Re: Where did you surf today ?

Not that close. A good five metres in it. Thankfully your leg rope didn’t snap, or I’d now be monging out at beanmong levels.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Cronulla beachies. 3-4 foot. a bit too straight on the lower tide with a bit of a shit fight paddling back out. Got better on the incoming tide with peakier waves and less water moving. A bit hit and miss but still fun. Managed to get a couple of barrels. One was a quick cover up on take off then ki...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

National Park. Consistent chest high left peak with the occasional bigger set. Still fairly punchy for its size. Had it to myself for a while. Only three others out beforehand.

Re: post your modern day sickness

I’m still yet to surf it. That last run of good swell would’ve been ideal but I was crook for two weeks. Next 4 foot plus strong groundswell and I’ll see what’s up.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Royal National Park beach break. Peaky swell. A bit wonky and shifty but with plenty of waves coming through and still reasonably punchy. Sets were a good foot or two overhead. Rights were shorter, mostly a chance for a quick cover up if you were in position. The lefts had a decent wall and bowl wit...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

South facing cove beach down the south coast. Double overhead sets with occasional bigger ones at the peak of the swell. Surfed two x two hour sessions and got a stack of waves. Left and right peaks. Wedgy, and bit shifty with lots of water moving. But some great runs when you got into position. Sur...

10 channel ?
Like I said I'm on the two week 10 channel diet
Every surf till the end of May.
What’s the turning like ? Scram jet down the line mode with 45 degree climb-drop or can you surf top-to-bottom on it ?

Re: post your modern day sickness

Could also be the ... widest point being back from centre? That's definitely what it is. I'm not saying it won't work (what would I know) but it looks to me that I want the wide point pushed forward. and the fins are too far back. all the foam in this board is just wrong. all the curve at the back ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Some swell coming in this week Iggy, was thinking of another trip to our secret spot til I saw the forecast..... prob be too much for it Thursday/Friday.... With big straight south groundswells that spot will be big round slamming closeouts with funky cross-onshore winds. We’d have it to ourselves ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Swell has muscled up down the coast this morning. Solid double over head at least at local magnets, too big for the beaches. WSW blowing fairly hard, has killed off a few spots. Not here yet, it'd better show. I'm not putting up with these 10 channels for no reason god damn it Are you even going to...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Limited turn angles, very stripped back and basic type of surfing. But it does what it does well. That is, gets in early and goes like a bullet straight down the line. Still has a lot of bite and sensitivity in the tail end, for cutting down/back on and adjusting your line. Guessing it’s circa ‘75 ?...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

It’s got some rocker. Handles steep drops ok. Loads of foam up front and thins right out through the tail. Initially I bought it cheap just to do up as an art project and wasn’t going to surf it. But curiousity got the better of me. https://s31.postimg.cc/jslz6aiwb/7346_C2_D7-_DA91-4_E43-_B47_B-595_...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

It goes like a bullet down the line in big walled up groundswells. A few years ago I surfed Bells beach at double overhead on that thing. It was like a religious experience. Minimal input on my part. Board felt like it was surfing itself.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Mystics is the place to get to pitched that’s for sure. No room for error. Surfed greenhills. Long period swell lines with lotsa shutdowns but still a few shouldering peaks in the mix if you got in position when the sets came through. Surfed a chunky old 6”11 battle-axe pintail. Early roll in and st...

Inspired by Hatchnam, I am going to ride nothing but single fins for the next two weeks.

Ten channel single fins.

I’ll report back.
Attaboy! I’m heading to Wanda this minute with a big old pintail single fin to mow me down some long south swell walls
