Re: that wetsuit discussion...

Huh! I'd just cut it off. The narrow flap which runs up inside the zipper does the job well enough. Well yes Trev...but that's a pretty drastic solution to a design feature. Surely someone thought the big flappy elephants foreskin might need a bit of finessing. Yeah, Fcuking laces :roll: Don't get ...

Junky surf at mid tide Tama. More fun than I expected but the rip was strong and my shoulders still sore.

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

Okay.....my current back zip...and the Billabong I recently tried on..thanks Yuke...have a flap that goes across the shoulders. To zip the back up you have to wrangle this thing into a position where you can keep it clear of the zipper or it will jam. This is done by getting one arm in, then reachin...

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

Back zips are just way too hard to get into and out of, you need the simplicity and the joy of the longjohn and front zip long sleeve top combination for real ease of access. I was going to respond to this derogatively. Then I realised you are probably taking the piss. If you aren't flexible enough...

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

They have to do something about the flap they put in lots of back zips these days. Was going to buy a new bong one a while ago but the flap put me off.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Highlight surf wise last year was Fiji. Low point was probably snapping the rental there too. Got plenty of waves at Crescent last week but Boxing Day Arvo was the best. I got one that opened up properly and allowed a speed nose ride from the take off to the clubhouse rather than your regular tackin...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I put it down to bulldozing the gutters with sand. They did the same thing a few years ago. Pray for a new season of Bondi Rescue. I'm actually still sore from too much surf up the coast despite certain grumpy wowser killjoys predictions. Muscles feel ready for more but my shoulders playing up and I...

Re: Good month for Baja Sur - Pacific West Coast

I generally thought most of Baja was light point surf....apart from Todos Santos of course. Scorpion Bay features in a few mal movies.

Bronte. Went down for a swim and decided to get my board. Became increasingly crowded as the tide dropped.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Surfed Tuncurry Breakwater this morning. Relatively crowded and the tide was getting a bit low. A bit crunchy for this old stager. Surfed it yesterday with about four people. Got a few. Crescent had waves most days. Late afternoon Boxing Day was the best. Surfed Backside of Plomer which had goodish ...
