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

There is a Shark Creek down near Brooms Head :shock:

Ice has ruined some of those lovely little places .. Corindi, Red Rock, Wooli, Diggers Camp, Minnie Waters, etc

Pebbly Beach and Sandon are some of my favourite spots for exploring down that way

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Harrison Roach is an amazing surfer on a variety of craft. Like a Rasta but without the surf brand hype and Rasta weirdness

Has a pretty enviable lifestyle for a young bloke

Re: The big NE swell this weekend

couple reasons, but primarily I thought it would be a bog standard storm swell for longer than it was and that storminess would destroy the sand banks. as it turned out, the storm moved off quickly enough and cleaned up quickly enough that we got classic big surf instead of a stormy mess. I still t...

Re: The big NE swell this weekend

Came over Freshwater to this Sunday morning. A couple of hectic hours with just two of us out image.jpg Back for some banana pancakes and a drive over to look at DI around the low. Gave it a miss and came back to a crowded lineup in the arvo. About 8 out. Fcuk it was good as far as the eye could see...

Re: The big NE swell this weekend

Dropped from yesterday but some top to bottom 8-10ft sets freight training the length of the Point. I felt more rattled than yesterday, which seemed comical and outlandish. This was just pure focussed power and and a 20knot WNW to NW devil wind came up strong, making take-offs insane freefalls. I t...

Dragon Surfboards

Anyone know anything about them? Checked out one that my wife's friend is selling & it looks really well crafted. No dimensions on the board but it was probably 6'8 or 7'. Very thick and 5 fin set up. Reckon it would go unreal on big days at granites or tea-tree. Looks indestructible! Have seen a co...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Opposite end of spectrum to Cranked but I had the most enjoyable surf today. Took my 5 yr old nephew down to the River mouth. There is so much sand at low tide you can walk out 100+ metres from end of the groyne. We jumped in in front of coast guard tower on a big old log and had a gentle float out ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I'm still buzzing from 4hrs Saturday arvo out the back at Tea Tree! I'm in a great mood!! I haven't been there since the 1980s but enjoyed it then. Was it crowded? NBs today. So, so. Low tide closeouts. It was crowded but pretty mellow considering. If you wanted a dig you got some. A few pros among...
