He’s got a good bit of arm action going that’s for sure, the guy in the gloves. Almost iggy-level flailing

Flailing. You mean like that welsh pro surfer kook from the early 90’s that couldn’t time a single closeout re-entry?

Iggs, are you telling me a good surfer can make any board look good?

Mind blown.

Connor Leary on a CI MID (sort off) looks no good IMHO but Im a fan of his short boarding.

….this was pushing off the wall not diving in.

...running out of breath underwater hasn’t been an issue. Not too bad for a 62 y/o who surfs irregularly.

Because I don't just go out and marry any old surfer who looks good riding a midlength, The Mighty. They have to show commitment first. Devon and I might be going steady but I'm still seeing other midlength and mal riders.

Apparently some Booger got a broken spine from a wipe out at Bronte on Saturday. Shorey is brutal at the moment.
