Yep,same here DW,I wore the quickie checks for years until old man fat gut put an end to that.It kept in tune with my punk day's ( Lacey you were there ) so shut up I was frothing when they came back in vogue two years ago. Short checked boardies still wear them every surf.

For the record dropped 15 kgs from my fat day's,now I look like an unfit old football player with all the old nagging injuries

Unbelievable!! I am so jealous, I was there for two three hour sessions on sups in early August. Surfed Wilkes and Namotu left. In fact I think you came out for a paddle with the three of us. (I recognise the chequers and the go pro). Anyway it was enough to just give me a taste for it, I have been dreaming ever since about going back. I cannot imagine how good it is to stay there for a month??? Well actually, I can now, because these photos show just how good it is! How much does it actually cost to stay there??

Great shots. Looks like you had an absolute ball. Love those shots of Cloudbreak. Very jealous as I have always wanted to surf there. Ripping on the SUP - can not wait for the LowPressure production.

It does not look it was very crowded at all from those shots.
