Re: Where did you surf today ?

I could barely get my mower through some of the thick grass and weeds. thought I'd killed it on several occasia. My old man bought a flymo when I was a kid. Me and my brothers would take turns mowing the lawn. Because I was a lazy cnut and always at the beach on weekends, the grass (fcuken kikuyu a...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Overtime, the carburettor became difficult. Had to manually choke it with a stick to start. Stick had to be the right size though (I think it was about 5mm diameter) and the timing before removing it was critical

My 1st lawnmower was a wide 20” cut and threw grass out the side. Was really good because the house had a big yard of rampaging kikuyu

Re: Where did you surf today ?

😀
I was once a pretty good surfer. Deliberately living on a dole budget diet of rice, weeties and toast combined with keenly contesting club stuff will do that

Then I became responsible, bought a house and lawnmower. The rest is history

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I had a Tomo (v4 I think). 5'8" or 9, pointy nose. One of the best boards I've ever had. Tried it several times as a quad and didn't like it at all, but as a thruster it went unreal forehand and backhand I bought it unseen and unriddenfrom a guy who once frequented RS. Tomo made it for him, but he j...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

For a little while I worked directly for a company extracting gas from offshore formations just west of Bass Strait. The offshore rig and onshore processing plant are relatively new, but require continual maintenance. They're never too far from a potentially disasterous fcukup The scale of potential...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Well, it could be that a change in bathymetry due to sand deposit has affected swell concentration/direction, but if there were sand deposited on the reef itself, it would be shallower and thus still break. Sets were making way to it though and mostly not breaking. Hence, my subsidence theory Moved ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Nah, that's the weird thing. It's always just been a reef. Historically, at the size and tide it was yesterday it would break about 80 m from shore. 50-60 m was then a fun Wally wave made for turns then running into a bowly section over the "suck rock". Only then did sand come into play and occasion...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Was at Pt Leo this morning. Didn't surf 'cause of work - I just wanted to look at 1st Reef to try and figure why it doesn't work anymore. Everything was in place for it to be as I remembered. Good size, right tide, but it just doesn't break like it did Meantime, where Groots probably was looked as i...
