Re: Is this a good surfboard deal?

Well what a breath of fcuking fresh air you are. :D Sarcasm? You actually have me confused. Ageed now just saying, my old board's a paddler glad to lend Yes, we have become somewhat sidetracked. 'Boo, you will find, as you go on in life, as you step up, very often, you step in it. Henceforth, you a...

Re: The Surf Helmet Discussion

I've even tried to wear a hat in the surf for protection from the sun during middle of the day sessions. Even find them uncomfortable so generally don't. Same, got an apparently good one, but it was shit to duck-dive in. I do wear a hood in winter though. Don't like it as gives disengaged feeling, ...

Re: Is this a good surfboard deal?

Accepted. I don't like how it reads myself so I wear the criticism without problem. Hence, the target avatar. I know I can be my own worst enemy. Sincerely hope longyfreshy gets the most out of her injured knee and surfing.

Re: Is this a good surfboard deal?

Swvic, you can stay. Though I don't know how I became the gatekeeper or Daryl's translator? Thanks, mate. Will try my best to stay on the straight and narrow. Offy's post gives some (sort of) explanation and the quote below might also assist. Swvic, you joined in 2011 and you still don't know anyth...

Re: The Surf Helmet Discussion

If memory serves me well, I think NCs li'l' bro' wore one for a time after a head injury. I briefly wore a mate's Gath to see how it felt and didn't like it. Duck diving was a real issue and I thought a heavy go down might increase risk of neck/spine injury because the helmeted head had greater resi...

Re: Is this a good surfboard deal?

Thanks for being so gracious and good luck with it all.

Perhaps, given my sincere contrition, alakaboo might think it ok for me to stay in the forum?

Re: Is this a good surfboard deal?

Are you for real? You joined RS in 2006 and still you need such advice. Unless you're very very young, you have not learned enough and should consider alternative recreational pursuits.

Re: Building lung capacity - advice needed

Unfortunately no. Working right through. Not even excepted are those sacrosanct days, although at work very briefly. Good bit is that crowds always smaller down my way, but shit I miss some of the waves over there. Beachies from Portsea to the Schank, previously mentioned waves at Flinders and sever...

Re: Boardies guide

Took 2 pairs to the tropics this past winter - no rash. Pair 1; Balin - knee length thick cotton type, but didn't notice any hindrance to moving which might be due to the 4/3 wettie required for vicco winters? Pair 2; Rip Curl nylony stuff, shorter leg and cheap because old stock. I think some are m...

There were a few Morn Pen crew who went to G land with Mick Pierce years back. Heaps of boards broken, but none of Mick's. Not heavy boards either. 5 yrs easy, Hatchy. Was/is making boards from his house? Dundas St Rye between shops and Rye car park. Could do alot worse. One of the best tube riders ...
