Re: Where did you surf today ?

Werri beach breaks can be pretty magic, but I don't rate the rock point off south werri. Bit of a hoax wave really. Also, you gotta watch that first cutback section with how deep you drive back into the pocket. Cutback too deep and you can end up too far behind the section on recovery , which means...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Nope. Was down south of the Gong. Wasn't sitting deep enough most of the time so I missed out on quite a few waves but all good experience for the next time. The swell was the biggest on Friday and has dropped considerably since then. Just got back. I paddled out at Sharky at Coledale on the way bac...

Was it a spot that required a boat ride? At least the backpacker didn't say "I didn't look to see you on my inside because I was too tired".

Re: Just general surfing stuff

So far, artificially constructed surfing reefs don't work.

Re: Lombok in solid swell ?

There was definitely more rain in late November last year compared to previous years. It didn't rain as much in the two seasons before that when I was there.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I have a pair of O'Neill Hyperfreak shorts in either size 30 or 31. I can't tell as the label has worn off and the sales order didn't state the size. They were great until they got too loose around the waist and I had to stop wearing them as they nearly come off when I get smashed. And my size 30 Qu...

Nah I don't whinge while in the water. If I'm having a bad time I sulk and fold my arms while sitting way out back, staring at the horizon.
