But the Webber V wave speil said property values triple near good surf breaks!
That's not all that far from the truth, in Narrabeen and southern California at least.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

'Recreational amenity of the beaches' is the key phrase in the deeds and legislation, Steve. Neither act, nor the original deeds, nor the schedules include any mention of waves or surf. As far as I am aware the only mention of maintaining or improving surf in the original paperwork and planning is i...

Weather patterns for the rest of June look like they were drawn by a drunk. More spring than early winter.
So spring-like here.
smells, weather patterns, clouds in the sky; everything.

Yesterday's Qld budget upped the funding for the shark control program, BTW.

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

Some big balls on those groms. I've seen a lot of sharks in the surf. Been bumped once in Indo. Only places I've been scared enough to rapidly exit the water have been Spookies near Angourie, and Gracetown. Couple of other places in WA where I haven't paddled out, including once with legion in the M...

Re: Fish

Fwiw I think your fish is too big. I am 6'0 and was 74kg and I rode a 5'4" when I lived in San Diego. Could ride down to 5'2", and wouldn't go longer than 5'8". Different waves though. I think a fish shape is a bit limited but I have a 5'6" summer board that's fun as hell in small clean surf. I don'...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Man I started feeling my age a while back. This was different. Ah well it's passed now. Maybe the intensity of the surf matched the intense emotions you've described in recent weeks. A similar feeling of being surrounded by something powerful, but a greater sense of control or comfort or just abili...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

JJF v Andino on right now.

I haven't drunk the Kolohe-Aid, I don't get what's so great about him that he wins heats.

Seems like a very good surfer in the middle third of the wave, with slightly above average aerials.

John's making him look silly.

I've seen about a 14' tiger before. I doubt it was a good thing. But I'd prefer a tiger to a white.
Bethany might disagree but I get the point.
One of your home breaks has a big resident tiger, Jimmy.
Minibus big.

Sharks love those thermoclines.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Worth a look at the site loof suggested, Steve. They've got an O'Neill reactor 3/2 for $117. Saw that: flat lock seams are useless though. It's barely worth a 50 spot. Couldn't see a decent wetty on there for under 300 https://www.hyperride.com.au/product/92174/oneill-2018-superfreak-bz-3-2mm-steam...
