I think you are using it to justify the use of recreational drugs, conditionally. However I agree with the statement because the majority of people in this world are shades of grey and IMHO they are the ones who lack the balanced judgement to allow them to take drugs safely. Drugs are a personal ch...

Based on the number of these things appearing on the Sunny Coast, there are some board makers somewhere who are making a killing. Haven't seen someone yet who can ride one properly. Bit of a joke, really.

I have a copy of the Tweed Daily News with a photo on the front page of my younger brother in similar foam at Snapper Rocks in the 60's (he was about 10 at the time). It was always associated with high winds, big seas and rain. By the way there was very little polution around in those days so I don'...

Two offerings. 1/ The Alley at Currumbin from outside the rock to about 5th Av. Palm Beach. That's a looonng walk back (to the creek and then paddle). Only caught one wave that day. 2/ Pre Superbank (read 1964/5) from outside the point to about halfway between Greenmount and Kirra. You could squeeze...

I can't quite match the pig boards but I do have a nice Ray Woosley (Rod Teys, shaper) from circa '67. It's 8'6", wide tail, V bottom with a narrow, sharkfin skeg. I reckon it was made just at the point when they started shaving the length of boards. If this was 9" longer at the back it would be a p...

Caloundra's no good. Stay on Bribie. Just walk north along the beach and look right. And watch out for passing containers ships!

8 minute drive to a Sunny Coast point with several take-off spots and nearby associated beachies. Why is this special? Because for the last 14 years it was Castle Hill, Sydney and 40 min to 90 min trips to and from the Bower or similar.
Oh! And I can now do it any day of the week!

Many, many, many years ago I got both feet full of them at Norah Head. Being a poor ignorant Queenslander on holidays, I didn't even know what they were.
