Re: Bribie Island Board Riders

Ive only been to Brisbane twice. Once for work and once when my airplane blew up and I had to spend the night. Thats the closest I've been to Bribie.

Although when I lived in HK I knew a person called Breebie. Does that count?

Re: Watch recommendations

ISO 22810:2010 says that 50m watches are only suitable for ‘shallow’ water activities (although that includes swimming) and should not be used for activities involving high-velocity water or submersion below shallow depth; 100m is recommended for surfing So 50m is fine so long as you don’t duck dive...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Well, at least there's no blue bottles in Lemoore. It's virtually unsurfable today down sth. 4 of us went out, all got stung, one wave each, that was it. It was a clusterfcuk of bluebottles. Impossible to dodge them. I've never seen this many on the sth coast. The beaches are blue. https://m.youtub...

Re: Inguinal hernia, anyone had surgery?

In the 1980s/1990s my father in law had open heart surgery 3 times to replace blocked arteries, months of recovery etc Now they just shove stents in to keep the arteries open. He is 84 or thereabouts and they gave him one just last year, overnight stay. I think that was his 3rd or 4th. No way could ...

Re: Kelly's wave.

I've tried to find a similar sport to compare with; it is maybe similar to skaters who stay in the same park their whole lives, but even they have the benefit of different objects and runs etc. Maybe the same half-pipe? . playing a golf course vs a driving range. You are still hitting the golf ball...

Re: Operation

I've seen a lot of of beginner/getting back into it swimmers recommend the 0 - 1650 program http://ruthkazez.com/swimming/ZeroTo1mile.html But you might want to take it a bit easier, maybe double the length of the program (ie week 1 = 1/2 the recommended distance for week 1, week 2 = week 1, week 3 ...
