I watched it for half an hour, mesmerised by the too fast lefts reeling off down the beach, no takers. I heard a report that bla...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Swell has muscled up down the coast this morning. Solid double over head at least at local magnets, too big for the beaches. WSW blowing fairly hard, has killed off a few spots. Haven't you got some architecting to do? why yes, yes i do. Having worked the last 3 weeks without a day off, i thought i...

Re: Rio Pro

The Rio Comp won't let me watch tonight unless i'm already on facebook. I'm not on facebook, i'm not a member or whatever you call it. I don't want to be on facebook either. It asks me to join when i go on the wsl site to watch the comp, so i click 'Not Now" and it flicks me onto the front page of t...

And this premise of toxic masculinity that Tim Winton seems in thrall to.

Re: Margaret River Pro 2018

Has only recently decided to like Bells, having spent some time to get to know the wave and reversing his earlier views, ...

He was masterful in the way he surfed that heat though. Controlled it outright from start to finish.
