Re: Where did you surf today ?

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

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.

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

Re: Just general surfing stuff
