Re: bonzers.....the quad fad is over

Agree with that Steve.

In junky or slower surf, need the thruster to get the snappier direction changes.

Re: bonzers.....the quad fad is over

My Mini Merk is just a phenomenal board. Had a longish righthander this morning had a heap of speed up and put it all into a big carve/cuttie on the end section. It just felt so right.

Definitely not an everyday board, don’t want it in junky stuff but in good conditions, it flys.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Pre dawn surf. Glassy 3 foot or so, peaky and super fun.

Tide made it too fat so out of the water at 6.30am.

OK so the next seven or eight days is gonna be the most bang up mental fcuken period of surf along much of the NSW coast for this year.

Let's see what you get. Fcuken wake up and be Realsurfers for once.
I'm guessing you mean once this wind finally shifts?

Bodysurfed the left ripbowl down the south corner. Heaps of fun. Been at least ten years since I’ve taken it out.

Rip bowl at DY. Looked like river rapids paddling out but only one other guy on the peak and a heap of waves.

I hate posting after Cranked's indo updates

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Nulla beachies chest to head high plus. Dead south swell and long period = mostly shutting down but the smaller ones in between sets had some makeable ones with a wall and shoulder. Surfed the 6’4 single. Managed to get a nice little barrel, though the whole wave shut down just after I came out. Sa...

Footage of Renato Hickel, WSL dude surfing Kelly's pool.

As a competent but obv's recreational surfer.....he makes the wave look pretty ordinary.
It looks like the power has been dialled back a bit, not as hollow as the pro's surf it?

Back at Longie for the early. Nowhere near as good as yesterday, tide a bit too low plus a bit of morning sickness from the overnight winds.

Yeah there were some fun peaks and bowls about. Nothing powerful but plenty waves coming through.

Was that an ex-Loofy bonzer ?
Yep. A 6'4" Mini Merk, loves a wall to drive along.
