Re: that wetsuit discussion...

Yeah, the flashbombs are good. That's what I'll get if Torquay don't have oneill's. I believe they have reinstated the back zip as an option. Must have realised there's plenty of old farts like me and unco tards like shearer in the market Hope life is good, you bulked up eating machine Backzip all ...

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

I was going to say. Like how do any of you manage to get out of bed in the mornings. "Oh God what are these shoe things with their unbearably complex 'laces'!" "Oh dear! I am likely to fall down the 'stairs'!" I was a bit like that after starting work here. My work boots were always elastic sided s...

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

Thanks, 'boo. Didn't get my steamer, but did order a short john and thermal vest. Combo deal was $200. $80 less than buying individually. Short john will turn my winter 3/2 into a 4.5/2. I'm hoping it works out ok. Even if it doesn't, as is will be ok for a couple of months when my knee comes good

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

I tried the 3/2 thing in winter through Vic. Went back to get a 4/3 for the following winter. Doesn't get you through the cold days when you sit and wait for extended periods. Yeah I know.

Yeah I know. Might mean very short surfs. I'll also have a hooded vest and booties. Trying to find a smooth skin hooded vest is proving extremely difficult.

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

Lost some weight, Grooter?

I'm the opposite, tempted to try getting through with a 3/2. Shoulder struggles to move 3 mm. Gotta be a back zip too. Exceedingly difficult to get out of a chest zip without help

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Slater still got barrelled when he dropped in on Parko. How good would Parko's have been if that didn't happen?

Thanks the time and effort to post that, steve. Always interested in Aboriginal history which always delivers a greater sense of what they, and we, lost

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Funny, as I often do, I surfed alone today. I have a club-based history and I loved it and all the surrounding aspects Nick and skip mentioned, but what I definitely don't need is validation from anywhere for my surfing experience
