... The problem for me is if I see any politician doing their usual "support the troops" shit I may snap, take up arms and march towards parliament house. Those bastards have fu.cked and abused our soldiers over Iraq and I've had enough of them. May I remind those that have forgotten. Little honest...

Trust me Slowman, you'd have absolutely no chance against a top 45 pro in a paddle race, and none of 'em find the lineups at Bells or Snapper in the least challenging to negotiate. There's no "test" for them in paddling back out, it's just a question of time and opportunity wasted for both competit...

^^^ why would using jet ski lifts out the back favour Andy or Kelly?? And its not the paddleing out that stopped MP, or make Occ retire. That was sarcasm. Watch the clubbie events if you want a paddle comp, surfing is about riding waves... Is that what you think I said? Please, don't have children....

maybe they should have a paddling race to decide the winner A slight misconstruction of what was said! Equally then, we could eliminate paddling altogether and have them just ride a flow rider wave. I would actually like to see a paddle race between the 45 WCTers and I'll bet money the ones in the ...

...I've watched a few heats at Bells live over the years and even as a surfer, it is a tad f##king boring watching empty waves reeling off as two guys take 5 - 10 minutes (depending on swell size) to paddle back out after riding waves in the same set. A lot of people who go to watch these events ar...

I wouldn't mind getting paid what Tom Boonen gets paid, or Robbie McEwen (Aus) for that matter, who is just to the left of Boonen. McEwen surfs too but I think he knows where his bread is buttered.

Spot on.

The perfect place for those things is at Malabar or perhaps Ours, who needs a jet ski?

I read the interview in the current Tracks issue with Macca and Sunny. They said they wanted to give an honest and realistic portrayal of the Bra. They knew they could have applied the white wash but they wanted it to be believed and taken seriously. BTW, it seems frightening to me that the SMH woul...

I think there comes a point where nothing will save you from a hiding when it is big enough. At that point I chuck! Only when there is someone behind me I try to duck dive. Sometimes standing on the board to submerge it as much as possible helps. When you get hit by 8' of white water and get swept 5...

I'll have a crack at it. A Kook is a surfer with an exaggerated idea of his or her actual surfing ability and importance, and behaving as such, in or out of the lineup. Pretty close Nick but I think that is the definition of a wanker, someone whose ambition exceeds their ability. Apparently politic...

Depending on where you go, Hawaii is one of the best places in the world to pick up quality second hand boards for reasonable prices. Travelling with any board is a tricky business. Recently Jetstar managed to put a 2" x 2" compression in the nose of one of my boards during a flight back from the S...
