Re: Where did you surf today ?

Checked out a few spots, everywhere was crowded with the smaller swell and light offshores. There was about 30 out at Lefties, all in a tight little group. I tried Noises, didn't score, so reluctantly paddled over to Lefties. And who should be at the top of the queue but my mate, it's been his stap...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I would have thought the swell is too east for Deadies to have much today?

Re: skateboarding ...

Just took my son to Sydney Park skate park. He thought it was just ok until he discovered the big bowl. Enormous set up, 8 - 10 foot drop in sections at the top end of the bowl with a 20 foot deep section at the other end. He charged it. He's not even close to teenage years yet his skating level is ...

So if you've ridden it 4 times and it's mint, why are the bad reviews turning you off?

Re: The Outsider

Well if Victoria (thought Urbnsurf might get one but the lockout won't allow it) and Queensland are no go's, then NSW has them all - Newcastle plus 3 and all in very short notice. Presumably Destination NSW is there with taxpayer money. Not the lockout WSL owns Kelly Slater wave pool, they won't us...

Re: The Outsider

I was just pondering foamy’s question to Nick and it got me thinking about the apparent discrepancy between the ‘live’ and ‘broadcast’ audiences. Most sports, if you’re packing out a stadium it would seem that you can assume x times that number will watch on telly or whatever but surfing seems to b...

Re: The Outsider

A pretty hefty contribution to the economic prosperity that makes Lennox the sort of place you and your family want to live in. You sure do come up with some weird assumptions. If I wanted economic prosperity I'd be making cold calls beside Loof at Bondi Junction. No you wouldn't. Never spoken to a...

We aren’t back yet. But, I’m mainly WFH anyways.

Couldn’t sustain part time? Would be nice.
I actually preferred part time, boss wanted everyone back in full time.

Covid man. It’s the age of mid week surfing.
It was the age of mid-week surfing.

I went back to full time work in January (had been part time since March) and back into the city every day now as well.

Re: The Outsider

Unfortunately for my surfing, life is about competing priorities. Far too often lately, surfing rarely makes the top 3.

I'm not that good. Mediocre, average, middle of the road, occasionally above par, occasionally below par, often a kook but interspersed with the occasional moments of competence.

Re: The Outsider

According to Swellnet, looks like Snapper is in doubt now as well.

A plane full of pro's flying halfway around the world, quarantining in a hotel all to spend a few weeks surfing at Newie.

Stick a fork in it, this thing is done.

Re: The Outsider

Or conversely, if the power brokers and residents of the Lennox region had sat down with the WSL and discussed the proposition, rather than going down the road of group tantrum ... then maybe just maybe they could have had the best of both worlds. Seems like there maybe a feeling of remorse seeping...

Re: The Outsider

And I tell ya what, there'll be a lot of kids at any of the Australian venues who'll be stoked out of their minds at the chance to meet or even just see people like JJF, Italo, Steph, Carissa, etc etc etc, in free surfs, in competitive action, and maybe saying hello or whatever. Those surfers are g...
