Re: Where did you surf today ?

Had the funnest surf this morning. Good banks. Snared an absolute screamer as soon as I paddled out. A fair amount of waves considering how crowded it was. Inside section sucked out and just kept going on the good ones.

btw I've seen Scarborough when there's been a major bombing close range groundswell in the outer waters and it was 6' and closing out directly onto a sandbar about 40m offshore, with the biggest backwash in Human History. Incredible fun! but not to surf.
Sounds like Bondi.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Uh, oh. All this swell looks like it could chew up my current favourite bank. I've only had about three surfs at Bondi this year, I think. That has to be a record.

Re: Margaret River Pro 2018

Well, it's a jolly old junket for those guys. Having a bunch of increasingly young and media schooled kids with varying levels of literacy in English having to front up for pre and post heat interviews puts them in an increasingly paternalistic position.

Re: Margaret River Pro 2018

Definitely a spectator. Some of the canings they've been getting have been pretty rough. No one has pulled off an air all day. Rarely pulled off a re entry successfully.
