Re: Where did you surf today ?

Late arvo session north Maroubra on the incoming tide. Wind was light moderate with only slight ruffle, the faces were clean. 4-5 foot and punching above it’s size. Felt more like 6+. Easy paddle out, shifting take off zone, deep then wide. All about wave selection today. Got a few screamers that l...

Re: General snow stuff

We worked at a family-owned resort for a couple of seasons back in the day. A couple of years later it was sold to a conglomerate. Season passes went from $250 to $1000, indicative of resort-wide price hikes Imagine if you could combine mountain biking with snow skiing ... you'd make a fucking fort...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Was there that area (Bribie) just a sand spit previously? Assume the houses are elsewhere or more inland?

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Surprised by the swell today. Really sweepy, rips everywhere and seemed way more powerful than I thought it would be.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Swell starting to show in Sydney now, a few solid sets with the tide dropping. It it was offshore, it would be epic.

Short window of opportunity on the west wind change, so good but close to gone now.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Agree, good read Legion.

As Steve would attest to, the underlying bathymetry out from the reef and how this steers the swell into the reef would have a major impact to the performance of the reef itself.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

It’s like there is a snitch in these forums giving commercial information to Surfline.

Same happened with Crabmeats weekend surf report talking to a strong nor east wind forecast right as the southerly was marching up the coast.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

How would you feel if the grom in your heat at the local boardriders pulled this off?

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Had one of those surfs where it all comes together, nailed a perfect (in my eyes) layback snap. Still replaying it over in my head.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

My mal is in pretty good shape and 16 years old.

Only damage was from the rocks at Raglan but repaired well. Lives in a board bag, hanging on wall hooks when not used. Quality glassing and foam helps.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Excellent up here too Wyre.

Not huge but plenty in the 3-5 foot range and the change in swell direction did good things to the shape.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Mid 20’s.

It was a good vibe with not too many people out. Plenty of waves to go around before they paddled out.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I was happy to take this approach with my youngest yesterday until 4 longboarders paddled out and took every lump that looked like breaking. So after watching him catch nothing for 15 minutes while they had heaps, I started giving him a hand and pushing him into a few and dropped in on the longboard...
