Re: Where did you surf today ?

Pleasure Point is to Steamer Lane as Winki is to Bells One is more famous, the other just seems to work better in most conditions. Lots of crowds though and almost everyone was on a longboard, but I managed to snag a couple on a second hand 6'8" thruster I bought. Wave has a great shape, will be nic...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

There was a mal comp on when we were there the first time. It looks like a fun wave though. I guess if it was big you could catch waves down to Cowells and go in there pretty easily. Pleasure Point where I surfed is a few miles south. Huge surf area that can handle the crowds. A lot of the surf com...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Steamer Lane at Santa Cruz yesterday. Conditions were really small but it was my first paddle in months thanks to Stage 4 restrictions in Victoria so it was nice to be in the water. Cool surf break, the take-off next to the rock is weird but it works, and fcuk me there is so muck kelp in the water. ...

Re: 2020

Surfed my backside off over Autumn and Winter, got my paddle fitness better than it has been in years and had some amazing surfs

Then Stage 4 kicked in for Victoria and my wetsuit has been dry ever since

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I bought a nice secondhand 6'6" at the Midtown Surf Shop in Santa Cruz today. Generously volumed for my solid frame. Round tail so it'll suit nice drawn out turns - never been one for the snappy pro-surfer shit as I find it exhausting and, if I'm being really honest, I suck at it! Nice fella I bough...

I'm not loving the idea of my son wanting to take up surfing.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I literally saw a guy do a handstand on a longboard yesterday. Never seen that before.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Big Left at Flinders, second day in a row. Perfect conditions, blue sky, sunshine and 3 metre on the face swell trains. Why would I ever go back to travelling an hour and 10 minutes to and from work 5 days a week and miss out on this? I'm more productive in this climate than I ever was in the office...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Not today but yesterday I surfed Gunnamatta over lunch. Fcuk me it was good, super clean, plenty of power. Shit load of people out but standard wasn't high so I got my fair share. Heard that my office may not open for my team until later this year - that means lots more surfing in my future, assumin...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Gunnamatta - swellnet called it 2 foot but it was more like 3. Either way nice smooth conditions, looking good for the next couple of days as well Had a look just a little after your post time. Light onshore, but a few tasty ones. Didn’t see the station, but based on cars, probably pretty good. The...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Surfed Big Left at Flinders two days ago. It was one of the nicest surfs I have had in a very long time. Beautiful clean water, glassy conditions and easy long rides.

Spoiled only by the view now being destroyed by some massive house being built on the cliff. Damn shame
