Re: Where did you surf today ?

Went for a swim this arvo.....everywhere looked better than Manly earlier.....still crap but better. You always have to allow for the overview when looking at Tama. Waves always look better from a height.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

What criteria are we using? Well if you don't mind me suggesting, I think it is really more about how hard core we come across here on RS. It can have fcuk all to do with how good you are. Like who knows what really goes on? All we have to go on is the claiming, the surf checks, the stance one take...

Re: Indonesia July school holidays?

Never had much desire to hit GLand.....and that has only diminished as I get older. Probably a bit different if you're a goofy foot. I know one fairly basic ability surfer who went there and got half scalped.

Re: Indonesia July school holidays?

I will never forget the first time I lobbed in Bali in 1982. It was the last place I went to in Asia and it was a welcome relief from some of the travelling I'd been doing. Anyway the point of this is I ran into this party of Aussies....a couple on their honeymoon with a couple of friends. They were...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Wait.....it's a southerly....Easterly Swell. Often duck over in those conditions. Can do it in half an hour on a good run.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I'm presuming most or at least some of the regular Gold Coast surfers would be better given the fact that they are considerably younger as well. Cranky definitely gets most points for commitment. Hatchie has to get points for commitment also for driving relentlessly in his bid to escape Maroubra eac...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Well I've just had the worst surf I've ever had at Manly. Thought I'd drive over for something to do. Didn't bother looking. Just went out. Totes crappy.....also putrid water and a bit cool. DeeWhy and Curly looked similar. Closing out and sucking on the shallow banks.

That sucks. Pity a boycott by Realsurfers wouldn't put him out of business.

Re: Indonesia July school holidays?

Okay....still heaps of waves in Bali. I've been going there since 1982 and I still seem to end up surfing somewhere new each time. Not much money in promoting it though. July is prime surf time so anywhere on the Bukit will be crowded. Lots of waves everywhere as well though. Easy to go to Lombok fr...

Re: Summer.

So they were saying this summer has had the least cyclones or hurricane strength winds since 1974. That's why it's been so hot.
Probably in for one gigantic one.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Re: wetsuit

Yep....had to scrape the tar off the road too. Actually we used to do that to patch up our tin canoes when I was living in the country. We would wait for the council to repair a pot hole and go and dig out the tar. Heat it in a can. Council must have loved us. My first spring suit was an American Di...

Fair play loofy. I think you actually mean it when you say it. And you're correct. Before you know it the place will be the next Ulu's.
