Actually seen the odd nugget being ridden over at the Bra lately. Still waiting to see someone really put it together. Might have to wait till I see Hatchie in action.
There was a chunky middle aged dude out when it was fairly big a couple of weeks ago. He was man handling it on a couple of reasonably solid peaks but he tended to make it look like hard work. Just trying to push it through a bunch of moves without the flow and the effortless grace that the Nugget is renowned for.

Yeah right

that MC is fucking fantastic, so slick, clean in turns, feels a bit more like the deep concave than other reverse vees. super sensitive off the wing, very sure of itself. I picked all that up in about an hour of shitty 2' rip bowl lefts and rights this arvo, when you get that much information off a board in those conditions you know it's really a fucking good board.

Someone snapped a shot of Hatchy recently somewhere down the south coast:

I was having a pleasant surf this morning, five of us on a point break, I'd just paddled further up the point and a bit further out, when I saw the back and dorsal fin of a large shark breaching about 30m from me. It was about 6' of its back and 2' of dorsal fin.

I looked around and yelled out to the other guys "Did you see that?"

They didn't. A wave came and I took it and then paddled back out and told the guys what I'd seen. I and two others paddled in.

I wasn't going to report it, then thought what if someone was attacked! So I told the people I passed as I went back to my car and reported the sighting to Maritime Services.
