SOME BOARDS #6: This was a 6'5" board that @waynelynchsurfboards made for me. I wanted something that in today's surf language is called a step-up. I called it a sort of semi-gun. It wasn't meant for serious surf, just a little extra board for when it got decent. Good luck getting a board from Wayne these days as unfortunately, they have become near impossible to get. I sold this one and whomever got it scored. #thisisaustralia #postoftheday #photooftheday #surfing #surf #photography #Instalike #surfingworld #picoftheday #waves #boards #travel #travelpic #travelphoto #28daysoflove #travelphotography #australia #australianshapers #instagood #visualsoflife #Instasurf #surfboards #ocean #surfboard #surfingphotos #instasurf #cooltravelpix #someboards #magicboard

Time for some bike porn. Another angle of the first Pegoretti I owned. Duende model in white 'Somebody' paint scheme. Was initial build, hadn't been ridden, not even bottle cages fitted yet. #dariopegoretti #themonthoflove #pegoretti #duende #italian #bike #cycling #roadbike #handmadebike #roadcycling #pedaltothemetal #whyiride #liveyours #lifebehindbars #cyclingphotos #cyclinglife #fromwhereiride #roadslikethese #outsideisfree #whereiride #picoftheday #photooftheday #steelbike #steel #28daysoflove #metalmtnbuild

TC Gita delivered days of incredible swell to the East Coast of Australia a few days back. I was gone already but I got emails, I saw the IG posts, saw photo after photo of insane waves. I had heard about the jet skis buzzing the lineup. Fairly routine nowadays sadly. Then I stumbled upon this from @happilystoked. It's one thing for spoiled pros getting ferried around the lineup and dropped into wave after wave whilst the paddlers are simply rorted. Then there's this dangerous effort reportedly compliments of a well known Gold Coast shaper. I can remember when days like this surfers took on the challenge, not take the challenge out of it. #gita #tcgita #kirra #coolangatta #goldy #goldcoast #surfing #surf #surfboard #videooftheday #waves #cycloneswell

POV #1: For probably over a decade Luke Short dedicated himself making boards for a then unknown kid who for legal reasons shall remain nameless. Shaped them for free and paid for the materials and glassing out of his own pocket. When said kid hit the ‘big time’ and signed a major $ contract, a place which he got to riding equipment largely furnished by LSD, he pretty much never thought about throwing Luke some cash for all the years of free boards and support. Let’s just say five grand isn’t much when you just signed a multi-million dollar contract. I can only think of 2 shapers in modern times that made a significant amount of money from surfboards and Luke isn’t one them. Partner and three children, mortgage, grocery bills, the lot. Just like you and me. From my perspective, it wasn’t the money part, it was that it was simply taken for granted, apparently.Meanwhile in more recent times Noa Deane had been getting boards from Luke under the radar and his new sponsorship freed him to have LSD logos displayed. He recently silenced all doubters with his performance at Pipeline in both the Backdoor Shootout and Volcom Pipe events. I met he and him mum years ago and they are lovely, genuine people and his dad was a standout on those Coolangatta sand bottom points in the era of Michael Peterson, Rabbit, PT and dozens of other exceptional surfers. Shaping talent + surfing talent = this kind of surfing.

A @lara_in_lalaland inspired post. Prawns, Tofurky Italian style sausage, potatoes, sweet corn cut into pieces in a sauce of butter, garlic (lots), chili powder, Teriyaki sauce and Caesar salad dressing (improvised) baked and delicious! #food #recipe #meal #foodporn #photooftheday #cooking #chefmode #healthy #photography #Instalike #surfingworld #picoftheday #travel #travelpic #travelphoto #28daysoflove #travelphotography

Desert Tortoise in motion and as I recall hungry. The official reptile of California and Nevada. They outlive most humans. But I could run faster. By the way he's happier than he appears in the photo. #desert #deserttortoise #reptile #pets #photooftheday #picoftheday #outsideisfree #cooltravelpix #instapic #instalike #travel #travelpic #travelphotography #natgeo #tortoise #animals #28daysoflove #wildlife #nature #bonzertortoise

I posted this awhile back and in the wake of yet another school shooting with an assault rifle in the US, the 18th so far this year, I'm reposting it: "It was times like these when I thought my father who hated guns and had never been to any wars was the bravest man who ever lived." - Harper Lee #guns @hodaddy_surf #america #trump #trumpdontsurf #crazy #therevolutionwillbetelevised #photooftheday #picoftheday #photography #schoolshooting #world #instalike #instadaily #photo #insanity #life #peace #think #war #commonsense #quoteoftheday #quotes #usa #boycottnra #politiciansownedbythenra #28daysoflove

Why not invite them in for lunch? Any seal that can bodysurf a boat wake this well deserves a meal.

SOME BOARDS #5: This was a magic board. Even with the shaping machines of today, all boards are not the same. What makes a board magic isn't necessarily that they are 'perfect.' I've had some where one side of the planshape was different to the other; blank had a twist in it; one rail had more thickness, etc. I've had quite a few magic ones from Rod @dahlbergsurfboards over time and never, ever a bad one. Today is his birthday so it seemed apropos. Happy Birthday Raad. #thisisaustralia #postoftheday #photooftheday #surfing #surf #photography #Instalike #surfingworld #picoftheday #waves #boards #travel #travelpic #travelphoto #28daysoflove #travelphotography #australia #nsw #instagood #visualsoflife #Instasurf #surfboards #ocean #surfboard #surfingphotos #Instasurf #cooltravelpix #someboards #magicboard
