Avocas not working today.

I've heard North Entrace can be ok as well.

Side note Wyong to Norah Head is 25 mins. To Avoca 35 mins.

Although not as the crow flies. Yep, nowhere between Woy Woy and Norah Head gets any waves :wink:

Yep. It looks sweet. But I’m in Sydney. And would want to feel it up first. Thanks anyway.

A good article this week by Nick Carroll on Coastalwatch about Indo surf trips and the lack of medical services.

"Jamie Gray says he thinks the influx of new customers will eventually force improvements in safety net protection across the board: “With less skilled clients, even the small resorts are going to have to step it up,” he says. “Those changes might actually happen pretty fast.”

Bullshit. Marketing spin to stop this market worrying. What a CNT.

Can't believe these surf tour company's exist. They do little.

That articles been around for a while. I was thinking that when we were in Fiji which is pretty well organised. Paddled back to the boat at Namotu and I couldn't work out which boat was ours. Ended up getting onto another boat that took me to the island. Trouble was I wasn't staying there. He took me back and I eventually found the boat. Everyone was snorkelling so no one was onboard.

When I snapped my rental at Cloudbreak they were pointing in across the reef for me to get the half that snapped off. I couldn't see it. I paddled out to the boat on half a surfboard but they took off to get the broken piece of board leaving me out in the middle of the reef. Got on another boat to wait.
Both these cases were just silly but if anything had actually gone wrong I reckon I could easily be fcuked up out there and a long way from immediate medical attention. Guess the resorts are close.

Kind of similar when I was surfing Hyatt Reef with my son when he was fairly little. He decided he wanted to go in after a while. Our boat had gone back to shore and the boat that happened to come out with someone else wasn't keen on taking us in.

Read an interesting article about Mark Richards and his back issues. He has a long trunk and short legs which has led to major back issues throughout his career.

Got me pondering the question. What is the best build for a person who surfs a lot. Any opinions?

Long torso with stumpy bandy legs like a jockey has always been an asset....or at least not a deterant to a career in surfing.

That’s my build. Didn’t know until I got professionally fitted for a road bike. They said it made things difficult getting the right frame. Haven’t had any back issues touch wood.
Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes the reason is you’re just a stupid cunt.

Apparently people with long trunks and short legs are less attractive to women and have unfavourable health outcomes
