Re: Just general surfing stuff

Well, we had an interesting meeting at the airport with one of the Free West Papua guys. He travelled around, raising awareness and had spent some time in Byron. He flew into Vanimo, met up with a colleague and they were about to drive a few hours north and he was then going to walk 5 days through t...

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

I tried a mates 7'0 CMP softboard at the point a couple of months back. Thick as, but loads of fun. Just over 200 $$, with a slick bottom. Went well. Seen Ace Buchan around on those Catch Boards too - of course he made it look the goods.

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

There was another incident at Avoca this afternoon - young doctor got bit on the shoulder - reported as a minor incident. Happened off the lagoon - not sure if it’s open at the moment, Terrigal lagoon is open. A 3m white was spotted around the area afterward, but I doubt it was the same animal.

Re: Inguinal hernia, anyone had surgery?

It's amazing how far surgery has come in such a short time. One of my work colleagues had some keyhole heart surgery done, and was back at work within the week!

Good news for you Beery

Thanks Rustt. If it doesn't disappear within a couple of weeks I'll go see a doc or physio and take it from there.

Shoulder tear?

Paddling back out on a small day, and felt my shoulder kind of give. The symptom appears in the pull of the stroke and goes into the pectoral muscle. Essentially I'm unable to weight bear. Extending the arm for the catch is no issue. I gave it 2 days rest, after I could do my usual duties and not no...

Re: Geoff McCoy Surfboards Collectors Corner

Gave the zots a good try in decent bali surf, twice a day for a week. One good 2' wave at temples, otherwise the worst boards ive ever ridden. Once they were converted to quads they instantly became candidates for the best boards ive ridden. Good for 1'-6', possibly to 8' (I'll swap between the 7' ...

They're collaborating on some interesting boards. One of the first collab boards was Cheynes Bells board - originally shaped by Terry Fitz, with the real hull front end.

No comment on the American saga. When he's in this mode he just isn't capable of putting it in such a reasonable manner surffoils . He's antagonistic, alienating and opinionated - somewhat charismatic....some folks lap it up. He's definitely a character! He does leave a gap in the market though when...
