Seen as though they retail at $875. $710 with Scloth seems pretty good to me.
I'm out of touch with reality buddy, haven't looked at a price in a board shop for quite some years. Just been going to the same bloke for yonks and don't quibble on the price, looking through some of the threads I get a bloody good deal. I should research boards more though considering my obsession with surfing. Your right 20% off is probably close to cost for a retailer.

It's a professional sport. They play to win
Kelly would have done the same at pipe in a heartbeat
Kelly did do it, to Porko at Kirra. The point of difference being that Kelly surfed that wave, whereas Medina went straight (read left) and tried to run into Slater, attempting to create an interference call. Thats pretty full on.

I reckon the rules should stipulate that a surfer without priority should be given an equal opportunity to surf a wave, when the surfer with priority is so far down the line that taking off on the wave acts only as a spoiling technique rather than an attempt to further their heat score.

Professional or not there are things you don't do. "Gamesmanship" in all sports is frowned upon but a cnut is a cnut act.

Yes I'd understand if he dropped in and rode the wave. Cock.

Slater still got barrelled when he dropped in on Parko. How good would Parko's have been if that didn't happen?

I don't know how you would get a board bag to fit into a black cab. And I'm not lugging it all the way from the Heathrow Express to the Queen's Terminal.

Yeah, and even then it only ends up in Sydney.

I think godsave should join me on the bukit for a solid bali surf trip. I can show him the uncrowded spots and we can both wow the locals with the superior ability bestowed upon us by the magical lazor zap.

Yeah saltman I get that you use priority to advantage. No problem with that. It was the left turn into Kelly to try to force an interference call. He even threw in a little gesture to the judges to plead. I suspect he saw Kelly raise his hands out of the corner of his eye and thought that was an appeal so countered. Whatever, he's a cnut.

Go with Cranked, Goddy. He has this "priority" thing they're all talking about, all sewn up over there.
And you'll get a big enough dose of vitamin D and radiation to last you forever.

Vitamin D is overrated. Stay out of the sun.

Jye Byne 7 ft 2+1. Sorry that was vague. Hated it Wednesday. Fin adjustment and a few joined up banks with a little bit of push it was great.

What's the catch? Force-fed meaningful poetry and self-conscious chanting at sundown would be my guess

Force-fed? After a few days you'll be begging for more!

And whats wrong with chanting? It has to be done, otherwise the swell won't come but the Brazilians will.

We also have the world's worst gamelin... fcuk thy are bad, but its a sweet population control mechanism.

With everyone getting away from it all for the Chrissy break, is the surf less crowded in Sydney?
