Far out. Very sad news. Ginge had a similar experience with a better outcome recently according to the paper.

55 I think I read.
And yeah, I surf with a mate who's just a month younger than I am at 72.
He's had the heart ops and his specialist says, your heart is a muscle. Keep exercising it. Keep surfing.

Dr crabmeat told me a similar thing about a different muscle, although I found the Currumbin dunnies a weird place for our consultation.

Far out. I have seen so many crossover shapes by mainstream manufacturers lately. Anyone ridden any of these things?
I think Nick needs to do a soft board review.

I have, they are shit.

They get better if you stick real fins in em, which should tell you what they're like. ie if you made the rest of em real, they'd be way better.

Yes, well of course that's right. However there are degrees of shitiness. Seem to be selling like hot cakes around the Eastern Suburbs.

Surf between the flags, Bro. Half the crew is on those things.

There's lots of them around in Perth too and most aren't ridden by learners.

Surfing between the flags. Don’t get that unless you’re a complete twit or under 8
