Re: Just general surfing stuff

Nice turn but he's not moving much water. Just a little foam spray (jokes) He's a noted power surfer. Free surfing on a rippable beast. It's rare. I'm talking across the board. Thruster cutties look lite and easy to me. Maybe they don't like the rail engagement. He's on a CI Black Beauty in that pic.

I broke my vampire hours rules today and went out in the arvo when the sun was still up. It burns!

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Conditions today didn't justify getting sun on the skin, that's for sure.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Ditched the board I was riding for the last year for my 6'3" Simon Anderson Mollusc today and caught the most number of waves in ages. That'd probably float me. The mollusc gets a pretty good review just about everywhere, what do you think of it ? I like it though it felt like paddling a boat yeste...

North End was the place to be. South was flat.

Backzip all day every day. Tried a chest zip once and hated it.
Not you too, my brother. You aren't at the geriatric stage yet.

Back zips are just way too hard to get into and out of, you need the simplicity and the joy of the longjohn and front zip long sleeve top combination for real ease of access.
What do you think of chest zips and zipperless suits then?

Well lets face it - indo reef breaks are a lot easier to anticipate where the shoulder is than beachies
Exactly. Though I am glad to be back over sand in summer.

I hate that. Take it on the head you sook.
I'm an expert at paddling over the shoulder in time to avoid having to do a duck dive. I think I did more duck dives on my first day back at my local than I did in one week at a reef break in Indo.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Had a better than expected session on the late at my local yesterday. I paddled out and the line up only had Japanese surfers.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Surf-wise, 2017 was a regression compared to 2016. My wave count dropped heaps. It was fitting that my last wave of 2017 was such a screw up as it pretty much summed up the year for me.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

On second look, that Firewire nose wasn't creased .. It was buckled. I could see the foam beneath the cracked wooden deck.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I, for one, did not crease a Firewire nose against a rock at low tide today. I'm like a safety first sideways passing defensive midfielder so I go for the high percentage passes.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Weak slop with gusty onshores in the rain. More swell is needed for a take off over deeper water. Looks like Wanda on a bad windy day when the wind and kite surfers are out.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Let's just say that left hander was completely different to the reef breaks I have surfed before.
