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...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Thanks Mario appreciate that. I’ve got one (Nitro HyFi), trying to dial it in. It’s that “momentum” things you write about. I like drive in my boards so sort of coming to grips with the HyFi. Hardly surfed it back hand so interesting to see that Nice , what fins / system are you running ? Looks lik...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Went for the early . Swell has jumped since last night . Farm was maxed out so went and joined a small crowd at mystics . Was a bit hit and miss but managed to get a few . Always forget how hard that place punches .

Re: Where did you surf today ?

After being on call all weekend I finished at 4.30 and hightailed it to the farm . Only took my eps 5'7 after seeing home barely breaking so seemed like a good move . It was a very solid , 4 foot plus with a high frequency of clean ups coming through , heavy south swell . A lot of water moving out ...
