Re: that wetsuit discussion...

Squeegees, wetsuits, condoms - basically anything with rubber is a problem for you.
Interesting.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Featured on Swellnet, this Tim Bonython clip of the recent big Cloudbreak swell is nuts and the best I have seen so far of that swell.

Re: Margaret River Pro 2018

It's odd that the judges seem to punish lack of variety on the forehand, but they will score repeated identical backhand off the lips all day every day.

Re: Keramas event

Timmy Patterson did describe Italo's Bells winning board.

“The victory board was his F-15 Italo Ferreira pro model
5'11 x 18.50 x 2.25 and 26 Liters in volume, round pin tail with Future tri fin set up. Board was P.U foam and glassed with poly resin.”

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I liked seeing Kelly at Cloudbreak without the fully shaved dome. He looked more remarkable paddling into big CB with his natural middle-aged male pattern baldness displayed. I'd like to see him let it grow till he got the full mad professor look going. He would look awesome as he fiddled with his w...

Wonky, a couple of swell trains apparently. Should be less wonky tomorrow when the other swell disappears.

Re: Rio Pro

Steve has taken to surfing in the nude. Maybe he's having some sort of breakdown.

would you apply the same logic to lance Armstrong Foamy?
That's cheating, like ball tampering. Very different.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I see no reason why surf journos should have reported on Andy's drug use. He wasn't trying to run the country or drive the school bus. He's a surfer. He surfs really well. That's the story. The public doesn't have a right to know his private life. The only perceived need to know is for the pleasures...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Steve, we are all selfish narcissists. That's the facticity :wink: of the human condition. But, the primary purpose of writing, directing and acting is to produce something for others to use. Not with surfing. It is pure self-indulgence. It's just a way of feeling good. Nothing wrong with that. But ...

Most have probably already seen it, but the article by Fiona Capp in Fairfax about the movie 'Breath' is insightful and very well-written.
