Howling, horrid freezing wind taking the tops off it down here, managed to get a couple of fun ones but it was pretty hard work. My new Needs 4/3 didn't feel too warm, that's for sure.

My Needs L/S spring was perfect but I've realised my old Quik 3/2 chest zip (coldest wetsuit ever made) is not fit for another winter.

4-5 foot Wanda. Lot of shutdowns, as always with a straight south swell, but still some freight train walls allowing a top to bottom sprint before kicking out.

I got a wave this morning, first time in a long, long time.......from out the back to down past the hut.

A very strange feeling: burning thighs.

Glad I've been smashing the goblet squats and kettlebells.

Kettlebells are great. Good for straight legged deadlifts

good for surfing.
hip hinge, posterior chain strength = power surfing.

Great for conditioning too.

You reckon it's marketing?

I've upped my overall training volume using greasing the groove and am feeling heaps better for it.

There's definitely substance, but there's also a lot of marketing. As with everything in the fitness business. I was following Pavel's guidelines when I was at my strongest and I still kind of do. But he sold a million kettlebells (figuratively) on the back of his advice, comrades.

I still like my barbell.

I do have some bells though.

wow, just had a look at wetsuit prices.

600-700 for a rip curl steamer.

Insane, anyone paying that?

Nope. Half that for Hurleys. I'll bet you can still find deals on RC though, if you look hard enough.
