wooo bumpy slabby fun awkward play surf again today, 3-5' and semi clean for a while before the SE showed up

testing two boards, 5'10" and 5'11", same outlines and tails, quite different foils and bottom shapes, fascinating to try to pick apart the effects. I have another one to test, the one I thought of writing about on Beachgrit, nothing like these two. I feel a little sceptical of it for various reasons but I wanna give it a serious opportunity so will have to wait, maybe for approaching ESE swell

Did you activate your posterior chain and glutes?

I had fun. Only 5 guys out, big sweep but took the big wide paddle back out. Seemed to luck in to a set every time. Took 4 and I was done.

Mid-south maroubra. Overhead and fairly punchy on the inside bank. Backwashing pitchy take off with some fun peaks on offer. Surfed the 80’s thruster.

Watched some nervous looking dweeb on a SUP try and edge into a set, then get pelted straight into the trough and get an absolute hiding.

SUP on a packed Sunday morning with over head waves. Douche.

Five surfs in the last six days. Three different spots.
All fun.
But today I lucked into two consecutive "from out the back, all the way to the beach" waves which raised the enjoyment factor to the next level.
After the second, my 70 year old shoulders cried "enough".

Waited patiently 10 min for my first wave, dude on mal after just getting a wave paddles far out to my outside. Drops in on me, bails board and snaps the nose off mine. Obliviously asks me what happened to my board when he saw it.

Did you say 'a nose for a nose' and bloody him up?

I let him know but didn't push it any further. Thought there was nothing to gain.

Must hit Newport again one day. How big does it need to be for the peak to start working?

I’ve only surfed Newport once, about twelve years ago. The peak at 6-8 foot. Was impressed with it. Really steep stretching take off and great face to cutdown/back on.
