Re: Where did you surf today ?

This morning was special. I felt like I was in Indo, surfing a reef pass. Inconsistent, but the water was dead still, tropical warm and oily smooth as 3-4 ft sets would come in and break all the way down past the sheds. A handful of locals out, I surfed NC's Al Byrne 6-channel- perfect board for the...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Epic day yesterday. Started at the local, 3-4ft and super glassy, nice reeling lefts coming in at the north end. Then after a quick recharge we hit that big left bommie that rhymes with Chommos. unbelievable, 4-6 ft and clean as, total dream conditions. Scored a few bombs! 5 or so hours in the water...

I wouldn’t be surprised if Bendy missed misses the swell a bit, Wyre. If I’ve ever felt skunked over the years there. It’s always been on North Swells.
Yep, this totally checked out.

Skunkfest.

Always a nice place to be, though

Driving an hour down the road and need to ask someone 850kms away what to take, stay at home.
Lol ok slobbo.

It’s 2.5 hrs, and I’m not sure this swell is gonna make it that far south, looks like a downgrade.

But I packed the 7’ anyway. Where are you surfing on this swell?

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Hey Steve, I’m packing right now for Bendy.

Help, should I pack the 7’ step up? Or will it be quite a bit smaller down there?

Hold on, what did you do when faced with the screaming wall?
I did what any loofy-type Waterman would do. Smacked it in the lip and told it to shut the hell up.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

There were some very happy faces after the morning session down here. Mine included. My last wave was a bigger roll-in that had the pack too deep, I managed to bounce through the full foam take off to make my feet, then I just had to wait, cruising until the wave hit the inside- at which point it tu...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

The whole suburb of Warilla is locked down. Some Ming Mong is on the loose running around the streets with a gun. Cops everywhere, Chopper flying overhead. Some decent surf nearby. Easy 5 foot sets on the outer bar of North Windang. Just got in. Some long walls. easy hundred metres on a couple of t...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Good call. It was a super fast swell, at dawn I paddled out to a couple of 3-4ft sets, by 8am they were gone.

Holy shit MM.


See now this is why Realsurf is such a great historical journal. I never read any of that story before! Amazing tales.

Re: Chicama 1980

Nice one Frus, must've been pretty intense back then. I was there in 2008, some things the same,some very different. Still very poor. Still very sketchy. We were staying down in Huanchaco and came up for a day trip, with a taxi driver who was ex-Policia. Place was pumping, 4 foot and clean as. Not a...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Not eleventy-foot epic but perfect smooth, glassy conditions with myself and 4 others at a regional classic reef break. Scored a really clean, wide barrel that did all the work for me (after making the drop).

Thanks Huey!!
