I was reading about some league player who was about to marry some hot girl but was busted texting a young staffer at the club.

Re: General snow stuff

I don't know what the splitboard setup is like but many ski touring bindings don't have a flat position and are therefore not great on the flats. Like walking in stilettos, apparently. You get sore legs holding yourself from tripping forward.

Re: General snow stuff

Triceps are from using too much pushing. I'm guessing you'll be in an icy area so crampons might be a good idea. Nothing worse than it gradually getting too far onto ice without and then the sketchiness of trying not to slide to doom.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Most likely, so I don't have to hassle with stupid Australian check-in counters and maybe one day contemplate North America again.

I don't want to breathe either N2 or Ar but both are presumably good candidates for compressibility and inertness.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Avalanche backpack. Classified as Dangerous Goods due to explosive trigger and compressed argon or maybe nitrogen. It has its own special section in the IATA regulations. I always get airline permission. In Europe they see dozens and just wave you through. In Australia I've always had a slight delay...

Last time I went through a similar process it took over an hour for Qantas to work it out. Dumbasses.

You probably don't have reasonable fitness. That, or the altitude.

the difference is: you walk out of one of those pubs and you are in Australia.
You walk out of an English suburban pub and you're in England.
I dunno steve. I've walked out of some pubs and been in Laverton or Wiluna or Nullagine or Yalgoo. Not places I'm exactly stoked to be in.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Not really. No attraction at all. Only London once or twice and I hated it in comparison to anywhere across the channel. But I have wasted a lot of time in seven levels of hell of outback pubs.

steve must not have been to many Australian pubs. I've been to many that wouldn't be out of place in Wake In Fright.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Did you read the other thread? It's for a specific use case. Yep it's massive, which was the shortcoming I mentioned. Couple of times its size and volume made it hard to bite when I needed it to. But for a big floaty thing it fits the bill. Still turned but the dross means I'll need more time to eva...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I surfed the board you all helped me choose in utter dross. It does what it advertises. Paddling wasn't an issue today but I could feel the float. I also felt the shortcoming of this type of board twice.

5.3m white was front page news today. The report inside was next to a story and photo of a 4m tiger caught and released.
