Re: Where did you surf today ?

I can only imagine how many days with big swells and winter westerlies you have spent in westernport while it's pumping on the other side of the bay.

Finally surfed Bells yesterday and also Winki. Great waves
You're Victorian (Melbourne?) and never surfed either of those waves before?

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Buddy I'm not a pro surfer, I'd probably do it worse. You've already noted above that Occ or Tom Carroll would do far better. But as you asked, and with the hindsight of viewing that footage, I would try for one good carved turn and a floater on the foam at the end, instead of the two that she did....

Re: Just general surfing stuff

This is the video the WSL posted to announce that Caroline Marks won her US Open Rd 1 heat beating Sally and Bronte. This must be one of Caroline's best waves of the heat. I wonder if this is the type of thrills surfing will be offering Olympics viewers at Chiba. https://mobile.twitter.com/wsl/stat...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Watch 80s footage of Occ or Tom Carroll in the same conditions and it's so much better than that.

Still shit to watch those conditions either way though.

I wouldn't lend a board to legion with his feet made out of bronze.
Anyone else I wouldn't mind.

What does bulbous mean in regards to a surfboard?
Too much foam in the wrong places. It's like riding a ballon. No bite.
If it doesn't work well as a quad, sell it while it still looks good.

Just had a look.
Looks like a hypto crypto?

Any idea what the construction quality is like ? Blanks, glassing etc? Even if they’re well priced, it’d be a shame to see one fall apart like an al merrick etc A young fella I know bought an ed Sinnott board from sideways 499 special Within a month it looked the deck like he had dropped a bag of o...

Pyzel Ulus boards https://www.instagram.com/p/BlxQ1r-AVrL/ I regularly see quite a few guys on these and similar boards. Super fast waves, waist to overhead. Big orange one https://www.instagram.com/p/BlhTafEnvS2/?taken-by=matt_aldridge is this one https://www.instagram.com/p/BlrNdsKnann/?taken-by=...
