Sounds like about at my skill level these days. Keen for a few low key surf jaunts in the next year.
Go hard beany, don't go soft cock. Go to the telos, ment's end. Good waves there. Keep your heart pumping.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Cmon duck, spill the fuschia beans. Some mates are already booked at Vanimo so it’s there or nowhere
Jesus Lats, let me finish my dinner.
I'm going to flick over to just stuff with the Vanimo review. See you there.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I’m thinking of going to Vanimo resort in png. Anyone been? Waves look alright and culture looks interesting. And they claim not crowded https://www.vanimosurflodge.com/gallery/?gallery=0Byby-VRhYOwyWWdJSUJGMUlsWDA I’ve been. Wouldn’t recommend. Better spots in PNG according to a mate that’s been t...

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

When mrs duck wanted me to teach the ducklings to surf I was diligent about it for a while and they feined interest in it for a bit. It usually led to me jumping on a coolite or longboard after their feined interest and surfing while they played in the shorey. On another note, shrug just left the ba...

Slightly before my time I think. They do put them on kids' suits still, which is an absolute fuschia godsend when you've got three of them to wrangle
Do all your offspring surf GStQ?

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

Do you remember when ankle zips were the norm on wetsuits? Fcuking wetsuit material was so stiff ankle zips were standard on steamers. Early to mid 80s from memory. I was quite fond of them.

comically short arms and enormous feet by the sounds of it. I've never considered this before but perhaps he is an actual duck

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

You, my good sir, should be aware that my so called t-rex arms are Gowings standard length. Neither shorter nor longer. You obviously have no flexibility or technique available, so the easy task of removing a wetsuit becomes difficult. You and shearer should team up in the carpark so you can help ea...

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

Annoying to get in and out of? Let’s examine that for a moment or two. We are talking 3/2 steamers here, let’s be clear, although 4/3s and even 5/4s can join the fray. The most difficult component of releasing oneself from a steamer has nothing to do with chest zip or back zip, it’s the fcuking legs...

DID YOU HEAR THAT, LURKING CORPOS? NO MORE fuschia CHEST ZIPS. THE PEOPLE* HAVE SPOKEN * Not all of them, obvs, but enough. You can offload your suddenly redundant stock of chest zips to those thick necked mutants in Perth Mildly retarded people always struggle with front zips, often their fly’s ar...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Swell's kicked up over the last few of hours down south. Easy double overhead now at a few spots and the beaches are maxed out. Blue sky and westerly breeze is making it look lovely.

Re: post your modern day sickness

I find it almost impossible to tell how good a board is from a photo. The distortion is always so deceiving. Like Channels board looks great in the first shot of the deck but looks weirdly elongated and stretched out in the underside shot that shows the channels. Don't think i could ever buy a board...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Went for the late. A mixed bag but not bad if you snared one. Yup. I waited until the crowd dispersed. Can't believe how crowded the south end got. Fcuk there's no banks around here. It's dire. As the swell grew yesterday and the easterly wind lay down, there would have been some waves, but there w...
