It's only a foot step or two away. Getting back is the hard bit.
Ain't it the truth. So many hypsters can't get that bit right at all.
Tail lifts great for catching waves as well as turning.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Your standard McTavish mal has a lot of tail lift and turns well off the tail. However....Steves right....get up there and go for the nose.

Those big Fcuk off hacking commas moving cubic metres of text that crabmeat does are a billion times better than everything, punctuation wise, most pros do.

Re: Front shoulder pain.

Yeah, my arm went through all sorts of weird shit for about a year. Sitting in a chair could be painful. Elbow would heat up and throb, pins and needles in the fingers, aching shoulder blade. But no real reason for one happening or the other at any time. Still can't wear a wrist watch on that arm.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I sat on the nth hill at 'bra watching piddly crumblers with my (former charger) client, MP like at Kirra's hill, just watching. sucked out, eh? Sucked in on your part I guess, Skip. I'm sure Hatchie can scold you for looking at The Bra in those conditions. Yes, Bondi has got some banks again final...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Had the funnest surf this morning. Good banks. Snared an absolute screamer as soon as I paddled out. A fair amount of waves considering how crowded it was. Inside section sucked out and just kept going on the good ones.

Good spray, Steve.
I'm sure the coverage has helped tourism.

btw I've seen Scarborough when there's been a major bombing close range groundswell in the outer waters and it was 6' and closing out directly onto a sandbar about 40m offshore, with the biggest backwash in Human History. Incredible fun! but not to surf.
Sounds like Bondi.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Uh, oh. All this swell looks like it could chew up my current favourite bank. I've only had about three surfs at Bondi this year, I think. That has to be a record.

Re: Margaret River Pro 2018

Well, it's a jolly old junket for those guys. Having a bunch of increasingly young and media schooled kids with varying levels of literacy in English having to front up for pre and post heat interviews puts them in an increasingly paternalistic position.
