Or worse hip hop music. There is a time and a fcuken place and surf videos aint it.

Re: What is missing from so many surf videos - 4 suggestions

Less vids with stupid circus tricks (that's what the ASP World Tour is for) and more with bigger waves and surfers doing nice and long fluid turns etc...

Modern competition surfing is a lot of things, but beautiful and graceful it ain't - that's what's missing.

Decent music. Keep it smooth, mellow and instrumental.

The 5 minute intro. fuschia off with the artsy fartsy inspiration montage and just cut to the surf.

Quadcopters. Need more of this shit as it looks great

Yeah Phil and Paul are the brothers. Very well known name down here obviously, wasn't sure of their reach further afield

Idle curiosity

Nick did you wear jeans with a sports coat and white gym shoes in the 80's as your day-to-day attire?

Re: Surf Cowards

Fcuk, guys used to do that a lot. Seldom with such shattering effect. I don't get it, the person is obviously well known and recognisable, old mate here really should be getting the police on the case. Anyone who thinks a six month old drop-in requires this sort of action has a personality disorder...

When Victorians, Tasmanians, South and West Australians get told by Queenslanders that they should move north because the surfing up there is just awesome

Winki, Torquay area and Phillip Is should probably go on there. Wilsons Prom as well.
Though he did say shortboarder waves, and we all know Vicco doesn't barrel.
Yeah true

Re: Summer 2013-'14

As fcuken hot as it is right now in Victoria it's interesting to remember that December was a write-off as it was cold and southerly winds prevailed. Like many I was wondering that did the best winter in recent memory (2013) mean the worst summer? Apparently not, January has been great. Yesterday w...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Cyrils. The very name evokes terror in the hearts of the bravest surfers. Yeah it's a good one :) Cyrils still has that heavy section that can fcuk you up, but you're right, it doesn't compare to Meanos. Best I ever saw surf it was a guy called Brendan Rooney.
