You're essentially wearing salt-encrusted used condoms and you're surprised they don't smell great?

aj I found the one downside to those boots. I'd read some stuff saying they stink. It's true. They are getting worse. They currently smell like sewer pits from the depths of hell. I dry them properly each time. Doesn't help. I even bought some special boot hangers. Doesn't help. I don't rinse them in fresh water. I doubt it would help. But that's a minor point. I still will wear them and buy only them because they are ridiculously good compared to the alternatives.
Just wash 'em in very warm water with a little bit of detergent every now and then. The warm water will dissolve the oils and shit that provide breeding grounds for bacteria and thus cause the stink.

The artificial reef at Palm Beach looking pretty promising, is this one of the best examples to date of an AF creating half decent waves??

It's not a particularly difficult thing to build an artificial reef.
Paying for it and getting it approved without modification is another matter.
This one was 18+ million, and that's leaving a lot off the balance sheet.
It was nearly abandoned in favour of groynes a few times. If the council rates revenue wasn't on a tear and it wasn't in front of some rich and influential donors, this one wouldn't have been built either.

$18 mil for a load of rocks to be strategically placed a 100 meters offshore.

you'd reckon the Chinese could do it cheaper.

ha ha according to reports, China is spending over $120 million building six wave pools modelled on the KSWC, one of which is done and running.

Yeah and all those Chinese surfers who can jump in and get slotted ASAP. Then head to Indo, Australia etc..to flex their new found skills in the ocean.
