Re: Just general surfing stuff

I hadn't seen this clip of Steph Gilmore surfing Malibu. Very good.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Apparently, pre-1971, there was a popular left-hander at Kirra. Stu Nettle said just about all of the old Kirra surfing photos he's found are of the left. Bob McTavish said in one of his books that he somewhat missed that left. It was round about where Coolangatta Creek comes out. https://i.imgur.co...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Fanno and Parko together at Kirra, perhaps today. How did Fanno make it out of that modest-sized tube? Not as easy as he makes it look.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

So meteorologists, why did the swell drop in the evening at the Ox?

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Fcuk! I just got a crazy board shaped 9'8" x 20.5" x 3.5" Christenson off a Twig file, low entry to foiled vee bottom pintail quad. Chris lives the classic gypsy shaper's life, orders collect at various points on the globe, he comes into town and tunes in with the machine etc, finish shapes a pile ...

Carvers are great boards IMHO, a 7'7 or 7'11 would suit you well MM
MM, what I think Cranked is saying is that you might need to go a little easier on the pie floaters before the 7’6” is a feasible option.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I like Newcastle. My father grew up there. But, I must say, Newcastle Beach has always lacked charm for me. I do love Nobbys Beach just around the corner.

There's no shortage of snow where my mate is skiing in Japan, that's going by the photo taken from his room today.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Fanno's Jew comment was put way out of context and was a pointed putdown of Chas Smith and not remotely intended as a racist slur against the Jewish people. He called Chas a “fcccckn jew”. I think you must be trolling. As I understand it, the context was. 'Fcuking Jew' was a standard Aussie express...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Is the mal revival mainly due to:
the increasing average age of surfers
the increasing average age of when people start surfing
and a little bit of hipster retro thrown in?
