hmm i remember him from the TV news surf reports when i lived on the Goldie, from the forum i just had a picture of a very left wing socialist in my head..now that's all ruined.

Please Stunet give me an ignore button for Talking Turkey, Shatners Basoon, Dale Cooper, Factotum, Pupkin, and any new fake profile he decides to create.

It’s strange to put a face to a contributor , but that’s basically what I imagined AndyM would be like. I’ve actually been quite close with how I’ve previously pictured other crew before I’ve met them / seen them.

Indo , I picture you as a relatively quiet and slower spoken fella of medium / lean build and height. Dirty blonde or light brown hair.

I look exactly as you’d imagine....

It's a little disappointing to consider that Indo doesn't have horns (like the avatar). Funny where the mind goes - uplift as Lord Humungus, Gary G as one of his henchmen...
Speaking of Gary, when asked about his pic at the wavepool, I think he steered everyone in the direction of FR's pics - genius level trolling if so!

[NEWS] GC Global Waves Conference
swellnet AndyM makes huge strides towards WSR Legislation.

GC Bulletin... 12th Feb 2020...by Rosemary Ball.
'Landmark Strategy to Protect Surfbreaks for Community'.
{Unedited swellnet crew version.}
The State Govt has signed a "Historic Partnership" with GC WSR to protect the stretch of beach between Burleigh & Snapper Rocks for "Future Generations".
"Hearing from many people they want a bit more security for the Reserve." Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said on the Coast yesterday ahead of the Global Waves Conference.
"Now my Government are actively looking at legislating the WSR in Qld. We want to protect this area for future Generations."
Speaking at Rainbow SLSC yesterday, Qld Premier said the"Whole Beach Amenity" would be considered, including " The Removal of Any Structures " Going into The Water or "NEAR" the WSR.
"We will be looking at all those details at the Conference starting today at Southern Cross University and we will hear about the World's Best Practice on how to go forward. The Community Owns This as well."
WSR Chairman, swellnet's Andrew McKinnon said: " The partnership would stop the stretch of Beach from being used for Rock Concerts, Marinas, & CST's." The Area was declared the 8th WSR in 2016.

Surf Scene with Andrew McKinnon...
* The 12th WSR (Vote on Friday 14th Feb)
* GCCC Meeting with WSR < > Save The Waves
(Oceans & Beaches Management & Strategy + PB Reef + safety / amenity)

PS: tbb points out some of many likely sticking points in GC WSR legislation.

Qld Events : Triathlons, Aussies, Cooly Gold, Operas, Foreshore Gigs/Pubs!
The Rainbow Quarries. (Erosion!) How, When or even if they'll ever be filled.
Dredging during Whale Migration.
Drones are fast biting into restricted WSR No Fly Zones...('Outta Control' already)
Froggies / D'bah Sand Pumps operate outside the WSR...(Oops! Too much!)
WSL stuctures +(Ads) impede the Surf Line & block Snapper's Surfer's access.
The proliferation of WSL Comp leasing of Public WSR Beaches for foreign profit.
Dangerously risk Policing of Tow-ins & Jump off Jetskis in Cyclonic Seas
The choking of Endangered species Reef foraging Habitat.
The Shark Nets & Drum Lines are not on the table.
GC Airport drains PFAS into Cooly Creek...who can stop that?
Reclaimed Currumbin SLSC Parked Cars keep floating away.
Currumbin Boating Channel cuts thru the Alley line.
GCCC Currumbin & Talle Creeks pumps smother WSR "A Frames".
Increased Pump loads will erode upper creek vegetation (Marine Debris)
The pumping of Creek sand to dump out from Burleigh Point!
Burleigh Beach Bar boulders off "Rock Pool Trail" to corrupt tide into WSR.

tbb shows just how monumental a promise of anything is, a huge step forward.

Non Wildcard Flies under Dutto's Radar to win Sydney Open
Unqualified, sweeps aside best ever Oz 1,2,34,5,6,7,8,9,10 (a-z)

Congratulations to Oz Wsl Champ Tyler who was so close to victory.

