Re: Just general surfing stuff

So I tried to watch the surf ranch thingy. Man, Kelly Slater has led the WSL on a merry dance hasn't he? What a complete elitist circle jerk. This grotesque cult like orgy of the privileged is truly repulsive. Sales and marketing 101. Don't lose touch with your customer base. I think the idea is to...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

The points were maxed out with crowds, swell was peaking at 2.5 metres of clean lines
So opted for an outside peak on the black sand beach - where all the surf schools take their clients
Long paddle out to a triangular bank that rolled ricely right and left plenty of punch

Back home tomorrow

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Whale Bay for a few hours in the middle of the day. Rode my 5-11 quartet home made - was hard to get my back foot on the board after riding an 8-1 the last 3 weeks. However despite my kooky footing I managed a few critical drops on the surge The inside section from the surge rock was pretty darn fun...

Marg River cancelled due to Shark activity

How much could be written about this? Tons.
I'm giving up surfing, it's too frightening.
What are you worried about?
You can only die once. :mrgreen:
