Re: Just general surfing stuff

Geez that Teneo crew look like a co-agents for the CIA (and the advisory board hasTony Blair and Bill Clinton)...........what are they doing with surfing I cannot understand ?

How does WSL pay their daily rates ?

NC says "Sydney surf population is by and large semi-skilled recreational and middle-aged" - obviously you have seen me surf although I am now 61 years old so not exactly correct.

So the 9.8 and 8.8 were dropped for wave score of 9.4

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Manly, small but amazingly no rain and even sun in the arvo. Was a gamble surf, very likely to be average but with the very small chance it might be OK on a rising tide - and it was average at best.
