PRESS RELEASE:
Equiwhore Industries are proud to announce their latest environmental initiatives. Our sponsorship of the Quokka Soccer League has caused great excitement at FUX Media who have joined with us to purchase the broadcast rights from the Federal Government for 50c and an $8 billion dollar contribution to the Retired Parasites Superannuation Scheme. After decades of lobbying on your behalf we can announce an annual Koala hunting season of 11 months, starting tomorrow. Remember only the Equiwhore Magnabore 666 has the power you need to knock them right out of the tree. This year's the bag limit is only 5000, which will be a great disappointment to many, but we will continue our fight to obtain justice for the koala koalition. Early season reports from the Southern Ocean though provide better news. Harpooning has never been easier or more fun with the new fully automatic rapid fire harpoon attached to the Equiwhore Autocetacean Locator. Thar she blows! Ha ha ha. Oh yeh thar she blows! They pop like an over-inflated B-Double tyre at 100k on the highway when one of those mini-nuke explosive heads hits 'em!

But most exciting of all, Equiwhore have negotiated the rights to Astrosurf the entire Indonesian archipelago, from the Mentos Islands to Barley. No more coral cuts kiddies, a soft landing everytime on Equiwhore's patented Astrosurf. Made from the finest crap at the bottom of the fractionating tower, yes the very same stuff that next seasons's artificial snow will be made from. Imagine that! What a boon to surfers, all that sharp, scrapy, nasty coral gone, just pure, soft, white Astrosurf, with an underlay of the soft, impact absorbing Bouncystuff, made from the finest fresh baby seal blubber set in a mesh framework of superflex nanoasbestos fibres.

Now to this ridiculous notion that Big Oil Don't Surf. Of course they do!

PRESS RELEASE
The entire Equiwhore management group recently had a wonderful day at The KP Rancho. We are all surfers now! Cowabunga Batman show us your air reverse! Make mine a triple concave! We are all fully stroked and ready to get barfled. Hang five Dude!

And Australia, we are coming your way. The Great Australian Bite is going to waste. No oil spills, no plastics, and sharks, oh yes lots of sharks. And people surf in those conditions. Oh the fear! But don't worry, not for long. Our plan is to install an entirely new shark free ecosystem. The key aspect is to get rid of the fish. We think a regime of randomly timed oil releases from our 300 drilling platforms could be expected to achieve this within a few months. Shark-free surfing for the first time! This is our vision for the future, a completely bland surfing experience in a chemically stimulating environment all controlled from Equiwhore's HQ far far away in another hemisphere.

BB good to see you only vilify , those BIG religions that don't suffer from vilification , so you take the mantle upon yourself to be head Vilifier ...and correct the injustices that you perceive as being unjust , which for a Latte drinking white fella that lives in a Penthouse , is really understandable ...
I know you wouldn't understand the whole reason behind me saying , Pedophilia is a white mans disease........I could say that OK , Whiteman colonialists were the distributors for pedophilia , which brought salvation to the indigenous tribes of the world....but then philosophically......if you don;t believe in God , do you believe in the Big Bang Theory and evolution......which means we are all the same race of people who came from Africa , so how can there be racism ??

I could mock you for being a sell out, promoting surfing across the globe for your own financial benefit with total disregard for the vast majority of surfers, living the high life in Europe, hanging out with surf celebrities for a bit of reflected glory and be way more accurate than you were about me.

Just got off the beach after a big arvo/evening on some thumper whiting and bream . Awesome sunset, and brilliant star show.
Going back to an earlier query from Guy Smiley about losing bait in a car ? Beats my mind , but they call my beast 'the trawler' for some reason. The seagull shit gets annoying but that's life. There are places in there a Hazmat team wouldn't go near.
Some of the melted console / glovebox wax contains things that would probably need carbon dating .
My rear bumper is often used on the beach as a cutting board , and just after getting my tyres replaced last month, the mechanic told me he had the apprentice gerni the conglomerate of sand , pipi shells, worms, pilchard heads and dried squid that was stopping my tailgate from working properly . legend

Now them some damn fine insults for a Sunday morning and shows how far you are removed from reality , especially when you start bagging my persona relative to yours.....you sound like an old jealous wannabe who has been constantly rejected by parts of the Surf Industry ,probably should have tried something real , like being a surfer shaper , so you could rip off the vast majority of surfers wit total disregard , live a high life in Europe ( Amsterdam?) and be reflected in the glory of surf celebs....so you too could be a nearly celeb.......

Sharkman, do you view questioning the reality of Jesus vilification? Or even indirect commentary that implies Jesus, God, or any other figures or deities don't really exist is vilification?

https://theconversation.com/why-australia-needs-a-religious-discriminati...

"Religious vilification is behaviour that incites hatred, serious contempt for, or revulsion or severe ridicule of a person or group of people because of their religion. Only three states – Victoria, Queensland and Tasmania – currently prohibit religious vilification."

Vilification in regards to law in Queensland for example:

https://www.adcq.qld.gov.au/resources/brochures-and-guides/fact-sheets/v...

Interesting.

facto , no I do not judge anyone who is really questioning the reality of Jesus , there is certainly enough proof to say he did exist......but making fun of or using humor to put down anyone who believes , well , we all believe/have faith in man made concepts such as race and religion...BB only seems to believe race is not the same as religion , which I find very narrow minded and hence BB very shallow and a bit one dimensional.....he also see's the need to make jokes etc about believers ...

I read the links you posted , very interesting to see how much division there is with Religious vilification , and passing new legislation to protect minorities , but at the same time also protecting the 30% of Australians who believe there is no God , which I think covers a lot of the people here on SNet.....who are a minority of non-believers , but seem to revel in insulting believers......would be a bit like me claiming pedophilia is a whiteman's disease...some people still haven't got why I made that statement!

Hi Facto , it's so easy to use someone like Pell to justify your opinion on Religion/God , when in fact he is a minority ....so for me to use pedophilia as a whiteman 's disease , it's the same logic BB and others use to justify their disbelief in God.....just use one example or extrapolate an opinion based on a very very small sample of perpertrators !
Like judging all whitemen on a white supremacist 's killing of muslims in NZ...

Well, I have been published in Surfing World, Tracks, Waves, Surfing, Surfer, Scientific American and The Sydney Morning Herald. Plus three books and bits and pieces here and there for other people's projects. Not sure what the count is on Swellnet, but quite a few! Not a bad CV for a part timer. Oh and along the way I have received a lot of positive feedback from a range of surfers, writers and publishers. Of course I have always had the knack of pissing people off from time to time but it has been amazing how often over the years I ended up having a laugh with them over a couple of beers. Might even happen to you yet

Ladies and gentlemen, Blindboy's just played a lovely approach shot, very deep with plenty of slice and the ball's kept very low down near the baseline.
The question is, can Sharkman compose himself to attempt a passing shot or will he be forced to hoist up a hail-mary defensive lob?

What was the subject of the textbook ?

We all know Sharkman ‘s Hail Mary.....Curren’s cutty photo on the logoless board.

At the apex of the parasitic rag traders usurpation of surfing it was a glance behind the curtain . The stark realisation that all that was required to conduit amazing surfing was a great surfer and a great shaper.

The brand of clothes and the 2 cent sticker on the nose of the board were superfluous bullshit.

Not Sharkman’s doing - bugger tried to sell the Norwest to shift a few units - but he builds the single essential item to surf.
