I have no doubt that a couple of calls could raise mutiples of the $250,000 (NC for instance is awash with funds and is a dear and close friend) - and despite his suggestion that the Venture would be better placed far away, I I do detect a burgeoning interest there. Count me in, sir! I smell a Glob...

I used to want to own the third house south of the walkway at sth Newport -- timber painted deep grey with a reddish roof, set a bit back on the block. But don't really care any more, I don't have $5 million anyway, and I'd just stare out the window all day waiting for the wind to switch. Happy almo...

Larry, perhaps usiong the clout that would no doubt accompany your monumental Investment, you could direct the School to the coastal area between Bangalley and Careel Heads, it's an ideal ski training area.

Probably best just not to surf where large aggressive sharks are known to hang out. This is a simpler solution than paying $600 for a whacking great black thing of dubious power, strapping it to your right thigh, then leaping into a Nth Coast rivermouth at dusk. Bluebottle Shield, that's what I wann...

If you define a scientific theory as one with predictive value, then you are absolutely right. The point I'd like to make is that it is the christian worldview that provided the foundation for scientific theory: that is, that the world follows rational rules because it had a rational creator.

Karma Schmarma, it's just the planet being itself. Humans get in the way and suddenly it's ALL ABOUT US. Not it's not. It's like the farcical "theory" of Intelligent Design -- just another way of putting human behaviour at the centre of things. We're not even a flea on the elephant's arsehole of the...

A few years ago I was surfing a pathetic little day at Rocky Pt in Hawaii, riding too big a board to keep my legs for Sunset. Fell off doing a floater, the board went straight down and stuck nose first into the sand, my right leg flipped over and landed directly on the back fin. The fin cut clean th...

prepare, you could get a board made wider and flatter-rockered to float and run better in small surf. But scroopy's right, it's gonna come down to technique and wave knowledge. I see a lot of surfers getting on Fish these days, hoping for a magic bullet. They float along OK, but in the end they're h...

Well, Wobbo, hope your research is now completed. The conclusions, based on the thread's evidence: a) Many experienced surfers think bodyboarding is farcical, believing it to be too easy, and thus morally inferior to standup surfing. b) Many bodyboarders resent this stance, but have little in the wa...
