Brendo you're a bit sensitive on this issue, you arc up every time.

I've never been in Oz because of a lack of time and because it is a low probability poor value (for money) proposition.
I've done most of my riding by working for a season or tacked onto family holidays where I was already in the region so the travel cost was minimal. In my case it isn't elitism, just rationality.

And as a fairly experienced and capable boarder, I agree with Legion. On technical terrain he'd leave me for dead. There are physiological advantages to being symmetrical and forward facing. It's not elitism, it is science.

If I get the chance to spend a decent chunk of time on snow again I'm going to learn to ski.

And I realise you like the park and pipe, but then the valid comparison is with skating. The skill is in the air not on the snow.

Well I am not that much of a ski kook. I just like to ski! I don't want to surf here, I do plenty of that everywhere else. Not everything is about being fantastic.

As far as Kuta in Japan goes, I am not seeing that much of it up here at all, maybe this is not the peak part of the year, but it's not that crowded and there don't seem to be many yobbos. I am doing this to spend time with my son and that's working out fine.


Everyones a fxxxxxkn expert aye Nick, especially Steve from his slow internet connection in lennox head.

why did you choose to go to kuta in the snow?

Hawaii was work, this is play, it was planned some time ago - the trips are coincidentally close.

Anyway surfed the hell out of it today, tree runs off the HIrafu midsection were sick! there's a good bogan word for ya.

Fuck all that shit ... just tell me why I should delay my turns. I mean, sometimes I postpone them all together, so this delaying thing sounds kind of interesting.

Used to be a grass skiing joint just behind here once upon a time.

I hope wavepools go the way of grass skiing.

Jackson Hole looks pretty tits here and these snowboarders don't seem to have too much trouble with some technical lines.

But yeah, sure, snowboarding sucks on piste and moguls. Ski that shitt.
If you grow up in Europe you'd be mad not to ski.

It's astonishing. Anyone (still!!) unable to understand it should call it quits, sell their quiver and take up golf instead.


So far more chance of me quitting the job and doing more surfing.

A mate was talking of getting a split-board the other day. Had nfi what he was on about until he showed me a photo. Why not do both?

I don't ski or board. Went boarding once and had an empty mountain (Falls Creek) with with dry powder for three days. Fun as. Thought I'd get right into it, but never did

Back to surfing; I picked up a new twin fin on the w'end. Haven't ridden it yet
