Sorry about that, but I do love the old movies.

You can watch it on the Langland webcam on gowerlive if you’re that interested. Should be fairly chunky on Friday
I did watch the Langland webcam on the day. It was a bit chunky, but I must say the surfer behaviour was mystifying.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Those waves do look like tiddlers. Pretty though. But I agree, probably far too cold to bother with for us spoiled Aussies.
In east coast Australian conditions, you would go out for a relaxed scenic paddle, but that’s while you are waiting for some swell to arrive.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Get away with what?
Saying it’s awesome being a good surfer?

Well, if that annoys you, Nick wrote a whole book on the subject.

“The Complete Guide to Surfing Your Best - Vol 2 : Advanced surf skills and knowledge for all surfers” by Nick Carroll

You could buy that book and be super annoyed.

And it will be a learning experience because little AJ’s first comment will be, what the fk is a mile*?

Re: The Tulla Tub

They’ve got an indicator dye in the pool which reacts with urine to form a bright orange cloud.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Growing up, it was some classic shots through the pandanus of surfing at Crescent Head that gave the spot its somewhat overrated status. We would stare at the photos for hours. North Coast dreaming. Like this one. Ed Cornish Crescent Head 1965 https://i.imgur.com/1xHyylN.jpg The photo is from Bob We...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

It’s an interesting story that during WW2 Bob Hope and a group of fellow entertainers had to crash land on a sand bank in the Camden Haven River at Laurieton. It was a wild landing with the plane almost somersaulting. That night Bob and his colleagues put on an impromptu show in the Laurieton School...

I’m sure GSTQ loves his Welsh waves. After all, this is the same bloke who chooses to run in mud.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I think that Gabs is very thankful and respectful for what Charlie did for his family when Gabs was growing up. My understanding is that Gabs’ natural father, while not a necessarily a bad man, was not good at the dad tasks, both financially and emotionally. Charlie came on the scene and was a devo...

ho ho fcuken ho, Sunset was smoking today, clean new swell 6-8', light offshore trades, and about 10 guys out, half of whom could not surf very well at all.
Nick, why were there so few out and where were all the good surfers?

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Longtom on Beachgrit is refusing to cover one more Freshwater Pro.
One of things he can’t do again is he “Can’t watch ’em squat down for that tube.”

I agree. Watching them squat down for that tube is the most dispiriting sight in surfing.
