Re: Where did you surf today ?

Clean as a whistle 2 ft lines , a 3 ft set every 15 - 20 minutes. Still not quite enough push for a short board.
down Shearers way would have been excellent

Water was alive with good size dart. 100's of em

Re: Midlengths

Picked up and had a quick ride on the Takayama Mini. Haven't felt a board like this. Really thin flat deck and even rail but with a noticeable rocker. Must be hard to shape. Need to ride further before reporting but its velvety through the water, can take a drop and has the most insane biting botto...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

So I tried to watch the surf ranch thingy. Man, Kelly Slater has led the WSL on a merry dance hasn't he? What a complete elitist circle jerk. This grotesque cult like orgy of the privileged is truly repulsive. Sales and marketing 101. Don't lose touch with your customer base. I think the idea is to...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

The points were maxed out with crowds, swell was peaking at 2.5 metres of clean lines
So opted for an outside peak on the black sand beach - where all the surf schools take their clients
Long paddle out to a triangular bank that rolled ricely right and left plenty of punch

Back home tomorrow

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Whale Bay for a few hours in the middle of the day. Rode my 5-11 quartet home made - was hard to get my back foot on the board after riding an 8-1 the last 3 weeks. However despite my kooky footing I managed a few critical drops on the surge The inside section from the surge rock was pretty darn fun...
