Re: Just general surfing stuff

Well crabby I quit my day job to take up a coastal job that means I'm at the coast 2 days a week, and I find myself unreasonably excited about surfing poorly in crowded springtime Gold Coast slop. In general though, I have to say I'm liking the mountain biking scene a lot more than surfing. You kno...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Yerah braithy I wouldn’t sweat it, do what feels right. We all gotta re-assess our passions from time to time. and that's what it feels like right now. a phase that i'm going through that'll pass once i've re-assessed everything. it's just weirded me out. i'd never been happier with my boards, my h...

Re: skateboarding ...

The biggest thing to adjust to with going from surfing to skating bowls is remembering to push ‘off’ rather than through. Aside from that, I reckon both compliment each other in many ways. Picking lines, keeping consistent speed, timing and reaction, etc. It’s been about two years since I’ve skated...

I hear your pain.

that's just it man ... there is no pain. not a single ounce.


maybe i'm just an adrenaline junkie and i get more from skating. maybe it's just a phase that'll pass. i really don't know. i've never been here before.

i'm not thinking too much about it ... just doing it.

Re: skateboarding ...

Pad up Braithwaite. Sooner or later, momentarily you’ll forget you’re on concrete and think you’re on water. For example, you might try blowing the tail on a backhand grind then suddenly realise that concrete don’t budge. you reckon i can get away with just knee pads? other than some big drops i'm ...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I don’t understand. Don’t you surf for how it makes you feel? How can your ‘stoke’ levels be affected by whether surfing is cool or not? yeah, surfing just doesn't feel the same it used to. i use the whole 'cool' thing as a bit of a simplistic troll. sure, it's crowded like never before. that, i th...

Re: skateboarding ...

i just built this little ripper for the local bowl, ramps and pool. it's been pure stoke. 8.0 rodriguez, 54mm bones blanks, 148's thunder trucks. zealous bearings. touched the coping (not quite grinded it) in the 10ft pool this week. i nearly came off in the transition. not sure i've been that scare...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

surfing's dead fellas. it's just reality. ... meanwhile skating continues to rise like the fallen phoenix. this week in the 10ft pool with about two and a half of feet vert, i touched the coping on my 8.0 rodriguez running 54mm wheels. no helmet, no pads. possibly reckless. when i got out a few youn...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

i love those days. big and alone.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

i went south from me and got some fun waves. maybe 3ft sets ...

the big pay off were all the nude chicks sunbaking along the stretch i was at. i walked about km going past identical bank situations just for the scenery.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Where does MSW get it's call from? According to Godsave they are forecasting/reporting some hypothetical open ocean data point which the common man then extrapolates back to his or her surf spot. But where? There's no buoy data to support their call. It looks like made up computer gibberish to me. ...
