How stoked can you be, howling winds, hardly any swell and no wetty. I tip my hat to you sir
Bloody hell! That's impressive.
@hako: Like I wrote, I tip my hat to you sir. But seriously wtf?
Don't be fooled kids , he just brought a " boardshorts "printed steamer . Ala the type that have printed images on them like Wilko was sporting last year . This version has everything except said boardies in cream skin colour . Gary G got one too , except he ordered his in spray tan orange and sculpted abs .
While we have you online Hako , ( before you head to the snow in the same boardies ) . I'll leave you to defend us on this article .

Fuck I'm a stereotype, don't you just hate it when they get it spot on.
Those waves in the vid were well worth fighting over though.
Pretty crazy to think in the old days, guys down here in Vic use to surf in nothing more than footy jumpers impregnated with wax, with no leggy or a piece of rope with a hanky tied around their ankle.
Now thats hardcore, and it really wasn't that long ago..i mean it was but many of those guys still surf today.
True Indo, but they're riddled with Arthritis and speak with suspiciously high voices.
Yeah, Indo, sounds crazy but true. Before, we figured out to buy divers suits and cut the tails off, a fair solution was to buy a pure woollen jumper but make sure it still had the lanolin in the wool. Much like the impregnated wax in footy jumpers.
A story related to this, when Little Pattie (the 60s Kylie) came down the beach when she was in her teens and saw surfers jumping around a fire on the beach, trying to get warm. This gave her the idea for her song of 'Stompin at Maroubra'.
The start of Australian surf music.
Sounds about right Tones.
I heard when Jim Morrison walked down to the fire sniffing around for a scoob (tightarse never bought his own drugs) he saw little Pattie about to pack a cone and said to her 'C'mon baby light my fire' and she said that's a great name for a song.
And the rest as we know, is history.
Zen...you are having a go ? The 'Stompin at Maroubra' is true ... We could light fires on the beach away from the clubies. Only on cold off shore days.
I don't think Little Pattie and Morrison ever crossed paths !
PS I've got a bottle of Unicorn tears and half a dozen space kittens for sale if you're interested?
Ah, Zen, this one is true. There was a bloke named 'Natch'. He actually went over to Hawaii with Bob Evans, Midget and Bob McTavish back in the 60s. He surfed really well and Evans did get movies of him at Waimea, back in the long board days. Little Pattie came down the beach this cold winters day and saw the surfers around the fire. It was actually Natch that was jumping around after just coming out from the water. Little Pattie related this story to us at a function and she said that when she was catching the bus home, she thought the surfers were crazy and made up the song - 'Stompin at Maroubra'.
Strike me down - fact.
me and a chimp were warming our hands by a fire one day down at phillip island,anyway Trent Reznor walks up ...........
