Re: Just general surfing stuff

Btw I have been affected by this, it just doesn’t have any power over my own surfing experience. I didn’t think about it for a moment during that swell last week, and while I might think about it for five minutes when I next paddle out somewhere, the first couple of waves will wash it out of my head...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

That argument: oh this doesn't affect me.....could be right on, or could be incredibly myopic. Too early to tell. You have to at least allow for the possibility of an armada of unintended consequences sailing in from the future. But that vital fact: that Nick Carroll surf journalist is 100 miles fr...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

The darkest day in surfing. The high point of surfing is man in lock step with nature. Waves are gifts from gods for humans to dance upon. It's spitting in the face of the ancients who connected with the ocean all those years past. Its destroying art. It's like book burning They are a ship of fools...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I love Social Distortion! Don’t miss them nick Yes, definitely miss them TMS. I think maybe it's more interesting live. I can't believe they aren't working through the broadcast on the breaks. There is no industry any more d dog, and when they show up, they can lick my balls. Well no they can't bec...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

How the fcuk does Social Distortion fit in with Ralph Lauren Polo?

Sport wise this is kinda interesting live but how does that marketing work?

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Lennox surf rage. First I've heard of this incident from a fortnight ago. https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=1782902661764998&id=280566398665306 Wow, what a deadshit. Steve Shearer, you know this cockhead? I do but I'm not being all Daily Telegraph about it. Nothing would shock me from the...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I think it's fair, legitimate to question assumptions and background to a journalists world view. You think and have a certain world view because of your life history and background, just like me. I agree, question away. A fair bit of my life history and background is on the record, probably more t...

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. I reckon by far the most inte...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Tying up and excluding the public from a prime break so some wealthy real estate agent can make his daughter happy sounds...... not amazing. It sounds fcucking depressing. Well yes, it sure the fcuk is. But not because it's surfing, because it's dull human behaviour. I dunno man, everyone lives in ...

When you can get it Newport for free.
Oh there’s no free lunches at Newport mate.

A Realsurfer recently discovered that by visiting the Ocean Master fish and chip shop. It was probably Beanpole. Anyway he didn’t get away unscathed

Oh he is also on to the latest craze at pro contests: the VIP Pass. Both the WSL pool CT and the air contest in Waco are selling VIP access to their events, with all kinds of extras, better food, better seating, Blink-182 etc etc. At Lowers your VIP pass gets you special seating, food, meet-the-athl...
