I’ve seen quite a few blokes kiteboarding on normal surfboards at Longy. Must be a thing. I guess they don’t do jumps?

A lot of the guys do it without straps. Especially for good quality, point break waves.
You tack out, then pick your set and surf down the line. Carves and surf style turns but can get around sections much easier.

Royal National Park beach break. Peaky swell. A bit wonky and shifty but with plenty of waves coming through and still reasonably punchy.

Sets were a good foot or two overhead. Rights were shorter, mostly a chance for a quick cover up if you were in position. The lefts had a decent wall and bowl with a good section or two to hit up.

Surfed the trusty 80’s belly channel 6’3 thruster which has proven to be a great board for me in overhead beachbreaks. Gets in early, has plenty of speed and drive through turns and holds steady always.

Only four other surfers out over the entire beach. Had a peak to myself the whole time.

Went out for a flounder around....and to try the steamer I nabbed at Vinnies before I went OS. Flounder I did. Caught a couple of nothing waves then snared a good one that stood up out the back and ran into the inside section. Inside is pretty good at the moment. Stoked.

Surf’s been getting better and better for days, a couple of really nice moments yesterday, and today it’s 4’ and crispy cream.

National Park. Consistent chest high left peak with the occasional bigger set. Still fairly punchy for its size. Had it to myself for a while. Only three others out beforehand.

Car locks are broken so only took one board (the mal) expecting it to be small. Was pretty small but breaking square.
Getting barrelled on a 9'8 with no leggy actually gets the adrenaline going, even if it's only 2.5ft.

I took my daughter and her pal for a dawny at the Pass.

It was micro, micro peelers, but fun.

She got run over by a Japanese learner on a mal and a solid gash in her board.

i remember, my third surf on a brand new custom CI last winter. 2 foot crisp snapper running down into greeny. and a japanese chick with her wetsuit on backwards mowed me down (over the falls after) and all three of her fins punctured my deck.

when we came up, she smiled at me and said thank you.

I think this guy said thank you too.

tbh if he was a pommy or Swiss I would have made a bigger deal about it.
