Re: Just general surfing stuff

Gab's 9.43.
Hard to know how many points that aerial is worth in the context.
If there was no aerial and the wave chose not to spit, it was possibly a 6.5. The barrel was not particularly long and he was never deep.

Great for anyone. But as you are muso, you don't want to be losing feeling in your thumb. Good news.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Basically, they see a bit of a boom coming with the Olympics, wavepools and more surfing interest in Asia. Plus, DHD have bought Modom, a softboard and surf accessory business.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

The Peahi conditions were beyond all the paddlers, but there was no shortage of ridiculous guts from the women, particularly Keala. She's great and a really good surfer. But, to put it in context, this was Keala's highest scoring wave of the day to win the title. A 2.97. http://www.worldsurfleague.c...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

With Sally Fitzgibbons' Keramas tube and her three tubes today, and her evident enjoyment of them, I am giving Sally my Tubehound Award. Not saying she is necessarily the best tuberider in the group, but she gets them and she likes them. That's a Tubehound!

Alana's 7.6 that ended Lakey's title run was a well-surfed wave.

Re: Nth NSW sharks. Can they p!ss off already?

The WA report found 'only' a third of attacks occurred in water temps of 20°C or over.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I spent a week in Port Macquarie last year. Really nice spot. Some long term residents I know do wish the town wasn't growing so much.
