Re: Where did you surf today ?

when's the last time you surfed a thruster out at the point steve? betting a long while. i've gotten to the point that i only like them in beachbreaks, or sectioning and uneven waves. they just feel like noise to me on a walled up point or reef.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Cronulla point again. Less size, punch and consistency than yesterday. Surfed a 6’3 thruster. It was fun, but on points and reefs still prefer the Cadillac feel of a longer rail line to push off and one fin. Just one thank you.

Re: Epoxy boards

I’ve had the old generation tufflite. Mostly hate them - too stiff and reactive. And have had the SLX style epoxy. Feels a bit more like a standard pu board - lighter but feel a bit dead in comparison.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Cronulla point. Head and a half high with the odd bigger one and reasonably solid. Surfed the 6”10 single fin. Early entry, smooth handling and drawn out lines. Got a few runs all the way to the beach by staying deep in the pocket through first reef.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

depends where. there'll be protected spots probs hitting 8ft and others only 4ft or less. if the swell gets a bit of east in it (as predicted later in the day) then it will even size range out a bit more in the upper range. sandon will have waves, but probs crowded and breaking wide as it's very dir...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Wind protected locations should be less than half that size. Still decent but

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Royal national Park. Stacks of long period south groundswell getting in. Loads of grunt and well overhead on the sets. Started off on the beachbreak but it was mostly maxed out. Banks weren’t handling. Then surfed the left reef point. Bit shifty and inconsistent but got some cracking runs from the p...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

A single feels a lot cleaner and covers more ground. But much more unforgiving than a 2+1 if your timing or positioning it even slightly off. 2+1 is more versatile for sure.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Well formed left-right peak with clean micro peelers on offer. Crowds were a circus. Bagged three on my 6’4 single before calling it quits. https://s31.postimg.cc/yh41bhhjf/18_A361_AB-_CB05-4339-_B17_A-4_AE1_BB718764.jpg https://s31.postimg.cc/6trbxe42j/9046_ED72-_EBED-459_C-8182-_A899_F363_F6_A1.jp...

Re: Ebay Bargains thread

Go buy it. Rarely see decent condition mals for anyway near that sort of price. You might not want it now but you might in couple years. It is a genuine gift. Not sure on mactavish prices but that range bare minimum. More like 1600-1800 at a guess. I would but mals aren’t really suited to down here...
