How was the shot where he gets bucked through the chandelier by the foam ball. Red Phantom shot.

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. Like this is the planet they live on: Natasha Ziff is currently employing Nathan “Hog” Hedge to scout the Philippines and Hainan etc for spots to visit on her next surf trip. Hog i...

Re: Mentawai quiver.

Jesus christ. Allen key sets often come with star keys as well -- they have splayed hexagonal edges flaring out from the shaft. Use one of them, a size too big. But it's probably too late if you've already tried to drill it. I have a rule that might be of use in the future for others as well: if an ...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

not even if you had the pool all to yourself? Mate just before coming over here I had a 10-12'+ deepwater reef to myself, about a k and a half from my house (800m of that was water) Got six or seven waves, any one of which was worth a day by yourself in that pool. I might feel more like it after th...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Not this time. I didn't want a bar of it frankly. Don't really wanna surf it again at all.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I'm just getting to this podcast with Nick in it. He's really very entertaining and has a much more mellifluous speaking voice than Californians. https://beachgrit.com/2018/09/listen-man-killed-god-then-took-a-nap/ well the truth is that's not a fair comparison, everyone has a mellifluous speaking ...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

There's a little nugget in an otherwise fairly uninteresting piece with Jay Leno in an old episode of Top Gear where he says that the arrival of the automobile saved the horse, shifting it from hard worked transport vehicle to leisure accessory in half a generation. Maybe the wave pool will do the ...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

But seriously, this wasn't a full scoring WSL event, right? I wonder if Kelly would have turned up if the pool wasn't his. I doubt it. Why the fcuk do you reckon I went there? First pool CT since Allentown. Here's some reporting I did https://www.coastalwatch.com/surfing/25123/the-ranch-day-one-nic...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Hahahahaahha this is gold! NC and Sean have blacklisted Steve for 2 decades because he wouldn't write what they wanted him to write. Now its all coming to the surface here where it belongs on realsurf. Steve stayed true to his principles and he is finally being vindicated. Poor but vindicated. Fcuk...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

thats just a lame personal attack that's not true Nick. The very last person I'd expect to shepherd me through a "moral crisis" would be a surf mag editor. I made contributions, they were rejected. I wrote letters and emails, they went unanswered. What I had to say , was not required, nor publishab...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I spent 20 years unpublishable while the gatekeepers like Carroll and Doherty preserved the status quo. Oh fcuk off, don't play the victim. I and a number of other editors constantly prevailed on you to contribute, but no, there was almost always some problem with doing so, the publication had alwa...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

is there a crowd there? there's zero sense of crowd involvement on the broadcast. it's so weird. Not really. Seemed like the numbers increased by maybe 800, but people came and went. Ticket sales are far from the Founders Cup thing. This place is so huge though, even a bigger crowd would disperse t...
