What about the Lenny cam?
Didn’t it get run outa town last year?
Yes, a group of local surfers went around and had a little chat to the property owner hosting the camera.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

But Lucky Al, the only time you can tastefully talk about surfing is when you are not surfing. Obviously, conversation should be kept at a bit of a minimum while actually surfing. But, if a person wants to pass a brief comment about their daughter's new soccer coach, or their new kitchen tiles or wh...

Just about every big sports gambling company offers betting on the WSL.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Quite possibly the men's tour might only have 3 or 4 Australians in it in a couple of years, and possibly that 3 or 4 might not include a charismatic title contender. Be interesting to see if that impacts on the viability of the Aussie leg.

Re: Strahan tassie

Some people I know lived in Burnie for a while. They reckoned the weather was much nicer on the eastern side of the hill compared to the western side. You've got to take what you can afford though.

Most of the time I leave my car unlocked with fishing and surfboards inside, windows down, radio on and keys in the ignition.
This is the great advantage of driving a Camry bought from the wreckers.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Yeah, I might pop down to Crescent for a round of golf. It's a thongs and six pack course, very relaxing.

Re: Pipe Masters 2017

Good article. For me, I don't think the WSL need worry too much about not having a close up of JJF's celebration at the time. Most viewers yearn for the top level comp to retain some of the funky natural vibe we like surfing to possess. We don't want everything to be a meticulously curated media and...

Re: Pipe Masters 2017

The advantages of Pipe as the first event. - Probably better surf. The sand is off the reef and more consistent swells. It might even return to being the Pipeline Masters instead of the Backdoor Masters. - The first event of the season still carries an extra cachet. Everybody is focussed after the b...

Re: Pipe Masters 2017

Someone suggested it is more in front of Off The Wall which is about 60 metres down the beach I think. I don't know. All will be revealed when the comp kicks off I guess.

This Pipeline livecam is excellent quality.
The surf is no good today.

I am wondering if Kelly's competing will generate more headlines than the world title.
I doubt it. He's still a favourite surfer, but competitively, I think most of us have moved on.
Also, I get the impression it's not going to be primo Pipe which doesn't help him.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Hey Toots I'm in Coffs smashing Motackle. Any surf around? Motackle. I thought to myself, wow, that's a hip hop happening fishing store name, Mo' tackle. But no, it's actually not a hip hop happening name. :cry: Motackle stands for 'Mail Order Tackle', which is very dull, but makes the pedant in me...

Anyway, packing for Plomer now so probably no surf today.
When Steve interrupts his fishing and surfing lifestyle in Lennox to have a family holiday in Point Plomer where he hopes to do a lot of fishing and surfing, I wonder if Lennox locals refer to this as Steve's busman's holiday.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Yep, the 2nd wave didn't arrive. Sally only got one wave. Sad exit for her.
