If I’ve learned anything from Realsurf is that there Is no 7 foot.

Re: skateboarding ...

Cmon Cranked, the very nature of Realsurf is good natured ribbing, pointless arguments and talking crap about everything and only occasionally surfing.

Your posts are appreciated here.

Re: 2020

Had plenty of opportunities for waves as working less. Had many insanely good surfs and felt like I had improved significantly, the first year in a long time I can say that. Surfed breaks further afield, less crowded which probably contributed to my surfing improving. Learned I will never go cheap o...

Two sessions out the farm today 3-4 foot . Not so crowded for once but both frustrating surfs with no designated take off zones . Still got some good waves in amongst the crap with the morning being better wind wise .
Surprising it was as big as that.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Nah, generally steamer May to Aug. September to Oct/Nov is springsuit territory unless it’s a dawnie.

December to Apr is generally boardies and 1 mm vest for sun protection.

I always have a problem buying a wettie at this time of year knowing it's about to go in the cupboard unti...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Yep. Let's look after the environment.

Let's build wavepools in floodplains.

And so on.

Like the rest of the pollies, we're a pretty conflicted bunch.
