Re: Where did you surf today ?

Surfed a south corner (semi point) in what started out absolutely clean, great waves, just under head high. Within an hour the tide come in with the new swell and picked up heaps and was hitting the bank better (seen a couple while doing the run around that were double overhead). Some of the waves w...

Re: Derek Hynd finless at chunky J Bay

I saw that Ryan Burch guy surfing finless in San Diego a few times...it blew me away!!!
When he nails those 360/floaters over lip, it looks so seamless. Amazing to watch.

Re: costs effecting choice of design ???

Mark, After having a disposable income for most of my life til a few years ago, my whole mind set has changed. I will only stray a little from what I know works for me...as just can't afford to have shit boards, as I know I will be stuck with em for a couple of years. And that scares me!! Cheers Ben...

Re: Tips for Mexico

Cool, thanks guys. Smitsonian will be on for my day off in DC and GC on the cards in Vegas.

Any hints with the Californian trip, secifically where to see/stay. It all seems expensive to stay at, especialy LA and Orange county.

Re: Quadfather Project Board....

We got the bump in swell down the coast as well, so would have hit there for sure. Without hopefully causing a huge overflow of emotion from the locals there, cause it's a NE swell head to the Tuncurry breakwall for most size. Its also got decent banks at the moment.

Where up North are you heading?
I am based in Newie, but heading up the coast a couple of times through early jan..South west Rocks, Seal Rocks, Port Maq etc.
Let me know when you come past Newie, drop in for a wave and a beer. Would like a burl on the QF.
Cheers Ben

Re: Sets to 50 feet on outer reefs Monday....

OK guys, so where is the best place to get the stream for the pipe event? Went to Billabongs' site but they are asking to sign up first? I'm OK with that, if that is the best place to stream the live action from.
Cheers Ben
