Hi Wobbo, you got an interesting thread going. As far as the "power structure" is concerned, I reckon anybody who thinks these companies should regard themselves as having a responsibility to develop all sides of the sport are having 'emselves on. Surfwear companies just don't think like that. They ...

I bet you can't do THAT playing golf. What's the good of a sport in which your arse plays no significant role.

Perhaps wanto has some video footage of the event to share with us.

Look, pretty soon there's gonna be a by-election in Pittwater and I bet an independent candidate would split the vote a beauty now that the Liberal Party's golden boy has lost the plot. So ... Larry ... what about it?? Come on! You're of an age. Got plenty of stories. You're outwitting and outvoting...

Nthbeachesguy, perhaps you could suggest the kicker quietly look up the kicked and offer his hand in friendship and apology. Club contest don't equal kick in head, brah.

Yes. First round top seeds are at the top of each heat.

Best of luck with your tipping, everyone, and God help you all, because pro surfing is utterly unpredictable -- unless some psycho talent's on a death-roll in the semi-finals. I will watch with great interest.

Poor bastard just made it worse for himself. Foresee a lot of hard yards ahead of him. Not privy to all the crazy media that's no doubt leaping about in Syd right now, since I'm in that haven of sanity, California. But I reckon Squid's take on this -- his suspicion of the slow leak -- is close to th...

Yeah Rug but then what happens? Do you go backwards again with age ... slowly crumble from the waist down and end up back on your gut hurtling shoreward without turning? Sort of like old people needing nappies, etc. Perhaps this explains the bizarre rash of over-60 bodyboarders I've been seeing at v...

'Tis only a matter of time. But they'll be in May and early June, like they always are. I dunno, Laurie, without keeping close records it's kind of hard to tell how Aug 05 compares. But it ain't been the worst Aug, I know that for sure. The worst August was that of 1979. That month was the centrepie...

Bloody hell, it's a site full of English Genii.

Fong, my professional advice is this: Do not try to make a virtue of linguistic incompetence. 'Cause it'll turn round and bite you in the arse.

The race was crazy. Not my first time, but first time solo on a stock board (12 feet). 54 ks of straight-line downwind paddling, with a last 6ks of battling a reverse 3 knot current. Just unbelievable. Long day's journey into complete bloody mental and physical exhaustion. Aussies did great! Burleig...
