Re: Bells Beach

Can you gimme a brief lowdown on Rabbit's concept? The original Dream Tour was what took them to Tahiti originally and Gland and that ridiculous spectacle that was in Mexico. I’ll happily stand corrected by NC and Shearer but it was the when pro surfing was exciting. I understand that they need to ...

Re: Bells Beach

I agree with GS. I reckon it’s cooked. No doubt pro surfing will always exist but the current model doesn’t work. The viewership is unbelievably low and there simply isn’t the endless pit of money from the surf companies anymore.
Rabbit’s model of the dream tour is the thing to save it I reckon.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Sideways Surf have opened an outlet store in Brookvale. Any good my Queensland comrades? Sideways are sorta like the Kmart of the surf world. There’s stuff I would buy from there but other things I’d stay clear of. Their boards are all made in Bali although shapes are licensed from from reputable s...

New steamer every year for me, but unlike realsurf I actually surf in Perth. So spend an inordinate amount of time paddling to keep fit for when the surf actually gets to two foot and I get to ride a wave.
Fixed that for you mate.

Fair enough.There’s another mob from up here called the Independent Surf Company or something. I think Shearer reviewed one of their suits.

Dbah looked like loads of fun this morning. I guess it doesn’t have the same appeal in terms of a finishing venue.

Re: Sumba

You can see his board chattering away with the speed he had. Was that the Russian bloke?
I mean he got two barrels or maybe three but wonder if a bigger board my have suited better for that particular wave.

Re: Cruise ship,Terminals and Otway raids!

Look I appreciate your points of view Wyre and Brett. As I said a couple of weeks ago. I’m sure Beans is a quite interesting bloke IRL. He’s been around. It’s the threadbombing that I don’t like. You can paint me as the nasty guy but one of the funniest and most entertaining posters here was Braithy...
