Indonesia is full of so many contradictions in so many different ways but this place takes the cake.

Been enjoying the documentary series on SBS called Abandoned where a skateboarder by the name of Rick McCrank visits areas in America that been left behind and turned into wastelands by the countries rampant consumerism.
Episode 4 is about the 20 schools in St Louis that are now empty and the remaining school is a military college, giving the lower class poorly educated the opportunity to guard the oil fields in the middle east.
At the end he visits this incredible abandoned church with huge arches and massive stained glass windows, in which the local skateboarders have turned into a skatepark, very surreal.

Whatever Goofy.

I'm not a fan of crowds for a start . And I like my intimacy to be a little more consensual regardless if it's besides a waterway.

Oh wait..... that's river cottage , not river frottage.

My mistake.

There you go, if anyone ever enquires about the lowest point of Swellnet.

Hello hello?

Did someone say they needed the bar lowered?

Reminds Gary of a little incident he had at schoolies in the Gold Coast once, can't remember which year but it must have been the 12th or 13th schoolies Gary went to. Gary had overdone the caffeine powder while trying to do a bit of final rig sculpting and a friendly fella who'd been admiring the Ol' G from afar sidled up to offer a bit of heart medication and a bottle of smelling salts to calm me down. Even put his arm around my shoulder, kindly, to make sure Gary was feeling ok.

Well Gary doesn't know what was in those little blue, diamond-shaped pills, but Gary had to turn down the gentleman's offer of a relaxing sauna because it soon became obvious the bar wasn't gonna get lowered anytime soon.

Queensland, it's a funny place hey?

You and me, Gary, ain’t nothing but mammals so let’s do it* like they do it on the aerobics channel

How Aussie is this vid the ays and Faarrrrks are gold.

BTW is Alveys reels going to stay open or what?, those things are bullet proof and not much that can go wrong with them, salt water no problem, losing the handle is about it.

Please Stunet just give me that ignore button for Crypto (Herc, uplift or whatever other names he has used)

Alvey’s 1 : 1 retrieve ?

Fuck that.

Get those fuckers in ASAP. Wait till you’re dodging sharks to see how much time you’ve got for a slooooooow retrieve.

Digging their holistic approach to fishing/ life though. More power to them.

People talk about learning from blackfellas and maybe the ultimate thing we can gleam from their example is to treat the Earth’s resources as finite and to realise the depth you can exploit an area of any harvest before it becomes unsustainable.

Everyone please check the appropriate regulations for each area you intend to hunt / fish / harvest.

More importantly, ask the locals just what is cool / uncool to catch or take. Respect the place you stand on .

Would have been great if they showed a bit of surfing with it,maybe episode 2......cant understand why they use Alvey's.......simple but....and nice feel good catch and release but if those Groper had swallowed the hooks they wouldn't survive,be better off eating them.

Weren't they blue Groper?, pretty sure they are a protected species all over Australia.

Thought the same about the abalone looked pretty small, probably should have shown us with the measuring tool they weren't undersized..

Yeah maybe Alveys are not that suited to areas around reef and rocks, but still great reels for beach fishing and traveling so care free, saltwater and sand no issue, i guess like surfing if you are a serious fisherman you have a quiver of reels and rods too suit different situations.

The abalone were tiny as were the groper not to mention climbing all over virgin cliff instead of sticking to tracks and chopping down trees , all very "back to nature", the desert is a fragile environment and should be respected, it may look like fuck all but every little bit of vegetation is precious, even stuff that looks dead is still holding back erosion and may just be dormant rather than dead. More of a what not to do in SA video clip
