Re: Move OVer SUP's, theres a new arsehat in town!

Saw a guy doing this the other day. He was about 45, had a couple of young kids trailing along behind him while careening down the footpath like this: 3155609.jpg It troubled me deeply. Note: image sourced from Seabreeze hill bombing in bare feet is heaps fun for ALL ages! but i'm confused, hey mic...

Re: car key safety?

as many have mentioned, i too use the surflok. it's really the only solution for cars with electronic keys that do everything. although i have since dropped my key into my wetsuit bucket & the [email protected]#$%%^ button activated keyless entry doesnt work anymore. i actually have to put the key in the door to ...

Re: Internet, phones and crowds

I may be having a whinge and the horse has already bolted but if as I've already said before if we generalise the reports and don't all ring our mates when we find waves then it may just help a little to lessen the crowd. I reckon it might be the other way round. Been doing a lot of actual research...

Re: Reckon its possible to over surf?

while the above two posts are extremely accurate & logical,... the trick is to drink that much bintang that the hangover is far worse than any muscular fatigue... thus putting the focus on missing out on epic waves due to a hangover, not sore muscles... THAT is enough to drag any decent surfer out o...

Re: what have you sacrificed for surfing?

i'd like to be able to say the same - no I wouldn't - i moved up here in early 1993 to avoid northern beaches traffic congestion, crowds, and an excessive amount of tourists - just a moderate amount of tourists sprinkled throughout the year is MUCH better. So, I have sacrificed decent returns on pro...

Re: Should surf writers and journos be able to surf?

Most people who don't surf couldn't give a rats arse about surfing, they at best find it mildly entertaining for about 15 seconds. They have no interest at all in surfers (except from a Sir Robert Helpman/Sarge perspective) and view them with anything ranging from contempt to mild amusement. Stop k...

Re: Designs for front foot and backfoot surfers

i'm curious, if you are a backfoot surfer, why don't you like tail rocker?
my foot rolls out like you, i'm also a backfoot surfer & tail rocker, IMHO is the best thing for manoeuvring in the pocket, tight snaps off the top, is the best thing since sliced bread.
