Re: Where did you surf today ?

Lennox boat channel this evening, alone. Was watching a few storm cells move by east and west, and then got hit by one. Was really cool, just sitting out there laughing. The wind and rain got so heavy I could barely see. Just as it was starting I could see a SUP paddling out across the lagoon and by...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

The southerly was already into the spots I was hoping for. And looked a bit smaller than yesty too. Was probably a few bombs but fuschia if you'd be expecting to be in position for them.
Might join the hordes at the pass this arvo and check out the festival.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Yesterday, checked the ox, 60 blokes. Boulders, 25. Surfed some real fun waves somewhere else with 2 blokes. This morning was offshore so went straight to local in ballina, solid shifty lefthand barrels, no one out at lighthouse or Shelley. Hard to get in the right spot but they were great when you ...

After my recent (and probably last) trip to Bali, I'm pretty well over the whole warm tropical overseas surfing experience. And by warm t...
