Re: skateboarding ...

See now, this is why skateboarding will always be cooler than surfing for the youth. Young surfers get old and keep surfing, thus losing any semblance of rebel edge or cool, whereas skateboarding at 40+ is a recipe for broken bones, busted kneecaps and a host of other injuries.* Sk8 or Die! (Die) Of...

Noosa would be on the pump
Picking up a new 7-4 tomorrow
Then will be staying @ Noosa from Wednesday morning for a few days
Anyone hoping to get some waves in Noosa better get there before Wednesday then, Salty? 😁

Nowhere near as big as predicted this morning.

Edit: at least down here

You about tomorrow? I’m hitting coal coast and further south. Should be a couple of options
Only for the Parent Hour (ish).. 5.45-7am.

I think a rock shelf big left hander might be good!

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Pah-lenty of swell down here. Shame about the wind but there were some glassy windows of opportunity today. Definitely on the build!

Re: Mentawai quiver.

It was descriptive really. Peachy buttocks are peachy buttocks.

Doesn’t mean you were perving, just observing.

Right?

Not really a swell for the coal coast today is it. Too souf, too long period
Yep pretty much. There were good sets around but very inconsistent

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Sent you a PM, Wyre. I recommend sorting out the back problem with a decent diagnosis first. I'm doing exercises I know work for me, based on 20 years of advice from physios. Thanks for the pm ‘Boo. Been trying to reply all day but the kids are like some kind of time-sucking monsters, unstoppable i...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I'm not against weights, far from it. I've been doing some light stuff this year and resolved some niggling/recurring back and shoulder issues. Ok, you and Shearer both mentioned your back issues cleared up from weight work. My back has been acutely sore over and over again the last 4 years. Im fai...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Sandon is a fairly ledgy wave with a quick take off. I once took a gun out there and soon wished I was on a much smaller board, as the run up time needed for the gun simply wasn’t there. Yep exactly. I hated my board and had no confidence in it, although it was great for scratching over the sets. I...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I was overgunned and under-balled at Sandon. Had the choice of a 6’0 or a 7’6” and on witnessing a massive 6-8 ft set wash through I chose the latter. But that meant I was supposed to go out the back and today I really wasn’t feeling confident. I pulled back on some good wide ones which are gonna ha...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Woooo 10’ plus plus back bombie ledges, just me for 90 mins then a couple of kids for another 90mins Splendid swell, so much energy, some seemingly more from an east angle but probably just long interval distorting on the continental shelf, the rest pouring up from quite an acute sth angle. Heaps o...
