Yep, forecast seems fairly close to how cyclone Wati tracked. That was exceptional for this part of the world so hoping for similar again.

Na, not out the front but nearby. Only works in particular circumstances.

Good footage of Mason Ho riding a Tommy Peterson Fireball on YouTube. No I'm not posting a link.

Been watching a bit of the Boardriders Comp this weekend. Highly enjoyable. All very good surfers, as expected. Then the CT surfers like Conner O’Leary turn up, so next level, as expected. The speed is noticeable. Far out the pros are amazing.

Lots of Channel Island boards I notice. The Fever seems to be popular

When someone drops in on you, when they stare at you as they paddle in to the wave makes it feel so much more personal.

It's like they are using lube instead of going in dry.

This is a mean hack:

So relaxed too. His fcuking arms, especially his forward arm, doesn’t flail about. He doesn’t seem to need it to counter balance or generate momentum, especially through bottom turns. His body is always so centred over the board, no awkwardness. Unique style. Can’t believe that dead arm thing he has going. Everyone says it’s a skate thing but a lot of surfers skate and don’t have that style in the water.

Floundered around out at Soldiers Beach Reef. Fcuk I'm surfing bad at the moment. That's what happens when you don't keep paddling out in the shite to stay surffit.

I reckon it also takes a bit of time to get used to the increased power and speed for us old folk.
