such a pointless argument, yeah so what if south africa often has better, more or warmer waves? why else do you think some british guys created MSW in the first place?

seems like i pissed on a few people batery's so here is my reply, First of all what kind of F%kin name is Archibald Grunt$%&k, so i wont even reply to you... C*ck. second, where did i say anyhting about i want to see pics of slater throwing spray. I do not have to see pics, i merely attend the Billabong in j bay every to see it in real life for myself. like the otehr dude said, raw surfing, how about raw of guys in spots other than england. and to the guy that said SA doesnt not have waves, we have 2 of the most perfect right hand point breaks in the world within 30km's of eachothr. J bay and Bruces. Guess england is trying hard to carve itself a 'niche' in the surfing world... still fickle and shit. Ireland thats a different story all together my man..

Bang on. Gustav - try to take note of this one, otherwise you may end up a small minded bitter old man. Or maybe you already are?

Gustav, you seem to think that your location near great waves means that you yourself are better than others by mere association. I'll simplify this for you. You just happen to live near these great waves. This is unfortunate for the rest of the surfing world, as you are devaluing the goods by your presence. Besides this, every spot has its day. When Elands is breaking like this photo shows, you paddle out. I've been skunked more on J-bay surf trips than any missions in Europe. Perhaps you need to see a little more of the world. Perhaps it's better if you just stay where you are, in your little cocoon. Did you not notice that after the Billabong pro, the surfers head off to another location that is not in South Africa? The world is big and full of amazing waves that you'll never get to surf. You shall however be able to leave inane comments next to images of them on msw.

Gustav is just mad because after purchasing ExtenZe, it only brought him up to 3 inches.. He was promised 4!!!

methinks Gustav is a little upset about something or other. Otherwise why all the negative output? Is it cock size? Ridiculous name? Living in someone else's country unwanted? Either way - just a weird attitude man. Peace

Gustav. When you are in a hole, stop digging. Alternatively keep digging until you disappear and the rest of us can get on with enjoying the site. If you want a site which focuses on all your favourite places, then set it up, run it and stop looking at MSW. Alternatively, use your skills in what may be your most proficient form of surfing and Google other sites that more suit your tastes. Thankyou and goodnight. .

Gustav sugest you get your Camera out take a few cracking shots of the locals and post em up on good old MSW. Or you could just shut up.

Gustav, English surf gets little if any recognition in the worlds surfing media, one British website posts more pics of British waves than SA ones and you complain, mental. Go back to line up and alienate yourself from everyone with your Saffi accient, over aggressive attitude and shonky attempts to stand up by drop kneeing.

Gustav, just be quiet. you're giving respectable, friendly and intelligent south african surfers a bad rep. if you don't like MSW then you do have ZigZag, the bomb surf and plenty other south african publications to subscribe to....

Have you been a total bellend all your life, or is it something you picked up recently? If you've got so much beef with the photos that hit the front page then go to; 'select surf report' and choose the photos you want to view you giant cockgobble.

I find the same old pics of Indo, Hawaii etc boring as. For me, a shot like this one says alot more than a shot of slater throwing some spray in Bali. This is the real deal here... raw surfing

HAHAHA GUSTAV, go find something better to do and stop slating the shot you grumpy fuck ! croydes a sick wave and also alot of other waves around britain are sick, just cause we dont have the clear water and warm climate which looks nice on a photo obviously shows your a photo slut and dont respect the reality of the photo(s) !

Any one can create their own Photoshop fantasy, it all begins with a photo. Want warm, clear water? there's an app for that. I would also suggest you consult KIMBALINOS on the fine art of "jugster position adjustment". Hope this information has been useful to you, keep your shutter finger active, and stay happy!

gustav you are probably right. BUT. we love surfing as much as you and go through a lot more shit to do it than you ever would. you very rarely hear us complaining of the cold we just get on with and do the best with what we got. I have no axe to grind on MSW's behalf or anything, but what responsibility do they have to only show exotic locations? you want better images then put some up or shut the fuck up.

bro, so tired just seeing pics mostly of england and the surroundings over the last month or so. Are the people running this site from the UK maybe??? do i detect a possible conspiracy???? compare these pics to pics of INDO, Hawaii, South Africa, Australia, Fiji, France, South America and there you have your answer. You cannot compare,, ever. The place is F%kin cold, inconsistent and fickle. it all looks the same to me... enough of england somemore of the rest of the world... please...

here's another couple of pics from england and the surrounding areas, i think they might compare to most of the countries you've stated, not sure though so let me know what you think eh. http://magicseaweed.com/photoLab/viewPhoto.php?photoId=196430&browseSession=b510c5fe5f836318bd142f71ea931d8d&photoOfTheDay http://magicseaweed.com/photoLab/viewPhoto.php?photoId=158610&browseSession=604cb5ca56c8ddd6dea4068d263b1233 http://magicseaweed.com/photoLab/viewPhoto.php?photoId=172559&browseSession=28fb1e5c794d0f02f277b3ae3be323bb

The worst thing about surfing in England is all the Saffers complaining about the waves.
