Well I read "the Kelly Slater Wave Company r and d team have been back to the drawing board, tweaking and experimenting, and developing a different-looking left down the other side of the pool" just this morning. Better hurry up with your story Nick.

"It's a serious wave, steep, fast and pitching out over a few inches of water above a rock hard base. If you fall, you hurt."
Did you fall Nick?

Surely Kelly's Idiot Ditch has a loose-lipped over-gunned journalist setting!

hey Lucky Al, if the Vietnamese,Thai or say Russian governments decided that they wanted a wavepool more than The Little Rocketman wanted an A-bomb and were throwing money everywhere to get one AND thanks to some sweet family connections you had the inside running on the tender for hospitality/catering/media liaison or water safety would you maintain the same level of contempt, disgust,rage & loathing as say ....
and here's a scoop
upcoming pool revue titled
"Fear & Loathing in a Californian Waste Water Treatment Settlement pond,how I survived the undertow."

Its a concrete base covered in a liner which is hard but apparently you slide on it so its not so bad.

I imagine it's not much worse than the beaches in Cali.

Yes, no way! I can't stand the smell of chlorine or the sound of jet skis. I don't mind trains though, as I used to fall asleep to the braking and shunting of coal trains on the tracks between Thirroul and Austinmer, so maybe I'll just take the train and play with that. But now I'm probably getting carried away. Does that answer your question?

It was Keating, wasn’t it? Being mauled by a dead sheep; flogged with a warm lettuce. Or did he appropriate it from someone else?
