Re: Where did you surf today ?

Late arvo session north Maroubra on the incoming tide. Wind was light moderate with only slight ruffle, the faces were clean. 4-5 foot and punching above it’s size. Felt more like 6+. Easy paddle out, shifting take off zone, deep then wide. All about wave selection today. Got a few screamers that li...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Mid-late arvo session at north end Maroubra. Nearly four hours. Fun mix of ESE/ENE swells, peaky 3-4 foot with enough punch in the swell to keep thing interesting.

Some of the lefts were screamers that linked through to the beach. The 6’3 McCoy was on the money.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

So Hatchie, were you roaming around the Entrance in a Las Vegas T Shirt yesterday? What on earth are you dribbling on about? I went as far as blue bay and was wearing a Judas Priest shirt. And Las Vegas is a shithole. I’d never wear a LV shirt Today. 3 hours north Maroubra. Lumpy 3-4 foot, with som...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

It was a shitty swell. The size and punch was there but breaking like first shot of billiards

Re: Where did you surf today ?

had a dig at blue bay. was kinda ok. shoulder to head and a half high, washy conditions given the ESE wind and jumbled ex-TC swell. but still pretty fun. some of the sets linked thru, but it was all about the reform, the walled up inside section to carve up. the 6'3 vs the 6'6 nugget felt much the s...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Yeah well I’m not josh Kerr. I did however ride a twinny one time at rennies bombie at double overhead and it held in fine. Kinda like high speed skate bowl lines. Anyway. Sorted. Just walked out with a 6’3 McCoy nugget. Sticker price $825, got it for $700. And beancalipers, the big chunky round tai...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Rocker works best in hollow conditions and vee bottoms drag thereby control and stabilise speed.

What don’t you get ?

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Catch up with beany while you’re there? I’m not at Avoca. Still can’t get my head around riding a McCoy in solid Gold Coast waves. I kind of get the General McCoy idea but in dredgie point breaks? Spent many years scoring chunkier boards on the Gold Coast to take South and visa versa. I’d had it 18...

Yeah nah lol. But there were plenty of beanpole types there. And young man-bun haircuts with converted hiace campers.

I really do prefer the southern NSW coast. And Victoria.

TSA and/or McCoy?
It’s all TSA epoxy by the looks. Which I’m totally ok with. They’re chunky boards, and in PU they’d probably feel a little too heavy at those dims

Felt up a bunch of different shortboards JS bulls eye, raging bull, and hi fi. DHD something or other. Some dominator 2 mankine FireWire thing. None of them really appealed enough for me to throw cash at it. Had a look see at angourie and crescent, both maxed out blustery washing machines with nobo...

Grab an Album Twinnie ... you'll love it.
I’ve owned a few twin fins before. Fun in softer conditions but not too keen on them in reefs or anything of size and consequence.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

It looked better this arvo than when I was out there. Looked to pick up a bit this arvo when I looked out the front. Did you park where I suggested? It took me a little while living up here that rather than do a Beans and drive around looking for an elusive parking spot at Snapper. Now I park in a ...
