Re: Where did you surf today ?

Oh Zing!

I’ve got a fair level of respect for you for doing what you do at the age of 67. However I question the kilojoule system. Everyone knows that a longer period swell equals more joules. We just don’t need to talk like that.

That insta post was a promo shot I reckon. Wouldn’t be 100% certain that he even posted it himself.

Re: J-Bay 2018

I assume the forecast isn’t too good? I always cry when I see them run the finals in a dying swell. Re the viewer numbers and having not seen Shearer’s post. Surely the WSL have screwed the pooch by going exclusively through FB? I’m on the “rest of the world” option and each time I’ve tuned in there...

Re: post your modern day sickness

All of the well known brands have a similar model to that one. It’s all “more foam under the chest, wider point pushed forward bla bla bla”. There are differences between them so before splashing out $800 on the Chilli I’d look at the DHD models and definitely Lost and maybe Channel Islands. They’re...

Are 1st, 2nd and 3rd reefs out near Voodoo crowded too now?

I had some very quiet surfs there in the 70s. Aaaah the tranquillity
I last surfed there 10 years ago and it was just me, a mate and two other punters spread over the whole place. Had a surf at Vooey after and it was a circus.

I really do need to spend more time at Sandon
Second reef out near Voodoo is good too. Vooey can get good but like the point it fattens up after the first section. I reckon shoes is a better wave than the point

Re: Where did you surf today ?

i've been surfing the point alot lately before work. It's really starting to occur to me what an average wave it is. It’s fun for about the first few seconds, then it’s fairly boring cutback material. The point is a really poor wave. When second reef starts breaking it’s better but as you said it b...

Not that close. A good five metres in it. Thankfully your leg rope didn’t snap, or I’d now be monging out at beanmong levels.
I think the peanut gallery needs to hear more about this situation between RS’s newest brine brothers.

The shot of the back looks like there’s a massive dildo sewn into it or is that an added extra from the “shoot”?

Re: Margaret River Pro 2018

I don't understand why they weren't surfing it earlier. The peak looked rubbish. You'd know better than me Cranky but if it's small I'd always go Temples or Racetrack.

Yeah cause the DPI have really got the shark issue sorted. I remember Shearer speaking to Vic Pedomore and he had no idea from what I can recall.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Yep. He’s given up shaping boards (for the minute) which will increase his prices. He makes guitars now I believe.
I’m not sure that a Jim Banks acoustic will be as valuable as one of his Indo guns.

He reckons he's got one last great Indo classic left discovery in him and its the best of them all, mythical and perfect, the long left where goofys go to die. My honest opinion about Jim is this. He’s a great surfer and shaper and I worshipped him growing up in Cronulla. Obviously he didn’t get a ...
