Re: Where did you surf today ?

I'm trying to perfect the being-pushed-up-by-the-lip method, seen here at Sunset (first wave of the set) https://www.surfline.com/sessions/clips/5df03305f737aa6fd6cf7509 and also Rockies https://www.surfline.com/sessions/clips/5df5cc6723391f167a23c4a0 The idea is if you let the wave break on top of ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Oh and given the time you'd need to spend purely riding waves in order to reach your true potential skill level, I dunno if any surfer ever has done that -- got to his or her true potential.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

The combination of skills required and they way they have to chime together means that you will go through long periods of plateauing skill levels, then experience sudden jumps to the next plateau. These jumps will sometimes be triggered by an extraordinary surf or series of surfs, or a new board, b...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Windswell matters a hell of a lot, surf in 6-8 second interval wind swell for the first two years of your life and you've got a big jump on a lot of other surfers. You'll have just caught way more waves by then.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

can one of you know it all cnuts please tell me what the fcuk is a pop-up? I don't even know if I do a pop-up. ps: I think only about 5% of surf school grads keep surfing and many of those are done in about three years, you need a lot of stuff working for you if you're going to keep surfing and get ...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I have no interest in that stuff, maybe if I were selling a board of real value to someone who really wanted it, yeah

for instance: anyone wanna buy an authentic AB six channel hand shape? 6'3" round pin, complete with 80/20 AB fins.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I'll get 'em all together and post a pic with various dimensions etc. You''ll have to show up on the day or send an emissary though 'cause I'm not organising any transport. Plus. cash only or visible account transfer (ie you do it in front of me and I check my account for it)

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I don't wanna do the consignment thing, Sydney board shops don't move second hand boards. I don't mind spending a few hours basically giving boards away to people, it might be interesting! I've just never heard of anyone doing it. re braithy, I dunno what happened, the offer was there, he just had t...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I really need some advice, I have too many boards. I want to sell a bunch of 2nd handies. I'll sell 'em for almost nothing really, I just want to get them out of my head and into someone's hands who'll ride 'em a bit longer. I tried to give a board away here (to crabmeat) and nothing happened, it wa...

Re: Nth NSW sharks. Can they p!ss off already?

I think the Act mandates ongoing research etc. I dunno, I don't have issues with government funded shark research at all, we do need to know what is going on with the toothy buggers, I just find it irritating that you've gotta come across the results of the research the way you do, ie from a link on...
