    Nice, man! I like the surf machine... I just switched up from short board to fun shape (getting older with back problems, + extra 20 lbs!) but I still hit it all the time! Weird not being able to snap the board around - different kind of ride...but still great.

    Where do you live, and where's the picture from?

    The waves are choppy/sloppy today, and my local beach is DEEP from them moving sand - they killed the good break (last picture on the bottom - South side of the Inlet), but up the road is Lake Worth Pier, which is probably solid waist to chest high slop, but I'll get wet anyway. says "Sea Lice"...oh well...usually OK with no wetsuit or rashguard.

    Nice Bikes, BTW! :)

    Sweet! How's the weather down under? It's about 85 degrees today...20 knot wind...nice day...I'll play in the chop later, I least get some exercise and get my 11 year old out there with me.

  5. Great looking bike black... My brother lives in Byron Bay. He is 60 something and still surfs every day. I would love to ride AU. I have been to Sydney and have been as far north as Hawks Nest where he had a place, as well as in Sydney, Beautiful country. Enjoy and be safe......

    That red bike's a beaudy Blackmarkus. The big spoiler on the rear help stop the bike fishtailing at speeds over 300mph!
    Only joking - she's just the ticket for going to the beach.
