Ok so you Vegetarians are waaaay more spiritually & intellectually evolved and possess a tonne more virtue than those of us who eat meat. I have a few issues with your arguments around the health impact of eating meat. Personally I think all meat is fine IF it's organic & or you know where it has co...

Re: Flesh eating surfers

Insulting NC & vegospamming us with propaganda is unlikely to get the result you are after - Unless the result you are after is an ongoing flame war.

Then again you vege warriors may all be the same bored troll........

Meat may be murder but its fricken tasty

Re: All Bar One

Choosing to surf near someone on an otherwise empty beach could also be a subconscious decision to "reduce the odds" of getting eaten (however remote a chance it is).

Obviously this theory holds little stock in any metro areas.

I first started mucking around on an old beaten up '70's single fin at Waihi Beach (NZ) when I was about 13 or 14. I was catching white wash and definitely getting the Buzz. I even distinctly remember getting my first "green" face wave one summer. Then disaster struck => My parents sold their beach ...

FWIW - I rate Luke at the Ding Doctor over mango.

Mango butchered replacing a rear glass on fin on a semi gun of years ago.

Luke (Ding Doctor) has dropped his prices as well due to moving back to his garage.

Some days I just can't be bothered with surfing in Sydney when its struggling to get to 2 feet and the line up is clogged with people lacking in surf skill on all manner of "alternate" craft.

Oh well only 4 months until Autumn :roll:

The great thing about being a humble surfer is that we do not need fuel for a motor Gotta disagree with you there Marine Jacket Spud. I may not need fuel for my tofu corrolla but I sure as F**k want it to hunt waves that are emptier (& better) than my local spots. Most surfers I know are unafraid o...

Would the taxpayer get asked to fund a sporting association, say like the NRL, if it wasn’t viable? The NSW tax payers are getting rorted to finance V8 supercar racing to the tune of $30 million. http://www.smh.com.au/news/national/why-the-v8-supercars-will-be-taxpayerinjected/2008/09/29/1222650989...

Where do you keep it between surfs?
Stuck on the dash or in with the wax?
Can't speak for zuma but I stick my blu tack to the tail of my board near the leash plug between surfs.

Does anyone who uses it in the surf find they can keep all the water out? I have my doubts but will give it a go.
It doesn't keep all the water out no ear plugs i have tried do - if you have to keep it bone dry I would keep out of the water full stop.

Yeah. I've got too many boards and sometimes buy something I don't really 'need'!!!
You are just way too fickle when it comes to boards.

Remember a surfboard is for (its) life not just for christmas :lol:
