Re: Just general surfing stuff

Did you get some Wyre. I just got home and checked the Point, looked pretty damn delicious. Yep, what a wave! My first time at Lennox would you believe, couldn't find a park for a while which was an indication of the crowd but ended up with three good rides. The first two came in quick succession, ...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I'm hoping to be one of those hopeless hacks out at the Ox tomorrow. Good luck mate, find that little knob of sand and sit on it. Wait for the good ones. If I was down there you could rummage through the quiver but it’s too risky while I’m up at Bribie Thanks Steve, it's a bummer we couldn't meet u...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Fun as at the open beach here. Couldn't believe it, smooth and pesky with some decent sets still coming through.

I have a bad feeling what feels like a big, drawn out backhand turn looks more like an old man reaching for the biscuit tin, but I had a ball trying.

Edit- peaky, not pesky

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I think your definition of smaller surf probably differs from mine. The same for bigger waves as well! But I agree here with Shearer & Thud, a bigger board allows me earlier entry into waves where I'd probably otherwise get smashed at a critical takeoff due to lack of water time, poor reflexes, poo...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

BP doesn't miss. A good park in the cutting, bam! it just turned up in front like a couch there waiting for me. slid up to the car in front-- backed in, juuuust got through the reverse section with my head only slightly turned. Full hook in, no look open parallel park. Checked the surf from there- p...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Hey Steve, I’m thinking of getting one of these channel bottomed step ups in a 6’6 or 6’8 as they look pretty sweet. https://sideways.com.au/free-flight-keg-round-tail-step-up-shortboard/ For only $549 it’s looking too good to pass up. Have you felt one up in the flesh? Or ridden one? They look goo...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

scratch that 3-4' call. 4-5' with the odd bigger one, no wind, very very pretty indeed. Yep. Cranking, out at a deep water rock shelf bommie on my awful 90's banged up 7'6", big and pretty was exactly what came to mind. Are we in for 7 days of this?! @pirate, gotcha. Were you in the same neck of th...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Absolute opposite at northern end of Illawarra this am. Tide too high, fat and inconsequential. SP? If so, I checked their just after 7.30 this morning. It was doing the backwash thing. Some lefts still coming through, but looked like it was pinching off quick and flubbery. I kinda had the opposite...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Yes. With about 500 people on it. If it delivers at that size, i will be scouting a couple of prime beachies just north and south of the gong that eat those conditions up. Just gotta wait and see. The pessimist inside me is calling 4 foot tops, and surfing a 6’2 shorty. Hope I am proved wrong Shoul...

Yep, Swellnet did a lengthy article on him and the epoxy issues.

I sold my JD, liked it a lot just didn’t get the optimum conditions for it regularly enough.
What are the optimum conditions for them?

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Yes he developed epoxy sensitivity. Bit hard given his epoxy construction techniques. He would cover himself head to toe in like a cleanroom suit and full head masks etc with taped joins everywhere and still break out in chronic rashes. And as a result gave it away, something he'd spent a couple of...

I'm back, but moved on from JD.
I have been checking out the josh Dowling thread. Looks like he gets a lot of respect round abouts!
