Re: Where did you surf today ?

Some nice big take offs out at a nearby deep water reef. Pretty slow, but fun as on the 7'6". Great board! Fast. Haven't used a pintail much and I like it.

Re: Summer

I’ll be watching it all take shape over the next 48 hours. I’m aiming to take a single day off work early next w...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I'm fixing up a pretty nice 7'6" pintail thing, I've had it for years and years and only really now after about 10 years surfing down here I've come to the point where I might, might think about using it every now and then. Anyway, I've put whatever FCS fins in (and yeah Braithy I agree the Futures ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

This swell coming has horrible bank buster written all over it.

Such a pity, the sand is groomed and plentiful down on the coal coast.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Saturday. missed the early as I had had a shocking night's sleep, and then had to drive past several pumping beachies to man the Wollongong Bunnings BBQ for the Pre School from 8-10am. I tried not to think of the waves pouring in, but suffice to say my heart wasn't in the job at hand. Luckily for me...

Re: Quiksilver Pro France 2017

I'm enjoying Lucky Al's coverage of this event more than the WSL's.

What's the surf looking like for the next few days? Is it gonna be as good?

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Aj and I met up at Garie Beach early on Father's Day morning. High tide killing the little swell there was.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Woah. Some serious size up there. Sandon was much more manageable but fcuk me the wind was intense. Without doubt the coldest day in the water this winter. Some cranking walls though!
