Re: Where did you surf today ?

Well fcukin' good for you. I just caught a perfect train from Marrickville to St Peters. A slight cross-shore wind had zero effect on the rails and the sun could go fcuk itself. We walked up King St with a gusty tailwind generated by the steady flow of traffic. Absolutely perfect timing as the green...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Eloura. Straight as a ruler. It was my first surf in at least a couple of months. Shoulder/arm thing is still there but not giving me any grief. No paddle power, though.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I've got a pretty shit memory, but one thing that is clear, especially the feeling, is the day of my mum's funeral. After the service, there was a wake back at our house. I had only just turned eighteen and didn't understand why the adults were standing around, drinking and laughing. So, I quietly s...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

It's not a popular or easy thing to admit to, but I didn't miss my father after he died. I have to pretend to everyone (except my wife) that I do. We didn't have a bad relationship. It was probably best described as superficial.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Maybe I am beginning to see some things differently in the wake of my dad's death. I used to kid myself that he wanted to hear about our surfing adventures, and he always seemed to enjoy the stories. I think I missed something while I was on sabbatical. Sorry about your dad, Nick. From what you've ...

Definitely. There'll be a two hour erection workshop during which time students will be exposed to a variety of harsh conditions. This will test their ability to get and maintain an erection. Typical scenarios will include: - The Pass at 1-2' with lawyers and psychologists holidaying from Sydney rid...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I had a long conversation with Geoff McCoy many years ago and he totally sold me on his philosophy. I ended up with a 5'8" Nugget. I really liked it at first, but it lacked something and so the like faded away. Bit like a bell curve without the bell.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

i thought aj made some salient, albeit generalised - in the case of this thread's current issue re women in the lineup - but nonetheless broadly encompassed points. The generalised approach was deliberate, skip, because I don't think you can talk about women in the water, in the context of Nick's a...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I very much doubt the women surfers in this area would be comfortable with a man telling them their experience of being female in the surf has a "sinister background". with respect AJ, thats a nonsense attitude that belongs in the 60's. Beginning a sentence 'with respect' always implies the exact o...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

There's no doubt that there's a certain type of surfer who will exploit what they perceive to be weakness. That notion of weakness takes different forms - kids, kooks, race, age and gender - (as well as a combination) - and different surfers will exploit them in different ways, often informed by the...
