To me, finding a board shape you really like for $15 is a good value. Conversely, it's a cheap and quick way to weed out shit that you might have been tempted to buy.

This wave pool business just might have legs. I say we have the next Realsurf barbecue in Snowdonia.

Booked a session on the Intermediate Left tomorrow. Right was all booked out but I'm not fussed, quite enjoy surfing backhand

Taking my old 7' Miller V-Skate thruster, it'll catch almost anything so I should hopefully get a few.

Murphys farken Law.

Got an email this morning at 05:21 that the Tub is closed due to the massive dust storm that has blown across Victoria from South Australia last night.

Understandable though, my pool (fcuk I hate pools) is now a delightful milk chocolate brown and there is reddish brown pools of slurry all over the place, that place will be a mess :x

I've rebooked the Hatchlings and I for Sunday arvo (they're doing the beginner lesson) so will report back

Yep, must have been a lot of dust (and rain) rode to work this morning, every puddle was orange.

I think their filtration system must be pretty good. A lot of people had been asking about it, so at my last session, I urinated and cleared my nostrils before exiting the pool. I did not observe any ill effects in the participants in the subsequent session.

Apart from that Chinese tourist who surfed right after you, then flew to visit relatives in Wuhan, thereby infecting the whole province. :mrgreen:

By going in to town for a Melbourne coffee....

...that tastes the same as a Sydney coffee.

unless they've changed the bar, grind and water pressure settings.

Yes, that’s true, the main point is you can fairly easily get equally good coffee in Sydney as Melbourne if you want it.

Might have been a bit harder to find 15-20 years ago.
