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

Pretty hard to get good statistics out of the smart drumlines data. They have been in place for the two years of the study only at Evans and Ballina.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I gotta get me a handplane. What one have you got? One of these https://www.podware.com.au/pod-handboards-solid-plastic-bodysurfing-handplanes/ Add some body boarding fins, and you’re set. Solid workout though, lots of swimming and treading water. I can vouch for those handplanes. Forget the hipste...

Pretty seasonal looking, but as mentioned doesn’t mean some move against the grain or hang ...
