Being a slave in the US clearly was a very unpleasant exsistance.

I'm knocking out songs left, right and centre on my IPAD tho my mates have been less than complimentary, jealous I think. Some good synths on garageband for 2.99 :shock:

I like surftheblogs because you can find cool information there. On the other hand I'm also interested in most topics that have to do with buying a sailboat because it's fun to have a sailing experience most especially if it's your own.

I'd never heard much about it in Ireland/UK, but its pretty big round these parts, I guess because of the ideal climate for growing stuff year round. The open space and sunshine does make it much easier to live self sustainably, however the "pioneer" Bill Mollinson developed the concept in Tassie, which is a pretty sim ilar climate to the UK. There have been claims of systems set up in the Arctic circle, deserts etc etc. I'm really getting into the Earthship homes. Sounds wanky but really smart designs, and reckon we'll see a lot more of them in the future:

Cheers Archy. Suprised to get the interest really :)


As a few weeders have settled on the sunny coast (and some looking to be there) I'm interested in their thoughts on it in comparison to Southern California? I realise this is a bit of a side track to the main purpose of the thread but would be interested to know if any of you guys have visited both places and your thoughts on them in comparison.... Never been to Aus but would like to, so far of all the places I've travelled Ca, in particular San Diego County, has the best balance of weather, quality swell, standard of life (with all the fatboy western comforts) and property prices are pretty good too so I pine to re-locate there at some point - how does the sunny coast compare?

I'll see your sidetrack and raise it........... India! Britain & India have a kind of love affair going on and although I've not been there it has an utterly massive coast so there must be empty world class waves plus the cost of living is nowt! And the icing on the cake, its dripping in culture. Maybe I should go? :lol:

Pack your bags Black, -3c in the Devon countryside this morning :shock:, although nice to have some sunshine and light winds, hopefully be a nice little wave on the go tomorrow . On India - don't forget the food!! Indian cuisine is my fave by a mile, never been and had the real thing though, if I recall right Danny spent a lot of time there? Maybe he'll chime in with some thoughts.

Can't make a comparison as I've never been to Cali but can tell you a little about the Sunny coast to help you make your own. Climate is one of the main reasons we moved here, winter mornings can be chilly (7c this year) and I got a woodburner for the last one but the daytime temps are low 20's. Also water never gets below 19c so my winter suit is a long sleeved shrt legged 2mm blind stitched. From Dec on to about June is boardies. Benn very dry this year but now is the start of rainy season with generally heavy short downpours and thunderstorms, not often you get a more than 4days of rain in row.

Waves are resonably consistant although this spring was pretty dire, fortunately Kym is learning to surf so it encouraged me to surf small waves that I normally wouldn't bother with and shape a board to suit. From now until mid winter is prime time, we've just had back to back cyclone swell from Evan and Freda and there's no flat spell forecast for a while yet! It's predominantly beaches/sand bottom but you can find the odd reef here and there.

Prperty prices are just starting to feel the pinch but the strengthof the AUS$ makes for a tough comparison with UK prices. Standard of life is exceptional, government funded medical care is a bonus. There's a general feeling of community on the Sunshine coast, lot's of farmers markets and small local businesses that thrive. A fair go for everyone is an Aussie mantra.

If you have any specific questions feel free to DM me.

In the meantime

Reasons to be cherful Pt4 is available for all your perusals :-D
