    When did groms dropping in become normal?

    When I first started going to Central America on surf trips I was blown away by the number of Brazilians that just burned me cold. When I protested they threw up their hands in disbelief. My friends, we all started surfing in the early 70s, were also amazed. So I sat back in the lineup and...

    Too cold, in and out of the water. Forgo the fame and fortune for happiness and warm water.

    “High performance” midlength?

    WSL showing it has moved on from what surfing really means to most of us. They continue to distance themselves from the average joe and crap all over what the traditional ethos of surfing is. Gabby is a talented and determined guy but a train wreck of a role model for young kids.

    late january in Sydney

    School holidays and the water at its warmest temps. Not much swell at that time. Try to make a run up to the central coast for a couple of days.
