Re: Front shoulder pain.

A mate of mine had both biceps detach, same thing, got the Popeye arms now. Nothing can be done about it in his case, but he still surfs and it hasn’t stopped him doing anything he wants to do. I was surprised when he told me the tendon goes all the way over the shoulder and attaches at the shoulde...

Re: La Nina 20/21

If anyone is interested - Steve, Nick? and I think I sent this to you Boo - I found a CD in Vinnies titled "Severe storms on the east coast of Australia 1770 - 2008" by Jeff Callaghan and Dr Peter Helman from Griffith Uni - I've saved it as a PDF - seems like a pretty comprehensive list by these egg...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

A few fun waves right out behind the rock at flatty on the low tide. After a couple of hours a shadow went under me that didn’t surface so I made my way in, feet up catching a few along the inside. I definitely thought of that massive beached sperm whale near sth Bal. A few years back I was out the...

that shark stayed in virtually the same spot for hours, even when the chopper tried to scare it off. It came back to the same spot, within just a few metres, the next day, and again stayed put.
And from that day on the shark was affectionately known as "Sharkpole"

Fun head high breakwall wedges. Seemingly a little crowded but the majority were just tea bagging and catching nothing.

Re: Nth NSW sharks. Can they p!ss off already?

Looks like I was right. DPI advise 2.39m White Shark tagged and released from SMART drumline at BOULDER NORTH, Lennox Head at 10:42 am on 2 Aug 2019. At the risk of asking a dumb question how the fcuk do you get the hook out of the mouth of a 2.39m GWS? Or do you? Is it barbed? What do they use for...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Just had a gnarly little encounter with a chunky juvenile white. High speed approach, circle, then a fins flared rollover right under me. We very much eyeballed each other. Crystal clear water, sunshine. Me and one other guy out enjoying some rock runner babyfood. :shock: What was your initial reac...
