Tom Curren is awesome. Watch him in Glass Love with his Dad Pat and you'll understand where he's coming from a bit. If you come across a surfer that isn't a tad eccentric, don't trust them.

Side note: the scene in NZ with that board being ridden and Pat Currens face briefly ghosting into the screen is awesome.

Tom is completely awesome. It does not mean he is not mad

You all seem to consider madness to be some sort of social declension or embarrassment. It is not. Not in surfing terms. It is a high honour.

Anyway bombs away for two to three days now. Sp shut the fcuk up or surf.

I agree. What sane person would willingly and repeatedly subject his mind and body to such torture. At best a sick and serious masochist

We the fans want to see them mowed down by triple overhead clean up sets!!

Was out Newport too early. But way too big for me. Got caught on the way out by the biggest set I’d ever stared down. Desperately tried not to panic, bailed and dived deep, deep, praying for my legrope. And again. And again. Then thankfully the 4th broke far enough out for me to cop the whitewash and get washed in. Was far from the biggest flogging I’ve copped but the sheer size of those waves.... heart quickens thinking about it!

After the last two posts I'm a bit embarrassed to record my surf this morning in 2 to 3 foot (just overhead, OK Iggy?). But it was pleasant. :-o
Just me and 50 of my new best friends, thanks to Robbie Sherwell telling all and sundry on last night's surf report that Moffat would have a few this morning.
We get rid of the camera and Sherwell takes over on live local TV. :(
