Re: Where did you surf today ?

Took my 7'6 hybrid out for a run at longy. First time since it's been reborn as a single fin. Too small to get a feel for it unfortunately

My son's skating obsession shows no sign of abating.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Waikiki :-D-: hired a waterlogged 10 footer and joined the throng for a couple of hrs. Took a while to get a wave. I was too respectful and careful not to drop in. I soon realized dropping in is almost compulsory

Re: skateboarding ...

Presumably close to where you live there’s a snake run at north rocks. Your son (and you) would enjoy it. John Wearn Park, Cnr Balaka Drive & Farnell Avenue. Take a broom and a dustpan in case there’s sticks or junk in there. Open run you can roll into that winds and turns with banked walls you can...

Re: skateboarding ...

My 11 year old has got madly into skating. It's kinda nice because he's never really shown a passion for anything before. Now he constantly wants me to take him out to skate, and I'm starting to think about getting a little cruiser so I can go with him. I have a longboard/carver but I need something...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

^ agreed. there was something rideable at Collaroy but with a nipper carnival I couldn't get a fcuking park. Had a look at the corner at DY and was about to go home then grabbed a park. Paddled out at the point for my first surf there :wink: Small and fat but kinda fun for something different.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Longy was crowded too, plus some aggro in the water. Not bad but pretty all over the place when I went out. An hour later the crowd had backed off and it'd sorted itself out a bit. Decent albeit fat lefts and rights.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

There was dolphins? In that case you would be fine mate. I always figured they feed on similar fish so if there's dolphins there'd be sharks too. Do they bugger off when the dolphins are around? (I feel I should know more about this but to be honest I never really thought much about sharks until th...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

^^ Yeah thanks. It's actually coming up to a year ago things started going badly downhill, and didn't let up for about 4 months. I'm determined not to let it happen again

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Tuncurry breakwall huh! How do you like your sharks Ricky.?? Interesting you mention that. I was out there again this morning (lumpy and wind-affected). A couple of locals pointed out a chopper off to the north buzzing around. 'That's the shark-spotter'. There was a heap of birds and dolphins havin...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Had about 45min on some fun lefts and rights at longy before the northerly blew the crap out of it. That'll have to do me for another couple of weeks
