Re: Nth NSW sharks. Can they p!ss off already?

Your maths is wrong, duck. Well, technically your maths is right, but you don't know how to work out percentage change. You've worked out the new rate as a percentage of the old rate. Percentage change is: (New-old)/old * 100 It's (0.70-0.05)/0.70*100 = 0.65/0.70*100 Closer to 93% than 92%, but Nick...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Nick's explanation left out the massive dredging campaign that buried Kirra reef and dramatically changed the nearshore beach profile in Coolangatta bay, back in 1995-96 and 1998. And the bypass volume has tried to match the natural rate of sand transport since 2006, they just didn't do a great job ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

So true loof.
Hey, did I ever tell you about the time I rode my bike at 28km/h for almost 10 minutes?
Cadel Evans was in the group ride, he told me I was born to be a cyclist.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I didn't surf anywhere, and it was the first decent swell in years where I haven't even considered driving down to the coast. I realised, as I was checking the snow report for a place I won't visit for probably 5 years, that I've given up even the pretence of being a surfer. Realistically, I'm a sno...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

13s is actually fairly long period for the east coast.
7-9s is pretty standard north of Byron.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I know some Wegis. I'll check the pulse of public sentiment. I'm also part of a group that has been opposing oil drilling in the Bight for the last 3 years at least. Our board members have met with the federal environment Minister a few times to point out the flaws. I'll raise it again. BTW, 2 point...

Beans if you fly up, paddle out, and post footage of your set wave at Kirra, Iggy would have to quit the internets.

Re: General snow stuff

Nope, haven't been.
There's good snow in Iran too.

And my Serbian mate was telling me about his trip to Bosnia. Only 9 Euros for a day pass, but they have unexploded land mines and the occasional bear attack.

Jimmy I've got a mate who does aid work in Aceh.
He surfs, and has been trying to get me there for years. I can ask him for some info.

I saw a guy on a new Christenson get so rag-dolled on the rock-off on Sunday. Why do you think he is the best designer in the world Nick? He seems to be able to design and shape pretty much anything, from supergun paddle-in craft for Jaws etc (see Greg Long, numerous others) to classic Fish and lon...

Some are fairly under the radar, loofy wouldn't be happy for me to blow them up.

You'd also greatly benefit from speaking some Nihongo for some of them.

Re: General snow stuff

Had a great second week.
5 resorts, lots of snow.
A couple of the best powder runs I've had, and I've been pretty lucky in the past.

Definitely recommend having a car, despite having to dig it out and clear the snow off it a few times.
