Oh, thanks Hatchie. I never noticed having lead such a sheltered life.
So that's like three feet?

I had a teacher back in the mid 80’s in high school who was our industrial arts teacher and all round cool dude. His name was Keith Porter and he rode a ski. Always being dismissive of goat boaters at the time we viewed his choice of craft with amusement.
When we started surfing as a school sport he was our teacher. He blew everyone’s minds as he proceeded to do vertical reo’s and the odd air on his ski. I went from suspicion to idolatry very quickly. This guy was doing more on a wave than most surfers could at the time.
He took me out to Voodoo and Shark Island and had total respect from all the locals.
If a goat boater can pull into barrels at the Island and Vooey and make them like he did then hats off.

I often wondered what happened to Keith because he had a lot to do with how I turned out as a person.

Yes mongpole. It appears to be a punchy 3-4 foot swell.

we surfed the south side of sandon point a lot when we were grommets, it was called the bombie then i don't know about now seems like names change every time i go back, and there were always a few dudes on wave skis and the odd windboarder and i remember one guy in particular used to charge and rip it up but he seemed to hate us young surfers and always seemed to be shouting at us and cursing us as he paddled past. i wonder what the problem was.

there was an Industrial technology Teacher Keith Porter at St John Bosco College until around 2016 (having been there for 'over 25 years'); then he moved to be Industry Partnerships Manager at La Salle Catholic College

So could be the same guy

Your Pyzel ghost review was a good read Steve. Better then the usual "yeah it was fun" dross that usually gets served up.

Yep, second that. Although it shamed me into realising I shouldn’t bother buying one. Truth hurts I guess.

trust me. there's nothing more satisfying than wanking out a load into the dry dust while the surrounding forest and wildlife burn to the ground around you.

That was brilliant Steve, you're a wizard with the pen. Will you be taking it to the Mentawais?

Cheers mate. It would be a massive coincidence if there were two Keith Porters teaching IA in the Shire.
