Quick edit.. you can set your watch by the nocturnal nuisance . He leaves around 8.30 pm and returns at 5:15 am

My watch goes by a triple canine nuisance. It starts at 8.31pm and starts at 5.16pm. Drives us nuts but at least they stay away from my fruit trees.

The WWF - that's the World Wildlife Fund not the World Wrestling Federation - has bought a gill net license, the last of its kind, in the northern GBR.

It's the fourth license the WWF has purchased then shelved to protect wildlife.

Conservationists buy fishing licence in Great Barrier Reef to create net-free safe haven for dugongs

End result of straightening out at low tide this arvo:

The good news is I've got two on order and I no longer have to hide them.

The bad news is I lost a fin from a good quad set of Mitchell Rae fins.

Can't really tell but, while the main break is angular, the whole back block is cracked and stressed. Clear sign it wasn't the wave but impact with the bottom. Also got a good graze to testify how shallow it was.

SS, just saw the message. Yeah, it was real big. Just gone to bed. But all good, just stuff falling off shelves etc. Our piano moved quite a bit so that was trippy.

IB, beautiful hound. Way ahead of you- this arvo it's walkies up the hills behind home.

Hodadz Salute the Kooks'n'Gromz wot be steppin' up for the massive Flood Effort.
Each day & week us old salts cheer on the heroic young crews.

These young bloods are forging a rewarding change thru the our communities.
Everywhere you turn...each person who helps another is now instantly rewarded like never before!
tbb helped enough to be rewarded free Coffee / Beaut Flowers / Monsta breaky Meal / Easter Egg.
All ya gotta do is simply lend a hand, spread kindness or do a favour & the love grows all around.

Just today tbb saluted another 10 lads filling up 50 brand new Large Fuel Tanks for Generators.
Sure! Ok...Utes & Wagons are potential Bombs but these Rocket Ships have our blessing.
Random Women folk kissed & hugged them & Old Salts rallied the lads on quest into the Abyss.
These Lads paid for $2L fuel themselves & loaded it up & will ensure the needy have a chance.

There ain't no Pollies 'round here & all nod they're better off without the dead weight.
Wot! All say wot they mean & absolutely all are one voice on this matter! (Pollies can fuck off!)
[ Election Notice ] Any halfwit Pollie grandstanding off the back of 2022 flood is dead meat!

tbb promised to inform the community that Youth of Today has what it takes...happy to vouch for that!

There's no doubt about it, can't live without it ... It's Love.
Oh, what a wild sensation...multiple revelations
Don't even need explaining...You'll never hear me complaining
'Bout love...
I'm in all the way...It's love...That's where I'm gonna stay
It's Love... I'll try it...Won't fight it...I'll buy it!
It's Love... The Young Rascals ~ dedicated to the Young crew!

Out of iso and just about to pick up these two weapons:

Nice.
One on the right looks to be a more pronounced asym? Or is that just the camera angle?

stunet's picture

stunet Monday, 4 Apr 2022 at 12:21pm

Yep, it's a 6'0" with about an inch of offset in the tail and the same in the fin block (quad, heel side pair are an inch more forward than toe side).

Board on the left is 6'4" with offset about half an inch.

Didn't ever feel a need for asymm on step ups or guns, but the last board I got from Dyl was right on the mark, so I figured I'd give it a punt, but just tone it down slightly.

If It's worth anything, I scored last night too and we went out for brekkie this morning, both in great moods.

How good is love, no matter what form it takes.

Do you guys really count the years or remember the date? Me and my long suffering love of my life have been living in sin at the holiday inn for 24 25 maybe 26 years. I really don’t know. Must be that wedding date that sticks in your mind I guess. Congrats to everyone. It’s a hell of an achievement in this day and age to stick it out

Thanks for the photo Seaslug, great job there. Re remembering the date, I have it engraved on the ring, and my wife likes to mention it every now and then. :)
Edit: So Zen, husband years = dog years, hmmmmmm interesting concept.
