Re: Just general surfing stuff

this is the worst east coast low in modern history

it's worse than drunk Polebean algae thread bombing on weekends

It's worse than International Surfing Day

It's worse than third hand mid-length surfboards. Worse than "big wave" legropes in 2' surf. Worse than a half-dug wave pool.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Some of us might remember the last really epic June/July, in 2007. The way these patterns are evolving is almost the precise opposite of that year.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Why? There's a really broad range of surfboards available these days thanks to the big steps in manufacturing and the types of surfboard businesses that have evolved in their wake. This means it has become easy to buy a good surfboard for a lot less and with a much higher degree of certainty than y...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Pittwater to Newport Beach on the 12’ Light NW wind early refracting a bit N of NW as the morning proceeded.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

That was the story in which Foo wrote his classic spaghetti-Western line about how if you want the ultimate thrill you have to be willing to pay the ultimate price. You'd have thought it was cheese except nine years later, he did.

Had the insane shot of Grambeau's, of the loose board on the face of a...
