Top notch capture Gary. Its been on all week buttho not as hollow as usual. When it was the right tide I saw it opening up way more than usual and some of the sets it didn't pinch out as much as it usually does. I'm on at Matt about hitting it with me. TK and Graham never want to go over to it :(

sorry, was just thinking... you were talking to me, yeah? I think Tk, Graham, Ray, Hubb, Hardy, Slater and the girls may be interested if you can prove that it's worth their while. But by previous experience, they've pretty much written it off, and I guess I have too. But, i'll give it a lash again if you're really keen, for a board caddy that is, and you can have priority on pretty much any wave that comes in though.

Dear Papa, I really must give you my number, don't want you to have to contact me via MSW anytime you want me for a surf - esp. if the spot in you have in mind is the monstrosity above. If so, im more than likely going to make various excuses, personally, I feel a bit weird doing all that over such a public media [worried 'Mantis' might confuse this with censorship, or even worry that I have a sinister motive for discussing surf, on a surfing website. excuse the dig mate ;-) ]. That said, if you go in then I probably will too... just cause

Surely one of the best shots ever on msw for the massive debate it has provoked...quite apart from the intensity of the shot itself (bigup gary). Id love to get everyone who's commented on this pic into the line-up out here on a day like this...at the same time.... then we'd see the debate quieten down a bit i reckon!!

Its a little better than that... 'take off' is more of a drop into which if you hold the rail you will be encased in a super heavy keg.. if you make that before it pinches then you are the man. Pure money-shot wave but most deffo surfable.. and its still sketchy at 2-3ft.

You see unlike you yankee doodle dandies (who coincidentally started this whole melle in the first place by being so well liked worldwide) we British tend to accomplish our tasks and unlike you drips across the pond we don't bail when it gets tough we dont have hollywood to settle the score you see. As for the muslims in Indonesia smiling at you of course they are you dumbass they will get more money from you that way. I hear there is an especially warm welcome in Bali especially in the nightclubs!!!. As for your brother getting a PHD in M A T H E M A T I C S (it is a hard word to spell in its entirity) I persume he gained this from an American University.....lol...what did he like...have to like do...uh like count all the way from like zero to like ten or something...WOW he must be like super weiseneimer.

As for me being narrow minded I never once have been involved In the murder of my fellow human beings and I have never profited from this process as for being in the military I have played all the conflict series and call of duty as well. I have never once encouraged a little child to push a wheel barrow packed with explosives up to a group and blow themselves up prick.

yes, just like the law of gravity and other laws in science. however there are very powerful, wealthy and influential men that are often behind a lot of political decisions that would rather we not think such things.

Seriously .... you need to read up on evolution. Humans and apes have a common ancestor. It's a different thing entirely. Evolution is no longer a theory. It's a law.

cheers and yes, I thought the greyskull comment was funny. thanks for the chuckle. and if you (or anyone else)is influenced not to right their comments bcs they might offend someone, then I might miss out on more chuckles. some people need to get a sense of humor, or at least be tolerant of other's humor

on a positive note, speaking of indo, go to the sheraton singiggi hotel on lombok. there is a epic point break right out in front that peals both left and right. every morn and arfo it is 4 to 6 foot just like clock work with head high barrels. and thats just with the changing tides. bigger on swells. and know one knows about it except for a few locals that work in the hotels and they cant surf but they are very eager and friendly. thats what i think about keeping secrets

whateverdude, there is nothing good about war. and it is even worse when people are dying for false reasons. I support the troops, and thats why I say bring them home. no more of our boys need to die. let the middle east sort out their own sh*t. they've been at it for centuries. It is mud in our moms eyes our young men die for money, oil, and religion. not patriotism.

dear halfwit, A/ I was in the u.s. navy in the first gulf war. I worked in the hospital as a lab tech on the marine base. I have been down in the morgue. does that give me the right to comment as you put it? have you been in the military during war? you don't need to tell me about war and dead bodies. furthermore my brother has a PhD in math and worked on the bombing campaign during the last invasion of Iraq. he reported directly to rumsfeild. I wont go into detail but he was flown in and out of Iraq and you have no idea what he saw and what was really going on. I do. B/ the west is full of amazing and wonderful people. the vast majority of us are cool. I never said we are evil, those are your words. It is some of our leaders, just like in the middle east, that don't give a rats arse about our friends and family. if you think bush , Cheney , wolfowitz, Pearle and their counterparts care about you and me, well you need to come back from fairytale land. let me guess, you still think the current Iraq war is about finding weapons of mass destruction? liberating the people? C/ my wife is an Indonesian Muslim (I'm christian) and I spend many months a year in indo. Im going again on Thursday. guess what, when I'm in indo amongst all those evil Muslims, they smile and say apa cabar(hi, how are you?). and I just got back from surfing Vietnam (underrated, excellent beach breaks) 2 months ago. and they are communist!OH NO! they want to kill me too! stop being such a close minded stupid wuss boy and get out there and experience life for yourself. not what your told life is. peace. Matt, where did you get this guy?

