Re: Where did you surf today ?

I didn't surf anywhere, and it was the first decent swell in years where I haven't even considered driving down to the coast. I realised, as I was checking the snow report for a place I won't visit for probably 5 years, that I've given up even the pretence of being a surfer. Realistically, I'm a sno...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

13s is actually fairly long period for the east coast.
7-9s is pretty standard north of Byron.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I know some Wegis. I'll check the pulse of public sentiment. I'm also part of a group that has been opposing oil drilling in the Bight for the last 3 years at least. Our board members have met with the federal environment Minister a few times to point out the flaws. I'll raise it again. BTW, 2 point...

Beans if you fly up, paddle out, and post footage of your set wave at Kirra, Iggy would have to quit the internets.

Re: General snow stuff

Nope, haven't been.
There's good snow in Iran too.

And my Serbian mate was telling me about his trip to Bosnia. Only 9 Euros for a day pass, but they have unexploded land mines and the occasional bear attack.

Jimmy I've got a mate who does aid work in Aceh.
He surfs, and has been trying to get me there for years. I can ask him for some info.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I saw a guy on a new Christenson get so rag-dolled on the rock-off on Sunday. Why do you think he is the best designer in the world Nick? He seems to be able to design and shape pretty much anything, from supergun paddle-in craft for Jaws etc (see Greg Long, numerous others) to classic Fish and lon...

I'll email you.
Some are fairly under the radar, loofy wouldn't be happy for me to blow them up.

You'd also greatly benefit from speaking some Nihongo for some of them.

Re: General snow stuff

Had a great second week.
5 resorts, lots of snow.
A couple of the best powder runs I've had, and I've been pretty lucky in the past.

Definitely recommend having a car, despite having to dig it out and clear the snow off it a few times.

Re: General snow stuff

Had 5 days riding at Madarao and Tangram. 2 were epic, thigh to waist deep blower pow. One was warm and a bit slushy, one was whiteout, one was bluebird with no new snow so I spent it on the groomers. Packed the wife and kids of to the airport, now I'm getting a train to northern Honshu for a week-l...

What sort of seaweed, duck?
Got a mate who is a marine botany expert, I'll ask him.
