Does Nat Young still live and surf at Angourie? .............or was the beatdown embarrassment too much for him?

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Wouldn't have mattered where I surfed today, it was good everywhere. I went to a less popular spot than the choice of the masses and had some good rides. Just grateful to have done it all before 10am.........didn't that onshore wind destroy it all.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I heard one guest say this morning on the ABC, prior to Dons report, that the surf was 2-3 foot. Then the announcer said unchallenged and in all seriousness that it is head high. WTF? Are they midgets, kneelos, or just translating Hawaiian measurements to practical examples?

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Rock platform right. Crappy waves but had it all to myself for an hour.

Don't you hate it when after an hour the best wave of the day comes in, you catch it and have a good ride, but someone in the carpark sees you, thinks that the wave is regular, and they and their mates paddle out.

Re: West Coast South America

If you really want to take a risk/thrill try the unofficial tour of San Pedro Prison. Suggest you read "Marching Powder" before you go. Read and loved the book! Definately on the list of things to do!.. Thanks for the tips boys and ill keep you updated... Looking forward to hearing all about it.

7,8 x 29 x 4 Complete with shark graphics sold by some gormless chump called Perko.

Al Merrick must be the flimsiest boards on the market. There's a snapped-off nose Al Merrick board with its FCS fins removed that's been sitting on a nearby nature strip for the last week. It looks like it could be easily recommissioned (albeit 6" shorter than original) but apparently no one wants ...

Re: West Coast South America

I didn't surf those places you mentioned but those Chilean lefts sound like the waves a goofy footer would thrive on. The Miraflores area of Lima is safe to stay in and there are plenty of beach break waves there (It's where former world champ Sofia Mulanovich comes from). Definitely learn as much S...

I did a big trip 4 years ago including the Galapagos, Easter Island, Atacama, and Patagonia. Agree about learning Spanish - once you leave the main tourist areas very few people speak English. Even in some tourist areas not all hospitality staff can communicate in English. Machu Picchu is an oxygen-...

It's also a pretty handy skill to have for when the leg rope snaps..........and eventually it will, and usually in bigger stuff.

Son went and looked at a quad he saw on Gumtree. Pity the photos were when it was new.....and it now had a fin snapped off in one plug, big crack in the nose covered in taped etc. $450?
