Does that include us Nick?

Planning on my first surf in almost 5 months. Some nice NE swell would be perfect to spread out the crowd on the NB’s.
oh totally, nothing hair raising

Bali announces it will open up to international tourists on September 11.
If you can get there wonder if Gladys will by then be making you pay for the 2 week iso hotel stay upon return?
And how much the flights will cost?

Wasn’t aware until yesterday there’s actually a ban on Australians leaving Australia currently.

Oh yes, almost impossible to get permission to leave (weddings and even funerals don't make it) plus the long queue for expats/travellers to come back here.

It really is coming Fortress Australia.

WSL should just replace the tour with footage of Dane. How is it he is still eminently more watchable (by a long way) than 99% of the tour competitors:

Watched Occ Casts with Curren and Slater. Interesting juxtaposed against each other. Curren is starting to look increasingly like HG Nelson. Nice end when they went roller skating together.

Derek felt a bit unwell and drove up to Wahiawa hospital where he underwent tests, they found he'd had a major heart attack. He slipped into a coma and died late this afternoon HI time.

How old was Derek Ho? I wonder if he had a history...or family history. Doesnt matter, really sad..just a reminder to we older Realsurfers. My Cardiologist is a surfer and has only one goal..to keep me in the water as long as possible.
