Re: Where did you surf today ?

Yarra Bay had a pretty gnarly shorey this morning. Close to a foot on the sets. The Nippers handled it, but one monster set wet the bottom of my shorts.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Update: The web cam gear that was pointing at main break at Green island from a discreet position has been found and removed. It wasn't tossed in the drink (that's pollution, i was rightly told), it resides in full working condition at a safe location. Fairly sophisticated bit of kit. If the person...

Re: Best softboard to use to teach kids ???

Yeah, when I push him in, it's fine. I reckon softboards probably aren't for bellyboarding and that's part of the problem.

Re: Best softboard to use to teach kids ???

My kids started getting into the 6' Grommy softboard I bought them last year. They were just riding on their stomachs. My daughter was doing fine, but my son couldn't not nose dive. I tried many techniques with him, but there's only so far back on a board you can lie before it's a tombstone. It has ...

To add insult to injury, I had to make the tea when I got home.

This reemergence of the wave height thing is going to see a lot of ToTY nominations. Keep it up.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Maybe the SW one looks a bit off-putting to some, not a good cultural fit or whatever, but I can tell you it does not arise from a cheesy place in Blakey and Co's hearts, they really want to do social shit and bring people together. Our (my) cynicism is probably more a function of having seen the G...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Still, I reckon they should have issued surfing licences back in the 60s and capped the number available, as per the taxi industry. That would've kept the crowds down.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I would quite like a thing like that that was focussed more on actual surfing rather than incorporating so much of the wellness industry. But, any actual surf camp is usually grom-focussed and I'd feel like Donald Friend.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

@Steve, you've inspired me. I'm gonna fcuk any work off this weekend and go surfing. In fact, I'm gonna take a trip down memory lane and hit the northern beaches.
