Re: Just general surfing stuff

Honestly gang, can I tell ya, they could not give a rats arse about the surf media or the core surfers, at all. At all.

Some were OK, mainly the hill towns, but there was nothing compelling to make me want to go there at all, let alone again. I think the endless civil wa...

Re: Mentawai quiver.

The towns we stayed at were Colombo/Negombo, Kandy, Nuriwa Ella and Galle. And, obviously, we passed through a fair swathe of Sri Lanka as we did that circuit. A primary aim of the trip was to check out if it was a place we would want to go to regularly. The answer was no. Didn't check out the surf ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Perfect conditions today and yesterday, fairly regular sets up to double overhead.

I just sat by myself 50m further out and 50m up the line from the pack and just took the biggest and best set waves. Four hours yesterday, three today. Lifes a bitch.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Surfing was a way to get away from, and thumb your nose at the corporate world, its very antithesis, now, for fcuks sake, it has been subsumed into that corporate world.

Reject that stultifying corporate embrace, rebel NOW while you can still tread the path of freedom.
