Reckon there isn't ONLY one way to win the world title. You'd have to say that consistency and strength are the major factors through the year. If you look at last year as a whole, Fanning and Parko were probably the best surfers on tour. But they both had a bad middle-bit. No consistency. Even Slat...

Sean Wilde in Mona Vale is doing some nice quad fish. He's more known for his fwd thinking approach to longboards (no fins boards, winged boards etc etc), but his retro style boards apparently go really well.

I've got a little 5'6" Quad on order from him now.

Josh Kerrs Mad Hail Mary

If you weren't able to watch the semi final of the quiky on the Gold Coast between Mick Fanning and Josh Kerr, make sure you check this out. Kerrsy's Hail Mary backwards somersault thingo on his last turn of the heat - probably the turn of the contest. Slater's reckoning it's the freakiest turn he's...

Surf reporting isn't worth the paper it isn't written on ~ whether it be done on the net, in the newspaper, on TV, on the radio, or by mobile or text message.... The daily synoptic chart and a barometer is plenty Yeah, but it's nice to look at the pics and read Dons quirky comments anyway. Live in ...

I moved from Sydney to east coast of South Africa, north of Durban when I was kid - 1984. Started surfing, and got perfect waves everyday for 15years. Everything perfect when you're a grom. 22years later, and there's nothing better for me than heavy on-shorey slop... Point being that prevailing cond...

Mark Richards. Great service, Mark takes the time to understand your needs and wants. His boards have a great glass job making them very durable. And they perform precisely as described. I'll be back for another. You got that right Walrus - you could back a semitrailor over my MR sinlge fin, and yo...

Hurley owned by Nike. What next? Yeah, it's a bit sick. Truth is that all the little guys are going to take the strain of the big brands, and we're going to have to resort to wearing that sh__t quiky logo all over our chests, or shop more at vinnies. Quiky bought Surfection recently (last year), and...

Used to live overseas - South Africa. Lot's more boogers there. Mates who competed against Mike Stewart and those other top guys. Those bodyboarders were good at their game and got respect for being good at it. Not too many good bodyboarders in Sydney that I've seen. Any of you know any good boogy b...

WAVE QUALITY. It's well known that developments that are right on the coast have a severe affect on the quality of banks forming. One thing that Longy has is a lot of flat ground immediately inland from it. This means the wind and dunes work together to make those even banks that Longy - The Pole of...

I hate wetsuits. But in my limited experience of them - I've bought 2 very bottom of the line wetties. Both long arm, short legs. RC elasto and a Bong el-cheapo. That's 5 years of 'good enough for sydney' warmth for a grand total of about $320. They both fit well with good stretch and flex. Never ha...

As you dip your head and arch your back to go under the broken wave, push your board out in front of you to allow as much of the waves power to go between you and the board. That way there's a bit of leverage from your wrists and the tail can move with the power. Your arms are more streamlined so do...

Adding to above: Last week a fellow dropped in on me at DeeWhy. I let it go - he wasn't a great surfer probably a bit uneasy in the 5ft or so. 2 waves later he drops in on my surfing mate, falls off, and put the nose of his board through the bottom of my mates main board.
