i do like the feeling of getting a good one from just off the rock and seeing the wall line up through the middle section and watching all the tea-baggers gape in wonderment

and the sheer terror in their eyes as you race down the line and they have no idea how they're going to not get run over. that's worth all the arse ache alone. haha

Took the mal out for a rare glide on the dribble. Still a wonderful experience.

The weakest half foot waves ever. Crap but glassy and empty and needed to get wet.

Surfed my little 5'4" JD and used it like a bodyboard on a few of them. Fun as but quite risky if you get too shallow. It's harder than a bodyboard and the fins are a hazard. Much better to gut slide on than the kids bodyboards lol

Good to get in the water anyway.

Left board at home, bodysurfed instead for the first time in years.

Body surfing on the Goldy is the shit.
Not only are the shore breaks tailor made for it, the water is warm and you can mow down any number of goggle eyed international tourists with sand up their arses.

North Steyne up towards Queensie early. Surf tiny but malable but the water was fantastic. Shame I had to come to work.

DY, water nice, 1ft with the occasional 1.5 ft runner. Couple guys on Geto Heiro (?) long boards getting some fun ones. Think it's time.

To get a longboard? love the trim and glide of a longboard. Surfed one for a long stretch, loved it, til I got a sweet potato style board from JD. I'll definately get another longboard though. Being short and not really big, a low 8'er would be sweet.

Yeh, I was on a fish and enjoying it, but you forget how weak the surf gets in Sydney town. It just looked fun, but they could ride them, moving up and down the boards, nice faded turns on really small waves, navigating those big boys around foam into sections with ease. It would be fun learning that craft.

Yep. I have no interest in nose riding ( nor the skill or waves ), just love the feeling of a big board gliding along.

They're fun in decent waves as well.
