Re: Where did you surf today ?

Sent you a PM, Wyre.
I recommend sorting out the back problem with a decent diagnosis first. I'm doing exercises I know work for me, based on 20 years of advice from physios.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Up until now, the Messiah's backhand gouges on marinelayer were my favourite but that one big turn of jjf might eclipse any of them. The one at 5:20ish? ***swoons*** Fcuk, the clarity of his lines. Like, from takeoff he's exactly where he needs to be at any point in the wave. It reminds me of Mike ...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Steve why do you care about pro surfing, enough to write about it?
I understand Nick's involvement and interest, it's sort of woven into the fabric of his life, but what got you in?

The question is unrelated to the current contest(s).

Re: Just general surfing stuff

The wave pool is just a natural evolutionary step in surfing, if you accept that we are simply monkeys using a stick to get ants out of their nests. It's kinda like 3D movies. There have been three or four iterations of it. Each time it fades away and, in doing so, proves its novelty. The last time...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Looked like fairly safe surfing from the highlights. Seabass and parko were somewhat interesting, the girls' surfing seemed to suit the wave better, maybe due to lower power?

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Yeah but there’s plenty of (good) surfers around in the 90+ kg range, busting airs even. Can’t see myself loosing any bulk. Quite the opposite as the weights and calorie demands are on the increase. But, why? I'm not against weights, far from it. I've been doing some light stuff this year and resol...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Or you could just lose some bulk.
Seems counterintuitive to get big when you like surfing.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Golf courses are primarily flood detention basins, the game is secondary.

Steve I meant the last one in the pool. I thought it had the same format?

Isn't it essentially the same as it was last time?

And did they get the work experience kid to do the website?

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Maroubra. 2-3 foot. Washy mix of dying south swell and sorta building north east swell. Semi clean and still a few ok peaks. Gonna swap the board back to running a straight single fin as it’s looser and faster and just run a 2+1 on days where it’s big and backless and want the extra bite and drive ...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I rode a 6'10" or so in California. Only a few waves, back when I was still learning, but it was an easy board to surf.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I find it hard to duckdive in a 4/3.the buoyancy difference is noticeable.
Also way less knee flexibility.

Edit to point out this was when living in California and surfing in February.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

The tightness over the top of the instep is critical as it affects blood flow.

Booties suck. I'd be trying to improve my circulation before wearing them in Sydney water.
