Re: Where did you surf today ?

That comment on the island brings back fond memories for me duck. The oceans gone very calm here. Calm before the psycho storm me thinks fcuk JBay is going to be off the charts later this week. Then CBreak, then all of Indonesia. Unfortunately I'm gonna miss it. I leave Tuesday next week, just as i...

Re: Midlengths

I had a Takayama Egg, 7'10, hull, knifey pinched rails.

Thought I might be able to push it at size in the bukit. That wasn't the case. McCoys don't care what size, how critical, or how fast - they love it and just ask for more, no limits. Remarkable boards.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Knocked a fin out of my board on a rock yesterday at low tide. Luckily no damage to the box or surrounds, so just swapped one over from another board.

I guess thats sort of and advantage of FCS2. I think?

Re: Where did you surf today ?

After nearly three weeks of good surf the swell has been dropping. Hopefully it has reached its nadir today.

Expecting a continuation of head high at the small wave spots, I went out before dawn for a walk up the coast. Got nothing. Looking on the bright side though, I do need a rest.

Re: Rio Pro

I walked and climbed the cliffs this morning to check out a remote spot that picks up more swell than anywhere and is protected in a south easter. It was monkey paradise. Waiting for the tide now.

Re: Epoxy boards

TSA has got it down. 6oz top and bottom, a stringer, way lighter and more durable than glass, but a similar flex pattern - perhaps a bit more flexible than glass.

They do yellow a bit, just get some colour, the price is the same.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Great morning session at an Ulus crowd favourite. Crowded with good surfers. Chest to head high. Because I entered the line-at the top I let a few go by and then got a ripper for about 300m, high speed through every section with about 50 people watching every move, fast as fcuk and loose as a goose....

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Superb surf late yesterday. Perfect conditions. Three hours of head and a half to double, 6-8 wave sets, 10 mins in between,100-300m rides. Twenty surfers on the favoured take-off zone, only 5 of us really competing for the biggest waves though. Me on a 7'4, could just about take my pick from the se...

Just when Ulus was becoming a relatively quiet backwater this happens.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Good day of surf coming up, 1500kJ, offshore of course, should see regular head and a half, maybe a few doubles -from dawn till dusk.

There's just enough light to check it now.
