@HOTBUTTEREDSURF

@surfrideraus with the help of local community groups, hosted a protest day in Torquay over the weekend. That headland in the distance is Winkipop / Bells. Incredibly proposed sonic blasting of the ocean floor, in a search for oil and gas, is planned for the ocean country south of Bells, the Twelve Apostles, west of King Island, and Tasmania. See ‘Southern Blast’ on YouTube for more info. Imagine the damage blasting will do to the ocean floor, and all sea creatures within earshot…  sound can travel thousands of kms under water! If there is oil, imagine a spill and the effect on this iconic surfing coastline! I went to Bells 21 years straight, had a win that helped build the foundation of my life in surfing! Driving out to Bells (the morning of) reminded me of some very special moments. Along with @surfriderfoundationsurfcoast , I would like to see this awesome coastline preserved into the future for all to enjoy! I can only hope the efforts of so many at the protest will prove to be positive in stopping the stupidity of this insane proposal. TF
Bang : @heathwalker07 past the vertical / old print … magazines … solid, a more material way of seeing, feeling what has gone before. Where images seem to have a vibrancy, texture, maybe it’s memories. A ‘vinyl to CD’ kind of thing. Nutty did the Tour for a few years, funny how a surfer’s best is mostly never in a contest singlet. A shot like this records the apex of an arc, a split second position an eye may not even register.  The difference between first, last?
@veteadavid took the chopped square shape to the outer rims at Jeffreys (cutback carves) and Ha'piti (vertical backhand) - see the Vetea Collection on the HotButteredChannel ... Originally built with side bites and single fin, Poto ramped up on a set of my wide based tri-fins. A surfboard's a surfboard, a surfboard ... but take a closer look inside : nose v to single concave, to spiral v with double concave through the tail. weight forward : accelerate, weight back : hip/ankle turns, transitions. Wing to shorten the rail arc for breaking tracks, flat rocker and area to run the flats. Mix and add colour, and look again : wild horses, phoenix flare, wave action. Surfboards can be so much more ... and so much less!

Does anyone even draw this line anymore?
