Hahahah my 7 year old looked at coastalwatch on my phone and said "Dad it's 3-10ft, what the hell" laughing his head off.

….this was pushing off the wall not diving in.

...running out of breath underwater hasn’t been an issue. Not too bad for a 62 y/o who surfs irregularly.

What proportion of the surfing population do you reckon should be on HPSBs. I'm saying 20% around here.

Yep, 65-75% here, maybe more. At all ages. Surprising considering the point can get pretty good, thought there would be the odd single etc. The older crew here are pretty good and fit surfers across the board.

Fark. I love the messiah but reckon JJF is a cut above and not just for his bigger wave/barrel skills.

I had the privilege of sharing a reef break surf with Harry Bryant ... Ho Lee Fuk can that boy surf, he's got a little bit of the Mason Ho's about him and a tube game thats second to none. But yeah JJF is another level.

Swell's nearly flat here but this is what Cranked has to put up with in the absence of the Bukit (not sure how posting stories works)

The Australian leg of the QS is now almost complete.

There have been 4 events. All webcast live.

As a matter of interest, has anyone here watched any of it live?

What kind of a surf journalist are you ... don't answer that !

I watched little bits and pieces. but the waves weren't much chop, or had too much chop and ranged from insipid to minuscule.

Hey, on another topic, unless I'm mistaking, you used to work for the safari bus mob that stopped off at Plomer etc ... when did they pull the plug on that?
