Re: that wetsuit discussion...

Couldn't you just wear those neoprene socks some boogers wear?
Latex socks to ride 20knt onshore kneecappers in the rain seems a bit much.

Like why would anyone, a full adult, threaten to punch a 13 year old kid in the surf.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I actually thought some of his earlier heats were pretty weak, he wasn't matching the speed of the wave.
But he stepped up. That finishing move on the lower 9 was crazy.

Potts was his groupie in the booth, arguing with judges who didn't give him tens.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

If you look at the replay of the first big top turn on kolohe's wave just now there's something big in the wave.
About the 26 minute mark.
I just tuned in and don't have my bearings, it could be a ski, or strider.

Any design or fin guru's know the theory behind the mini fins/nodules/nipples on Carissa Moore's board? https://i.imgur.com/G8AzCJ6.jpg Similar to vortex control winglets on aircraft wings. An attempt to get more laminar flow off the tail, operating a little like channels. Probably also gives her m...

But the Webber V wave speil said property values triple near good surf breaks!
That's not all that far from the truth, in Narrabeen and southern California at least.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

'Recreational amenity of the beaches' is the key phrase in the deeds and legislation, Steve. Neither act, nor the original deeds, nor the schedules include any mention of waves or surf. As far as I am aware the only mention of maintaining or improving surf in the original paperwork and planning is i...

Weather patterns for the rest of June look like they were drawn by a drunk. More spring than early winter.
So spring-like here.

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

Some big balls on those groms. I've seen a lot of sharks in the surf. Been bumped once in Indo. Only places I've been scared enough to rapidly exit the water have been Spookies near Angourie, and Gracetown. Couple of other places in WA where I haven't paddled out, including once with legion in the M...
