Re: Quad / Thruster ride report - fin advice needed

AM2 side fins but with an AM3 trailer. I use TC redline side fins and a 3" trailer, it retains drive but loosens it to the point of controlled sliding. R2s are good for drive and still loose too.

Re: Building lung capacity - advice needed

How about further restricting the use of both, especially for developing teenaged brains ? Now it's time to run for cover...... :) I'd legalise pot but I think we should...

Re: the boy in bali on pot charges

Indeed, Fong, but people make mistakes, especially kids. And this has been exacerbated by rumours which have been spread by highly irresponsible adults who should know better. But, of course, that's the idealist in me. Were those highly irresponsible adults his parents? Shouldn't they have been sup...

What airline was that and how big was your quadfather? International travel is usually a little more generous but I'll be checking weight and dimension limits.

Recommended Surfboard Coffins for travel

I plan on taking 3 boards (6'0,6'4,6'8) on a trip next year to Indo and the local surf shop owner recommended a triple coffin with wheels but the thing is the wheels seem to add 2kg of weight. That's 2kg of clothes and other stuff I have to sacrifice. The O&E triple 7'0 with wheels weighs in at 6.4k...

Re: what? what? WHAT??? i cant ear u

Good to hear that it's fixed. I'm guessing you have surfer's ear too? I don't think anyone gets way without it. My ears block from time to time and Aqua Ear seems to help clear them. It's also gotten bad enough to see an ENT specialist and he removed some polyps too.

Re: Building lung capacity - advice needed

Hypoxic training sets will help you. At swim squad these are a foundation for increasing oxygen efficiency, it won't really help with increasing lung capacity per se, just make a breath go further - same goal though. Assuming you can breath bilaterally when swimming freestyle, do the following: 2 x ...
