A doctor (in his 60s) I know tore his tendon lifting a kayak.
He called his mate, an ortho, who said:

"You already know it makes no difference and we don't operate on old fcuks like you, are you just calling to tell me you don't know how winches work?"

Re: Where did you surf today ?

hows the level of surfing there Groots? crowds, localism? Crowds and skill is way higher than where I am from. It's taking some getting used to, my wave count per session has dropped considerably. Apparently lots of people have taken up.surfing due to COVID here - which would be on par with Austral...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

The Hook at 🎅 Cruz. Some arsehole hit me right in my arse crack with his longboard fin as he speared through white water into a crowd! Hurts like a mofo. Then I got utterly fcuking slammed on a bomb wave that sent me back over the falls and buried me. After that I decided to hang around the outside ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Didn't end up making that SoCal trip. Thought i would do the right thing i.e. COVID and stay local. It is a decision I have not regretted as the run of swell in Northern California has been pretty awesome. I surfed at a beach called Private's in Santa Cruz yesterday to give my shoulders a little res...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Some big swell is on the way over here next week. A surfer went missing at Ocean Beach in SF the other day as well.

Noticed a wee bit of localism and aggro in the water this morning at Santa Cruz - seems to be more prevalent in these bigger winter swells.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Got it thanks fellas, will keep those in mind. I had intended to go a fair way down South so I'll look into AirBnB's in those spots NC - Re: North of LA, how far mate? Ventura? Santa Barbara? Looking at that coastline I'm guessing the more W and SW swell directions are going to be what I should look...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Groots you need to find new spots. Didn't you used to surf some spot in vicco with some name like Easy Bay or Beginner's Beach or something? And now you're surfing Pleasure Point. Isn't there a Death Slab or Widowmaker Cove nearby? Big Left at Flinders? I loved that wave. Paddle out was a PITA bein...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Pleasure Point Santa Cruz a couple of days ago on Thanksgiving morning 1.5 times overhead and 2 times on the bombs. Felt good to be out in some bigger stuff for a change. Hard fcuken work but I got a couple. Definitely doesn't have the power of Victorian waves west of the cape at that size though. W...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I reckon most young physically able teenagers could learn to surf if they really wanted to and could devote enough time to it. The thing is, the reality of learning to surf and surfing doesn’t appeal to a lot of people. It’s physically exhausting, often cold and lonely and can be scary at times. So...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

The Point at Santa Cruz Chatted with a nice fella that was riding a "freeway board". It's a bit of thing down here given the amount of freeways, apparently one can find a surfboard with some regularity on the side of the road. He was pretty happy with it, only cost about $120 in fiberglass repairs a...
