it's on sumatra and it's land ...

Re: First OS surf trip.

I stopped taking my doxy a few days ago, i was getting big blotchy red whelts on my feet and ankles despite being slathered in 50+ while riding a motorbike. I"ll just take my chances i guess. When booking flights beware of jetstar's shorthaul flights where they use the airbus a320, there is a length...

Prevent sunburn? .
Yes purely for sun protection. Always surfed just boardies in warm water, but at 55 the consequences are becoming evident. Looks like i've come to the right place, thanks for the replies. :B

Yeah the rashy could be a size thing but i'll probably consign them both to snorkelling for now and get a vest.

My rashy is killing me

Started surfing in a rashy for the first time 3 days ago but i'm having dramas sliding around inside it on my chest while paddling. It sticks to the board o.k. Just not to my chest. It's like laying on a slab of moss. In the process it's also cheese-grated a layer of skin off the bottom of my sternu...
