Re: Where did you surf today ?

Queenscliff, windy as hell, not as big as what NC surfed but 3-4 foot. Hard to get into them but just offshore enough to be super smooth when you got onto one.

Not really crowded either. Heaps of waves to go around.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Dawnie at DY. Fun until the tide swallowed it up.

Tried the new channel bottom, it's a fun board but need to give it another run in slightly hollower conditions to see what it's capable of. Going to rip the tail pad off, carpet burn on my big toe from dragging it across the pad on take off.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Same experience as BA. Today, and earlier this week I’ve seen blokes surfing in Long John wetsuits, and this this morning 2 blokes in steamers. I was hot in a 1mm vest. Typical hot Sydney morning, left the beach at 7.30am and a car stalked me to my spot and was happy to wait, and block other cars, f...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

South Curlie, occasionly head high one outside. One or maybe two turns into the deep mid gutter. If you dont value your board, foam roll in to speed run on the inside shorey double up.

Given everywhere else is crap, a bit of fun to start the year.

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

Anyone tried a Needs wetsuit?

Looking at Springsuits this morning, tried on a back zip for the 1st time in ages. Back zips suck.

Webber shortie.

Same bank again this morning at 5.15am. Slightly bigger than last night, consistent 3 footers. Glassy with rain, 2 hour surf with plenty of waves to go around.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Fun 2 -3 footers at Manly. Despite the amount of people floating around, barely anyone surfing and beach was closed to swimmers.

If it was crowded it would have been a hassle but managing to grab 30 or so waves on a summer arvo exceeded expectations.

Re: Strahan tassie

Oh Australia, how needy you are. I know you want it to be special, steve. Different, somehow. But really, your USP is the weather and even that seems not so terrific when you examine the facts rather than the tourist brochures. Friend of mine, spent a year in Sydney. Said the waves were shit the wh...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Pushed the kids onto tiny waves on foamies up the coast. Took it for a paddle after, nipple rash after 3 or 4 minutes put that idea to bed.

These things look right up my street for what I’m after.

CI Peregrine.

Anyone ridden one?
Looks like every other higher volume shorty that every shaper does.

Someone else said it on here that someone sneezing in the next suburb will snap a CI.

Plenty of chest-high peaks with only two others out. Weird winds constantly swinging offshore/cross-shore/still. Then thunder and lightning. Loads of fun.
Pre or post high tide?

Had a shocker in fat burgery peaks just before the peak of the tide.
