Re: Where did you surf today ?

Yeah well literally fifteen years ago I was only riding thrusters 100% of the time. But hey, congrats all the same. However, the irony of your chest beating statement is there are English migrant adult learners out there who have an understanding of how prevailing conditions interact with the surrou...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Yeah I learnt that quick. Aside from bonzers I’ve never done much with 2+1 set up. 2+1 cons - reduced take off speed and overall speed - more limited in setting your line - stiffer 2+1 pros - more bite on bottom turns, mid face, and under the lip - more acceleration rail to rail - more projection an...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Maroubra. 2-3 foot. Washy mix of dying south swell and sorta building north east swell. Semi clean and still a few ok peaks. Gonna swap the board back to running a straight single fin as it’s looser and faster and just run a 2+1 on days where it’s big and backless and want the extra bite and drive

IGGY ALERT

Coastal Watch is calling it (Maroubra cam) 5'-7' today. I thought that 7' didn't exist? Is this some kind of Being John Malkovich thing?

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Just don’t surf the day after barbell squats. As your quads are caned and your take off won’t be as nimble, as I soon discovered today.

However. Give it three or so days after when you’ve recovered and the reverse happens. more explosive power from quads and backside if your diet resembles mine.

Some days it isn't just the size.
Maybe it's just 'coz I'm getting older but sometimes everything about my surfing from positioning to paddling, to pop ups, is just unco.

Today was one of those days.

I don't do crowds well, either.
Covert your garage to a full gymnasium. That will help

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Sandon is a fairly ledgy wave with a quick take off. I once took a gun out there and soon wished I was on a much smaller board, as the run up time needed for the gun simply wasn’t there. Yep exactly. I hated my board and had no confidence in it, although it was great for scratching over the sets. I...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

And just got in from surfing a breakwall outer bar that was doing its best rendition of a QLD point break. Solid five foot. Absolute long bitch of a paddle out and current running all over. But dreamy walls reeling off down the line.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

8 footers about but with the wind into it. Opted for a semi protected 5 foot peaky reef with an angourie style inside bowl. Only one other bloke out.

Time for second breakfast. Then another go out somewhere else

Re: Where did you surf today ?

3.45 am rise tomorrow morning. Packing a 6”10 step up 2+1 set up. And an 8 foot pintail gun. #froth

Think I’ll give 12 foot semi close out reef bombies a miss though. Should be plenty of 6-8 foot good to perfect surf about many places down south.
