Dear Marketing company that scammed my address. The only time I use Viagra is to stop me from rolling out of bed when I'm sleeping and last time I had one the tablet got stuck in my throat and I had a stiff neck for hours.
Are you a Christian?....Helen.
Nah, Helen, I'm Australian, I was born here. My beliefs in life are basic, "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you" or in laymans terms treat others how you would like to be treated. My beliefs are that.
Is it true you used to be able to do a turn?
Yeh, no bull, it's true. I used to be able to stand too.
Just letting you know that you have a bit of a following here in hawaii and say Aloha to Shaun Cossick if you see him, Mahalo
Hey Mahalo, what's with the Bra bit? I haven't put on that much weight yet, I'm still a "C" cup. Good to see I have a bit of a following in Hawaii as basically the surf in WA is just like in Hawaii. CROWDED! I will say hello to the hook for ya.
Marz!! Thanks for keeping it real! Brendon
g day marz!! jsut checkin wether those sik pics of catz are at ######, coz there's a few liddies going over the shoulder. And jstu checkin whether your mum was a small guinea pig and ya dad was a hairy wombat?? cheers mate, sik sight....Oliver
Pics of Catz at ###### can't tell ya, you work it out and it was the other way round with my parents. I hope you mean sic site and not me being a sic sight.

And you never will. No camera lens will stand the impact of photographing my head, till they invent a crack proof lens. Oii and thanks for logging onto the site.
hey marz i have been in love with you for along time. you are my idol.i love the way you do those massive turns.....love conor
Alright 3 things. 1. I hope you are a girl with a guys name Connor. 2. and if you are not, I'm not gay. 3. It wasn't me you saw do a turn, you have me confused with someone else.

Oii Ando when are ya coming home so you can show the groms at the beach what a real "Fin and rail" turn is. I'd love to, but I'm so short I would not be able to point to Darwin on the map. Mate you gotta stop snorting oil, try a raw clove of Garlic.
Hey Marz, Great site.... any chance of weekend reports??? I know your busy taking pics, etc. but maybe a report could be entered by someone else. This would really enhance the site and service you offer....Cas
Hi Cas, I'm not always busy on the weekend taking pics. To be honest the reason why I don't do it is to get you guys out from behind that computer screen and go down and have a gander for yourself. This way it gets you out of the house for a while in case you have any chores to do, plus the other fact is I can't be stuffed, but pretty soon I might be stuffed, so stayed tuned.
Marz, It's been a while. You may remember me for my rather entertaining answers to your quiz questions and the few times we have bumped into each other down at surf beach. Keep up the good work on the site and it's great to see the new stuff up. I'm glad to see and hear that you want to keep the site for the surfers and not for the profits. It is a lot of hard work and money to run such a site and it is a shame you don't break even from it. We all know that if there was a way, and it kept the site as it was, you would have already explored it. I've been living in the UK now since April, and as proof, I know many English lads who know of the site. I myself am patriotic and never miss a day. I'm somewhat disappointed that the year I decided to travel, I've missed possibly one of the best winter seasons for swell in a while. Oh well you get that, I'll be back for Christmas when it again falls to knee high. Oh well, good to see that surf beach is getting an annual event. Keep up the hard work and say G'day to Steve Del for us. The board he built me is sick. Regards from abroad, Gary Ahern
I was wondering where you got to. Mate to be quite honest, winter was not that good over here and actually the way it is with the weather at the moment it still feels like winter in December. Hope to catch up with you down the beach when you get back and maybe share a warm beer and a cold pie like they are supposed to do in England.
Marz, I can't believe how hypocritical you are going on about the craypot stuff in the South West and the stickers when you were the dickhead who got them printed. But then again it's easy to pretend someone who you are not on the net...Glen.
