    Why Was Casa Banned??

    Paraphrasing myself...something along the lines of: when the puritanical forum po po see this someone could end up in hot water. Obviously it wasn't the thread that caused his banning because it is still up and open for comments.

    Modern-ish twin?

    Cool stuff. Man you're mate has a severe case of windmill arms...I'm a bit seasick after watching his contortions. Good work on the boards.

    Slater in Bali

    Seeing as his job description would be pro surfer I would think he applied for a business visa without too much drama. Sure if you are only trying to enter on a tourist visa it is going to be more difficult.
