Yes, you could then enjoy 10 years in Bali for free.

100mls in clear ziplock bag if carry-on is correct.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Not for her it didn't. But it doesn't really bother me. If you've got it flaunt it especially as it doesn't look like Steph will catch up now. What does bother me about her is her and Kurt's approved building application from Warringah Council and the long-term ramifications on Pittwater residents ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Did anyone notice the drop in water temperature over the last few days? surfed the farm this arvo latish and the water was cold! I saw a guy come in wearing a steamer and i was doing the eye roll thing till my feet touched the water. A north easterly swell drags the water up from the ocean floor. H...

Re: Can I bodyboard with one fin only

I will assume that the original post is not a smnmntll bait and will answer as follows: When I was at school me and a mate, both of us being short of money, shared a set of flippers, one each, for bodysurfing. They worked fine. It's even easier with bodyboarding. BTW, if you are short of funds, an o...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I'm 65, getting to my feet is the big problem, after that its all ok. I did surprise myself on a few good waves at the racetrack the other day, actually jumped to my feet in one movement and no foot adjustment required... nearly fell off in surprise. I put it down to that surf fitness routine I've ...

Re: Surf beach suggestions for beginner - Sydney

He is having go at other forum members. Most of us live north of Sydney and I have never surfed at Cronulla, hence my non-recommendation which probably also is the case with the other northerners. However anyone else on this website who lives at or surfs at Cronulla should hang their heads in shame....

Re: Surf beach suggestions for beginner - Sydney

The north end of Bondi is generally the calmest with the flattest bottom. The south end can get messy (and had the shark attack). Although this website is fantastic, I suggest that you check out the surf cams on www.coastalwatch.com before you leave so as to know in advance whether it's worth your w...

Re: Surf beach suggestions for beginner - Sydney

Good suggestions from ctd. Best to learn at low tide if she's just catching broken waves.

Don't forget that protected corners frequently have rips eg. South Palmy, DY kiddies corner etc.

Many people are too lazy to walk. I'd expect Granite and Alexandra may have had smaller crowds.

I haven't been there since the 1980s but enjoyed it then. Was it crowded?

NBs today. So, so. Low tide closeouts.
