Re: Where did you surf today ?

Wanda beach. Chest to shoulder high rights walling up all the way to the beach. Strong cross-shore wind was a pain in the arse, but also helped hold the face up. Fun as it bowled up on the inside bank. Surfed the mini mal, which was great and made light work of it. Cutbacks into the bowl then run th...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Some ok waves out the dunny bowl just now. Head high sets. Watched some young bloke from the sub continent get dragged out in the rip alongside the rocks, then rescued by a couple of surfers. Poor cat was petrified. Happens there all the time. They need to erect permanent warning signs in a dozen la...

What sort of deck traction are you using on them?

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Mid-south maroubra. South swell was dominant over the east. Shifty and hard to pick off but some screamers in the mix. Steep jacking drops and slamming hard on the inside bank. Lots of
waves sectioning out but a few bowling runners.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Maroubra. Softer but better waves up the north end. More turns, more face, but shifting. Punchier and faster down the south end and less crowded. Probably bagged about 20 waves.

pleasant.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

If you still can’t figure out where to surf and when after all these years then you’re a waste of space and you should simply give up and dedicate all your leisure time to destroying yourself on cheap Aldi liquor.

Today’s there’s some fun bowls about. Just about to head out now.

Re: Mentawai quiver.

Make sure you surf hideaways if not already. That wave is bonkers.

Re: Mentawai quiver.

I took three Jim banks boards when I went. All rounded pins. A 6’5, 6’9, and 7’0. Surf was 4-8 foot the whole time. Surfed the 6’5 for most of it. The rail length of the 6’9 felt too neither here nor there. And surfed the 7’0 at 8 foot thunders and 5-6 ft scarecrows. The 7’0 went well at big thunder...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

South end maroubra. Only waist to chest high but some fun peaks. Wackable left bowl running back towards the reef, and a fast walling right. Surfed the twinny with the deep single concave. Easily the fastest small wave board I’ve ever surfed.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Has anyone here surfed the rare left that breaks inside the Southport seaway? Remember seeing a clip of it on brownies coastwatch early 90’s at double overhead. Big yawning barrels.

North curl curl. Waist high shore breaks on a building wind swell.
