Oh yeah, just don't mention vaccines, MSM, global warming, Trump, etc, etc. Jim's done his research. But that aside, he's a wonderful guy.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Oh, and you can go and jam with Banksy at his restaurant The Mango Tree at Padang, Wednesday night was open to all comers, there's a pretty good stage upstairs: or discuss guitars and amps, he hand builds them, he's more into that than surfing.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Looks insane. Thanks, that's a good insight. I'm gonna come visit you next time you are there mate! Yeah sure. Could probably get you accommodation nearby, and a scooter. I spoke to a friend a few days ago who stays next door but one to me, he says my room is there waiting for me. Jake McKenzie (Dr...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

around 5 years ago, maybe more Banksy said he was in the primo position for the next set and no-one was within 300m of him, most were already off to Padang to get in after being caught inside, no way in at Ulus. Then he saw the set and started paddling for the horizon. It was a day predicted to be b...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

ctd meanwhile Banksy had also been hit by the set and his leggy broke on the second holddown Jim swam out sea because the swell had really jumped and waited there assessing his options. He hoped someone had seen what had happened and they would organise a rescue because well out the back there was a...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I was sitting in a warung just near the old ulus steps, it was well after sunset and a guy I knew came running along the road with his board under his arm, WTF are you doing I said. He said he had been surfing a huge swell at Outside Corner right on dusk when a huge set came through and washed him d...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Ulus has been big lately on SOB. A few old codgers on rhino chasers scoring a few....and a few floggings. It always looks like a great wave to surf at a bit of size....until you look at how much whitewater you would be dealing with if you got smashed...plus coming in. Yeah the sets are relentless a...

Gragagan is the only place that I've listened to the surf during the night, apprehensive of what the morning would bring:

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Wow, WSL merchandise.

I think we should have some Realsurfer merchandise. We could start off with a screenprint of Trev's head dip tshirt. I'll have two please.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

70k south, just on an hour. If I go up Legion's way it's also 70k but it's across the city as I'm in the south so it's a longer journey.

When I was in Sydney it was 20 minutes to Cronulla and 35 min to Garie.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Just got back. The wind was offshore locally but was blowing onshore out to sea and destroyed the swell... occasional head high crap. Surfed by myself for less then an hour and came home.
