Re: Where did you surf today ?

Look forward to some pics or stories Steve. Hitting it Friday instead as the winds swing north which means straight offshore for where I’m planning. 8’0 gun and 6’11 pintail single.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Suggestion would be to hit up gumtree and ASAP sort yourself a cheap step or gun and get amongst it. Yep , thought about that and still thinking about it . I`ve just bought a bunch of fins to try out too , so not sure if the the minister will approve . She`s actually at me to reduce the amount of b...

“Looking for a nice wave with a deep reef that doesn't hurt”

:lol:

I’ve never been to the Maldives Steve. Are they gnarly? How do they measure up against central-to-southern NSW slabs and reef points?

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Jeez I dunno. Guess that the terms are interchangeable. From what I can decipher, the re-entry is a “vertical” turn off the top hitting the lip or a connecting section (as opposed to a slash that may or not be so vertical).

Either way, I’m sure Steven can do a re-entry 🤗

What. You mean a “backpacker barrel” ?

Doubt he’d lower himself, pun intended

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Steve could do eleven tricks I reckon

1) pop up
2) trim
3) floater
4) cutback (standard not full cranked roundhouse)
5) slash
6) snap
7) barrel
8.) 360 (once in 1989)
9) bottom turn
10) check turns
11) re-entry

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Cmon godsave. Almost guaranteed Steve would surf rings around you. Shit even I might, less tick tacks of course.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Yeah looks like it’s gonna be pretty big and grunty. The stiff west winds are a worry. It’ll be a trade off between size and quality.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

It’s not a bad strategy. My tactic is I average the reports out between SN/CW, then deduct 20% off their calls as over-froth/click-bait, and pack a couple of different boards so I’ve got options either way. Works a treat.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

What’s your gut feel saying for this Thursday Steve? For central-to-southern NSW? As I’m thinking of wagging work for it. Looks fairly promising so far.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Why wouldn’t you? It’s only one beach south of Bellambi and has much better waves. Today was marginal of course

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Cross-offshore peelers at east corrimal. Only waist high with the odd bigger set but still fun. No tick tacks, just gorilla 🦍 style trim to fade-cutty into the reform all the way to the beach. So “3 tricks” if you include the pop-up :wink: . Beroccapole would’ve been ecstatic with the conditions.
