Re: Midlengths

Cool, thanks guys Bro, I got a NPJ 6'10 2+1 midlength that goes really well in a lot of conditions that I don't want anymore. Bit battered and bruised but plenty of life in it. PM me if interested.. Hey thanks for that kind offer. Might be a bit on the small side for me unless it's over 3 '' thick!...

Re: Midlengths

Forget litres, just get around a 7’6 with a bit of foam out to the rails. Yep. Or even 8ft. Flat entry into medium rocker. Try and find an old Mctavish Carver (or new) or board with similar design features is my take. He still produces them so there would be a description on line. Yeah, but it kind...

Re: Midlengths

My long-lost interest in surfing might be making a comeback via a desire to get on something fat and fishy. I'm a little confused about the volume in litres that gets bandied about. Is there an equation to match the best volume for your height and weight? I'm 6'4'' and about 104kgs so it'd have to b...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I'm not sure you could call what I did today surfing. Last Sunday too big, today beyond tiny.

Re: skateboarding ...

My son is down at Meadowbank pretty much every waking moment when he's not at school. I'll be taking him down there again tonight - with my daughter riding her bike around the paths and me on my '86 retro board. I'll just stick to cruising; not way I'm getting in the bowl on that death machine!

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Had a quick surf yesterday morning at Cronulla for old time's sake as I was visiting Dad in Sutherland hospital.
Got there right on Nipper time - nearly Beanpole'd it as there were no parks! Finally got one a few blocks back. Full but fun - not the size I was expecting

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I was happy to get the f uck out of there in my early 20’s The general mindset of the inhabitants? Yep. All whitebread bogans except for a few. I keep in contact with the good blokes I grew up with. Terapai Richmond who’s a seriously good drummer and Greg Mckinley (the ox). They both only surf the ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Well I ended up at the Roy. Was a lot different to what I was expecting. Got a few sliders so can't complain. Tarnished a bit by a dad with his son. He was calling him on to waves with no thought to what's happening on the inside. Dropped in on me twice and forced me into the reef. I really wanted t...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Grabbed a few tiny ones in a protected southern corner. Very lazy but after flu and no surfing for ages it felt right.

By the way, since when have the flags been up in July?

^^ Just realised she sold me my board last year at Basement. My son's skating journey has take n off in the last few months. A new skate park opened near us at Meadowbank and he's down there every chance he gets. I haven't seen him skate for a while but apparently he's way better than the last time...

Re: skateboarding ...

You have a 4ft ramp in your garden Ricky?? What Loof said. Pics? Yeah, my wife bought one off a company in Brookvale I think. I thought it was way over the top, but coming from a classical music background where parents fork out 10s of thousands for instruments it's not a big deal to her. It separa...

Re: skateboarding ...

None of the pro street skaters seem to bother with padding. At the start of January I took my son to a Thrasher mag/independent demo at Sydenham. They were pulling off crazy shit - no pads or helmets. They do know how to fall and run out of a trick though. It's pretty impressive to watch how they do...
