Thongs definitely. Two plug prefered. Had thought of getting a pair of sandals for more formal occasions like getting into the rissole after 7pm when you can't wear thongs. Unfortunately nothing like this turned up under the xmas tree :cry:

Last time I went to Byron was about 2 years ago or maybe 3 :roll: . The way they flog it to death in the papers its no wonder you get all these fairly straight tourists roaming around looking for something. What are they looking for? A bong? A new sarong? A new mal? A teriyaki soy burger? A cup of c...

Yeah the Star riot was in 78 or 77 from memory. :roll:
I was an innocent bystander, honest.
Police car went up, streets blocked. Some drunken behaviour went on too.
Now there was a wild old pub :D
No wonder they rioted when they closed it down.

The best surfs I have ever had on a mal were on single fins. My current board has got a great flexy fin that is everything I've been looking for for a while. I actually set my old board up as the full thruster because it was too stiff in beach breaks. I went looking for a big flex fin for it and got...

Star hotel Yeah, as an observer of that little get together and a few New Years up at Tweed/Coolangatta in the 70s I think you have the rose coloured glasses on. I also remember the effect mass dope smoking had in making everyone chill out for quite a few years. I am not proposing this as a solutio...

From what I can tell, 15-20yrs or so down the track, dealing wasn't exactly a bell-ringing career move either (despite carbon's economic treatise). Nick I'd have to say 15-20 years down the track indiscriminate drug experimentation hasn't been a good career move for a lot of peoples mental health or...

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...
