Sheeet. Trying to buy sone FSC 2 fins up the Cenny coast. Can only buy from Slimes due to some weird sales territory thingy that FCS insist on. Painful

"Nick," he gasped, "how do you get in from here?"
Well, how do you get in from there? Sounds like a nightmare set up. If you don't paddle hard, do you end up directly in the impact zone?
Yes you pretty much do.

Where guys are taking off today is kind of out on the shoulder of the deep takeoff spot on bigger days. If you watch today you will see bombs breaking further out and across, that's the spot, but that is also where the rip is worst.

You wanna go in, catch a wave. Of course on a big day if you're too deep you can end up in the harbour mouth and have to paddle in to one of the launching ramps or something.

I kind of feel Jacob Willcox just got burned by the Slater cult.

I think you are right. Really enjoyed today's heats. Powerful waves!

Was pretty good today. Avoca that is.

That’s the best name I’ve ever heard.

Is he hacking the f$ck out it?

He is indeed. I think him, Barron Mamiya and Michel Bourez for the win.

the wsl live webcast has nice slow-motion replays going these days. watching carissa yesterday in slow motion was very enjoyable - classic turns and tube rides.

So what happened to Mikey Wright? He was all over the place earlier in the year.

Great. Now I'm imagining BA's majestic snow-capped erection, upon which scores of brave men have perished
