Sups are like jet skis. Better when they're somewhere else.
Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air.

SUPpers are people, too. We need a plebiscite.

Watched one out at port, weekend, people swimming in the flags. Wobbles right into the flags, turns and goes and falls flat as soon as he catches the wave, sending his barge flying. Stunned! He copped it big time from the lifeguards.

Stupid thing is, there's at least a km of beach he could've had to himself, but was in the middle of the flags.

It attracts dunderheads. I've got a mate who doesn't surf but was immediately drawn to the idea. He would be the definitive dangerous kook if he ever managed to get on one. Entitled and a bit of a Mr Magoo on the road.

2-3 foot walled up fatties. Nothing special but still well worth a paddle. Surfed the 6'4 single.

2 days ago crossoffshore right reef doing a good impersonation of anga. 3-4 ft. no one but me
Next morn 6ft lowtide offshore grinders hissing down the reef. Met a young guy who has been in indo since may. Talked each other into jumping out what passes fora key hole

Howling offshore and thick lips proved challenging we both conceded and took out first one in

Returned on the rising tide with a6-4 quad and had a pleasant time with just 2 locals. Cross offshore but fast and powerful

Bit smaller today pulsing seriously tomorrow afternoon

Got motivated and tried to outwit the road blocks to get down to the beach. Retreated after a couple of attempts and found plenty of parks at Bronte. Actually managed to snare a couple of dubious runners over the reef. Nice to get wet.

Im with you Trev. I would have been all over those waves at Cronulla. Pity I was too lazy to drive down.

Wish the south west winds weren't up this morning. There'd have been a bit more size and definitely more grunt a bit further south. That jibbon head must have quite a shadowing effect on south swells. Most of the size seems to make it into the top half of bate bay, but the sting has well and truly been taken out of it vs. what RNP, newy, south of jervis, etc cop

Yeah I got sucked in by swellnet, which claimed there'd be light NW this am, but it was just more S and chopped up. Not to mention the dead low tide meaning a close out inside and a burger outside behind a gutter

I was on the beach around mid morning and watched those banks for a while. there was a goofy absolutely getting an insane
amount of speed out of what appeared to be a board about 5'0 quite wide fairly rounded nose. made the waves look good and everyone
elses surfing look slow and dull, which was kinda what the conditions were dictating

Think I know the board you're taking about. Older tall bloke, on a grey board? If so, I had a look at the board when he came it. Mini Simmons type shape with channel bottom running about 2/3 the length of it, quad fin set right on the rails. Pig ugly board to be honest, looked like a mal cut in half. but it was sure fkng quick!
