Or the 1.2 billion people who speak a Chinese dialect, or anyone who has ever had a Chinese friend, or finished high school.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Fascinatingly the Japanese Govt has asked the world to begin addressing Japanese people in the home-grown manner, ie surname first, named name last Does this mean the World Surf League has to now call Kanoa Igarashi, Igarashi Kanoa? My god I hope so. Chinese is like this but no one notices. There's...

Re: Stringerless epoxy crease repair

Just buy the fcuking thing then.

It'll snap at the edge of the repair, but you'll no doubt have some fun before it does.

Re: Stringerless epoxy crease repair

A stringerless EPS (epoxy is the resin not the foam) has all the strength in the sandwich/outer glass, particularly the rails. It'll never be the same, regardless of the quality of the repair. It might be ok, but there's a reason it's cheap, and for sale. I assume you mean this board https://i.ebayi...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I can't believe how bad that analogy is beanpole.
They're both wet I guess.

Duck probably isn't legal to drive until mid afternoon so surfing locally is best for everyone.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

It was a surprise to me too.
They were slow but fairly regular easterly sets, flatness in between.

There's some incredible sand there at the moment.

Re: Momentum Generation

Steve I'm not quite sure how to say this. I like your writing, always have, even when you're obviously phoning it in, deep in a rd3 recap on the Euro leg. Helped send you to Tahiti and think this is one of the best pieces of surf writing I've read. https://www.swellnet.com/news/swellnet-dispatch/201...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Had an awesome surf in the outer bays at Noosa. Low and genial crowd, whistle clean, 2-3 foot. Quad egg, 1960s Noosa template, wood skins, modern contours. Ran some smaller fins all round (hand foiled glass) and it was a revelation. Got 3 absolute crackers. One top 20 at least, if not top 10. 8 or 9...

Re: Sunny Garcia

Yeah I only knew because I did the same, but not from Stab.

The car crash was in 2016, so 3 years ago.

I know it's not really the time, but the outlines of Sunny's boards in some of the images in the tribute articles look so good.

Re: Bells Beach

Godsave, as a member of team spectrum I feel your pain, although that probably disqualifies me. One thing I've learnt while doing beach surveys is that people want very different things from their beach experience. A substantial minority, 30% or so of those at metropolitan beaches, say they would ON...
