Re: New Toy

On Wednesday I was surfing a very small beachie at Maroochydore. Good fun, maybe 50 to 100 metre rides. Using this board and Noel Woods, one of the owners of BeachBeat came out on a current version. I was talking to him about the Pacers. He remembers this board. Not just bullshitting. He told me who...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Only three things give me hope: - That one day GSTQ will face his fears and visit this fair land, and ride with his fellow Realsurfers along something approximating an ocean shoreline. - That Polebean and hatchnam will finally bury the hatchet and go down the coast together to find a rip bowl with ...

I'm with beanie and loof here.
Anyone who owns property would understand the damage which can be done by the wrong tree. Blame the original planters not the people affected by it.

Re: New Toy

Thanks beanie.
I'm really happy with it.
Surprisingly it hangs in well on steep take offs. But yes, straight down and a big bottom turn. Very little rocker, which is what I wanted. So I expected a few nose dives but it hasn't happened yet.

I think you have to watch on the facebook app on a mobile or tablet. Poor quality streaming working on my laptop via the wsl site.
It was good and clear on my desktop during the Kelly v Julian heat this morning. Facebook.

Re: New Toy

yeah sweet, good price too! though i'd prefer a rounded pin tail, for the aesthetic. how would the cut off square differ in performance from a rounded pin? The new one my mate bought has a rounded pin. I've never ridden a rounded pin so I can't compare. I like the square tail because that's the way...

New Toy

Wanted a Pacer for years since one passed the under the arm test years ago. Generally too expensive second hand. New = $1595. Got hold of this one last week for $400. Just a few scratches and marks. No repairs. Rides beautifully and paddles easily. Bargain. https://i.imgur.com/BE1an0W.jpg https://i....

Well I wear hearing aids (30% hearing loss) and with them in then no tinnitus.

When I did (failed) the hearing test the hearing specialist asked if I could lip read.
Hearing aids do nothing for my tinnitus.
It's just.... There.
