Had a heavy contact full collision with a guy who dropped in on me, for one glorious moment I thought it was Nick Carroll.
Except taller and better looking?

Thumb sprain

Skating with my boys today, they were padded up, me not so. I chose to stop my board on my last run with my elbows and wrists. Bit of bark lost which is what I felt at the time but now 4 or 5 hours later, appears my thumb took the brunt as I can barely move my thumb or move it without shrieking. Sta...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Rarely surf Manly much, daylight savings and darker mornings limit my available options before work options.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I held a 6'9" CI Black Beauty for a long time. Sleek, beautiful board which i think would only get a run a couple of times a year. A couple of channel bottom Christenson's. Lost V3, SA Face Dancer plus a few JS's. I did wonder what happend to all these boards. Shapers release new models each year ye...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I went to a fe shops looking at boards this arvo, a while since I’ve done that.

The choice of models and styles is mind boggling. All it left me wanting was a few thousand dollars to buy 3 or 4.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Sunrise looked like the poster for Apocalypse Now.

Surf had some push but was relegated to some straight banks.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Not that you know me Channels, but no I'm not an ex pro who surfs maxing Sunset. However, can tell you lunch time yesterday the long reef car park was full and the there was a decent 4/5 ft that had a bit of power in it, not heavy by any stretch and it was packed off the lugga. I saw at least 3 guy...

Re: Summer

I don't understand this swell, or lack of, yet. Did the dawn run on Saturday, DY barely breaking and Manly really inconsistent. Flagged it for the early and hit it just adter midday. Saw a few rogue 5 footers but really a consistent and comfortable 4 foot. Sunday, felt like the south swell was bigge...

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

A second hander in the racks at the Aloha shop in Manly. Looks to be the gun shape at either 6’8” or 6’10”, couldn’t see the dims on it but had gloss coat and in exc cond. If you were inclined to chase 8 foot plus surf, you would feel pretty comfortable on it. As long as you are ok with the $1100 pr...
