Re: Ask Carroll

Does a fish trifin need a tail pad? Never used one on a twin fin, always do on a thruster.

Re: Fins WTF

Sweet. So anything with 2 tabs looks like a goer.
PS it's a MR flying fish with thruster fin setup: any recommendations? I've never experimented with fins before...

Re: Fins WTF

I have usually used boards with glassed in fins.
I have one board with FCS boxes: if I want to play around with fins am I stuck with the FCS brand? or will other manufacturer's fins go in there too?

Chopes at 4-6 foot: advanced hellmen only, or could an average/intermediate like me have a crack?

Re: Seeking suggestions for first surfari.

Pasta Point, Maldives.
Surf and eat. It's unreal.
Don't leave it too late in your time frame as the new resort at Sultans/Honkys I'm told will be up by the end of next year, so you can't surf them any more from Pasta.
Actually, how about the new resort at Sultans/Honkys.

[quote="alakaboo"] Testuhiko Endo has explored this in more detail for anyone interested. Fcucking disgusting, hey. But Venice beach skate park is full of black skaters. There was no skating in the 1920s. But Huntington is not full of black surfers. I used to take my board on a pretty long fcucking ...

Re: Bong in big trouble

Yeah I was tempted to put the house on it. But really it was a 50/50 bet at best.

Re: Ask Carroll

Guru Nick,

why is it that African Americans seem to not have taken up surfing to any great extent? Given their ability to dominate many sports, surely we should have had a black world champ by now.
Has there ever been a Brother on the Tour?

Re: Bong in big trouble

I dropped in to my local SDS yesterday and walked out with a pair of on sale Platinum bong boardshorts. RRP $79.95 Sale price $10.00 They are actually a nice pair of boardies, first major label ones I've bought in 15 years I think. But I don't understand. Are they selling their stock at a loss? Or w...

I was confronted with the surf vs sex dilemma this morning. Always results in the same choice.

Re: Serious injury at the Pass

A mate of mine got the Bronte-Tama wash around once on a big day (maybe that was him Beanpole?). He wears a helmet (medical condition), he says he got a huge wack on the head from his board going across the rocks, thinks it saved him. I have taken to wearing a helmet when surfing shallow or unfamili...
