Chest high, consistent and waters warm. Whole stretch of beach with several choices of peaks all to myself this arvo.

Why am I moving to the country again?
So you can ride bikes? That great equivalent to surfing.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I'm trying to perfect the being-pushed-up-by-the-lip method, seen here at Sunset (first wave of the set) https://www.surfline.com/sessions/clips/5df03305f737aa6fd6cf7509 and also Rockies https://www.surfline.com/sessions/clips/5df5cc6723391f167a23c4a0 The idea is if you let the wave break on top of...

Surely the likes of Lewis Hamilton at Kelly’s pool have throughly torpedoed the myth of surfing being difficult to learn?
Surfing in a wave pool is surfing?

It's all a bit pointless, there are heaps out there. I remember seals getting smashed out at Little Island without too much media attention.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Despite the wind, there are quite a few waves about with bugger all people. It's way more fun than it looks.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Crap 1st go out, swell direction/tide/wind combo just wasn't handling where I was so went in after a bunch of closeouts.

Did a quick scope of a few spots on the way home, with another beach looking much better. Suited up and felt much better after a few, much higher quality, waves.

Re: bonzers.....the quad fad is over

This is a semi-gun shape and the reality is I don't ride the waves it's designed for. Have a Mini Merk in the board rack (thanks Loof) that I like and my beloved channel bottom (best ever board status) that Cranky felt up. But I like the look of a speed egg in maybe a 6'8" or 7'0" size or maybe an O...

Yeah, took it off first thing.

I'm not a fan of pads at all. Prefer the full wax on boards.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I went in a mal club comp up the northern beaches a few years back. Nailed a fin first take off and managed to swing the board back around. Was stoked with it, got a few hoots. When I went in, I was told that it didn't count as fin first take offs weren't a recognised scoring manoevre. Didn't bother...
