Nice mate, great to see josh still shaping, albeit infrequently. You just know it’s going to be fast, it’s red!
He's definitely shaping infrequently. It took about two months to get this one out of him. Shaping, glassing, colour work is all top notch though.

Re: post your modern day sickness

Wasn't sure whether I should post these pics due to the bitterness and envy they would cause. Josh Dowling. PU/PE 5'7" x 18 3/4" x 2.4" 29 litres asymmetrical. (He does the odd PU/PE for people if they want something interesting made) Josh did a raised deck in the tail - like an arch bar. So the tai...

Re: Bells Beach

And what’s up with you steve? Suspended all your critical faculties now you’re writing for the kindergarten? Imagine a non surfer trying to make some sense of this. They’d switch off in bemused disgust after 2 minutes The hype cuts through though - a bunch of people at work have been telling me abo...

Re: Bells Beach

JJF just nailed a closeout hack on a 10 footer in front of the Winki button - that's f*cking superhero surfing.

Re: Bells Beach

Nah out of 10 for surf forecast. Bells gets 8 stars tomorrow around 7am. What are the locals saying? Who fcuking cares. I didn't see too many of 'em out at Winki just then and it was smoking. Making Bells look silly. I can tell you this, at 9.30am the Cape Sorell buoy off Western Tasmania spiked fr...

50 year storm and their websites not fccckn working. Anyone would think they had hired shearer to run the fccckn thing. Watch it via swellnet like everyone else. You can see it live on the wsl site.

Re: Bells Beach

Actually - There was only a handful out at Centreside this afternoon. Everywhere else was packed. You had to drive to Southside from Jarrosite road and hike down the hill. Got a couple of nice ones. Hiking back up the hill wasn't so much fun though.

Re: Bells Beach

Bells / Winki is the most unsharky place I've ever surfed. True two people have been nipped on the ankles there but nothing serious.

Surfers right to be total dickheads under threat

First fines for Jetskis at Kirra, now some lawyers want to sue longboarders who don't use legropes.
