Neilsen Park. I've body boarded it with my son when he was much younger and watched it quite a few times. Nice set up over a shallow sandstone, barnacle encrusted rock shelf.
Jumped off the ferry to surf it.
But true to the title going to Nazare this European winter, photos and terrification.

Re: Otway is Back

What's the food like otts? Man I love the mini crusty pastry baked custard tarts, about size of a fifty cent piece but oh so wow! Good thing they’re so small a man could a nasty plimsol line if they were bigger. Surfing sort of well but finding out what parts of my abdomen are not stitched together...

Hitting the Atlantic, pulled my body into some resemblance of surf fitness and been surfing Lagido in Baleal near Peniche. The WSL leg here has generated a mass of surf schools and the general population of graduated students have en Masse the exaggerated Poo stance with starfish arms into usage. St...

I have reincarnated under my original name.

Good to hear Otts. I still get a chuckle thinking about you leading the Realsurf foray down to the Enzed surf forum.
Loved doing that, talk about hook line and sinker!

Re: Where did you surf today ?

First surf, Jigama, mild mellow uncrowned and small, paddled out and had just enough strength to get three waves. Each was an improvement in lessening wobble and increase and returning skill. Rode the last to the sand and wearily waddled up to the car. A start and I am pleased , and was excited. Tom...

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

Now to tie it all together! There is a large population of counter culturists in the hinterlands , some of whom surf. The cuttagee crew migrate to Byron for the cold winter months and revert to south coasters for summer. There is a whole art scene from Tilba to Pambula that wavers and waxes and wane...

They are coming south!!

Maybe it's the warming water , maybe the whales coming back, maybe it's about to become an annual phenomena (Tathra's in February). Now a large bull shark has been sighted at the very back of the Merimbula lake a number of times. They have been there before! Given there is a fish cleaning platform m...
