Get some good ones Steve?

fcuking oath Loof. I almost lost my shizzle in a road rage incident in the car park then regained composure and using a strategy of 100% run around into the rip I snagged some gems off a frothing pack.
Nice, I had a cracking surf at Tallows on Aus day a few years back. A few out but spread out and plenty of waves to go around. 3-4 ft, not a drop of water out of place.

We bleed brine you and I Steve, not like the other fakers on here.

Look, OK, cards on the table. I fcuked my father up the arse. It was in the car immediately following my mother's funeral and on the way to the wake.

Dawn session at garie beach. Two foot of swell getting swallowed up by the high tide. Inconsistent but some fun peaks when they came through.

Just got back from a pleasant outing at an un-named back beach.
NE wind backed right off.
Four out.
Beer time.
Pretty sure we are on the same coastline. It was very pleasant middle of the day at said unnamed quality spot. I picked the eye out of the crowd by hitting middle of the day. Was building when I left around 4pm.

I heard Friday in particular was flawless.

Went back to the scene of the crime and left without seeing it. Car park was like the Battle for Stalingrad.

well the Uncrowded Dream died this morning up here at good ol Newport

2-3' NE groundswell, inconsistent, warm, offshore winds, and 60 rubbernecks out. Amazing! Everything from Sth American back packers to 40 year old beginners to 60 year old Pretend Old Salts on shitty $1200 longboards! Tragically the southerly came and blew them all around to Avalon

Sounds like Bondi has moved across the bridge. Howling onshore now. Tried to look at Zthe Bra since we were over there but there's a Seal Carnival on. Did the shopping.

You just know Steve is the type of bloke to ding your car and drive off without owning up.

This morning more punch in the swell but a wobble from the evening nor’easters
Yet dead calm till 8am so there were some cleanish peaks in the mix. And only a handful out

Working in Byron or I would have had a punt. Anyhow went back this arvo and laid down a 3 hour sesh. It was pumping again but a bit less consistent and less water moving around.
Crazy, multinational frothed out mega crowd.

I put 4 fins in the Ghost and I was so excited to ride it and the first wave it just went.....straight....I couldn't fcuking turn it, it was like trying to bend an iron bar. Many embarrassing waves followed. I could take the drop, go straight and do a bottom turn and that was it.
Then I did the best full speed power hack of my life and comboed it straight into a fins out close out hit. Confused.
Then mega kookery. Then an absolute bomb , came off the bottom buried the arm and out the pie in the oven and this chick in a purple bikini on a boogie board just absolutely stuffed me.
I wore the lip on the head got smashed and ended up tangled up underwater with a South American stud.
It was very confronting.

Back to the beach for another lap. More kookery. Came in and took the fuschia four fins out of the board.
I have no idea what happened.

Goes better as a tri fin ay?

Front fins to large in Quad set up?

Total question not a suggestion.

That is the only conclusion I can make.

Unless there is something drastically wrong with the fin set up on my board.
