Re: Kelly's wave.

So does a perfect wave improve your surfing ..... or does growing up in mushy E coast USA do the trick .
Damn... it looks good .

Re: Where did you not surf because of sharks? (including the ones in your head)

Wildcoast/Transkei early 80's ... planned to surf Ntlonyane and a couple other empty right points off river mouths ....but total deserted , murky sharky vibes , winter sardine run on the go , kite fishermen off the point pulling Johnny's .... perhaps just goofed-ness and paranoia from the local crop...

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

In South Africa they have "shark spotters " at a few beaches who fly different coloured flags to signal clear vis no sharks , bad vis no sharks or , shark spotted ! Heard someone on radio suggest using drones with image detectors that could pick out potential shark presence ? Sounds logical to me . ...

Re: Flinders Island is now Lord Howe Island

Flew over Flinders in December . Saw really good looking surf set up (mainly long righthander but possibly decent left off the other side of it ) , and unreal beaches and coves and small islands/rock outcrops etc .... fishing must be just too good ! .... put it on the bucket list . Anyway , Lord How...

Re: Wooden Handboards

I really think hand-boards are a waste . Can't swim with them , don't feel right . Too much resistance etc . Even watching people use them ....they're never the best bodysurfers ! Use your hand and shoulder and whole body length moulded and scissored legs in the pocket is far better than trying to h...

Re: Roys bank balance

Wow.... well done Roy . 3-) Since reading about one of his boards a long while back that he wanted a unique price relating to a cosmic vibration or mathematical indivisible number or something really weird .... (it was over $1.3m anyway and there were no "0"'s in the number ) I always thought he's g...

Yes . I found it's easier to check don weather/real surf if it's running or when it's likely to run ..... Rather than the official site !!??!?!

Re: Coffs Harbour artificial reef plans in limbo

Yeah look I don't know if it's fcuken dawned on anyone but there's an insane number of unridden waves breaking in Australia all the fcuken time. They're not exactly a scarce resource except at maybe a dozen or so famous and grossly overcrowded locations. Drive 20 mins from most of those locations a...
