Re: Global Warming

I believe it is our responsibility not to trash where we live and would be good if we could respect the land as it's original custodians did. THEN STOP TRASHING GLOBAL WARMING THEORIES!!!!!!

Any ideas? Was it me or th...

I came, I pootled around a bit, I left again.

"Couldn't organise a barbie at the bra" now replaces the piss-up/brewery.

Re: How do I remove paint from my surfboard

Depends on whether the flowery paint job was painted on the very top of the board, or is below the glassing. If its on the top, then you probably wont be able to remove the paint without wrecking the flowers... but that might be no bad thing? :wink: Acetone ( a tiny amount at a time ) and some gentl...

Yes it does.


Just don't go out there and you can't get attacked.

Re: what's the shittest wave in sydney?

Until I moved to Sydney two years ago, I had to travel five hours to the nearest decent break, and it was a hit and miss affair even with the best forecasting.

So I love every wave in Sydney. It's there, just outside my house, I love them all.



...except Coogee. That's shite.

Re: Don't ever travel with British Airways

The one time I did travel with a board with BA, about two years ago, they left a hole in the board the size of my fist :evil:

And, no, they wouldnt pay out on it :(
