Re: Maurice Cole's tour of bells

ithink you guys need to get down there a bit more.

the shire has revegetated the whole of the cliff top from bells to torquay.
maintained the paths, removed problem plants...

its no garden of eden. it always has been a farm covered in turd, with a cliff and a small
sh!tty beach.
get over it.

Re: Maurice Cole's tour of bells

there are good dunnies in the lower carpark near the bells break.

if you need a turd they come well recommended.

all locals know this,

its the blow ins that dont and they [email protected] in the bushes between winki and bells.

maybe all thats needed is decent signage?

Re: Stuck which board to get now…

You could go way shorter with a McCoy single-fin. Thanks Steve, yeah I reckon a Mccoy Single fin would tick all the boxes. What length do you reckon? Ive seen a guy surfing a 6' (2" there abouts) Mccoy and that was going splendidly. Seeing Ive mostly ridden Mals Im a bit worried about loosing 3' of...
