Surfing is such a cynical business. We’ve had Carroll and others bleating on for years about how longboarders suck, twins suck etc..now look. Lol
I know, I know. Years of feeling guilty when in reality we were cutting edge. :lol:

I remember some wheelchair xylophonist getting all macho about how he liked to smash absolutely heaps of Weetbix before a hard day's roofing

Kellysboards look jittery. Italo was insane and Jack Robinson too. What’s with the bleached hair?
Funny for an introvert. Works for someone like Italo.

Great to see Ethan win. Plus an all AussieFinal.

Nice, but they aren’t representing Australia. It’s like professional tennis. Can’t get too jingoistic about pro surfing but, I’m sure we’ll try to fly the Aussie Battler flag, sing We Are Australia and recite Bango Patterson none the less

I agree Thud.
Jingoism in pro surfing is just weird.

Enjoyed your point break article in SN. 3 points of note here always chokers.

Well, yeah, but it’s part of the whole thing and obviously part of marketing. No more than tennis. I struggle with Jack Robbos attitude a bit and have a bit SE Queensland pride in Ethan doing okay.

Is it part of it? The Brazzers carry on but, that’s boarding on weird. It’s a us vs. everyone else.

Fair point on SEQ.

Nice name drop, Steve :lol:
I ain't got a jingoistic bone in my body but it wasn't possible to watch that Final without something like nationalistic pride thudding in my throat.

You better change your password then Steve, someone with your login has been making a goose of themselves in the NRL thread.

Oh, that's QLD parochialism.
