Re: Surfers right to be total dickheads under threat

I got hit in the head by a long boarder, broke my skull in two places and I now have a plate and 4 screws for life. To be honest if you don't use a legrope you're a farken arse if you take a board out in decent surf. Did he have a legrope on or not though? He did, my point was more that your abilit...

Nah mate I actually forgot about this till I just read your post!

Re: Summer

With all the baby boomers and their grandkids I'll bet :lol: Truth be known that place can get pretty big maybe a couple of times a year. I've surfed pines when the swell was cresting over the outer boat markers (would have been 3 metre swell on average) in the dead of winter in a storm and it's pre...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Nah, that's the weird thing. It's always just been a reef. Historically, at the size and tide it was yesterday it would break about 80 m from shore. 50-60 m was then a fun Wally wave made for turns then running into a bowly section over the "suck rock". Only then did sand come into play and occasio...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Was at Pt Leo this morning. Didn't surf 'cause of work - I just wanted to look at 1st Reef to try and figure why it doesn't work anymore. Everything was in place for it to be as I remembered. Good size, right tide, but it just doesn't break like it did Meantime, where Groots probably was looked as ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Didn't find much quality in far south NSW a couple of weeks ago, surfed Quondola and Pambula river mouth but the surf was small and a bit junky This morning I surfed 2 - 3 metre swell at Pt Leo on an ocean as smooth as a glass table - nice to be home Hopefully will go back there again though, Pambul...

Re: Surf helmets - hopefully Roy fcuks off

Well let me know if you want a black xl Gath once you're done testing. Any headaches or vision issues? Will do mate, XL would be my size I would think too so I'll let you know. No major headaches and the vision has been fine the whole time - I haven't had a painkiller since Monday morning. The visi...

Surf helmets - hopefully Roy fcuks off

So anyway, last Sunday just before finishing up at my local a guy on a massive longboard ran into my head with his fins. He was deeply apologetic and had tried to turn the log but couldn't do it. End result I came up with blood pouring out of my head from a near 10cm cut and and a raging headache. H...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

You're Victorian (Melbourne?) and never surfed either of those waves before? Nah Mornington Peninsula - other side of Port Phillip Bay. I've surfed Jan Juc and 13th before but that's it. I've actually surfed more in Sydney than that side of the coast Was bloody good too, great waves Grooter's kind ...
