Re: Where did you surf today ?

I got fcuking detonated at the Point today! The classic: not paddling hard enough to cleanly get over the first wave of the closeout set, which pulled me back a bit but I was clear of it , leaving me in prime position for the beast of second wave to just axe me. I was turbulated. Super powerful swel...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Well, that was annoying. The fcuking offshore was ridiculous down here! Illawarra was blowing around 30knots at least all day. blew the swell away.

A shame as it seemed like some good grunty long period stuff there.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

And may I add, there seems to be plenty of lines showing right now. Hopefully they hang around for the early?

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I was a bit further south at the nearest open beach. Same, probably not as big but some grunty overhead sets. Peddle to the metal on the rights, the left more of a sweet zippy rip bank.

Haven't surfed for three weeks and it showed! Got a cuppla but eh

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Yeah it has been surprisingly clean and plenty of swell down here.

The local has been on the pump!

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I don't think ol' Sharkies has looked as good as it did today in months. Years, even. Perfect. Biggest and best spot on the coal coast I reckon! I had to take my boy to a 6 year old birthday party there. Took my board.

Best party ever!

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.

Midday might be better- I can do the super early then it's all hands on deck until 9am. Then it's Wyre Time

Re: Summer

Thanks jimmy. Very kind offer. I’d love to but if was going to head up it would be for more than a single day to make it worth the effort. And I can’t afford the time away at the moment. 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 ...

That east pulse showed up nicely at a local high tide loving reef down here. Only 4 dudes out. Thanks kindergarten!

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.
