'Tis very similar, with similar, even more immediate results -- rear away from the drop and you'll eat it horribly. Gravity wants you to take the drop! No point avoiding it, even though our initial instincts usually tell us to. You know that feeling when you're at the edge of a cliff and your self p...

besides; Glysergic Urichrome doesn't have the latent properties to have any effect on floci adourours (the upper sheath of skin molecules) - I would have thought that this was common knowledge at Newport laz (BE) Oh, I knew that ... we have a special Chemistry column in the Newport Plus newsletter ...

It's not a particularly Hawaiian tradition. Think it's got more to do with the Viking thing, the waterborne funeral. Looked into this once and the first overt version I could find was the one Filth mentions in Puberty Blues, the 1978 Aussie coming of age movie. A kid ODs and his mates take his board...

That's it! Let's all now piss on Larry to see what effect the Glycergic Urichrome will have on his perverted flesh.

What I'd like to know is: why? Why would urine damage neoprene? You bastards sent me looking for reasons and I've found no direct link between piss and the breaking down of chloroprene-based synthetic rubber. I personally would hate to be robbed of the undeniably pleasant sensation of a bladder reli...

Had a super fun hour last night (Sunday) at the Pool at Newport when the swell kicked, the normally disgracefully fat piece of Shit was actually opening up and roaring. Good solid six to eight. Cursed the sun as it set, the pretentious bastard of a thing, how dare it cut short the fun. You know it w...

Hmm not sure about that though the fin looks like it's in the right place for one of those mid to late 70s Wades or G&Ss. Might be one of Tom's actually -- I seem to remember Kay on one of his second handers. The girls who started surfing at that point in Aussie surfing history were a special breed ...

Andy Irons, Joel Parkinson, Mick Fanning ... these are not short people. Nor are they particularly lightweight. In fact, many top surfers these days are significantly taller and heavier than the top pros of the 1980s and early 90s. And many of 'em ride boards with a fair bit more foam than you'd thi...

my point was sometimes you have to lean back and turn ASAP or else your nose will go under. you have no other choice. you cant lean forward first or youll eat it. Nay, Refrusloi, you do not have to lean back. What you gotta do on a late drop is SET THE FRONT RAIL. The rocker and outline curve in th...

Hurray for Kay! Nee Jarman! One of my favourite humans in the world. She ripped the Peak even before they made Roxy gear! You're a lucky bloke Platty, even if she does drop in on ya.

Re: NC, what about contacting the surfpark guys

NC, what about an article on the www.surfpark.com guys. I only ask cause I think you would have the contacts to get a free trip there. Even I would buy a surf mag (well, I would borrow one) if I could read an analysis of a surfpark's potential. Well Filth I may just force you into reading one of th...

I suspect many hardcore surfers are somewhat engaged in an affair of sorts with the ocean, and may even feel comfortable leading a double life -- spouse over here, surf over there -- for similar emotional reasons as people have conventional affairs. I wonder if this added to the cruelty of your ex-b...
