Re: Where did you surf today ?

And we had 4ft perfect point surf up here. Take your pick from Cooly to Burleigh. All were pleasant. The big thing I don’t miss about Bondi is having to travel when there are waves.

Sucked in.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

The people I spoke to said it is about 30% occupancy because of the volcano. You can’t get insurance that includes volcanic eruption cover.
And no salty I only had one onshore surf and that was the last day. Other than that I had 3-5 foot waves every day.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Echo Beach left? If so it was the same as the last time I surfed it a couple of years ago. Fairly easy take off if you get into them early followed by a bit of a barrel section and then it walls through towards the beach. You get a few nice double ups on the lower tide which are nice. I was astounde...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Where'd ya surf on the trip? Had 9 days on Lembongan with family for NY so surfed all the usuals there depending on tides and conditions. Then had another 6 days in Canggu where I pretty much surfed the left at Echo beach exclusively. Was going to head up to Balian to see a mate but he said that th...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Shitty Canggu. Wasn’t really up for it but have a policy of always surfing on the last day of a trip. Had clean waves every other day since the 28th. Have never been to Bali in the wet season but I’m now a fan.

If I live long enough, and my house isn’t underwater. I welcome our new north swell overlords.

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

A chest zip is far superior to a back. If for no other reason than there is less zip area to let water in when the seams start to go.
If I was a high flying surf industry mogul like Crabmeat or Shearer I’d go a zipper less all day every day.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

My girlfriend had one of those spastic party things today where they invite you along and ply you with booze in the hope that you’ll buy all of their shit. It was at Tweed so against my better judgement I checked out Snapper on the low. It was loads of fun and remarkably civilised in the water. Out ...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

The only thing worse than the Australian Open was those ridiculous airshows they used to have. I think they had one in Bondi when I was living there and I chose to slam my dick in my front door rather than watch it. Didn't Josh Kerr win that one Jimmy? Yes I believe he did BD. But if that’s the hig...

Re: Rip Curl Pro Portugal 2017

Yep. I’d rather watch this than a perfect point break. If they’re the best surfers in the world then they should shine in massive close outs.

Re: Rip Curl Pro Portugal 2017

Without looking at it too closely, I’d say this swell might be their only hope for decent waves. I agree, that first heat was a joke but they need to get through the draw and it’s starting to look better already. I can see very high scores in an hour or two.

Yeah it happened BD. I don’t judge anyone for that stuff but Owen had a serious problem.

Hey there, Owen Wright.
Sour grapes is never a good look
Yeah. Neither is taking a bucketful of coke before the Pipe Masters and having a stroke but blaming it on a duck dive. The day that it happened Owen didn’t even paddle out.

Re: Quiksilver Pro France 2017

Correct Duck. I reckon if Jordy loses this heat he loses the title.
