Re: winter

Flinders last weekend was a lot better Cyril's and Meanos are both really good waves Still are mate. A good thing as the beachies are all over the place. I've spent the last 15 years wis...

Re: winter

Gloves and booties now.

Saw some mad bastard out the other day at Flinders in a spring suit. Then he opened his mouth to reveal a richly toned pommie accent and it all made sense, Victorian water temps now must be like summer for them.

Had a decent surf on Saturday but no big monster swells yet

Re: Surf Trip to Kerala (India) in November/December?

Been to India 5 times, never for the surf though. Pretty safe place, locals are almost always friendly and if you can talk about cricket you'll have 100 best mates in about 5 minutes. Beautiful country and the food is incredible. Most people will understand some English but learning a few common phr...

Surfer dies on the Monrington Peninsula

Poor bloke, Crunchies at Point Leo is a pretty tame wave albeit shallow. Must have cracked his head on the reef or his board.

I've surfed on my own plenty of times, probably should stop doing that

Re: Bells

I'm going tomorrow. Hopefully there will be some waves.

Anyone else going? If so come and say hi, I'll be the guy with two little brats and a missus in tow!
