Re: Just general surfing stuff

Really. Ok then. I knew that Lynch was a pioneer and everything but I thought that MP was regarded as untouchable at the time. I also endorse Dane being included. No one other than JJF has grabbed me as being so far ahead (on pure ability) than those two. I remember Tommy saying if you wanted to se...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I’m a huge fan but basically Wayne Lynch did it all first.

No MR on there = bogus list
Not that big a fan but you can definitely drop him in instead of Dayne Reynolds.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Oh, yeah. I think I’ve still got an old Surfer Mag that had an article about him in it.

Yep, watching old footage of Wayne Lynch he was at another level to everyone else.
Basically the only person who’s idea of riding waves was what everyone tries to do now.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

One guy out getting a flogging at Bronte. There was two out this morning. Heaps of kids hanging onto the ropes at the pool. Really solid. Must have been two or three feet.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Too many scrappy SE winds in Sydney. Nice conditions this morning with a bit of drizzle and no wind. No swell at Bondi. A bit at Bronte this arvo but the wind was getting into it.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Yes, I was, Al. Living at Nth Bondi still at that stage I think. Friends lived around the corner in Hastings Parade. You could look over their back fence to the ocean where the sewerage pipe came out. Always lots of birds and fish swarming around the plume. Also quite often a trawler catching the fi...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Good stuff, Trev. Only downer was paddling a bit further out and realising there was a pool of poo out there. Must have come from a boat. Reminded me of the Bondi of old. Fcuk it used to be putrid. Literally condoms and toilet paper floating around out there on a bad day in a NEster. Water would be ...

Bronte is a solid wave on its day. Plenty of grunt.

Re: Just general surfing stuff
