Re: The Tulla Tub

The board looks a bit fresher in your pic 😂 It’s definitely not a new board anymore. The Hayden thruster fins in it were pretty beat up. I think it was from people in the queue sliding into the mesh, fins first as the sets get pumped out. I bought my own one. Everyone who got bounced in the barrel ...

Re: The Tulla Tub

I surfed pinhead’s board based on his recommendation. Saved me spending too much time feeling them all up. What'd you think of it Buddy? It was fun, had enough speed, predictable. Did the job. I found I had no time to think out there, it was just go, go, go. I think forehand I’d almost like somethi...

A staff member told me if there’s less than 18 in the group they let them (staff) as long as shift is over, join the group.
Yes the surf coaches are cool. There was one in our group.

Re: The Tulla Tub

Went to the tub today. Had a sub par session but the whole experience was marred by a serious customer service fail. The siren for last wave had gone everyone was lined up for their waves, when about 10 people who I assumed where the lifesavers swam past the line of surfers to the take off zone and ...

Re: The Tulla Tub

There are no Firewire boards in the rental or retail shop at the tub - could this be because UrbnSurf are competing with Slater Wave? Need Sunny to tell me what the word on the street is.

Re: The Tulla Tub

All the non professional videos ive seen on the place makes it look very unimpressive. Even on the barrel setting (advanced) its prone to lip spilling, chandeliers and close outs. Novelty wave at best. Doesn't look very enjoyable https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CYvoMPAB3jU :lol: :lol: yikes! I'd ra...

Re: The Tulla Tub

Did you snake grooter each set? I would have if I'd known he was there. (and what he looked like) I was wearing a Grey Gath helmet surfing an orange board for the 17:00 session mate, didn't see anyone wearing a hat out there on the left :) There was a pic of his head gash after he head butted a lon...

What's your take on those surf caps, Pinnie?
You don't have to duck dive at the tub so you barely notice it.

Re: The Tulla Tub

Had a session today on the intermediate mode. Minus - pretty weak, hard to find speed for turns. Plus - fewer falls and more waves. Surfed the JS Bullseye again. I wanted to try it as a quad but the rental shop didn't have any quad fins! sad. I think intermediate with the Bullseye as a quad will be ...

Re: The Tulla Tub

Murphys farken Law. Got an email this morning at 05:21 that the Tub is closed due to the massive dust storm that has blown across Victoria from South Australia last night. Understandable though, my pool (fcuk I hate pools) is now a delightful milk chocolate brown and there is reddish brown pools of...

Re: The Tulla Tub

I guess that’s what they want - you to buy big name boards you normally wouldn’t. Was it standard pu/pe construction? No the hy-fi. Very sparky. I think this arrangement will sell a ton of boards, its a low friction way to try stuff out. Also the rental shop guys are going to learn pretty quickly w...

Re: The Tulla Tub

Had another session on the advanced left today. Last time I was there, I had a look through the rental shop - lots of cool looking sticks calling out to be ridden. At only $15 for 2 hrs, I resolved to rent a Holy Grail but alas today there were none in my preferred volume range. The only thing they ...

Pinny, it sounds like you're adapting to its quirks and starting to enjoy it, or at least see some potential?
I think so. Will see how I go.

Re: The Tulla Tub

Ok had a better session today only a bit of smoke and no asthma. The facility itself has a contemporary surf retail vibe. It feels like you're on the beach with people getting ready to go out and coming in, boards lying everywhere and so on - but you're not, you're beside a concrete lined swimming p...
