Re: Carissa’s claws Kai Lenny posted a day ago “Recently the way I have been able to step up my game to the next level is thanks to the modern hydrodynamic advancements from @minksystems.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

That is good news for you, Trev. Congrats! Kelly Slater. The last few years have perhaps tarnished the KS brand for some. But this year! Winning unlikely heats! On Tuesday, he is seen surfing on the Tweed Coast in Australia. On Thursday, he is in Brazil in crappy small waves winning his heat by out-...

This on the wall of a coffee shop in Ala Moana Shopping Centre. They gave me a filthy enough look while I was taking the pics. :oops: Could never have got close enough to nick it. :roll: http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/ll46/TrevG27/DSCF4696Large.jpg http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/ll46/TrevG2...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

On the other hand......Nick, unlike everyone else on here, rarely paddles out without knowing someone. Guess it's a novelty. It’s not. I’ve had many surfs like today, like bombing 6-10’ plus days here in Sydney by myself. This was the first time I experienced the feeling of it being a weird, feral ...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I was just applying similar caveats that are not unfairly applied to Filipe Toledo and Jordy Smith when greatest surfer assessments are made.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I was watching live, I reckon Steph’s kick stall gave me a stab of joy unmatched in my last 5 years of surf watching.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I did think that Nick’s statement “Steph Gilmore is head and shoulders the best Australian surfer today, maybe the best in the world” needed some pretty significant caveats. My observations from the peanut gallery. Steph has not developed any confidence in waves of consequence. She has no air game. ...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Passing thought. The current WSL seems full of young, trained, coached, sober, heat-winning (at least QS), hyper-performers. Kelly Slater. Ok, he’s not a contender. The fact that, at 47, in 2 and bit events, in small waves, he has not been the loser in 4 heats seems almost as remarkable as many of h...

Re: Bells Beach

Because context is important. Because, when you say, “Most of the surfing was simply awful”, it’s a bit like saying, I've been looking at those winning mud runner kilometre split times and I beat them at the local oval last Saturday just doing a few laps! It doesn’t help that, when you are paddling ...

Re: Bells Beach

I don't reckon GSTQ fully understands how difficult those conditions are to surf.
