Re: Nicaragua

I'm looking at going for a few weeks in September and staying on the coast west of SJDS. As long as there is fresh fish and a few waves I'll be happy. Let me know how you get on Boo

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Had a point break to myself for a couple of hours over lunch yesterday with 3ft sets peeling for 100m along the rocks... less than 50km from the Sydney CBD :-o All other breaks in the area were blown out and junky.

Re: The winter of our content.

The first bump of swell had too much SSW in it and bypassed Sydney. Tonight's pulse will hopefully be directed for the northern beaches.

Nick, it was much bigger and better further north... :-)(

Re: Fantasy surfer comp

Yet you're still not amongst the top 10 mongs or top 10,000 overall?...

Although I do see you're doing well in the women's comp. That must be where you are utilising your all-seeing, all-knowing powers!

Re: Bali For Beginners

I have done Bali several times, solo, with family and with GF. Surprisingly going with a partner was the most enjoyable. Do Ubud - rice paddy tours on bikes, monkey forest, elephant temple, day trip to Bratan volcano and lakes (more scenic and less chaotic then Kalimantan), don't stay right in town ...

Re: Fantasy surfer comp

Not a great result, dropped out of the top 100. Although it is always pot luck at Rio.

Bring on big Cloudbreak! There's plenty of cheap goofy footers to choose from which will make selections difficult

Re: Where did you surf today ?

In Newie the wind turned SW just after dawn and the swell was a bit raw. Scored Tuncurry Wall at a fun 3ft for the early, then big long walls at Salty all afternoon. My arms are about to fall off!

Wax up your guns and chuck a sickie! It's been straight offshore all night and the buoys are showing lots of energy. :!:

Re: Fantasy surfer comp

Round 2 is about to start! No idea why they decided to go on hold this morning as the swell forecast shows dropping swell for the next week.

4 of my guys are in this round, 1 friendly fire...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

My hangover was greeted with a surprise offshore wind and 6-8ft waves this morning in Newcastle. I took some beatings on the paddle out then proceeded to snap my board on the very first wave. Should have stayed in bed. It is supposed to be bigger tomorrow so I'm heading north for a 3 day road trip! ...

Re: Fantasy surfer comp

Rio is so unpredictable. I'm keeping a few Fiji/JBay contenders that I got cheaply in earlier rounds even though they may be out early in Rio.

I'm still kicking myself that I dropped Nat Young after Bells when I bought him for $7M!

Re: Just general surfing stuff

The Merewether crew are known for wave sharing, also known as "let's take the drop anyway and hope the guy inside falls off".

Unfortunately there aren't many options in the area that hold 8ft+ so it get's busy on the bigger days.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Question for Novocastrians. Those BIG South Winter Swells that often get photog'd featuring those grinding mofo walls. I'm assuming it's Newcastle Harbour (or if not, where is it?) It looks epic and coming into the prime season I wanna have a crack at it soon. Tick it off the list. So what's it lik...

Re: Fantasy surfer comp

There are rumours of a late application for North Point as a backup venue. Imagine a couple of days of watching this! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n0ed-pcdgck

Hmmm it's tempting to swap someone out for Taj after watching that... :wink:

That's more like it AG! Things were starting to get dull around here. I thought you guys were supposed to be good at this game? You can't let a fantasy virgin beat you this easily! :-)( Any hot tips for big Margs? Surely the Hawaiians will perform well, with the Brazzos shitting their pants before, ...

Re: Bells

The badcast has some funny stories, though I'm not sure there's much truth in most of them. A combo of this and the official commentary could actually be listenable
