Re: The Tulla Tub

A mate of mine reckons it may cost $79/hour.

I'll give it a go for the novelty but at that price, and given it is about an 80 minute drive from where I live, I'll probably measure my visits there in years.

Change the flight to a 7pm, and drop by the pool. Perhaps not a 7 degree winter afternoon in Melbourne though.
Bah! Crybaby!

Very big this morning on the Mornington Peninsula and it is only going to build too.

Windy but the Westerly direction will be okay for Bells

Re: Surfers right to be total dickheads under threat

I got hit in the head by a long boarder, broke my skull in two places and I now have a plate and 4 screws for life. To be honest if you don't use a legrope you're a farken arse if you take a board out in decent surf. Did he have a legrope on or not though? He did, my point was more that your abilit...

Re: Summer

With all the baby boomers and their grandkids I'll bet :lol: Truth be known that place can get pretty big maybe a couple of times a year. I've surfed pines when the swell was cresting over the outer boat markers (would have been 3 metre swell on average) in the dead of winter in a storm and it's pre...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Nah, that's the weird thing. It's always just been a reef. Historically, at the size and tide it was yesterday it would break about 80 m from shore. 50-60 m was then a fun Wally wave made for turns then running into a bowly section over the "suck rock". Only then did sand come into play and occasio...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Was at Pt Leo this morning. Didn't surf 'cause of work - I just wanted to look at 1st Reef to try and figure why it doesn't work anymore. Everything was in place for it to be as I remembered. Good size, right tide, but it just doesn't break like it did Meantime, where Groots probably was looked as ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Didn't find much quality in far south NSW a couple of weeks ago, surfed Quondola and Pambula river mouth but the surf was small and a bit junky This morning I surfed 2 - 3 metre swell at Pt Leo on an ocean as smooth as a glass table - nice to be home Hopefully will go back there again though, Pambul...

Can anyone share some advice on Eden/Pambula for me. Heading there in a couple of weeks and was hoping to get a few waves in.
