Re: Where did you surf today ?

Teaching my kids to surf at the moment, and yesterday my 7yo paddled for, caught and rode a wave all the way to the sand.
My 8yo also got up for a few seconds.

Stoke levels are off the charts in out household.

That's a pretty sick backyard too.

Re: Galapagos.

Below age 7 most boats won't take them, except the big cruise ships.
Above 12 they are full price.

Give the audience what they want.

Dunno loof.
Ecuadorians have cute faces but the physique of a bar fridge so you'd probably be better off staying up top anyway.

Re: Galapagos.

If you have an interest in science it's amazing. Even if you don't, the scenery is great and the wildlife is totally unafraid and approaches you. I mean birds landing on you, sealions, marine iguanas and penguins and turtles playing with you while snorkeling. Tortoises and land iguanas walking acros...

Didn't try, wasn't a priority.
It was onshore and looked like the Rio pro most days.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I checked the surf from an Incan temple today, it was solid, maybe 8ft closeout beachbreaks and bigger offshore. There was a surfable looking reform inside one of the islands. fuschia knows how you would've got out there without a ski, and it is 12 degrees and full of petrochemical runoff. I never d...

Re: Kelly's wave.

Nick, how long before we get a breakaway surf competition run by surfers? Please don't tell me never. Ha the way these WSL changes are going down, you just never know what might happen. But honestly, mate, most pro surfers couldn't organise their way into a pie shop. They're pro surfers partly beca...

Re: Kelly's wave.

Webber might want to read up on the energy required to scale waves. Appears he has no idea of the way energy requirements increase with amplitude. His visitation figures are also laughably optimistic. Despite Steve saying Webber's selling out surfing, it looks like Greg's the one being taken for a r...
