Hello, Magicseaweed have graciously offered a deal in order to allow Sqirl back on the threads. What is proposed is that 50 users email general@magicseaweed.com and ask for his return, he will then be reinstated with his profile. If you could do that/want him back then please do. One more thing, please don't mention this on the image or news threads as this will break the terms of the deal. Cheers!

BETTY!!!!! how the hell did I run in to u here, on this surf day 1 guys page....I just ran into one of his posts, and thought.....I've seen this f*cker invite a million people for this brilliant vision he had, but what was the outcome? so I just wanted to ask and then BLAMO...it's the dudette.....I think this westport Mike guy had crooked or something? his profile exists but he must be in jail or something?

I'm back.. no jail time... just trying to eek out a living selling beach real estate in this mess of a market. My SURF DAY 1 idea didn't produce many pictures... no traction and our own jan 1 session was blown out so I didn't even get a decent shot here in Westport. If you have any ideas how to make it work let me know. I sent the idea to MS since they have all the right connections but didn't land on the right desk I guess.

Betty Boo"Silent P":) Glad to hear that Mike(No jail or dead), but when I first heard about ur surf day 1 idea, I really did like it....Maybe if a percentage of profit went to charity...How about a Calender that features a shot of a location that's predicted to have good surf during that month, and provides details on good places to stay, rentals, and breaks(Advertising)at the bottom? It's really cool as a member of MSW to know that swell is going to hit somewhere, basicaly tracking, then go on here and see that the locals have uploaded shots of it firing:) predicting the following year is the hard part, but where MSW could help, is by using their photos uploaded, and that months pic could be the highest rated for that month for that predicted location, expected to fire? I was so stoked when I gave money for the Indo tsunami relief and then found out that SURFERS were one of the greatest contributers to charity there! Just feels good.....One of my other favorite charities is Wells for Africa, $200 provides an entire village with a pump and drilled hole....hope this is an alright suggestion and I hope u get through this recession with no worries:) Thanx for responding mike! (btw, I know ur not a f*cker)CHEERS!

Hey Mike, just wanted to let you know that your pictures are awsome and I'm really glad that someone's still posting photos of Westport. There was a while where i didn't see any but yours are great. Keep up the great work!

Hey Mike. Nice pictures! I am looking for one in particular for a project. I want one form Westport, since that is where i do most of my surfing. I would like one that is from the side of the wave (maybe taken from the jetty?) with two waves piling up (the second wave bigger than the first). Got any shots like that? I've got a specific project in mind, and I really wanted to use something local. Thanks.

Gidday Mike, Were you the guy with the Tri pod and zoom on the Jetty Saturday morning (7th Feb) at about 8.00am. My friend who was also taking photos said that a fella got a few good shots and I'm keen to track them down. Cheers and I like your work. Jeremy

Hey Ripcurl Girl... I wrote a while back for some New Years Day pics... you said you send me some later. Any lately? I heard back from a few surfers.. the more I get the better I can make it next year. My wife is from Rio... let me know if you firm up plans for Brazil and I'll see if she can help you in some way.

Hello, Cool initiative! Unfortunatly I only read this now, two weeks to late ;). I went to Spain (Costa de la luz) with new year for surfing and I was in the water on first of January but I only have some scenery pictures from that day. I have only real surfing pics from 4th of January. I posted some of my new pics on the site today (one of the 1st of Jan)... Mabybe next year...

Thanks, but no thanks, since you've already used one of my images without asking permission. What's up with that?
