Nick, does a Newport Plus Boardriders Club comp have any point beyond clearing the break for your own amusement?
a) I don't go in N+ contests any more but sometimes I judge a few heats
b) We don't clear the water, it’s just like a normal surf except four of the people have singlets on.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Fcuken great day down here yesterday. Flat in the morning. Swell started edging a bit around 9.30am. Good surf vibe in the air with the cold wind and deep SW cloud switching off with sun. I went for a surf around 11.30, the swell moved from 2' to 4-5' in two hours. The N+ crew set up and ran off a c...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Back zip? His post says chest zip. Or are you suggesting a back zip wouldn't fail.if so, I'm with you on that. If you can't reach around (😀) and pull up a back zip, you shouldn't be surfing. If you can't put on a zipper less full suit, you're a fcuken idiot. :D I've seen a few guys getting into and...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Lil play surf in a quieting E and SE swell combo, felt so much like autumn should feel

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Re: Where did you surf today ?

ahh the peak is pretty tidal, at low tide it'll happily break at 3', the bigger it gets the further out it breaks along the rock line. High tide shuts it down mostly. It's sandbank dependent so if the sand sets up badly, it can be shit even when it's breaking

Are you surfing the beachies or reefs at Newport nick ?
well a bit of both, the peak is a reef that tails off into beachies, plus I sorta tend to roam off that into different lil sandbanks

wooo bumpy slabby fun awkward play surf again today, 3-5' and semi clean for a while before the SE showed up testing two boards, 5'10" and 5'11", same outlines and tails, quite different foils and bottom shapes, fascinating to try to pick apart the effects. I have another one to test, the one I thou...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I would add c) surfing is still growing and developing as a culture here in Australia and in most other places around the world, just because for a while the Aussie surf culture looked pretty adolescent etc does not mean it is now or will be in the future. I think Fiona is remembering something that...
