Re: Where did you surf today ?

Yesterday Bondi had some decent hollow lefts and interesting Bowly rippy rights near the Ramp and a pretty user friendly right up near the pav.
Smaller today but still got a few after paddling around to a few different banks.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Most places are. There's quite a lot of good set ups around there but as usual the fickle swell conditions predominate.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I think I would tend to agree. Haven't bothered to surf there very often but it's definitely got an impressive range.

I prefer the Nth Beaches though and generally hit the Coal Coast if I'm venturing out of the Eastern Suburbs.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

So Nat Young says Northern Beaches are pretty average (true compared to Yamba) but it’s even worse in the east and the southern sydney beaches according to the great man. Think I’ve surfed at Maroubra once. It was ok. No arguments here. It's not much of a news flash. Every dog has its day however.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Nice stuff, Duck. Like so much technology Asia was light years ahead of the West. Not to mention aesthetic theory.

One of reasons China could produce porcelain was because they had worked out how to create a blast furnace using bellows and raise the temp higher than anyone else.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Well, you're an architect rather than an Engineer, Duck. You're just looking at it from an aesthetic point of view. Architects like wabi sabi because it is an excuse when they Fcuk something up.

Yes, most products are manufactured with a weakest link. This is actually important as it is engineered to fail n a relatively safe way.

Summer seems to have arrived today. Car parks packed and so is the beach.
Got a park and had a fun session on the foamie.

Maccas/Tama/Bronte looking pretty good. Tended to get held up in the lip and hard to see who you were aiming at but fun. Lots of hollow waves.
