Re: Just general surfing stuff

I came late to the Tom Curren is God Concept. At the time he was competing I was a patriotic Aussie backing The Shorter Toms power surfing and Aussie surfers in general. It's mainly his after comp persona that has impressed me. Some seriously good alternative surfing.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Nah, he's in a league of his own. He has basically remade Margarets as a comp wave.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I prefer watching the current crop of top hotshots a lot more than the previous crew. Never thought I'd find Margarets as exciting as it is now.

Well grief works in mysterious ways. Often a sense of loss can feel like a feeling of being in the wild. Also losing an elder family member is the precursor of fundamental change n your life that maybe your senses feel before your logical mind processes the implications.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

When my mum died many years ago....I walked down to the beach for a swim at Wommin Bay on the day of the funeral with an old girlfriend who had come over to give a bit of moral support.

On the other hand......Nick, unlike everyone else on here, rarely paddles out without knowing someone. Guess it's a novelty.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Well, the otherness of surfing is negated by comps and romanticised by the companies....but it still floats out there.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

There's always tags setting off Forster. There must be a resident shark that has tootled around the breakwater for the last five years. My brother in law lives there and it's a regular joke.

Article said whales were now breaking on the Gold Coast rather than further north.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Well, they made their excuses for yesterday. The good raps he's been getting are worth more than the score though. Speaking of raps.....some people were a bit nasty to Nick over on Coastalwatch over his rap about Stephs 10 Pointer at Keramas..

So just drove around with a hangover looking at surf then.
Pretty much. Not much of hangover though. I've got a sore thigh for some reason. Might be the shoes I wore yesterday. If I was a bit younger and feeling like copping a few on the head I would have gone out.....if there wasn't a comp on.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Bronte was big with a comp on. The odd really good looking peak was cresting out past the pack n between close outs. Good clean up set washed the whole crew halfway to shore.

Luke owns Commne at Keramas doesn't he?
I don't mind the commentary that much and it's always good to see Strides freezing his butt off out in the line up. Brazilians killed it yesterday while I was watching.