Mr. Glen, tried replying to your email, but obviously a made up hotmail address or you didn't have the kahunas to reply. So I will post it here. Dear Doodle head, how ill informed you are. I did not organise, print or have anything to do with the "ban the cray pots in the Southwest" stickers. I and many, many others were disgusted at the timing of when these stickers were released and also knew that Craypots had stuff all to do with shark numbers. I was offered like many shops and other websites to distribute these for free off SRO, but like others who had some sanity, I refused. If you have a look at the crew who have got them on their cars you will see that most are either recent additions to the Southwest who did not live in the area since they were born, ill informed crew or crew from the metro area and even some recreational cray potters who have licences (Now that's hyppocriticall). The best version I have seen of this sticker is the one on the back of Andys ute from Yals, it has been cut up to read "No Pot in the South West" maybe you should pull back on the cones and stick to 70 a day that way you might get your facts right.
hEH bRO, Well the ocean is sure giving us what for up here in Bali bro, absolutely going off its brains for the past ?? days. Biggest I have seen this year and all the power that Bali is renowned for!!! Looks like this is the month all the locals have been waiting for all year man.Though sadly also claiming the lives of inexperienced swimmers and I would guess a few pairs of boardies of some surfers who braved Uluwatu these past few days!!!! SURF ON Mooman Bali
Thanks for sharing that and rubbing it in mate, even though you sent this in October, it was still crap down here. Make sure your boardies are tight.
Hey Marz, This is just my humble opinion but it needs to be heard. All bodyboarders need to be black balled from ego point(trigg), on friday the 22nd there would have been 5 lids to 1 standup and thats including mals. If u wanna lid go to booga box which is a 2 minute walk north or go to scabs or 3rds which is about a 5 or 10 minute walk south, these waves are WAY better for body boarders. The point is crowded enough as it is without body boarders who are only endangering themselves as many locals refuse to notice lids on waves. Anyone who is serious about body boarding (good god) would never think about practising their pathetic attempt at a sport anywhere in the metro area. Go to hollow night on rotto or evils down south, any one who actually bodyboards with any skill knows these places. I have written this letter more out of sympathy then hate, about 5 lids being no more than 12 got run over by the "locals" (they have surfed it for more than a week) of the point and its just terrible that people get injued just trying to do something we all love. Hey bodyboarders and surfers all experience the ocean but het its different, lying down gives you 1/10th of the joy of standing up, think about that. I have respect for the nut boxes that take on ####### and that wave Chris White found in Guam, but the poor bastards who surf in the metro area, are taking the easy way out in enjoying the oceans waves and that is why i believe their are so many lids and why people have no respect for them. And anyone who is serious about their surfing will never get into an fight over a piece of one foot right hand slop at trigg point.....Matt
Geez Matt, that wasn't a letter, that was an Essay. Yep, Point Danger is pretty rad and it will only get more rad come summer and wait till after christmas when everybody has got their new body boards, surfboards, longboards, skimboards and cardboards, it will be worse. As for boogers I also find respect for those who charge like their is no 2 morrow at places like the box and other heavy duty waves that some of the surfers who pay out on these guys would never attempt to surf. Guys like Hardy that charge the box with out any fear. In the end everyone has a right to surf, but you don't go out at the Point until you have done your time down the beach and even then you will have to be pretty damn good to mix it with some of the crew who surf there.
Hey Marz… I’m not even from WA I’m from NSW.. but your site is loish keep at it….and if its possible can you put some more of those crazy pics of cattz up.. he rips.. anyways thanks for providing…. Ryan…
Cool, doesn't matter where you're from as long as you are getting in the water. Mate I have s#%t loads of those images, once I find them I will slap more up.
Dear Alica, Marz is definately not like a guinea pig... He's more like a wombat, its easy to tell just look at his legs, a guinea pig has short thin legs a wombat has short stumpy ones..Chez
Cmon guys, I used to be six foot two before I started parachuting.
Are you the guy that used to write the weekly surf articles in the Bay Weekly in Rocko.
