Flailing around, on the internet and in the water

It’d be a gross understatement to say that there’s a lot of information out there on the web, much of it useless. However, the more I look around, the more I find interesting contributions to important issues by people from all walks of life. One example is Andy Russell’s quick dissection of the word ‘belief’ in relation to climate change. Personally, I’d say I’m slowly moving towards treading the middle ground as to whether I can say “believe”, and the implication of faith and trust in relevant authorities that goes with it, or simply “am convinced by the evidence for” climate change. The term ‘belief’ is loaded with a personal element, which is justifiable in many areas of thought, but, to me, is less of an option science.

In other news, I went for a jaunt up to North Stradbroke Island yesterday in search of waves with a crew of surf photographers (Matt, Ben and Mark – check out their websites in the links on the right of this page – if you like any of my surf photos, you will be blown away by theirs). The waves weren’t pumping, so none of us ended up shooting, though I took the GoPro boardcam out for a bash. My attempted on-the-fly changes to settings ended up being wrong, so not much of the footage was any good, but here’s a perspective of taking off next to the headland.

Crystal blue water; the rebound wash off the rocks to the right; a fun wall to the left, and that bloody suck rock in front.
