Desperately paddled out on the foamy. Nice day. Goofed around catching a couple then took off on a peak that dredged right out on the super shallow bank as I was about to plow into some swimmers. Bailed and snapped the leggie. It's was old anyway. All up a bit of fun.

Curl curl with 2 nephews
nice family bonding
Rode an 8ft DIY which was perfect for the weakish peaks
Caught a heap a little sliders
Highlight was seeing a young dad push his 5 year old son ( complete with steamer booties and 4ft board) into the shorebreak

Look, OK, cards on the table. I fcuked my father up the arse. It was in the car immediately following my mother's funeral and on the way to the wake.

Had a fun surf at DY today. Nice little left running bank into the shore.

Inside the pool or further up the beach?

Went for a surf at the bra today. Even though it was small, two things were evident. Less crowded and better waves. I would love to move, but Bondi

Conditions are excellent, the crowds are departing rapidly and I can't surf. Its salties fault, his bad luck is contagious.

DY, on the cutest little bank. For 45 mins it was kind of fun.

Bondi has Fcuk all banks at the moment. Really struggling to even think about paddling out. Freezing water doesn't help. Might try and bolt down the coast in a couple of weeks if I can wrangle a couple of days off.

I'm not against weights, far from it. I've been doing some light stuff this year and resolved some niggling/recurring back and shoulder issues.
Ok, you and Shearer both mentioned your back issues cleared up from weight work. My back has been acutely sore over and over again the last 4 years. Im fairly strong generally but I need a major body shake up starting now.

I’m not planning on a home gym but can you guys give me a guide on what you did/do to fix those lower back-disc issues? Squats with various weights? Lifts? What should I be looking at to get started?

Can I have a mandarin after each rep or just one section?

The secret is not overdoing it at the beginning, set the bar low and slowly increase as you get more confident ... so maybe start with one segment of mandarine after each rep.

Sent you a PM, Wyre.
I recommend sorting out the back problem with a decent diagnosis first. I'm doing exercises I know work for me, based on 20 years of advice from physios.
