Re: Just general surfing stuff

You australians will be dismayed to hear that UK Sport has partially relaxed its draconian payment-by-results policy and is giving British surfing a couple of hundred gees in readiness for Olympic year. 2020 may come too early but expect a flotilla of overfed public schoolboys to take 2024 by storm,...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Woke up for a dawny at the Point with my wife. There were van loads of euros hanging in the car park checking Magic Seaweed, which had majestically called , I dunno, seven and a half feet or something. Maybe 9 feet. Surf Forecast had said 2 thousand kilojoules. It was one foot rock break. pretty mu...

Just to go back to the great Forecasting Debate Magic Seaweed is giving Lennox Head 5 stars for Sunday and calling it 8.5ft.

Surf forecast (god help me please, it was just a quick squizz) is right on board with a mighty 2733 Kj call.

Re: Mentawai quiver.

Seems like a fair old trek for sub-Maldivian 2-3 ft. No wonder you spent most of your time sinking piss

Yeah well, from my (mercifully brief) encounters with Australians in the line-up,

Did you have a bad experience Godsave?

In the Maldives?

Come on, come clean.
There's no need to get all defensive, I didn't mean you. I'm sure you're a delight to surf with

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Yeah well, from my (mercifully brief) encounters with Australians in the line-up, this is pretty common among your low intermediate to reasonably competent surfers typically accompanied with a taciturn sense of entitlement, so I wouldn't get on your high horses about other nationalities. That may be...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Very hard to not have aggressive behaviours play out in front of witnesses on tbe east coast of Australia. And i still feel very squeamish about having this issue directly conflated with domestic violence. Violence, aggression and territoriality in surfing have been present for a long time, maybe s...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I think the last time I saw any abuse in the water was when the local fat bully (rightly) gave me a bollocking for ditching my board in front of him instead of duckdiving. That was 1986

Re: Just general surfing stuff

If the incidents in Nick's article occurred as reported (and we have no reason to suspect they didn't) then they were pretty clearly triggered by the men involved being unable to cope with women in the lineup ("fuschia chick", "why are you chicks even in the surf" etc etc). It's impossible to specul...
