Re: Where did you surf today ?

A beachie on the southern Goldy.
Was a bit Dave Taylor-ish. Large, mean looking, a bit slow and ineffective.
Was good to get the 6'4" widowmaker up to speed and lean into a couple of turns.
The rowing and gym work paid off too, I felt much better than expected.
First surf in a steamer since 2015.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Of that 3.5 million, I'd guess about 750k are middle aged men with a propensity to direct debit and the rest are dodgy Brazilian fuschia and millennial pirates.

Re: winter

Might want to edit that swivel, took me all of 3s to find his name.

I wonder about people who are worried about the future but don't stay healthy. Especially when they have kids.

I left. Not going back. Weather is a main determinant of mood.
I have a mate who's just moved over there to live. Dunedin.
There was a woman involved of course.

Then last Saturday, this happened.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I found a spot over there with good fishing, amazing produce, good surf and close enough to an airport.

Unfortunately it has worse weather than Sweden and the inhabitants share a set of teeth.

That drift Jordy did in his 'perfect' heat was next-level.

That's how I paid off my home loan in 4 years, and you can do it too!
Just send $4000 to [email protected] and I'll tell you how!

Re: J-Bay Pro 2017

I try to think of these things a bit more loosely boo. Doing a lot of writing and research here and trying to surf my brains out, it's a grand combination I can tell ya. It was just the opening sentence of the paragraph about Fred, which you used twice. Looked to me like you had that sentence and t...

Re: J-Bay Pro 2017

That's also stated in Endless Summer 2, foamy. Owen can go straight up but also draw out his turns incredibly. He seems better at weight distribution than occy. Poor old Leo finally won a heat and ran into Jordy hitting his straps. Jordy always seems to have a couple of funky heats at j bay but he's...

Re: J-Bay Pro 2017

Better lines than most of them draw on their thrusters. by "better" I suspect you mean more relatable. J-Bay is a simple sorta wave in some ways but it is a bit of a conundrum for the judging system, hell we have been here before, not re-hashing that one. But the normal question asked of CT pros, i...
