Re: Look at Me Now headland

cheers Toots, you in the mood to help a brother out with a flathead spot or 2.
what about a headland that holds jewfish?

Will take longboards and mids and see what happens.
Octafish is always a solid small wave choice and can get barrelled in A frames.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

was fun here. I kind of wound everything down after that last winter swell....felt like a natural time to take a pause after what has been a very intense surfing program. Then when Nick got taken and the general high number of white sharks around....it seemed disrespectful not to give that some spac...

Re: La Nina 20/21

yep.

20ft+ with 20 second periods??????

that sounds like an old sailors tale.

would take a very special system to produce that on the east coast.

Re: La Nina 20/21

feeling so La Nina like around here. moisture in the air, cumulus towers every day out to sea, E swell still continuing, very much attenuated northerly pattern. thanks for your contribution Nick, don;t be scared to come in here and throw in your 2 cents worth. Loof won't bite. He feels a bit inferio...

Re: Nth NSW sharks. Can they p!ss off already?

saying they are curious and bold, occasionally aggressive is not the same as calling them "one dimensional killing machines" I think Braithy might call that over-dramatic. Lets have an adult, nuanced conversation Coops. whites in the surf zone, esp the juvey/sub-adults we see up here seem to exhibit...

Re: La Nina 20/21

last big one was 2010/11, which was primarily noted for the Brisbane floods.

not esp. amazing for surf.

Although Spring 2010, in the lead-up, was fcukn amazing.

I like this little corner of RS.

Just me you and Loof.

Re: Nth NSW sharks. Can they p!ss off already?

yeah, can't see QLD pulling those nets, or at least not without replacing them with drums. I just find it ironic that people say there will never be a cull because of popular opinion when there has been a culling program in place for 60 years. humans rarely like to face the extent of their actions....

Re: Nth NSW sharks. Can they p!ss off already?

It's also worth noting ; I'm not banging the cull drum but the QLD shark control program which has been going since '62 is an actual cull. its stated aim is a program to remove large dangerous sharks from inshore waters. it kills sharks. People saying 'we don't want a cull" are in a state of delusio...

Re: Nth NSW sharks. Can they p!ss off already?

bodies were mostly retrieved by other people. Brad Smith was bitten in half, others without much left. I'm not insinuating we are part of their preferred prey spectrum, but quite clearly white sharks are predators that attack human beings. Thats just what happens. Not the timid, peaceful creatures t...
