I'm curious how many of you refer to a barrel as "a vision" like moronic Joe Turpel.

"Jordy's going to get a vision"

Never.


And never called a turn 'a dropped wallet' either.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Well if you can't grow revenues (or profits) because you're constantly selling goods "on sale", standard response is to buy another business or two which gives you time to find "synergies" among the businesses. What will that look like? Centralised back offices (marketing, accounting, procurement) a...

Re: skateboarding ...

Are you skating half pipes or bowls set ups?

Re: skateboarding ...

Knee pads are fine for drop ins, but it's when you start tapping, or going above, the coping when you have less control over fall direction and need elbow and wrist pads and helmet.

Re: skateboarding ...

Yep, what Iggy said.

Especially once you start wanting to tap the coping, your board will get hung up the 1st 50 times or so.

So much fun, maybe even classed as pumping. Overhead sets, glassy, good banks.

Yeah was pretty raw today, sounds like it was breaking similarly all over Sydney. Some cracking waves but fccckn difficult take offs. Found myself on the ocean floor in about 15-20ft of water after screwing one up.
Measured from the front or from the back? And is this 15-20 foot Iggy scale?