Geez Man, your giving me flash backs. Yep, that's me, the days when u could drive your 4 bee on the beach at surf beach, a party all night and do the dawny (not that I partied much, I used to let everyone else get cooked so I could get it to myself in the morning).
First of all, love your site and so do most of the crew at school. I know you don't make much money from it (you know my Dad) and we have a suggestion. Why don't you go National or Iternational and attract more visitors to the site, that way you can use these stats to show prospective advertisers and make more money. You should also update stuff on your site more frequeantly...Craig
Hi Craig, I love that you love and your mates love the site. That's a lot of love. SRO is born and bred in Western Australia and sure I could easily go global at the flick of a button, but why? when the world comes to this site anyway. We/I are not into Global Domination like some other websites. Plus you would be surprised at how many vistors this site recieves. I'll give you a hint of how many, this year SRO has again recieved an award for finishing in the top ten in Australia for the 3rd year running and we done it without boosting the numbers with a live webcast embeded in the site, cool huh? Now getting back to the monetary thing, there would be nothing better than I would like than to have more advertisers/sponsors on this site. I have even knocked back a few, because I found there adds to be detremental to the WA surfing industry, including guys flogging off cheap new boards and adds that would be misleading in promising people that they can do something for them and in the end they can't. The site doesn't break even still and I work me butt off on weekends shooting and doing the media for prime events (which usually takes me up to Tuesday with enquiries). Basically the companies on this site support surfing in Western Australia and I mean generally, from your recreational surfers to whatever. So there's the speil. So when someone tells you that I'm making a shitload out of this site (which will be just one of the many rumours floating around about me) tell them like it is, we/I don't. So there u go, I've had my bitch and thanks to you, your mates and everyone else for logging onto the site. West Australian and proud #%@*#%@% of it!
Is it true that you are small and hairy like a guinea pig?....Alicia
Oh Damn the secret is out! Well I'm not as small as a guiness pig, more the size of a Quokka on the roids, but yes I'am hairy like animal. Every summer I do my Bikini line with a whipper snipper and the local council makes me clear a fire break on my buttocks, I'm that hairy
Thanks for your sensible letter about the so called bait bombing of the sw. I have crayfished for 30 years, the last 2 have spent a fair amount of each season on the leuwin coast. Love it. It's beautiful. And wild tackling that coast, especially when the winter fronts start marching in.Have heard my share of chinese whispers from tourists and locals, the grandaddy of them all was from a bloke I met at the skyshow earlier this year, a "holiday" landowner from Yallingup who happily believed crayfishermen where actually saving up old bait, wrapping it up in big bags and dropping it off in surf zones on their way home to give all the locals the shits. A smart educated man had been swayed by gossip, innuendo and lack of solid info. Now I know how some of those celebritys feel when they see their faces on the front cover of those womens magazines claiming they're having sex with monkeys. Utter rubbish. So thanks again. Nice to know at least one person has seen thru the crap. Regards, Andy Clarke
No dramas Andy. It's amazing isn't it? It's like chinese whispers, some one tells one person one thing then by the time it gets to the last one down the line, the whole story has changed. If craypots are the cause like some crew are suggesting and the cray season has been over for ages, then why are they still hanging around and why are there sightings and encounters in areas where there hasn't been any crayfishing at all anyway? I source my info from guys like you and the older fisherman who have seen the changes over the last 30 to 50 years. The guys with weather beaten faces that every wrinkle on them has a story to tell, for to me, these guys are the true experts. Not some pencil pusher with a uni degree and a brief case, that sits behind a desk all day and the only time he has seen a shark is at AQUA. Thanks for your letter.
