He may be a true charger but i dont think he's a style master in anyone's books...still good to watch but doesn't seem like the type i'd like to hang out with...so many loose units in Indo that somehow come across enough money to travel for eight months a year while still paying rent at home etc.
Im jealous.

I meant the dp shot and this quote cracked me up from ground swell. So true in todays world.

seventy two virgins will never stop a war but a hundred thousand hookers will beat the marine corp

Crew are quite happy to poke the bear until it all goes pear shaped, see it all the time. Some crew just don't get it. Don't know eddie, and not making excuses for him but if your going to play with fire in some instance you will get burn't. Allot of people play the victim after fucking up. Alcohol, ego and stupidly in the real world. The real world isn't the school yard, generally you get what you give. People make mistakes and some are piss takes. Basic respect shouldn't be tested especially with bears, you never know what you are going to get. The world needs the odd bear to keep humanity in check. just don't poke em and you'll be good. Nice woftd and gland shot. charge on. Honey's still honey.

Some one care to translate this for me?!?

Heavies are heavies, life's full of them, work accordingly. simple. Many people play victim after they antagonise or carry on with poor behaviour. Lifes full of them whether they should, or could is another thing. Your not going to talk shit around or at a local nutter are you especially if you know serious consequences are a possibility. Surf related or not. Harm prevention one o one. Antagonising certain individuals of the world puts you in a precarious position. I don't always agree with it but you got to know when to fold em and when to hold em. Any rough pub or macho scene in the world has one. Used to be a far more common sight Australia wide. I don't mind the odd bear they keep some order. I just try and be around them in good light and never wake them.

I am interested in sports psychology in relation to performance. Through learning and exploring branches from this I have seen that a large part of psychology is formed from group and environment traits some what. It is interesting looking at oneself and society in general.

Big wave psychology is an extension of the sports performance being applied and can be related to any individual. Group dynamics individual traits etc is and has been extensively studied in relation to all thing human. It often goes untapped and has many applications throughout society.

Big wave riders seem to harness this psychologically speaking. This makes their whole approach even more fascinating. Kelly slaters mind in often scrutinised by his competitors. Their are many examples but standout athletes tap into it. Pretty crazy. Pretty human. The mind is a powerful muscle. Both with positive a negative vibes. Harnessing those can can lead to excelled performance for most. The art of mind control being applied wether conscious of it or not. Love seeing people tap it and get in the zone surfing or not. An aplication of basic human psyc to the individual. Powerful stuff. Go psyc.

I love learning about and getting into flow state and getting in the zone. Doesn't happen that often anymore though, even in computer games which are designed to target flow state of mind.

Groundswell. Between what you express on swellnet of yourself and your bro. I think you would have enough stories to create something of interest from your side of the fence. You always have a classic story regarding Australian surfing from your experiences. Your writings could be Tales of a surfing life by groundswell. Don't let life pigeon hole you. Keep barking. Not everyone's a character or has a tale.

I also I understand finding the flow can be hard. And some what harder to find when some people really go looking for it. It's not always present or possible to find when needed. But when it is the individual shines. That's half the fun.

Psyc however you wish if you wish. Find the zone where and when it presents. Spiritually and physically. Psyc on

Thanks Rob for the kind words but if i was honest about all my stories some people would get locked up and i would sound like a tosser as some things that have happened just seem too unreal.
Also a lot of my old mates work in the mines now and i wouldn't be able to tell the stories without them losing their careers.
Also im not much of a long book writer, i like posting here because its short posts/stories pretty much.

Camel on the other hand needs to write a book. Wouldn't that be something?

Start feeding off positive people. You are more fortunate than most to live where you do. Many would do anything to have that or the life you have experienced.

Hey Groundswell could you shut the fuck up about the breaks around here. You’ve managed to mention most of them over time when there is absolutely no need and then say your glad there are no cameras. We don’t need them we have you. Your just a blowin so how about a bit of respect

Greenfrog. Good call. We have a couple of clowns over here in the east who love to try and fool us about a particular surf break on a particular island not far from the mainland, using childish pseudonyms to cover the name, they think you are stupid. Yes, you know who you are SA & SD.
