The ability of most of the eastern suburbs beaches to make a sow's ear out of a silk purse is still pretty soul destroying, you have to admit.

Re: My attempt at making a Fish!

I didn't watch the video, but how good is Mitch's!
And wahoo's fish tacos is nearly next door, while across the street there's a place that sells hotsauce and liquor.

Maybe my favourite set of shops in the world.

Re: Nth NSW sharks. Can they p!ss off already?

Your maths is wrong, duck. Well, technically your maths is right, but you don't know how to work out percentage change. You've worked out the new rate as a percentage of the old rate. Percentage change is: (New-old)/old * 100 It's (0.70-0.05)/0.70*100 = 0.65/0.70*100 Closer to 93% than 92%, but Nick...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Nick's explanation left out the massive dredging campaign that buried Kirra reef and dramatically changed the nearshore beach profile in Coolangatta bay, back in 1995-96 and 1998. And the bypass volume has tried to match the natural rate of sand transport since 2006, they just didn't do a great job ...

So true loof.
Hey, did I ever tell you about the time I rode my bike at 28km/h for almost 10 minutes?
Cadel Evans was in the group ride, he told me I was born to be a cyclist.

Re: Where did you surf today ?
