im sorry but your idea of making a fitness center to get people into surfing and away from the tv is stupid... to get people who are out of shape into surfing show images of out of shape surfers having fun. for what out of shape person would willingly do something where they have been told you "have to be fit" to succeed and have fun... because lets be honest most surfers are not trying to get onto the tour were out there to have fun at our own ability level... if thats 4ft and mushy or crazy barrels at shipsterns bluff, its all fun to some person. also surfing isn't about world domination so back off with this our country is better than yours and have fun.

That looks like an amazing facility and I'm beyond stoked, but a little bummed as well. I was thinking about getting my son into surfing but my local beach community lacks a facility. How do I petition my government for a facility?

Maybe someday an Ozzie will top five titles.

I'm stoked! I would really like to attend training there! In no way do I ever see myself as a world class surfer, but I do want to get on some of the waves we see some of the epic pictures of on this site. Looking forward to when I can afford it!
