10 channel ?
Like I said I'm on the two week 10 channel diet
Every surf till the end of May.
What’s the turning like ? Scram jet down the line mode with 45 degree climb-drop or can you surf top-to-bottom on it ?

I can turn the 6'5" up and down in hollower-base surf. The 6'1" I can surf up and down whenever, it's a bit wider thus has a lot more outline curve. Really you can do whatever you want on any board if you are willing to figure it out. That's kinda the mission here. I've been too reserved in my use of the 10 channels, thinking the surf has to be off the charts before I bother, and it's restricted my learning pattern on 'em. So I thought OK it's gonna be clean and occasionally solid over the next two weeks, take the time.

Tragically it has already driven me to want more 10 channels. Will this fcuken sport never let me go.

Clean as a whistle 2 ft lines , a 3 ft set every 15 - 20 minutes. Still not quite enough push for a short board.
down Shearers way would have been excellent

Water was alive with good size dart. 100's of em
it was slow but ultra perfect, almost surreal.

I didn't surf. I watched it.

You are both absorbing salt and urinating.

TOTY 2018 would've been funnier! Imagine nick having to explain to some of the legends he'd surf with the meaning of it !

We read the papers everyday
We like who we like, we hate who we hate
But we're also easily swayed

Parko would have said "Fcuk can I have a go?" then looked at the deck and said "Who the fcuk is saltman? Nah, it's OK" and run away

I am confused
Wilko is shitting haemorrhoids and feathers?
Parko denies knowing me?

To be honest That was one of Phil Myers in to be laminated a bit over 12 months ago No idea if it was for NC or not
But I may pop in over the next few weeks - I like Beerfans suggestion

Pretty good this morn, bit bigger and more consistent than yesterday morn.
But so bloody crowded from first light on.
Nowhere else in the region worthwhile from what I hear.
