Pro as in sponsored to free surf or on the tour. Definitely not on the tour.
So Jamie OBrien is supposed to be worth a $mill.
Didn’t know his dad was an Ozzie.
Talking to yourself there, Beans? Pretty much all home owners are millionaires these days. So Jamie owning a house at Pipe is sorta a no brainer.

More that Jamie can afford to own a house at pipe, Jimny…..if you haven’t been paying attention. He only bought it a year ago or something.

Apparently his contract with Red Bull is worth $500,000.

I believe canned water is sometimes substituted for folks having to knock back tinnies of that toxic swill in promotions.

I have been paying attention, Beans. Jamie follows me on twitter and I’ve had a few private chats with him.

That’s charming, Jimny. I’m referring to my post rather than your close personal relationship with JOB. So not knowing him at all I’m kind of curious about how much dosh guys doing his style of publicity stunts actually makes. The place he used to stay in is up for sale isn’t it?

You obviously didn’t read the two posts before mine on the other page.

Compared to Dimity I'm watching Megan Waters on #offsiders and she's great. Personality, intelligence, insightful.

Yep I subscribe. That’s were I get the watch hookup. I keep my SN subscription only for Shearer’s forecast and even though Ben’s a knob. I reckon Stu’s a good fella. And Craig is a legend. For $10 a month or whatever I can cope.

I read the occasional Steve article on SN.
I prefer his writing style to his debating style :-D-:

Warning, fin wanker talk ahead.

Cleaning out a box on Saturday arvo and found some old fins, and had enough time on a Sunday arvo to have a few waves on a few different fin sets.

First up was an old set of Kelly Slater 2.1, super stiff and made out of hard plastic/fibreglass mix that made the fins clank when tapped together. Nothing special about them.

Then an old set of TC Red Line fins, really noticeable difference. Heaps of drive, although noticed it stiffened the board right up.

Finally a set of TC White Line fins, really different fin to what I've been using with hardly any area in the tip. Really shortened the turn radius on my backhand and went more vert than normal. Didn't seem to lose any drive from the Red Lines but way looser in turns. Going to keep the White Lines in for a while.
