Mr. The Man, if you're so tired of seeing pics from Ireland, get one of your friends to take a couple shots of you next time you're riding a wave like this one, maybe take a trip out to Maverick's, and then post those. Otherwise, just leave off. Surfing is surfing, it doesn't matter where. It's a great wave, a great shot, and an absolutely insane surfer. I know I don't care where the pics come from, good shots are good shots.

I only ride custom shaped spider boards through my local surf retailer. When it arrives I check it over, any hiccups they send it back and take care of everything. Great vibe considering Im in Cape Town and Spider is in Durban. I have 6 custom spiders and only ever-returned two. My latest quad fish went like a bullet in St Francis. Very stoked! If you want a gun over 7ft the guy to talk to is Dave Van Ginkel. He shapes for most of the guys for the RBWA, very good knowledgeable shaper. I have one DVG 8'4 and sick stick!

Super Gu's avatar

Super Gu Sep 29, 2008 Rating: -3

The same can be said for Al Merrick, Wayne Lynch, Eric Arakawa, the list of legendary shapers making mass produced boards is big but hopefully most surfers understand this. Go custom and support your shaper.

Another useless fact!!!---In Jimi Hendrix's song "Third Stone from the Sun," he ad-libs "You'll never hear surf music again." He later explained he wasn't dissing the genre, but had mistakenly heard Dick Dale had died. Dale is still alive , although of course Jimbo isn't.

I actually have to admit, for anybody who is a regular visitor to these forums, the light bulb anecdote was pretty amazing. Super Gu, to borrow a phrase from my time in Australia, Good on ya mate. It wasn't an indictment of any particular nation (until the whole "nation renowned for not getting irony" thing. You were talking about France there, right? Kidding). It was just a commentary on how ridiculous these forums can get, regardless of where anyone comes from or what the picture is of. Sick shot, sick surfer, sick wave. That's all.

Hey Super Gu, before you lob insults at an entire nation worth of people, it's best to make sure you actually understand the language that you use. i·ro·ny - the use of words to convey a meaning that is the opposite of its literal meaning. There was nothing ironic about your light bulb joke; it just wasn't funny mang.

It is O.K. to be gay. Some of the finest men I know are gay. I suggest you get some help and I wish you the best in your sexual awakening.

There is no way on this Earth ...that he paddled into that.....unfortunately the speed of the wave would have had something to say about that haha......but hey he got the ride anyway so what the hell.....cudos to the man with big cohoonas.

Fuck Me. That should keep the tow in critics of Lahinch quiet. Am I right in guessing he has paddled in? Its amazing to see stuff like this in Northern Europe. It just goes to show that the recognition of surfing and big waves to parts of the world is relative to exposure. Good on ya lads, you've got bigger balls than me.
