After 3 or four near misses, I'm now really paranoid. No shark deaths is one of the great things about indo!
Care to elaborate on any Cranked? How near were the misses?

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Was rubbish down south, too close to the source probably. 3ft sets at best, closeouts everywhere. Wind went s/e and put a decent chop through it by lunchtime. Went out anyway as the tide came back in and the closeouts weren't quite as closey outy. Wasn't a bottom 50 but certainly wasn't anything wor...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

True dat. I remember John McGroder telling us it would be 2 to 8 ft before we got to a particular spot in the Ments on his boat. We were somewhat confused but he was bang on. Take off was 8ft, kick out at the end was around 2ft.

You could have dropped in on The Duck. Maybe you did.
No burnings this week end beans, just disappointment in where i surfed and my rank capabilities.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

fcuk i got so skunked today. Maybe 2 good waves out of 2 x 2 hour go outs. The worst of it was at the lake mouth this morning. The lake has closed over again, happened rather quickly after council had spent bucketloads trying to open it up by moving mountains of sand. It was epic walking down and ge...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

It’s up a notch or 2 this morning down sth. Bit cleaner but still has a wonk in it from yesterday’s onshore. Nowhere local is handling it. Local reefs are breaking wide. Beaches are shutting down. Swell needs to settle a bit. Be better up the coast I would think as the swell has a bit more time to a...

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

An interesting question is what happens when the 2-3 meter sharks, that are the bulk of those caught in the drumline “trial”, grow up a bit more? Will they continue to travel the coast, or stay down south more in seal territory? That said saw a couple of seals frolicking off woopi headland the othe...
