Re: Midlengths

I just want to make sure that everyone has seen this clip. It's a big call, but it's the best surfing clip I've seen on the interwebs for as long as i can remember. I'm sure I'm responsible for half the views it's had. Smooooooooothhhhhh. https://vimeo.com/117554484 Agree, he has a very functional,...

Winter Eisbach.
I think Eisbach either means ice bath or pre surf beer.

Re: Injuries Blog

Looks like the various brands of reef boots have varying degrees of grippiness. These ones don't have the grip pattern around the edges whereas in the photo I posted on the previous page of the Oneill ones there is more grip around the edges which could be a slight hindrance when your feet slide sli...

Re: Injuries Blog

booties are effing horrible. Oh I hate them too. But I'm in the market for a pair. At the moment all I have are these clumsy too-high pair of okespors I got in France in '91 Anyone recommend a pair of booties that feel "invisible" ? I bought a pair of the Xcell low cut reef boots because a cut on t...

Re: PAIN RELIEF

I read on the other thread that you got a MRI scan.
Did this show you the source of the pain.
Have you been to a Chiropractor.

Great footage.
Would love to see this footage on a big theatre screen.
The slow motion allows your mind to wander around the screen and be totally gobsmacked by the insanity of surfing the place.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Thanks Carvin. I really enjoyed that. I don't know what to think of the guy outside of the fact he is a tremendous surfer. I love watching him surf shortboards. While Tom Curren is reserved and quite I would say there is a bit of anxiety surrounding Lynch. Nick Carroll gave a little more insight wh...

Then the key thing is the amount of rocker, and the amount of tail lift is what is important making the board easier to throw around.
My Micheal Cundith mal has 3 3/4'' nose and 3 1/4'' tail which are the ball park numbers for a modern high performance mal.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Heavens Ed. Completely sharkless. 2 - 3 ft with 20 out on the left and right bank beside the river mouth, wave quality as usual very average but it was a beautiful day and it was great being in the ocean. I was the only surfer using a shark shield and still have all nine toes after my surf session. ...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I've known a couple of very good knee boarders very well. Still remember walking up the beach at The Pass many years ago and seeing Peter Crawford absolutely killing a small fast barrelling right through to Clarkes. Same, saw him at Crescent, early 80's I think it was, had never seen anyone so fast...
