Re: Where did you surf today ?

Has anyone, as an adult, become close friends with someone they met in the surf? oh fcuk yeah. I didn't know any of the locals at Lowers before I started surfing there in 1991. By the time I moved away from CA in 1997 I was pretty much blood brothers with a lot of 'em. It's a red letter day for us ...

Some of you might remember Mick. Ledge71 on here.
He keeps popping out boards when he feels like it.
His latest project produced this gem.

That is a beautiful board - solid timber or skins?

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

First time for me wearing a long sleeved top with 1 mm neoprene front and back panels in indo
The rest of the top is some thick Lycra type thing

Loving it - no rash. No sunburn no sunscreen. Warm in the wind. And cool in the sun because of the retained water

Yeah steve it's a real love hate thing on the Bukit If your in the area it's a shame not to go I was showing wife's family around so welcomed the chance to get away into The Portuguese speaking mass If it's small to medium crowd is insane But the swell pulsed a little late in the day and it was 15 a...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Token surfs at Balangan. And then ultra low tide racetrack
Both were much better than expected as the swell pulsed as the tide dropped
Even got a long linked up set at Balangan -complete with high line pig dog cover up
So shocked I came in

Those C buckets look tasty.

But if i was to get a new midlength I'd be going to a firewire seaxe next. 7'2 or 7'6. Would be a tough decision.
Will report back on my findings. We are planning a swap fest next lined up swell. when back from east Indo
