Steve could do eleven tricks I reckon

1) pop up
2) trim
3) floater
4) cutback (standard not full cranked roundhouse)
5) slash
6) snap
7) barrel
8.) 360 (once in 1989)
9) bottom turn
10) check turns
11) re-entry

What. You mean a “backpacker barrel” ?

Doubt he’d lower himself, pun intended

What no Rodeo Clown?

There’s an older guy in Sydney who does 360’s. They look grunk.

Why do people say "grow some balls"? Balls are weak and sensitive. If you wanna be tough, grow a vagina. Those things can take a pounding.

How do you differentiate re-entry from the other moves mentioned earlier?

Jeez I dunno. Guess that the terms are interchangeable. From what I can decipher, the re-entry is a “vertical” turn off the top hitting the lip or a connecting section (as opposed to a slash that may or not be so vertical).

Either way, I’m sure Steven can do a re-entry 🤗

Looking for a nice wave with a deep reef that doesn't hurt.

Ah surfing. Pretty much the only sport where adult males will openly challenge each other like male lions on the Serengeti.
What are you fcuking talking about thud, ALL sports cause adult males to behave this way, in fact surfing is pretty low on the list

Like this Tardery may be happening on line but what do you think would happen if god save and shearer met in real life.

:lol:

I’ve never been to the Maldives Steve. Are they gnarly? How do they measure up against central-to-southern NSW slabs and reef points?

I reckon they would try drink each other under the table and miss a good surf off opportunity in clean uncrowded waves the following morning.

I think a home and away leg is only fair. Neutral ground obviously. Boscombe reef and Bondi?

I dunno but I hope it is big, I’m sick of these half cocked south swells with their fetches that fall over and point toward some other fcuken coastline.
Aren't we all.
