I'd take it through till after Easter as well. You can't be too careful around that neck of the woods.

Third surf this week. Dodgy but nice to be in the water.

Waist high glassy peaks early this morning. No one within a 100 metres of me for an hour. Must have all been down Ducks way.
Ducks a bit sensitive about down.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Funnily enough the last two surfs I had at everyone's Favorite Eastern Suburbs secret spot were crowded but I ended up dodging the crowd. Last one I stumbled on a right bank hidden under the outside close out and practically had it to myself for a few waves.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Very true, Duck. It helps sometimes if they can actually surf but they can still be cnuts if they can. In the average surf you are treated like a fool if you don't paddle inside and snake people. When it's not crowded there is no excuse.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Don't understand why they don't just make a decent midlength that works well for 80-90% of surfers. IMHO the 7'-8' McTavish Carvers are as good as you can get. https://www.mctavish.com.au/collections/carvers This is correct, Cranky. I ride mine very regularly and I also have a Carver Fish which per...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Overcame my general lack of enthusiasm for the recent conditions and went for a paddle. More uncooperative than it looked from shore but managed a couple of longish rides with some semi interesting sections on the right and boring cutback required slow moving lumps on the left. Cleared the sinuses. ...

Rainbow Bay used to be called Shark Bay. Name change to encourage tourists.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Bronte was pretty big and getting bigger. Way too many shutting down but the occasional one looked to be breaking through okay. Fun watching the three surf boats getting out. Someone had their timing right. One guy on a minimal type board caught a couple of bigger sets from way out. They held up a l...
