Depends if the spray paint is epoxy, enamel or acrylic. Obviously it depends on what you are spraying as well since fibreglass and epoxy don't mix by all reports. Acrylic should be safe on anything but it won't last. Bodyboard material I really don't have a clue about. Might react with the solvent i...

Looking for a bit of aggro there Principal?
I'd be skipping the old Anga if you think Crescent is cut throat these days.

I drove out there twice last year. First time it was just graded up to racecourse. Hit the corrugations before plummer about the same time I passed this old geeza in a huge 4x4. He was coming from Port I guess and he was towing a huge power boat The road was shaking the shit out of it and he had a v...

I've only had 2 mals that can pull into a holllow section and come out. Luckily I'm riding one now that does it.
As far as I can work out those stabilising side fins really screw it up :wink:

Thanks for the prophecy lucky al :shock: .
Something we poor misguided fools can contemplate as we go about our useless, meaningless lives.
Back to mung beans and self flagellation for you I guess.
You sound like you need a surf mate.

Re: Longboarding in WA

Hi. This is my first post and I've seen how vicious most of you are to each other so go easy on the newbie. I have just moved to Mandurah and am looking for good spots nearby for a mellow longboard wave. Not interested in battling with your usual aggressive Aussie shortboarder type but don't mind s...

I think an overlooked element is how you carry your board to the water. Also how high up you wear your boardies. Progressive-half hanging off your backside and long. Trad-pulled right up near your arm pits to cover the gut and short in the leg. Sluggoes are also an option for the real traditionalist...

A clear example of the need for the retention of student union fees They're supposed to produce subversive material with that kind of information in it.
