Re: Where did you surf today ?

After a couple mediocre days here I decided to paddle out yesterday afternoon into homes heaving shitfight . It was breaking 4-6 and I`d reckon only two in 10 were even remotely makeable . Got out only for a whole ten minutes of bombs just rolling through - all closeouts . One stood up nicely , shit...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

After an afternoon of constant heavy lifting yesterday had some time left so ducked up the road and home looked like it was firing . 4 foot plus with little crowd , sure looked good peaks everywhere . Didn`t watch long , paddled out but it was that hit and miss kind of swell . You could never sit in...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Two sessions today . I`d been riding the step up last few days to get some time on it before the swell hits and surfed it again this morning at the farm which had probably the shittest waves its ever produced on offer - the tide didn`t help either . Didn`t stay long went home and then checked home w...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I took my step up out last few days to get some time on it before the swell hits . Was not much swell here and has backed off today so jumped back on a small board - maybe should have stayed on the other . The winds are not looking favourable for here but talk on forecaster blogs is there`ll be wave...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Two surfs today . Quick one this morning before the tide filled in was fun albeit inconsistent . Some bigger set waves showing what tomorrows swell will be like . I`ve taken 3 weeks off to do a bathroom reno and after jack hammering most of the day thought I`d go back out . Swell filling in nicely b...

I imagine there's quite a few Realsurfers who are good with weed.

Oh! Wait!😱
Yes yes , I had quite a penchant for that in my youth .

Re: post your modern day sickness

I did expect perfectly manicured lawns and edges and also to see tomato plants. That is a great spray though, Mario. I have a dislike for mowing and snipping . Especially when you have to do it every week . We tried the whole growing veges thing ages ago but we were definitely half assed at it . We...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Real hit and miss this morning as the tide filled in . Got some good ones and had been waiting ages for my last one only for me to kook style it on take off and fall . Oh well , proceeds to paddle in , talks to the crew watching - mercifully none of them gave it to me for my indiscretion .

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Wow , real long period . Had an hour for lunch and home was sending bombs every 10-15 minutes . Only managed 5 waves , but they were quality to the sand waves lefts and rights . Right shame too as if there was more sand on the beach it would have been completely mental given that a lot of three foot...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

More on topic , I got up for the early but felt like shit . Drove around a couple of places and with the swell backed down and getting some east into it opted to go home drink coffee and log on for work . North easter started up so decided with an almost low to hit home for an hour lunch break . Lon...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Also Mario you should know it's a Realsurf article of faith that my board choice - McCoys - is the worst possible choice of all boards currently manufactured anywhere in the known world. I've ridden hundreds of other boards before and since discovering them though and I always come back to them. We...

I feel like my super early sessions are between pulses on this swell. Every arvo it seems to be twice the size of the morning.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I've been riding them for decades (and PUs) and I thought their stiffer and faster flex was an advantage. The Surfboard Agency does epoxy with a stringer for those who want a foot in each camp. Cranked, I never knew you were an eps guy. How longs this been going on? Since about 1993 for windsurfers...
