Re: post your modern day sickness

So is 38 litres supposed to be a lot??? Too much?? Only asking because I don’t have a single board with litres written on it. And before one of you bastards calls me Mr Creosote I’m 182/90. Try this volume calculator toots, it's not bad for a general approximation. Takes in age, weight, height, exp...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

What sort of seaweed, duck? Got a mate who is a marine botany expert, I'll ask him. Not sure Boo, I'll take a pic. It's fairly typical lightish brown kelp like weed for the most part. Some have those grape shaped float sacs that are not bad projectiles if you squeeze them between your fingers just ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

There is a bit of that, but the majority appears to happen even more in small swell conditions, if anything. Mediated die back may be an occurrence in your freezing part of the world GStQ but it happens here all year round, cold, hot, warm, summer , winter, autumn, whatever. Water temps and seasonal...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Nice and cool for a swim. Where did all the seaweed comes from at Bronte. It's been flat as for weeks. I think seaweed may have Lemming DNA. All at once it collectively decides to just let go, regardless of conditions. It’s just “let’s all release right NOW”. So they do. Then wash up on the beaches...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Was at Pt Leo this morning. Didn't surf 'cause of work - I just wanted to look at 1st Reef to try and figure why it doesn't work anymore. Everything was in place for it to be as I remembered. Good size, right tide, but it just doesn't break like it did Does it rely on some sand on the reef to make ...

One warm day and one powder day so far.
About 40cm last night and another 10cm or so throughout the day. Was waist deep on some runs, and thigh deep in the trees.
Been taking it pretty easy as I've still got another 10 days.
how many hours a day do you ski when it's on boo?

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Right royally skunked this morning with a late afternoon reprieve. Early this morning the south swell hit, the swell from that low that was just off the ice shelf a few days ago. After checking the surf I checked in with a surf bud and he was about to walk his high octane Kelpy cross Collie dog - fc...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Glad something has finally kicked in. Be worth checking early tomorrow too with the giant tides. Be mid tide rising in the morning. What was aj’s take on it Wyre? I saw him kick out on a feeble left the other day like a mofo. Looked like he had plenty of pent up surf energy to release. Like a punk g...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

The back road between Port and Crescent through the 70s 80s and 90s was one of the shittest dirt roads around. Deep rut corrugations that fcuked suspension. Brain rattling stuff. I think it aided in keeping the crowds down. Once the road was graded more regularly and became easier to traverse things...

Tough life you lead Cranked.

This morning was just lovely. 3ft glassy A frames up and down the beach. Warm water and plenty of waves for everyone.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

The shit water colour is not stopping the dolphins going at it though. It’s rape and pillage around here at the moment. I’m sure i paddled past a patch of dolphin jizz yesterday.

Short shit closeouts, except for one that ran. Small mercies in an otherwise piss weak of waves.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Well putrid is a little strong Jimmy but I don’t swim in it unless it’s flowing well on the incoming tide, near the entrance. Not sure if the guy was in the lake or ocean. They opened the lake last week but it’s not working. Didn’t dig enough sand out. Its already stopped flowing and is closing up. ...
