Re: Where did you surf today ?

Swell's kicked up over the last few of hours down south. Easy double overhead now at a few spots and the beaches are maxed out. Blue sky and westerly breeze is making it look lovely.

Re: post your modern day sickness

I find it almost impossible to tell how good a board is from a photo. The distortion is always so deceiving. Like Channels board looks great in the first shot of the deck but looks weirdly elongated and stretched out in the underside shot that shows the channels. Don't think i could ever buy a board...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Went for the late. A mixed bag but not bad if you snared one. Yup. I waited until the crowd dispersed. Can't believe how crowded the south end got. Fcuk there's no banks around here. It's dire. As the swell grew yesterday and the easterly wind lay down, there would have been some waves, but there w...

Re: Sumba

Kuta reef is world class though. Last time I surfed it was about 8 years ago. I counted 70 surfers in the water as we motored by, so I said drop me at middles, pick me up in 2 hours, as there was only about 10 people there. The wind was really getting into middles though, so I paddled back down to ...

Re: Nth NSW sharks. Can they p!ss off already?

Well the study doesn’t say that. It says that the number of great whites caught in the Queensland shark control program has fallen by 92%, from .7 sharks per net per year to .05 sharks per net per year. I haven't read the study but i don't get it. How do they reach that figure from that info? I get...

Super fun with pulses of 3-4' swell from the east and a bunch of little ones in between, I have a feeling the next two days are gonna be Splendid.
It's certainly not getting down the coast. Barely 2ft around here.

No answer MS, it's like a void. You throw out the bait but they high tail it out of fear and your beautiful slimy mackerel bait is just left drifting on the ebb tide.

It was a bit wonk with the little northerly wind swell cutting across the main sth swell but the sth swell was up a notch and pushing head high and well over on the sets. Banks were kind of shit thoug...
