He shapes some pretty amazing snowboards too, if I have the right guy.

Run out of condoms?


I won't have much time in Tokyo, unless I pass one on the way to something else it's unlikely.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

You can't get a physical addiction to LSD, or die from an overdose on it.
Well, you might be able to, but nobody has found the lethal dose yet. It's above 2000 'trips' taken at once, though.

Psychological addiction is a whole 'nother thing.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

If you're going to try and pump it you need to have the centre fin a bit further back, and bigger (deeper) sides.

I would position the front of the centre fin at the most rearward point of the sides.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Right on Thud. I've used 2+1s a lot, but always in mid lengths and they were OK, but never really lit up. Very sensitive to placement of the centre fin/the fin cluster shape. Mark where it is now. Half an inch further back and it'll be a down the line board, half an inch forward it'll probably be u...

Re: Pinched nerves?

Geez digger, that sucks.
I had a similar but less serious neck injury, instead of weakness I had uncontrollable spasms.
I know how hard it is to stay positive, but hang in there.

Re: Surf helmets - hopefully Roy fcuks off

No eating?! A fate worse than death for grooter. Gaths don't have proper impact protection, it's the wrong sort of foam. More like footy headgear. They take a while to get used to. Lack of noise and difficult to duckdive without them filling up and snapping your head backwards. I've got one you can ...

Re: Midlengths

Re: Norfolk Island

Didn't mention it before but I was there for the annual agricultural show.
They had categories like 'best 12 mulberries on a player's, 'best pair of feral chickens caught on the northern side of the island's.

The tard finalists here wouldn't even get out of the pool stages over there.

Re: Occy's lake

There's one out in the eastern suburbs of Brisbane too.

I thought the one near Trev was a Barra fishing place now?
