Re: Where did you surf today ?

That's not good enough, Duck. The work from home crew will expect you to have paddled out regardless.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I had a tick on my balls once that gave me an anaphylactic reaction. Are there ticks in Wales? Yes, but I’m guessing the Australian version is a comically malformed brute with a discernible exoskeleton and limpid sightless eyes that sniffs out the gonads of its prey with a quivering whisker’d snout...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Nothing worse than the average Joe on a short board who's basic skill set is bottom turn, off the top, bottom turn......and when the waves get bigger and better all he's got is doing more of the same as fast as he can.....until the wave passes him by.

Actually scoring a park at Tama is a bit like that.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

See a lot of this, slaves to fashion. Despite the huge amount of choice, so many people riding boards that they just aren't good enough or fit enough to ride. Just from my own observation I think in the past coupla days it's not boards but waves. Lots of people just don't know what to do with highe...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

So it’s not worth padding out in excellent conditions, because they are an illusion! Heavy man. Um, yeah.....sure :roll: Having been out there twice on the weekend I had a pretty good idea of my chances of scoring a wave in 15 minutes before it got dark with about 100 guys in the water. Excellent c...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Watched Tama through to Bronte this arvo.....looked way better than it objectively was. Does that even mean anything? Not to you, obviously. To someone else it may very well mean that the excellent conditions created the illusion that it was worth paddling out. Sure didn't stop a huge band of punte...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Watched Tama through to Bronte this arvo.....looked way better than it objectively was. Some great lines though. I'd had a look at Bondi and was wondering about the rippy areas along the south end. Reason wS revealed around the corner which was about three times as big. Not worth a paddle out given ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Actually going to hit Newcastle for a night so might chuck the board in. This is in two weeks though. I'd forgotten how far from the coast the venue is. Thought we might be able to duck up to Forster.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Uh oh. I have to attend a wife's relatives function in the Upper Hunter Valley round about then. This could be a recreation of another whole east coast event where I got stuck in The Blue Mountains. They had a picture of Sonny Aberton at Clovely Bommie on the cover of Surfing Life. You can thank me ...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Oh, I don't know.......yeah, probably would. I like Lennox with a bit of size though.......except for coming in. Got a great barrel at Tuncurry at Easter though.

3-4ft is the new 5-6ft.
Maybe they were just using real wave sizes :-D-:
