Re: Where did you surf today ?

This arvo was fun. 2-3 foot classic wind swell conditions. Crumbling peaks with a tasty inside bowl. Plenty of room for turns.

Re: Quiksilver Pro France 2017

Totally. Some of those waves do a fair impression of wonky groundswell maroubra surf

Re: Quiksilver Pro France 2017

From the heats I’ve watched I have to agree. I’d rather watch them wrap their heads around the more uneven conditions of French beachies and see how they respond, than watch the rinse and repeat attacks on point surf.

Re: Quiksilver Pro France 2017

Biarritz* is a softcock wave. My already low estimation of the The Mighty Sunbird's surfing ability has slumped down a further notch or two (* Except, you probably don't mean Grande Plage at all, do you, and instead are doubtless using 'Biarritz' as a catch-all for the whole of SW France, much in t...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

sorry but not sorry but this surfing looks like utter shit and it's boring.

the same turn over and over again and everything in between looks wrenched, underpowered, flappy and fking hideous.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Mid-north end maroubra. Four plus and heaps solid. Lots of shutdowns but now and again there'd be a good peaking grinder throwing up a length of wall. Surfed the new 6'4 single. Handled the conditions well. Heaps of hold and drive down the line.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

North corner of a Royal National Park beachie at dawn. Three foot plus, pretty punchy but fairly jumbled. Started to sort itself as the tide filled in a bit and the offshore wind picked up

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Nulla beachies. Pretty crap really. Straight backwashy and no real defined banks. Kinda starting to improve just now with the dropping tide. Checked voodoo on first light but swerved it. A sizeable and solid swell but the west wind causing it to shift back and forth across the take off zone, unpredi...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Pretty ordinary but still worth a paddle. Surfed it from before first light til about 7am. Was a touch bigger earlier on with a few overhead sets. Wonky and fairly weak but still some ok runs. Got this pic just for Steve Shearer. Storm water bank with seagulls bathing in the run off. Breath it in St...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Dawn tomoz. 2-3 foot ENE swell at 7-8 sec with a light WSW wind with the tide running out. peaks will be ripe for the pickings.

Re: Pyzel Nugget Vs Hypto Krypto

I'd get a JS blackbox roundtail or something close to it instead. The HK and PN don't look as versatile for standard Sydney surf (sectiony beachies etc). They look more flowy, whereas the BB looks more like you could snap it in the pocket.
