dbah so crowd - good manners don't do any good here you still get faded by homie kookss who think they are b all. I seen a new generation after the last one with one or two hot shots but not as many as b4. They are in for a surprise being one of the b all crowd. ha. anyway lackeys not good icould whip in my sleep. judges are just kooks and its too hard to judge surfing anyway specially if you can't surf more so. ilive here for a while and its never good just some hollow closeouts and lots of dropins. as for the super bank it doesn't look like comming back for ages but hopefully kirra lives up to its repuation of having barrels. andy mac surf reporter for gold coast reckons it used to barrel. so who knows. I reckon it used to break the same just only in big swells when the tide was out. hopefully it was even more legendary than the superbank was in full flight.

RE: matt lackey - Its well known that surfers can paddle up to 15 km/h while bodyboards can only reach 9km/h. If youre getting blocked by boogers, you should learn how to paddle.

matt lackey - this matt lackey guy says he drop knees pits here all the time. i think he means he drops to his knees for knob here all the time. half the aggro caused at this place is by body boarders a.k.a kiddy wrigglers. they dont sit in the line-up they use blocking action on everyone. that is the main cause of aggro. sit and wait for the waves where the surfers do. you have flippers anyway so its not hard to get a wave.