Marz, Just a word of warning to all those out there in net land. Check your internet accounts and find out how much you are allowed in dowloads. We recieved a huge bill recently from our ISP and it all seems to stem from my son watching live webcasts and music dowloads, so be weary and know your limits.....Grant
Woah, heavy dung! Good point, I hope your squid ain't ripping music off the net from some starving artist like Michael Jackson. Point taken try seeing what kind of deal the can give u at www.westnet.com.au
marz, I read about Eastoughs recent success in getting back his stolen goods and stuff so i thought i would ask the same favour to post a letter to see if anyone has "accidently" picked up my wetsuit. I was surfing last sunday at rocky point with my brother and i accidently left my wetty in the carpark by the entrance to the track. We were just getting changed when it started to pretty much hail so we jumped straight in the car and left without the old faithful skin. Shortly after leaving i realised my mistake and returned to get said wetsuit only to find that it was gone. I know this was a big mistake on my behalf but if someone has picked it opportunistically and doesn't really need it then put yourself in my shoes, i have now have no wetsuit and cannot afford to buy another! I very much need it back. I can't offer much of a reward but the best i can do is chuck in a box of crownies for your efforts in it's safe return. I can guarantee that NO questions will be asked and no names will be named, just wesuit for beer is all that will be exchanged. Details of the wetsuit are as follows; Brand: O'neil, Model: Hammer, Colour: Black (has some slight fading on top of the shoulders) Size: large Area where it was left: Sunday (28th aug) at about 4pm the westsuit was left under the big peppy tree just to the left of the track entrance. Any information leading to it's return would be much appreciated. Aaryn aka "frozan, king of the cold winter swells" If anyone contacts you in this regard could you please pass the message on to me, Thanks heaps + srosurf is the best (any brownie points aquired?)
Mmmm, well it's up and I hope u find your suit, Brownie points? Geez, I haven't seen a Brownie in ages, do they still sell biscuits?
hey, when will there be the next real swell would u rather surf trig point or scarborough in perth? james timoney say hello as he aint that good....Daniel Davis
I'd rather surf Scarborough as the food is better there, but I would really like to surf somewhere with long waves and not a lot of crew in the water. Say hello to James and be good at school, brush your teeth, do all your home work, no pulling hair, biting, scratching, name calling, but don't forget to start the odd fruit fight every now and then.
this site is awesome, i chek it every time i go for a surf, its way betta than all the utha surf report sites, kepp up the good work dude....Ben
Thanks Ben and I hope some one gives u heaps about your spelling too when they see this
I heard you hurt your nuts.. how are they??.....Noela
That's old news, Geez, nuthing is sacred in this industry. It's called a testicle dear, went over the falls with the rail of my surfboard between me legs that blew out me righty and it swelled to the size of a cricket ball and was as red (now was that too much information for ya)
Mad Maz means "role" as in "the full moon will play a big role," not "the moon will play a big roll," unless of course the next full moon is going to make us a subway sandwich, Frank and Ali
Ohh Geez, I hope u r knot anudda hi skool teacher righting mi off about mi spelling mistakes. Yep I mean't role, sorry I was thinking of a chicken roll with mayo at the time.
Hey Marz, Firstly let me say that your website is great and i check it everyday. However your 'off beat' columns are simply not funny, witty or clever. They are annoying and me feel sick. Please get funnier or get somone else to write them because they ruin your website and annoy the surfing community. Yours sincerely Rhys
Hey Reece, thanks for the buff in the first part of your email, as for the second part concerning the "off beat" columns, just don't read the crap and that way you won't feel anoyed and sick.
dear marz, can you atleast pretend that there is good waves in the metro area by doing a phony surf report or something. This way I can rekindle the feeling of getting amped up for good waves and ride down the beach at 40 k/ph to see what the surfs like. It is a distant memory and i fear that i have forgotten how to make a drop over waist high. Please marz can we even pretend the waves are good or even send a tsunami to stir up the banks....Noel.
40kph, man u gotta stay off the redbulls if you are hitting that speed on your pushy. Waves will come soon, well one day any way, give the Tsunami a miss, I'll ya a Salami instead
