Re: Just general surfing stuff

it's funny the day before the announcement I was walking past the Kathmandu shop in Byron, wondering how the fcuk this shop full of puffer jackets and cold gear was going to make money through spring/summer/autumn.

Doubt the town will be big enough to host both a Rip Curl and Kathmandu outlet.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Wales will get surf.

I actually am quite curious now about it.

Can you keep us updated Godsave?

promise no snarky remarks or baited replies. Just pure stoke.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

looks to accelerate as it undergoes extra-tropical transition and ends up smashing into the UK.

I sense a massive weather hype event.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

if it bothers you that much Godsave I'll go down the pawn shop and grab an old backpacker bike rack.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

it's easy and requires no extra equipment, no extra purchases no extra carbon intensive activities like our profligate baby boomer friends.

I just a pick a board up, get on the bike and ride it to the beach.

I don't need that extra shitt.

it's about stripping it back.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

the bike, I might add, which I picked up off the side of the road for free in Byron Bay last year and goes great.

Cranked and the other bike snobs would probably turn their nose up at it.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

No, I don't fear it.
it's just boring and poor bang for buck.

I might do a bit more bike riding this spring.
got a little project in mind for the next board test.

surfing with no car travel whatsoever, only surf waves I can walk or ride to.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

we only really got one big swell this winter and I had a crack at it ....not very successfully. even on a nine footer out near the shipping channel it was mostly hours of paddling for no reward.

still, no one out. Guess the cardio warriors had other things on that day.

without bragging, best it's ever been Godsave. I got the bedrock of 175chins (75 weighted) per week, plus push-ups , plus deadlifts, kettlebell swings and added weighted cossack squats for ankle strength/mobility. that added a lot of mobility and strength to my ankles/feet and made my surfing feel s...

Maybe time to swallow your pride and introduce some weight bearing cardio to strengthen those old bones like a brown trout sipping a dr...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I hope Godsave doesn't have a mud run "scheduled" when the swell is on.
