Surfing World Camp at the Farm 2017

https://surfingworld.com.au/score-sw-camp-tickets-2/

Keen to try a few boards - but good God it'll be a circus. It's normally a circus that weekend. I'm not paying $250 to try boards though. Wonder if you can just wander through???

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Farm had a few this arvo. Long ones out the back that reformed into a few little tube sections on the shore. 2+1 NPJ was good fun as always.

Looking at getting a $250 suit to get me through the winter. Winter's over. :-o Winter may be but the water temp wont rise for a while. ...

So, we can expect a flood of them on gumtree? Hopefully a mblv and/or chunky 3 fin egg, blue tint for both please, and preferably priced for quick sale. Pick up close to my place would seal the deal

I scored a great ride on my middy yesterday. Long left with a pocket that wouldn't quit.

Re: Kelly's wave.

I've tried to find a similar sport to compare with; it is maybe similar to skaters who stay in the same park their whole lives, but even they have the benefit of different objects and runs etc. Maybe the same half-pipe? . playing a golf course vs a driving range. You are still hitting the golf ball...

Re: Kelly's wave.

Steve helped me get my fin money back as did many here. Webber did nothing to help me (to be fair, i never asked him for help) - but i'm siding with Steve.

Re: Midlengths

What a difference a fin makes. I got a new midlength back in April - a gato heroi space pig 7'6 with a narrowed down tail. It has super thin rails and a big rolled v underneath. First few surfs, was not feeling it. Felt like it was dragging an anchor and board just didn't turn. Shelved it most of wi...

It's currently about 2ft or so in the illawarra... Haha drove home via the beaches as usual and didn't see much. This arvo is supposed to pick up though I think, going by the forecast.
