Re: Ask Carroll

You'll get a good run on that one Ron. Surreal irony to be defending surfing on a website (inappropriately and unintentionally comically) titled RealSurf. Such is the peculiar reality of the day when truth wears the garb of criminality and is called on to defend itself; to horrifically mangle a gre...

Re: Slater, Greg Webber & Shane Herring

I just bought a 6'4 and a 6'8 LSD Flashback (quad fin fish). The 6'4 is super responsive and fast, a rocket. The 6'8 is a dog in comparison, but I bought the 6'8 to do the job of a mid size or mal, which it does, so I'm not too fussed, its way more responsive than any of those type of boards. Also, ...

Re: NEED ANSWERS NOW !!!

Well if you don't think about how your board works and try to ascertain what design features do what, and venture an opinion how will you ever learn? Someone blaming the rails or whatever has at least started to think

Re: Slater, Greg Webber & Shane Herring

Godsave, as an apparently intelligent and analytical person, doesn't the absence of clear feedback from McCoys frustrate you? I had one for a while, stupidly oversized for me, and while I made it out of more barrels on that thing than anything before or since I just found it a bit dead underfoot I'...

Re: Byron bay surf festival

Granted, stylistically and aesthetically Campbells' films were very well crafted compared to the zero budget Litmus.......but as far as the actual content , meaning and significance of the films go. No fcuking comparison. Not taking the piss, but I would love to hear you elaborate on the actual con...

Re: Sense of place

Good pics Cranked. That one of the guesthouse at Impossibles, with the guy wading in the water out front just reminded me of my last visit back in August.

Re: Sense of place

That's it, I'm done for a while. Bummer about the cropping though, a lot of people see only half of the frames. One last pic, Cranked and partner, marriage ceremony, Legian kaja, November 1983.

Clan house, the best I've seen. The women graciously let me in and allowed some photos, not others, couldn't really figure the logic as to why. http://i151.photobucket.com/albums/s125/DavidTravis/Sense%20of%20Place/DSCF1438.jpg http://i151.photobucket.com/albums/s125/DavidTravis/Sense%20of%20Place/D...
