Re: Pipe Masters 2017

Just caught up with an old mate. Had his surfing trip to the Telos cancelled when an old man orangutan in Sumatra broke a branch off a tree and speared it at him. Almost cut his arm off. wow ... of all the dangers out there on remote surfing trips, near-fatal orangutang attack is something I've nev...

Re: Best softboard to use to teach kids ???

The ocean and earth ones the surf schools use aren't cheap but they feel super durable and high quality. I reckon all our family could use the 7'0". Got a cheapo one from target for my daughter. It's ok for the price, it's more for her to learn paddling onto waves. Once she gets that the wife's epox...

But failed to pass their tests at first. Man im so sore. And totally smacked out. Had 12mg of oxys fed in IV along w...

Re: Just general surfing stuf

Oh! So, fins do make a big difference. :lol: yeah, sure. but not to people who go on about them on the Internet Yeah, but it is confusing. They are just seeking some clarity, which for weekend surfers does not seem to be easily available. Nick, if you wrote a longer piece on basic fin principles (y...

All deadline long, the surf seemed to pump, but i was running around, away from it. murphy's law. Expand that over a few year period and you might be close to weekend war...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Fiji and Trestles gone from the tour. Bali in. Only the wavepool in the US. Obviously the US is no longer a market. Actually maybe that's the plan, focus on the pool. Get those fat ass Americans sitting in a stadium with gallon sized cokes and popcorn. Streamed live with celebrity appearances. Mayb...

Re: Kelly's wave.

Why don't the Ziffs just go out and buy surf breaks and do the same as the above with them. For instance I'm sure they could buy the whole of Uluwatu for less than a hundred million (50 million in payoffs, the rest to the current owners). Gragagan for half that. Desert point a quarter. Small change...
