Re: Where did you surf today ?

Jesus fcuken christ the post Christmas Sydney shit spell is awesome. It tried to break itself this morning with a hesitant and feeble minded pulse from the sth, crossing up the 18" worth of easterly swell that's been trickling down from the Goldy for the past week. Result, waves of a gutlessness no...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I occasionally have to reverse a boat trailer up a steep undulating incline with a 90° turn and a kerb at the beginning. With automatic and low range it's a piece of cake. First try every time. A front towball would make it even easier. Legit question...why are front towballs not a thing for tricky...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I just saw an article on Facebook about abalone season in Perth being cancelled due to swell. Someone referenced kilojoules when talking about swell height.

Cranked has a legion of converts, unless of course it was Cranked.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Super fun session at South Steyne right after the wind change. Wind might blow this nor east swell away by the end of the day.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Offshore finally and some nice waves and good banks about.

Surfed until the tide got too low and made too many closeouts. Will go again later in the wind once the tide comes in.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I’m pretty sure someone is going to drown today. Does it stress you to watch clueless people wander into serious situations? Was watching a kid on Xmas day at Boomerang on a bodyboard with no flippers go out in a rip, beach was pretty empty and his parents were too busy talking to friends and havin...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

North Woonona. 2-3 foot wind affected right and left peaks breaking into and off the reef bed. Fairly short waves but still enough of a run to put in a couple of turns. Then took the pod handplane out a bit further south between the flags with waves pitching top to bottom over a waist high sandbank...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I spent a bit of time sniffing around that area and it's hard work. Lots of wind, always and it can easily change direction turning spots on and off. Swell can jump quickly. Remember checking Ocean Beach at Denmark around 10am and it was dead flat and checking again around 3pm and it jumped to 8 foo...

Bonzer?
Yep. It's a 6'4" but kind of wished i had another 4-6 inches (story of my life) to get the early entry. Dodged the sets but got a few nice inside ones, plenty of push behind them.

Solid stand up barrels at Boomerang before the king tide killed it.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Ok my ears aren't draining. I also get weird scratchy sounds with certain frequencies. Time to put in some plugs- anyone got good recommendations for ear plugs? Blue tack is effective but I can't hear a thing. And I talk too loudly to other people- grandpa Simpson style I use the surf ears when i r...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Super fun this morning. Ended up around Poles at DY, getting a fair bit of energy in there with hardly anyone out. Was way better than it looked from the beach and the wind wasn't really affecting it.

I gotta get me a handplane. What one have you got?
One of these

Add some body boarding fins, and you’re set. Solid workout though, lots of swimming and treading water.
