Re: Where did you surf today ?

Was so shit down the coast. Onshore dribble and no banks. Went out and got 3 closeouts just to get wet. Water temp has dropped too since yesterday. Bout 19 at the moment.

Re: The Tulla Tub

The whole wave looks short, at least the right does. That vid shows take off, then not quite enough space for an intermediate dude to crack one off the top before the tube section so instead they do a set up turn for the little tube which is super short and pinched then that’s it. That vid is a far ...

Definitely not this one. My regular board is a 37 litre Fred Rubble.The rails on this are finer.
How big is the Fred thud?
Pretty radical transition to a pulled in twin fin.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

It pumped yesterday after the storm went past, it turned offshore and blue skies but I’d already left. Pumped again this morning too, clean 4ft peaks. Been receiving rub-it-in texts today.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Today was outrageous. Headies at dawn on the high, 2-3ft and glassy, a cool mix of surfers and bodyboarders getting into it. As I drove home I checked my local and the north end was looking like a little indo reef break left, so I jumped straight out again for an hour. Unreal! Hasn't stopped breaki...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

The swell filled in today, quite north in orientation. Back beach was a little sorry for the increase, light cross shore and only working on the higher tide. General sweep to the south but not too strong. Bit of a struggle to nab a peaky one. Water was glorious though, maybe 22 deg or thereabouts. E...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

The swell muscled up a bit early this afternoon. Bendy was out of control 6ft plus and closing out, a real mess. The only rideable wave was the island which hung in at about 4ft with the odd bigger one.

It was quite small on the low at first light. Seems to have kicked now.
Super inconsistent down coast. Long waits. Not much grunt, it's only 4ft or so on some sets, mostly smaller. Think it's sort of missing us.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Was way bigger and more lined up towards sydney than down the coast today. Was a lay day down here, heavy southerly wind in the morning with a 3ft swell and washing machine conditions which converted to a mixed bag of shit in the afternoon as the wind dropped and swung e/n/e. Just wind swell that wa...

Signal is still up and down here as well. Can take 10 mins or more to post a text on RS. So 3rd world.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Well, here's the rub. There are guards at the entrance to Bendalong road off the highway, GUARDS, checking licences and rate notices so that if you are not a resident, YOU DON'T GET IN. All the holiday rental houses are empty. All the caravan parks are empty. The local shop is closed. There is nobo...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Hope you have been leaving some water out for them, Duck. Water's not so much the issue Beany, although i have been putting water out. It's more about food. Water is a scarce as it was previously, besides the early morning dew on flowers which i think counts for a reasonable portion of a honey eate...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Pretty wild stuff, Duck. So everyone can get out for supplies I guess. You can entertain yourself monitoring Nicks latest surf prediction. Yes, locals can to and fro for supplies. It's still burning in patches on Bendy road and trees are still dropping, or being dropped while they install new power...

Re: The Tulla Tub

Nice one pinny. The second rs member to surf an artificial wave (that I know of). Good review.
Don’t think I’ll ever do it.
