Re: Japanese Whaling

Im against whaling myself, but it sh!ts me how damaging peoples attitudes can be towards Japanese people. MOST Japanese people themselves dont eat whale, and are not supporters of whaling, and it only a few small areas that still hold on to this 'tradition' of whaling. What about having a go at Icel...

Even the longboarders couldn't do a turn on those fat, slow, dreary looking waves. Worth surfing at the temperature that water must be?? I think not...

Re: Skin Cancer

All talk of arse raping aside, I've got issues with the use of the word 'toxins'. Anything can be toxic to human health. Too much water can be lethal. Too much oxygen in the air can kill us. etc.. It's all about dose and how much the individual human can safely cope with. I'm still waiting for info...

Re: places you just cant surf anymore

Up untill a few years ago never even saw another soul surf it. Seriously shallow legde with very short surfable tide window. Agree with...

Re: Door to Door Surfboard Delivery - Thoughts?

Im one that's bought a custom online after a bit of discussion with the shaper. Didnt really get pressured into making an order, the shaper was happy to just chat design which helped me to build up my own (then) very basic knowledge. Before long I had 3 sticks, all very different, from the same shap...

Re: Blu tac as ear plugs in tropics

I busted my eardrum by getting lipped square in the ear, had the full loss of balance, couldnt stand up even in waist deep water, and felt like i was hallucinating, the beach was waving up and down like a big swell does. Pain was pretty instant, and blocking the nose and blowing resulted in a dirty ...

Re: Rubber

yeah I cant do the bare back thing, too paranoid about the sun. A 1mm vest or long sleeve rashie does the job. Hatchy, what does the water temp max out at down there?? I can understand wearing a steamer down there, but in Syd, and further north, just comfort factor. Rubber = harder to paddle, get to...

Rubber

It gets done every year, most are probably sick of hearing about it, but im going to bring it up again. When surfing on Tuesday I was loving the water temperature (Sydney). Felt warm as and perfect to be paddling around in, but the amount of full length rubber on display, at midday, under a hot sun ...

Re: Bali, Compulsive disorders and religion

Religion is what sets the moral compass of those who believe. They don't (insert sin) because it's against God, because God told them not to. I tend not to, say, kill, because I don't believe it's my right to deprive another person of their life. Also, I wouldn't like to have it done to me. If a be...

Yeah the God of the bible sounds like a cnut. Im glad he's not real. my thoughts exactly. And if he was real i would never want to be 'saved' by such an evil character. but on OCD tendencies and religion I think it's an interesting thought, but not something that can blanket everyone who is religio...
