how long since you've had a go out Beany?
I had a surf at Wanda last Wednesday. Before that my last surf was up at The Entrance about a month ago, Nth Shelleys and Soldiers Point.
Nothing around today. Since I haven't been able to get in a bit of paddling I really need some user friendly surf to get back in the vibe, man. Looking at the crowds battling for close outs it's been nicer looking at the empty beaches really.

don't leave it too long Beans, at your age the skills and fitness will erode very quickly.

I agree completely, Steve. Motivation is the other factor eroding quickly. It's funny riding the push bike has got me more excited than looking at crowded close outs lately. Plus I finish riding feeling good rather than with an aching shoulder.

Tell me about it. The surf here has been bad even my Perth standards. I've caught about 3 crappy waves the last month.

Well at least you aren't missing anything in Bali mate, beaches been closed for a while according to Slim on Baliwaves, although you could probably find a few quiet out-of-the-way places.

The Balinese have always considered the ocean as evil, I'm pretty sure they are going to interpret playing in it as provoking their gods. You can't ever get between the Balinese and their religion.

And the Laskar gangs, they love a bit of violence, especially when it's sanctioned by their gods.

Woo Hoo, went for a dribble little surf at The Bra and managed to snare five waves off the grommets, stoked.

Had a jolly time with my boy in shapely knee to waist high peelers. As usual, had trouble getting him to come in.

My last 16 days since I got out of self isolation will probably be typical: I rode up in the hills for 1 or two hours for 13 days and surfed for 3 days.

The riding was great, but I caught about 6 crappy waves in 3 sessions of about 1.5 hrs each.

I always surf if its "on" as I can ride anytime.

I don't have a mal. I would get lots of waves if I bought a 10' x 24' x 3.5' (needed to compete with the standups). But fcuk that, there's a few shortboard reefs with only a few locals most of the time.

I'll ride the skate parks when they open.

So my surfing is extremely curtailed, my days of 2 x 2hr daily surfs in great conditions are gone. Riding keeps me sane, not surfing.

Let us kneel and pray for a covid19 vaccine - 1-2 years?

Maybe some trips North and South when the WA regions are opened. Got a riding buddy who works for Main Roads as an engineer. 5 years in Albany and 5 in Carnarvon, reckons he knows some out-of-the-way breaks.
