Re: Where did you surf today ?

Whoa, swell really booted around 11am. Boom! 10', solid, long, pretty clean though the wind shifted a bit around midday. Super fun!

Re: J-Bay 2018

Yeah I watched 'em. I agree with thud (above) though I feel Sally especially is moving past that now, really done a lot of work on her style in the past year. Some of the women looked a bit overawed by JBay, and I bet they haven't been getting many set waves in the free surfing. There was a fair bit...

Re: J-Bay 2018

Right now, whenever Filipe wins, I think everything is basically OK!

I might go to Chopes now, just to go for a surf with him and ask him why that place fcuks him up.

Re: J-Bay 2018

So how are we all going re the Pool Benchmark? Like where is J-Bay in comparison? Pool benchmark? Since when is the pool a benchmark? I think you've got the cart before the horse.....it's the sports management brass at WSL who should be asking how the pool shapes up to Bay. Well that’s what I am ge...

Re: J-Bay 2018

Not totally convinced re the double/ triple bottom turn thruster rule. Wilko is one of the best at not doing it routinely. Somehow, it's become a super high-quality level aspect of surfing which might relate more to other design aspects than to the single factor of them being thrusters. How many re...

Re: J-Bay 2018

ha ha this is hilarious last night the WSL published kind of a mea culpa for screwing up the Facebook feed. Among other statements they said Oh we are going to re-instate the live feed on our website. Kind of a #floptus move So I just tried to do it and -- yup, doesn't work. and the FB feed seems fc...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Fcuken best day of the year, hands down.

Every beach with north end sand is off the hook. And pretty much every beach has north end sand courtesy of the endless sth swells of the past three months.

result, 4-6' plus reeling lefts with a handful of people kinda hanging on the shoulder.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

That rots fibreglass Fibreglass is chemically inert. Sunlight does not rot it. It also does not break down in landfill. Fibreglass is Evil!!! Steve may not have had a lived experience of a PU/PE board breaking down over time but I sure the hell have, numerous times. The deck and tail gets kicked do...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

well yeah that's why PU/epoxy is generally the go

they definitely break down, it's just a matter of how often you surf 'em and all that other stuff. I have 20 year old boards that go fine too but I don't surf 'em even once a month.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Any views on how long it takes a PU board to lose its spring. Is this an urban surfing myth? I've often wondered. Been riding a board with a Burford blank for about 5-6 years. Probably ride it about it about once a week at least, It's pretty yellowed up now (sun drenched from living in the back of ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Oh yes. Loofy has surfed Lennox Head. He first surfed it in the great July swell of 2001. He rode switch and dominated. Left the area the day Fanning showed up. Next, June 2007. He was the only guy out in the first swell of that six weeks of carnage. Surfed all day then headed south, where the real ...
