Re: Summer

I don't understand this swell, or lack of, yet. Did the dawn run on Saturday, DY barely breaking and Manly really inconsistent. Flagged it for the early and hit it just adter midday. Saw a few rogue 5 footers but really a consistent and comfortable 4 foot. Sunday, felt like the south swell was bigge...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I reckon a few people could get into trouble today, if you time the paddle out well, you could get out with dry hair. Still plenty of kooks on longboards able to get out then going backwards over the falls when the sets come. Carnage and collisions all over the place.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Got a message from a mate on the Goldie, he paddled out at Greenmount and ended up down at Kirra. Apparently plenty of jet skis helping mates beat the sweep.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Had a crack in the wind. Hard work, 5 foot or so, cleanup sets to deal with, rips and strong winds. A bit fun!

Re: Where did you surf today ?

It's come up a lot. But a bit directional at this stage.

It was still as good as flat at north steyne yet south end was seeing long chest high lines although overpowering the banks into closeouts.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Just a bit of swell hype. 5.50am and the Manly carparks just about full and nearly too small to surf.

Re: General snow stuff

Stance and weight distribution. Lean too heavily on your back foot snowboarding and you’ll just spin circles.

Re: Summer

From the swellnet forecast “overall, this won’t be a swell event suitable for beginner or even intermediate surfers. It’s very likely to be a sustained, sizeable and powerful round of energy with strong currents and dangerous conditions for all but the most experienced surfers.” I think Nick just ji...
