Re: Where did you surf today ?

Went for a drive down the beach just before dark. Plenty of parks.
Looks like we have some banks after the tempest.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Beanpole, that's a Tolhurst for sure. Tried surfing one of the 7'2"s in that tech (lightning) and it didn't paddle across the flats well or catch waves easily at all. Once up and riding it felt nice and loose but the poor paddling/wave catching left me non-plussed. Never tried any of the longboards...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Had a late look at Bronte about 4:45. Looked about the best I had seen it all day. Really good big walls rolling through the middle and down towards Tama. Obviously easier to keep on going and come in down there as the rip was going that way. A few boards snapped and most were in the 7' to 7'6" leng...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I never use the surfers feet, its Imperial all the way with me offy. But that's an interesting point you make about whether it applies to whitewater, I assumed it didn't. Ask Nick! Maybe there's some complex historic thing that justifies it in regard to whitewater too. Without really wanting to go ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I was also called, emergency rescue call-out. Surfed my fuschia brains out today! The swell really booted again this afternoon, way up into the 10'+ range. Little Makaha off the back of Long Reef was like big Laniakea. Kelly surfed Little Avalon and gave the entire suburb of Avalon a shivery attack...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Bronte was big and looked pretty good this morning. Still waves this arvo. Three out this morning plus three getting washed over the inside reef. Three then four this arvo. One guy tried paddling out off the beach. Must have copped twenty waves on the head before giving up. Another guy jumped off th...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Kirra better in an East Swell, ditto The Pass and Noosa. Currumbin catches south as does Lennox and Burleigh.
Snapper does now but it used to roll into deep water n the old days.

Can't believe how bad Bondi looks at the moment. Might have a swim later.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

So Friday I paddled out at Bronte on my foamy. Hardly breaking but nice floating around in the water. Very shallow sand bank to land on after a brief non closing out section occasionally. Highlight of the surf was one I took off on and didn't land on my arse after a brief first section. As I continu...

Same around here. More because they are baristas, backpackers, movie stars or sporting identities.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Must be sharkier than the Tweed Bar. There would have been a tow in crew on it.
