Re: that wetsuit discussion...

I'm still getting by with 2 long johns (a 2mm and 3mm) and 2 front zip jackets (one a 2mm body with 1mm arms and the other all 2mm).

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Its been a week of spectacular fails in the Mandurah area for Surf_forecast.com. Forecasting endless waves in the 2-2.5m with 19s period range and it staying at around 1m and struggling to even hit 1.5m and a gutless 12s period. I spent a few complete days hanging around various breaks waiting for t...

If you left now, you'd be there before 9.30am!
It would probably be too big and raw for me anyway, I'm used to orderly Indonesian waves

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Surfed irregular 1' to 2' waves. This is what my surfing life has descended to. Put a star fin in my 6'10 Beau Young Wombat... wow, amazingly fast and loose!
