Gentle wave that’s never ending. Boring.
But surely there'd be a rippable bowl to take the highline ?
Hatchie prefers waves that are really bowly. In fact the more hyper bowly the better :-D-:

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I love Hatchies concerted effort to put shit on anywhere I surf. Kind of remarkable.....not. Just got back from surfing Boomerang for three days. Looked pretty much like the pictures Hatchie posted of his prefered style of wave. It was a bit sectiony though. Re: Crescent....I can understand why he w...

It was “bigger” in bondi with “more north” in the swell?

Faces south last time I checked
100% Correct. Boomerang on the other hand....doesn't :P

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I occasionally have to reverse a boat trailer up a steep undulating incline with a 90° turn and a kerb at the beginning. With automatic and low range it's a piece of cake. First try every time. A front towball would make it even easier. Legit question...why are front towballs not a thing for tricky...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Little rip bowl up the beaches. Lots of paddling to stay in place, and ate a bit of sand on a few takeoffs, but I had it to myself and the water was beautiful. Same at Longy, except it was not a solo surf. and it was .5 of a ft. I know, I was there. Scored a few on a little bank riding a little fis...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

That’s excellent Iggs. Well done. I ventured down to a well known point break this afternoon. As the tide dropped out there were head high barrels on offer on the inside. Everyone was out the back jockeying for fat waves that died out after 20 metres into a channel. There was about 10 of us on the ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Lacklustre and too crowded. Snared a couple at the start then paddled around in circles for 45 minutes. Should have gone in after the first two. Fog kept the sun at bay for a while. Still hot.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Someone on Hodady posted a running board for that comp I think. It was a pretty stellar cast for the comp.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Good question. Since you asked: There's two fish and one gunny shape that are in the maybe category. My fishcuit I rode pretty exclusively for a year and a half. Had some great waves on it but it was ultimately frustrating wave count wise. Gun will probably get sold unless I move somewhere where I'...

Yep, I scored a few before the wind came up. Great conditions. Big lulls between sets.

Of course there is the possibility that Steve took things to heart because....correct me if I'm wrong.....he was the first actual identity to win TOTY. All the other candidates and winners operated under aliases. Plus he's in the industry.

Seem to be a few regulars that have done the Harold Holt. Steve, Crabmeat, AJ, Karlos, Davros. Maybe more. It’s a slow death and may be terminal this time.
Also Xmas Holiday Time.
Karlos and Davros?
Whoa, that's a long time and many possible name changes ago.
