Re: Strahan tassie

Queenstown, it’s classic small town living. Not much going on there at all. Just the way I like it. I don’t really ever need to work again though I’m hoping once the kids reach some sort of independence with their ASD issues I can go back to work. I tried driving school buses a month ago and it caus...

Re: Strahan tassie

Digger, if you are going to shape boards and give us the BBQ photos of the finished product (ie when you put the board on the BBQ to show the rocker etc), you are going to have to do something about that backyard. Guys on here are pretty vicious when it comes to lawn care :-D-: Looks like a good pl...

Re: Strahan tassie

No rental market yet. Most buy as it’s still cheap though with the mine reopening that may change late this year.

Re: Strahan tassie

Economy's pretty rooted down there. Mines have shut down in the area. No jobs. Hence the cheap houses. Would think the rental market would be pretty non-existent Loof. Buy a weekender. Flights to Tassie are cheap. The mine in queenstown is in a soft start up right now. It will be fully operational ...

Re: Strahan tassie

I'm living in Port Campbell now. Buckets of room for the bus in the backyard if you'd like a little detour on the way down King Island is spectacular. Spent a couple of weeks there and would return at moment's notice Now that is bloody tempting Swivic, love Port Campbell. Will mention it to the mis...

Re: Strahan tassie

Good the fcuk on you, digger. One day for sure. Stone's throw from the West and day trip to the NW. Plenty of gems nearby, in and out of the ocean. My mum spent much of her childhood on Robbins Island. I need to get there before I'm dead. Closest I got was a fantastic left just near on the mainland...

Re: Strahan tassie

Cheers Rust and no mate it’s not. It’s 56 Macnamara Street Queenstown for 85000. At the moment on realestate.com.au it says under offer. If anyone ever travels that way on the West Coast after April drop us a line and we can catch a wave. Though I will be without internet till September or October. ...

Re: biggest wave ever U ever surfed?

I’m 6 ft high exactly, so biggest was about double and a half overhead, maybe triple, felt like triple at the bottom, however wave hieght are judged doesn’t bother me. I use the scale to small, fun height, ok gotta concentrate height, am I fit enough he...

Re: Strahan tassie

We bought a house in queenstown. 5 bed, repayments of only 70 a week, really bloody small mortgage. Can’t go wrong when we like small town living. I’m gonna set up a shaping bay, make some bellys with trail harbour in mind. We’re leaving gympie on the 24th next month. Time to check out of the east c...

Re: Belly boards

Just joined the forum, spending my time trying to find stuff on fibreglass rails and rockers. I’m thinking 2” on nose and 1 “ on tail ?

Re: Belly boards

Cheers mate. I’m 6ft in height and around 85kg. I’m now thinking 5 ft and 4’8. Just about got the bay ready to start shaping. Got some ideas around a 5 fin type bonzer and a flat bottom twinzer with small fins

Re: Strahan tassie

I know people that moved to Queenstown last year, they like it. Apparently you can get a house for 35,000. But what sort of house? Strauhn may have waves over summer with the easterlies blowing and zero swell, looks like a shallow beach. Having trial bay as a back up for when you get desperate woul...
