In semi lockdown I'm finally sorting through a lifetime of photos and inspired by what Craig and Andy recently posted I thought why not.
We travel a fair bit and there has to be some crackers in the vaults.
Good if we follow the Swellnet tradition of not naming or being too obvious.

Nice one Mugs. Curious though re above. I thought you had to choose "BB code full linked"
Does HTML image work also?

Early 80's when twinnies were all the rage my old man asked if I wanted to take his 7'2" Larry Levin single fin out for a spin. I'm glad I did.

I had to get Stu to put mine up.

Or am I the only one who can’t see YS’s photos ?

Blindboy...why have you gone from forehand at Padang to forehand at OTW /Backdoor ?

Don’t tell me you’re switch ?

My missus already said that we look similar.

Dad ?

Pupkin, yes that’s Rabbit at OTW, though the angle makes me think it could have been Backdoor. 77/78. I spent four months there. Plenty more where that came from!

BB, question if you get this- years ago Weetbix included cards of sportspeople ana believe it or not there's a pic of Rabbit at backdoor or maybe OTW. I still have the card in a photo album at home. it's very similar to that one above.

Did you by chance sell or take a pic on behalf of Sanitarium? Would have been early 80's. Pretty trippy if you did.

I might have posted this pic before?...but its one of my fav pics taken about 15 years ago.

Ive never seen the ocean more glassy than this day.

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 possible zen but more likely to be one of Peter Crawford's as he was doing a lot of stuff for the ad agencies while I did vefry little. Everyone was shooting the same waves from the same angle so you would have to superimpose it to be sure.

No worries Guy. I don't have much else of Lopez though.

Some randoms from solo maroc/eurotrip back in the day. Not very good photo value but good memories.

#1 my bed first night in euro after taking ferry from Morocco. Unfortunately the only pics I have are two cruddy ones of Marrakech and zilch from Taghazout (spent whole time surfing and spraypainting the loo).
#2 Polish drunk food in Krakow. Better than a kebab and more variety. So friggin good. Close second would be the kebabs in Berlin.
#3 Before social distancing was a thing (Budapest)
#3 Battlescars. Belgrade.
#4 grainy Sarajevo in the afternoon light. Very pretty place.
#5 back alley in Kings Landing, Croatia
#6 sod it, do as the locals do.
#7 does he, LOOK, like a BITCH!?

nah....yeah...but, nah

Speaking of pandemics and such, how's this church outside of Prague?

Plague? That's not a plague!

One time I was flying across Oz and was engrossed in that sweetest of pastimes, the free inflight drinks / movie* combo , when I opened the window blind and saw that coast . Couldn’t for the life of me figure out where I was for a few moments.

It’s fucken huge !

* A- Team reboot starring Bradley Cooper. Even free beers served by a happily obliging, blonde beauty couldn’t get it beyond a 5/10 experience.

Ahhh that also sounds familiar. We were told crays in/around there somewhere too.

I must've missed the signage about radiation! Probably too concerned about getting a NRB...
