Here's some pics of a few more mellow and pristine days: http://i151.photobucket.com/albums/s125/DavidTravis/Padang%202/DSCF2204.jpg http://i151.photobucket.com/albums/s125/DavidTravis/Padang%202/S0592275.jpg http://i151.photobucket.com/albums/s125/DavidTravis/Padang%202/S0592276.jpg http://i151.pho...

Re: Padang Padang

Thanks petulance, that's saved me a lot of screwing around trying to identify the cause. I only have a laptop and a PC with a 4:3 monitor. There's just so much white space on the RHS (40%, 50% if you include the second column) that it seemed crazy to be cropping pics.

Re: Padang Padang

Yeah, I'm trying to figure out what's going on. Trev and I have exchanged a few PMs, no solution ATM.

Re: Padang Padang

Thanks Trev. Now for the hideous end section (there was a waterfall flowing off the reef platform up into the face after a big set, missed a pic of a previously wiped out surfer dropping down it, 6' drop, arms and legs everywhere, then the lip landing on top of him... ouch), keep high or die: http:/...

Re: Padang Padang

Thanks James, glad someone appreciates them, I can watch that wave forever on a good day. Probably got another 30 or so good ones. They are not so cropped on a bigger monitor.

Re: Gough...pity he didn't surf.

I was just watching everyone reminisce,spout anecdotes and so forth, on the Drum, I was waiting with bated breath for someone to refer to, if only obliquely, to this: Remember Goughs famous comeback line when a member of the opposition during a parliamentary debate, finished his speech with '' and t...

Re: Gough...pity he didn't surf.

I agree wholeheartedly with those last comments from Kayu, Foamy and Nick. Politics now seems sordid and pathetic with no vision and no leadership, unlike the idealism that seemed to permeate the very air when the "Its Time" campaign was rolling, things were exciting, something was happening. Is tha...

Re: Padang Padang

This sequence is for Andy; I think frame number 5 is the one that he'll like best though. http://i151.photobucket.com/albums/s125/DavidTravis/Padang%20Padang/S0801375.jpg http://i151.photobucket.com/albums/s125/DavidTravis/Padang%20Padang/S0801376.jpg http://i151.photobucket.com/albums/s125/DavidTra...

Padang Padang

Got a few pics of Padang Padang in the last few weeks. I'll post a few at a time.

Re: Ask Carroll

Nick, how big is this wave? http://i151.photobucket.com/albums/s125/DavidTravis/Bali%20Early%202014/IMG_0383.jpg The reason I ask is I don't want to seem even more of a kook than I am when talking about wave size with my peers. To help you along a bit I measured the wave on my monitor using my trust...

Re: Ask Carroll

On no, I can just see the synapses slowly firing, the light bulbs flickering. But hey, don't look at me! I really am me... was me?... will be me? Identity is such a nebulous thing. Perhaps I'm a reincarnation and I don't even know it. I don't think I could take over the mantle of loofy in any case. ...

Re: Meyerhoffer shortboard

It is only possible to do that on a modern shaped longboard. They are not real longboards and are not surfed like a longboard, they are surfed like a shortboard, totally negating any reason to be riding a longboard other than the rider is lazy and uses the extra length to catch more waves.

Re: Meyerhoffer shortboard

Andy, by what epistemological skulduggery do you arrive at that fact? Sure, a manoeuvre first performed and made popular by short borders, and one more rarely performed by longboarders, but when done the degree of difficulty and commitment is higher and the result more spectacular By the way I don't...
