His curtains have faded due to the bloody daylight saving down in nsw and he hasn't been getting his usual 10hrs of sleep.
So to enable a decent nights sleep he has made a makeshift bed at the bottom of an old corrugated water tank and pinched an elders realo sign to cover the opening so that no damn sunlight pokes it's way into his blackened slumber zone.
He will be hybernating till April

Hey BF, are you referring to the no SC surf report on SN this morning? Shearer doesn't do the SC Surf Report mate. He does the SC Surf Forecast but not the daily report (he does the daily Ballina Surf Report).

Hey Ledge, you gonna be up in PNG around Sunday 21st November? Looks like you should have your first real N'ly groundswell of the season arrive around then. Probably something in the 3-4ft range, super inconsistent, but probably something with way more power than what you've been recently surfing??

The plot thickens. So he lives down south, does the Ballina surf report, but also does the Sunny Coast forecast.

Gotcha. They might wanna check up on where old mate who does the Sunny Coast report is cause he didn't show up for work today.

saw the guy who shaped my board in the water today...he was stoked with how it's going for me

it's really good for me get so much good feedback on this board because it's nothin like i would normally even consider ride :shock:

i just feel really confident on it 8) and when people tell me it's working for me thats just a added boost

( surfings 40 percent physical and a 100 percent mental :D )

ummmm...obviously...i'm surfing....hredytfguih.lnbo :lol:

p.s bombers hey mark, have u found the inshore reef yet :?: about half way down the beach...need a 4wd ....it's a quality wave when not covered in sand but fully wind exposed

some people go thru their entire surfing life riding the wrong shapes, and all the more reason to try lots of different boards, and like you say, its a board you wouldnt have considered riding, ( let alnoe order ), even at the board testing days I have, some guys still wont consider trying certain things, and then thats the mental side of it, they think that certain boards couldnt work for them or whatever, best to try everything....glad you are frothing over a 6'10", it'll help with competing with the mals too I guess.... 8)

My wifes uncle rides boards around the 6'10"-7'0 mark as shortys. He reckons it's all about where the wide point is placed in relation to a measurement from the tail. I tried shaping a few using his method of thinking and it did work well for certain waves. Great paddling power and still turned well but they felt looooooong. Anyway, I moved back to conventional lengths but still have a 7'0 I use every now and again to keep it all in perspective

And it looks like you could have another similar sized follow up swell later that week (around Friday 26th November).

been surfing really fun beachy peaks last few days and lovin it but surfed a breakwall spot today, very very brown water, crosshore winds and not any good rides were had, Shearer came down for a paddle and sort out some new sleds and when we were looking at it, some really good ones came theu but by the time we got out there, the wind had changed and it just got too high tide, so missed it by an hour or so I think....so murky and sharky, it was hard to relax and enjoy the few waves that did come thru, especially after the dolphins scared the sheet outta me a few times.....gusty NE winds outside now and swell seemed to be building, looking forward to seeing what Monday morning has to offer....

after a night at pridmores pub,checked out breakwall spot and it was extra brown,with a wave or two for a couple of keen groms,checked backbeach out then ended up back in town surfing a funky right hander with a bloke that runs a surf school and a grom that pulled a backhand air 360 on a rare left,wish i had have meet Mr Shearer,as i do feel i owe him a bacon & egg roll with tea/coffee after enjoying his yarns.. prob would have coughed up for pridmore as well...hotrods everywhere..will bring windex to do pridmores windows next outing...lazy drive home, school prawns 12.50 a kilo for lunch

Grabbed a little wave and went in style, just like I saw Tom Carroll do it.

Then went in :roll: because I'm a midgey old cunt and was cold in my springy, thought a NE would be warmer than that.

Is anyone up Noosa way today? If so, how's it looking? Getting some conflicting surf reports from glassy early, to bumpy. This queensland wind is starting to annoy.
