Well last time I looked, I wasn't in Hawaii. When I get there, you can round up all your good mates from da hui to sort me out Until then - eat my derision & contempt, dickcheese. It's those sorts of lame comparisons that make you so pitiable - like all the lidders who think they're hardcore becaus...

Its much easier to heap derision and contempt on a 55 kilo bodyboarding grom in Australia than a 95 kilo muscular Hawaiian. It is the brave / courageous traveller who maintains the bodyboarding hate whilst travelling (I'm thinking specifically of Portugal, The Canaries and Hawaii.)

Theres waves I love surfing that suit my style and have lots of interesting sections to hook in to. Then theres the local breaks down the road I know that feeling - not all surf spots are created equal. I look at my local like a junkie looks at Methadone - ok to tide you over but not as good as a p...

Jesus - you must have antifreeze in your veins.

Just bought a new wettie and surfing while being vaguely warm makes it so much more fun.

Gotta love discussion forums, guaranteed to resort to personal abuse within two or three pages.
I reckon since realsurfs relaunch everyone on the forums has been slightly crankier.

Maybe the new site is bringing out the worst in everyone.

Brazilians can be f**ked in the surf but then again so can a lot of other nationalities. When I was in the mentawaiis last year a boat load of Americans were the worst snakes at thunders. They assumed a local attitude because they had been there two days. The American guys on our boat were embarrass...

I was going to go the early from Tuesday onwards this week but seeing as there is no swell on the horizon I'll sleep in and watch Kochie be an overbearing dick on sunrise.

I heard that the search event was going to be at Ulu's.

Maybe I heard wrong but it would be logistically easier to hold it at Ulu's than G-land.

Totally underwhelming final.

The other pros must hate Slater so much. He's untouchable at the moment.

Does AI even care? Three waves, three blown airs. He virtually gifted the heat to TB. Is he majorly over it?

TB is fricken ripping though.

I've used http://www.travelinsurancedirect.com.au (which I think is the same as www.tid.com.au) a few times. They seemed ok although I haven't had to claim on anything.

I love how this forum has degenerated into a slanging match.

Russel Winter was the last true pomgolian on the 'CT. Surfed good, although I heard he had a few personal "issues". SW England does get fun waves. I scored smoking North devon off of a late August Hurricane swell a few years back (which is the Nth Atlantic equivalent of a Cyclone Swell). I also reme...
