The basic issue is that swimmers and learners don't actually understand that surfers ride diagonally across the wave. It makes you wonder about what they think is happening on TV when they show surf footage.

Almost 2 hours out at the farm. Clean shoulder to head rollers with the eldest and managed to get Mrs beerfan to paddle out the back on her minimal I got her months ago. Pretty fun surf, got 4 or 5 nice cruisy waves. Ribs are toast. Keen as again :)

Has anyone here surfed the rare left that breaks inside the Southport seaway? Remember seeing a clip of it on brownies coastwatch early 90’s at double overhead. Big yawning barrels.
Yeah, heaps.
Doesn't break anymore.

Was insane in the TC Roger swell '93.

Me and a mate went down to Sydney to visit a hydro grower we knew at Dee Why and when we saw the cyclone coming we hightailed it back to QLD in his ute.
One of us in the back under the tarp.

6-8ft seaway lefts.
I had a beautiful 7'0" Neal Purchase Snr semi gun to ride.

2ft fun fullish Mollymook. Can be such a fun wave on the right board.

First go at the Long Reef Bombie today, with mate and guide Joel Menz. After getting smashed on the paddle out, finally made it to the backline, in what can only be described as challenging conditions. 6ft+ straight south swell, big lumps in the faces and a very shifty peak that likes to ambush you.

Managed to get one ok one before being caught inside and having my brand new 8’8 surf board snapped in two. Massive bummer.

Outside of that it was really good fun being out there in the maelstrom soaking up the primal feel of it.

Loofy has longer, shinier hair. Nearly a mullet.

South end maroubra. Only waist to chest high but some fun peaks. Wackable left bowl running back towards the reef, and a fast walling right. Surfed the twinny with the deep single concave. Easily the fastest small wave board I’ve ever surfed.
