Re: Bells Beach

Bells / Winki is the most unsharky place I've ever surfed. True two people have been nipped on the ankles there but nothing serious.

Surfers right to be total dickheads under threat

First fines for Jetskis at Kirra, now some lawyers want to sue longboarders who don't use legropes.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

3-4 ft clean as a whistle 2nd tier reef but it was better than the 1st tier spots today. Swell was a bit unusual for surf coast - consistent SW 12 sec swell, quite. Plenty of crew on it early but forecast was good all day - so went and had a coffee, read the news, tried on some wetties (didn't have ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Had a mate up from Bondi for new year and he was gobsmacked about the quality and lack of people compared to the Eastern Suburbs. Do you have room for a couple of caravans in your backyard Jimmy? Only if you can reverse park them. https://media1.tenor.com/images/220e03c49c400fe7a37979ade12711ce/ten...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Yesterday. 4-5 foot Winki, 15 sec period swell. Not crowded?! Paddled out at top end of Bells, but had bomb break right in front of me, ditched my newish stepup, resurfaced to find it in two pieces. No choice but to get washed in across the reef. Went out again on my fish. Got a couple off medium si...

It needs a nice mural. Wave parks in general seem strangely bereft of murals.

North NSW sharks. Can they come down to Victoria please?

Not happy with Ballina getting all the attention, Geelong council are trying to get someone chomped at Ocean Grove, by burying a whale on the beach. If you're not convinced this is a great idea - there's a petition: https://www.change.org/p/city-of-greater-geelong-remove-the-whale-carcass-from-colle...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Fickle and less renowned spot 4-5' Pretty inconsistent but with 6'+ bombs keeping the big crowd on their toes. Decided f*ck it I'll pick up some of the small ones on the inside. Got one that ran for ages and ended up well wide of the break, just as I was bemoaning the long paddle back a monster set ...
