If you wanna make your own voices heard, the best way is to go to the National Offshore Petroleum Safety and Environmental Management Authority's website and follow the link to where you can register your thoughts on the environmental plan filed by Equinor.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Hey does anyone know anybody in Norway? The Norwegian government's energy company Statoil, using a subsidiary known as Equinor, has announced its intention to begin exploration oil drilling in the Great Australian Bight within six weeks.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I get worried when Nick says it will look like a full on spot. What’s your forecast for NSW, Nick? 8 - 10 foot from the north east? North of Coffs, Friday 4'+ from the east and NE, distinctly different swells; Saturday building swells from NE and ESE to 4-6'+; Sunday NE swell declining, more powerf...

Re: The Good Luck A Number One McCoy Thread

I always thought McCoys backfoot focus inspired Simon to develop the thruster. Yeah well as above, the no-nose was an essential piece of the puzzle. Simon's always also claimed McTavish's wide vee bottoms as an early bit of something in his head which carried him toward that outline. It's the core ...

Re: The Good Luck A Number One McCoy Thread

You've got to hand it to Cheyne though riding those Fcuking things in solid waves. He isn't. The board he won Bells on in 1984 was made by Terry Fitzgerald. The boards he is riding in the photos above were made by Glen Minami. All of them are a far cry from those boggy wide tailed pieces of shit he...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Strong powering 5' plus rendered a bit groggy by backwash energy, fading to 3-4' later in the afternoon as the wind turned NNE. Beautiful afternoon though, wow.

just to drop the fcuken hammer again I've been on a transition surf movie bender and that seq of MP at Kirra on Morning of the Earth is still a complete jaw dropper.
