Re: Where did you surf today ?

Fun in the sun with offshore winds and lots of waves at a popular Eastern Suburbs Secret Spot today. Felt really off kilter since I hadn't surfed for a week or more. Once I actually caught a few though it was all good.

Re: Single fin shortboards

A subtle nose blow or wrist adjustment on the wettie is statement enough.

I guess now that Ballina is GHQ for sharks the shark problem over there isn't as pronounced.

Re: Every trannies nightmare

I truly feel sorry for Westerly/Peter. I interviewed her just after the surgery, it was a very emotional time and she was clearly an incredibly vulnerable human being who was trying to make sense of what must be an overwhelmingly confusing experience. True, Steve....it's easy to take the piss....bu...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I'd probably have a mal out at Currumbin half the time. Frequent trips north and south. I enjoyed hitting Burleigh a couple of times over the last while too. A couple of B Grade spots on the Tweed Coast would feature prominently.

I reckon I'd miss surfing the Mid Nth Coast a lot.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I've always had a soft spot for the Gold Coast. Spent a bit of time up there again in the last couple of years. It's got more of a city feel now. I could easily live there these days......or within striking range of there and Brisvegas .....trouble is the surfs too crowded.

Re: Nth NSW sharks. Can they p!ss off already?

Apparently a good number of bulls were tagged in the Bellinger river while testing the smart drum line alert system. Also numbers tagged at various times in the Richmond, Macleay, Manning etc. We always swam west of the weir at Murwillumbah. Don't think sharks could climb over. You still occasional...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Yeah I think i need to surf it on a twin fin and send it north a few times to add some zest to it. It was pretty boring at fat 2-3 foot on a single fin. Seems just like a longer version of arrawarra Yep, only got into it again when I started riding a mal. It's much better out the end in an East Swe...

Re: Nth NSW sharks. Can they p!ss off already?

Just remember Ben Cropp introduced the power head speargun in the sixties and proceeded to blast every shark he could find around SE Queensland and Nth NSW. Mostly Grey Nurses but anything was fair game.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Saw it going off its tits at that size last year.
I can think of two absolute definites and five possibles in those conditions in that area.
Also no ones mentioned Box Head.

Of course Great Whites can easily swim from WA to the east coast of South Africa.
