Re: Just general surfing stuff

Some of us might remember the last really epic June/July, in 2007. The way these patterns are evolving is almost the precise opposite of that year. Geez. I do remember that. We had just moved up here and I surfed pretty much every day for a couple of months. Thought I was in heaven. Since then, not...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Not sure if any of you guys would remember Ronny Silcock. Goes back to the very early days of Sydney surfing in the 60s.
He's in hospital on the Gold Coast having had 2 strokes following unrelated surgery a week or so ago.

So what happened to him?
Think the chemicals were affecting his health in a big way. Had to give it away.
Some of his customers on here will probably remember the details more clearly.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

In years to come sure I'll see a replica above some bitchin' bar. Ala Jerry Lopez red Lightening Bolt boards. There's a Lightning Bolt on the wall of a coffee place in Ala Moana shopping centre. Couldn't work out how to sneak out with it. :( How quick are you Trev? Nowhere near quick enough. I pict...

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 gree...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Mine too. Although I reckon I've had a lot less than most on here.
Just one O/S board. A GSI Modern Longboard. Not my best choice. Bought for a purpose. It wasn't up to it. Now gone.

You’d have to be pretty excited about that score. Sweet looking log
Two months in and I'm still loving it.
My green John Broadhurst is slightly smaller (And older) but the transition from one to the other and back is really easy.

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 ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

And I know its a minority, unfashionable view but I love the camaraderie of surfing. love my crew, love my people. I agree Steve. There is nothing like having a good fun surf to yourself- once in a while. But from the time I got back onto surfing in the mid 80s I've found myself as part of a great ...
