Re: Cloudbreak

Nothing major Loof. Pretty much a blocking pattern in the main full throttle Tasman sea swell window but looks to be a steady supply of deeper polar swells coming from the southern ocean circle paths. Trades go a bit wonky and troughy early next week, might be some northerlies.....which could open u...

Weather patterns for the rest of June look like they were drawn by a drunk. More spring than early winter.
So spring-like here.
smells, weather patterns, clouds in the sky; everything.

My little encounter with a juvenile white yesterday. Little too close for comfort.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Hands up who is riding a sub 6ft Lis looking quad fish or twin. F$ck me they are everywhere. I was chatting to a surfing acquaintance who I've know for 10 years, he's always ridden HPSB. He's now loving his Rarb Machado Seaside. He wouldn't have been seen dead on one 18 months ago. Please explain t...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

:evil: there was a strong argument mounted when Michael Lynagh sold it for it to be resumed and made part of the coastal reserve.

now some Cnut - I'm betting on a banker from Holland- will buy it and probably sell it in a year or two to maximise capital gain.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I mean that is my argument against the rich: just the sheer wastefulness and lack of utility.

That house has sat idle there for the last 2 years. No one ever there except the guys doing maintenance on it.\

Having that much money and still being able to waste it like that......

Re: Where did you surf today ?

My reaction was ....not fear....but , whoa!


Whoa, look at this fcuking little white having a go!

Mix of surprise and indignation.

And then, thank god, I'm surfing rock runners and the Point and dry rock is literally 15m away.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Just had a gnarly little encounter with a chunky juvenile white.

High speed approach, circle, then a fins flared rollover right under me. We very much eyeballed each other.

Crystal clear water, sunshine.

Me and one other guy out enjoying some rock runner babyfood.
