Re: Just general surfing stuff

She's still kicking, Trev. A mate lives near her. He was talking to one of the local shopkeepers and said Phylis must be really patriotic because she has Australian Flags sticking out of the top of her car. The shopkeeper said it was so she could see where she parked it.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

This whole summer has been Groundhog Day. Not much good surf for sure. However, I've surfed four to six days every week. A few reasonable little banks to play on. Heaps of socialising plus I feel fit and not too sunburnt.....so although the surfs been marginal it's been a good summer for me. I'm pre...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

:lol: Yes, I'm not that older than Nick really. As far as surf trips go......I never imagined I'd be surfing Cloudbreak at 61. Going out on the boat twice though reinforced the reality that if anything really went wrong chances are you're fcuked. It's not just that its out in the ocean. Really I ima...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Always interested in new useful information about Surf Safety. I worked in RPA Hospital as a porter briefly back in the Eighties and I definitely know I don't know everything about emergency care. Used to being told I don't know anything around here though. I will have a look when the other bits pop...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Also about ten years ago....I was going to paddle out from Bronte out to Tama on my Taka mal. It was pretty solid but the rip was going to get me out fast. I noticed this guy with flippers and a hand plane on the shore....not the guy I mentioned the other day.....anyway...started paddling out and ro...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Just like any development there's a variety of ways to do it. South of Port is already developed but the retirement villages they've been banging up lately are a blot on the landscape. Very similar to those around Kiama. Not surprisingly as its usually the same companies doing the development. I don...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Honestly, who gives a rats fat arse. There's plenty of places that weren't tar sealed for years crawling with punters. Seal Rocks for example. These sentimental discussions are just that. Well, sure you can have that attitude but your going to have to wear the consequences. I'm not anti development...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

It's always been an anomaly that there was a section sealed halfway along. I must say the road to Hat Head being sealed hasn't made it much more crowded. It's like Pitt St going out to Plomer at Easter or Xmas. Used to be able to drive through from Port without much trouble in the old days. The thin...

100%. There's a lot of land out there. Might look like The Farm in a few years.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Well Ive got about twelve shots from about the same spot. Very true about not know places if you only go there once a year. I mean look at all the people who go to Indo once a year for example. Of course there is a difference between going somewhere once a year and going somewhere once. Anyway getti...

Can’t believe that none of the baby-boomer longboarders have got the location figured out. I thought you all pride yourselve’s on being the “old guard” of those fkn dribbly north coast points.
