Dont worry Pridmore - its looking good for sunday. Should be a few bomb sets to keep us on our toes. Will be fun to see how the bat handles some solid overhead bowls with the dawn lowtide

To this mornings bat brigade ...

appologies for not being able to catch up / meet you this morning .. I have 24 coming for lunch ...

after I paddled out to that, 'so called' left, I soon realised that you guys probably weren't going to head out there so I moved over to the point ... typical DY point ratio ... 1 booger, 1 SUP, 1 mal, 4 shortboarders, 1 knob dropping in on the booger every wave ... :roll:

albeit brief it was good to meet you barstardos ... and I did see you arrive iggy but I was assuming I'd be seeing you in the water before I discovered left left was a straight ... :oops:
I found out later that you had moved location ...

hope you bat men had a good day ...

Iggs and I paddled out at queensie about 7.15 - lots of shutdowns with the low tide. Started get better as the tide put some water on the bank about 9ish but the crowd was building by then. Butts was shooting from the beach - might have got some ok pics but it will make it look better than it was. Cameras dont show 9 out of 10 waves shutting down. Iggy got some ok waves on the bat and looks like it went well. I didnt end up riding the bat this time as I wanted my rounded pin under my feet in those waves. RV and oldman showed up later - I am sure they will have a good morning. Good to meet you all fellas!

make sure you smudge out my winter gut and make the spray look alot thicker and bigger :D
C'mon Iggs, its Photoshop not MAGICSHOP :P :wink: :lol: :lol:
Have you got a gut Iggy? :shock: Didn't notice :lol: :lol: :lol: :P

I had a quick squizz at them last night, and we managed a couple :wink:
That wave I missed, which was a great wave by the way, was my fault :oops:
Although, picking you out from the other 100 bloody penguins wasn't easy :evil: :twisted: :lol: :lol:

Bastardos got a few g'uns as well, we'll see what I can find :wink:

Farque, I can’t help it if there’s a shutter lag on that sh*t camera - get a bloody Nikon next time :twisted: Hope ya had a good wee! :arrow:

Hey if you want to send it to Vic to see how it goes down here we could probably arrange something.

As mentioned in another thread I'll most lilkely be in Sydney between Dec 08 - Dec 13 so I could take it back with me and pass it around to a few of the posters on here...