actually I never attacked god. again those are your words.my spiritual believes are exactly that,-mine. I attacked censorship. if the readers of this site don't want his or any one's comment, they will vote it negatively. it is not solely your role to say what and what isn't acceptable. you see there IS a big difference contrary to what you said. if you were to say how great god is, I would not tell you that this is not the place to say such things and then solicit discussion about my believes on my own email. and thanks for the invite, but why on earth would I want to hear your believes. I have more important things to do like watching paint dry. oh, and now let me mask the true intent of the comment with a note about the wave-to compare this to shippies is like comparing a the common cold to the e bola virus

he brought up God first, i invited him for a discussion off site, you're welcome too, anyone is. Would like to answer your rant by email or any other media, but I'm guessing you won't bother contacting me either, and that's you're call, nobody's forcing a thing, just an invite. But you boys attacking belief in God on this forum is exactly the same thing as me presenting a positive case - except I haven't even done that, out of respect for the primary purpose of the site. Watched that wave doing pretty much exactly the same today, madness. My friend paddled over on the booger, but... decided against taking any at the peak, don't really blame him - look at it! not really even a wave

ah yes, fox holes. its a good thing I have god with me in my fox hole says the soldier. Wait, how did I end up in this fox hole? Oh, now I remember, our religion is better than their religion, so we must kill them until they understand our religion is better than their religion. one way or another they will accept our religion. and as far as commenting on the photos, no longer will we allow religious groups to dictate what we say. those days are done sir. and this is not a site for religious discussion are your words, no one else's. YOU invited kiwi to discuss religion. my house is not a church, but the J.Ws and mormons still come. and atheistic evolution doesn't explain everything? well so far its doing a pretty good job. or should we go back to believing the sun revolves around the earth?

Matt Wright's avatar

Matt Wright Jan 23, 2009 Rating: -4

i did guess it was your opinion, and as for evolution... there's lots of evolutionists, and practicing scientists who are Christians, but honestly, atheistic evolution doesn't answer all the hard questions about ultimate origins. Email me, im reluctant to dscuss on this site, but happy to interact through that email i gave earlier. I might not be able to answer every question, but im convinced I can show you that it's not intellectual suicide to be a Christian. And you're welcome too squirl, but you're prob way too busy patrolling every comment and every previous stream on this entire site ;-) is it your job?

sqirl's avatar

sqirl Jan 23, 2009 Rating: 0

Then how do you explain what happened before evolution? hunhhhhhhhhhh? why cant evolution go hand in hand with spirituality?.....in every religious text there are numerous metaphors for evolution! How do you think people 2000+ years ago explained such concepts....they didnt have CSI? I dont care either way...I am an agnostic, methodist, taoist...with a slight intrigue into judaeism....and that hindu god with all the boobs.

sorry if I confused you, but i was just taking you up on the assertion that there was no God, and also suggesting that this site isn't right place for that sort of chat, and so i gave my email in case you wanted to respond. I also commented on the wave, as I'm a local. Is that any better?

Kiwi John's avatar

Kiwi John Jan 23, 2009 Rating: 2

Matt Wright's avatar

Matt Wright Jan 23, 2009 Rating: -5

pretty big assertion there kid, not many of your kind in fox holes - and I'd say you'd nearly be better off in a fox hole than take that lip/lips/whatever that is on the head. If you want to discuss further, email me - this site isn't an atheistic or Christian forum. rightmatt@gmail.com Not many surf 'the Blin' as it's known locally, you can probably see why. Someone made a comparison to shipsterns, but as far as i can see, shipsterns actually has a barrel, a hideous barrel, but a barrel nonetheless...where exactly are you supposed to be on this thing? And I have surfed it [smaller] a bunch of times, it's not as bad then
