Wish I'd hung on to one of my old MPs :cry: I had a few including one of the last boards he ever shaped. It was probably one of very few multiple fin boards he made.

Its great to see people debating the meaning of existence but philosophy and religion intersect at odd angles.The surfs been pretty flat the last few days,yes?. Perhaps that explains why everyones debating religion Any religious group offers more than faith to its followers. It offers connections. P...

If there's a god of surfing its the god of the hunt. A primitive god who rewards the cunning and lucky. The one who is in charge of the weather and waves.His name is Huey isn't it :?:

I think the arguement for why tuflites cost so much goes like this: the costs of tooling up to make them, more labour intensive construction methods, internationally famous designs and the fact that you have a virtually ding free board that will retain its resale value. I bought one second hand a fe...

I remember seeing a similar incident earlier this year. It ended up with the guy screaming at his nemesis who was telling him to take it easy, then screaming at everyone in the general vicinity as a bunch of blowins. Hadn't seen much of him around the traps come to think of it Maybe he was just an o...

Gee, I don't know guys. How many posts are happening in the mal section right now? How many posts on nose riding can you make ? How can you argue a case for traditional style logging if you only talk to yourselves? I started fooling around with longboards myself about thirteen or fourteen years ago ...

I always had the impression from his ads that B McT designed fireballs specifically for beachbreak surfing. That partly explains why they have been so ridiculously popular. How many do you reckon he must have sold by now ? Raymond Gleave used to have his own model with McTavish but I always wondered...

One good one I had the misfortune to witness years ago was at Bondi of all places . A notorious local psycho ended up having a major blue with someone he knew on the beach on a crowded summers day. They ended up rolling around on the sand grappling each other while some woman ran around yelling at t...

Surfing Psychos

Surfing has always attracted more than its fair share of psychos. Some have been great surfers others have just been apprentice or fully fledges psychos. Usually the guy who turns up in the big car with the new board and can't surf isn't a psycho. He may be a dork but he is only unintentionally dang...

The number one problem with bodysurfers in the line up is that they usually haven't worked out everyone is going across the wave face rather than straight in or straight to the bottom like they are Forget about educating them about dropping in. They don't understand whats going on around them at all...

They are pretty close to banning tobacco smoking. Good luck if you think decriminalisation is around the corner :o

Do you think the addictive craving part of bonging on is more to do with nicotine withdrawl than the actual dope in the mix :?:

I still kind of miss my old 89 Magna Wagon. It was such a tank but you could chuck all your junk in it and not give a stuff about salt water damage, sand or bashing into things. Plus it was as cheap as chips. Your right though, Johnno about those 4x4 Vans. You still see them kicking around unlike ol...
