Duck probably isn't legal to drive until mid afternoon so surfing locally is best for everyone.
Mid morning good sir, thank you very much, i have a very efficient liver.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Yeah, I'm the the same. Been a dreadful, dreadful summer and autumn here......but up the road north of Byron to the QLD border there have been fun beach breaks. fcuked if I can be bothered though to drive 45minutes to surf 3ft beach breaks. I wouldn't last 2 weeks if I had to surf those junky Sydne...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

surely reefs not that far from you had waves BD? Yeah, no doubt there would have been a few switching on SS, but i tend to haunt my local few spots once i'm here and don't hit the highway much in search of other surf, mostly due to the fact a lot of the reefs get a decent crowd and there's generall...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

down south was one of those days today. Conditions were so beautiful mid morning, no wind, groomed swell with some grunt, water about 19-20 degrees, clear skies and that magic sparkle in the air that only autumn brings. The waves, however, were appalling. The island was an old man with dementia, con...

Re: Stringerless epoxy crease repair

Is this a troll Jet? Why would you buy a fundamentally fcuked board? Forget about it.

Snow leopards in the southern Mongolian mountains.
While i think i may regret stating the obvious, why have you started a thread with that non sentence? What's the significance? Where's the fcuking verb?

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Enjoying quads at the moment......though not yet this week. What the fcuk does that mean Beany? Does everything have to be a compromise? I surf a quad exclusively, meaning i can never be bothered to change up the fin configuration and the quads seem to work in the board i ride, i think, so that's h...

Re: Sunny Garcia

epic BD. how did you plant trees into a concrete footpath? For the red cedar there was a small cracked piece in the footpath so i got out my angle grinder and turned it into a small square hole, about 350mm. The tree did the rest, causing Council to make the hole bigger as the trunk thickened. The ...

Re: Sunny Garcia

I think also the gardening might just keep me hanging in there - because I want to see what the trees I've planted look like in 50 years. I have a similar thing AL, it's something i've been doing on and off for a while now. I've planted quite a few trees over the last 30 or 40 years, maybe 400 - 50...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Bitchen little surf at home. New MC 6'0" revee round pin, I turned it once and knew this was a fantastic board. Reverse vee is so strange, it's so soft underfoot but there's so much power and punch in turns. After the big 10 channel singly at Winkipop it felt like the easiest board I've ever ridden...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Forgot to mention the concurrent story that informs the above. Woke as the morning light filled the room and got up to make coffee. Started to feel a little like needing the can about 7am. Before 8.30am I had already been through a complete roll of toilet paper, having been to the shitter 3 times in...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

The late this arvo down south was fun as fcuk. Bout 4-5 ft fairly solid at the local swell magnet beachy, lined up and consistent, about 8-10 guys out and the LAGO helping to clean up conditions dramatically. The late autumnal sun was just catching the feathering of the sets, giving them an orange ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Happy days I’m thinking to move back but wifey is not keen Newcastle, at least on the coast and around the city and the hill, looks to be a great spot from what i've seen. Prolly plenty of other spots that are great as well in the area that i don't know, but that hill and the local beaches feel lik...

Looked like a good swell direction for Newie TSM , would've been good all day there i imagine, given the light winds.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

The late surf this arvo was tragic. Prolly 20 out, slow fading swell so not many waves, nor east wind which was cross off but the swell was so slow we were all sitting around like ducks in a pond. The mal riders were being greedy and paddling for everything, as usual. Fcuking hipster mal dudes every...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Bumped up nicely down south this morning. Swell has a bit of grunt and glassed off once the morning sickness disappeared. Turned to shit right on the cusp of high tide though and the nor easter is now up.