Weird Double Zero point coincidence.
Leonardo is on OZ leg surf off with (Above) Tyler's Bro for 2020 WSL Qualification.
Only the Oz Leg & Tour may not happen...
2020 WSL #1 Highest Points 1st CS Winner will likely win 2020 wooden spoon.

Carissa is on a Lay Year & is only on tour to score hassle free surf lineups (Privilege!)

Double Dead rubber has nothing to do with Coronavirus makes this the weirdest story of the day.

Pause: Take a breath!

tbb is reading of despair amongst fellow crew mates.
Let it be known, all here feel deeply for your losses as many & varied.
We're in too deep & it's way up to here & rising!

Feel free to tell it how it is, at any time, we'll pitch in to share the load.
Welcome also to new swellnet crew, need help or advice...we got that!
Carry on ripping out them excellent comments, never been better... luv tbb.

Frontline Health Report!
Hot Tip! You won't find 99 people at the Hospital.
tbb visited GC Hospital today (Midday)
Scored #1 Best ever...even closer than disabled [P]
Ok! That sounds like Bullshit...(Swear it's True...like a Boss!)

Walking in was Cool enough ( Hand rub + Q & A)
tbb was the "Only Outpatient" in that whole Ward (Normally Packed of 100's)
Asked WTF...(Staff denied that Outpatients had Cancelled!) That is clearly a lie!
tbb can tell you 99% cancelled at Midday Today & not only in my ward...

tbb went for a stroll & saw empty wards aplenty..
No more than 50 Patients all up for OZ #1 Hospital ?
However 1000's of Staff Queuing in Cafeteria...with all the time in the world.
tbb has heard that good money is on offer for doing...Well! Nothing today! Clearly!

Comm Games Ghost Town all over again...Stay away! Keep Back! Fuck Off!
Well! It's working pretty Good.. turns out sick Aussies aren't so sick, after all!
Perhaps Corona cured every disease known to man?

tbb tried pretty hard to escape along with others trying to get in...No Luck!
Within the Hour... GC Hospital went into Lockdown.
New 40ft barge Pole distance!
One Way In / Out with 1,000 Robot Hand Pumps fingering you..
That's Right! All malfunctioning by the end of the 1st hour...Sorted!

good luck to tbb in hospital & treatment situation, wishing you well
my feeling is outpatient and non essential contact being minimised (edit: forgot that word in original post), which makes total sense
did it really go into lockdown while you were there?

Thanks for kind thoughts velocityjohnno / Blowin...still to weak to surf but OK to swim.
Not Coronavirus...just running the Gauntlet!

Yes! VJ your fairly innocuous question just brought the crew some time.(read on!)

Upfront & 100% Fact! Doctors /Staff : Business as usual...lock in Appointments!

When tbb went in at 11:15am all entries & exits were free of supervision.
There were Outpost Stations for Hand rub...some walked by, no drama!

12:30pm upon leaving all Auto Doors locked tight...myself & others not knowing.
Signs were put up to direct all to the only supervised sanitised Exit / Entry.

At first tbb thought directive came from the PM down, with today's 100 ruling...
Now think that directive came from staff, not wanting cafeteria bugged by ferals.

Staff usually walk over to Stronger Brew Cafe...in the separate [P] precinct.
Today that cafe was absent of Staff! (Put those together & there's the answer!)

Union has most likely banned this outpost Cafe as too risky.
Detoured cafeteria crowd thru sterilised solo entry, protects Staff from an outbreak.
Smart move & really should have been that way from the start...seems fair enough!

So yes a lock down but for Staff Safety & is likely now an interstate Govt procedure.
No doubt will flow onto Larger multi entry facilities to secure a solo Entry / Exit.
Schools are for the most part are One Entry or can be made so easily.

However Mall / Clubs have multi entries & can spread corona quick & easy.
Stricter protocol will also be needed surrounding fresh food Hygiene!

Pause! tbb is saying to wise up! Hospital Cafeteria is serving up a warning! Get it!
Solo Sanitised Entry will be the norm! (Parking Wars / Queues / Bullies etc...)
Note 1-2 Days fresh food is selling out in 1 hr...(Mall is fast becoming a war zone!)
Fagin's child thieves is not out of the question...
