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

30yo killed at Fraser Island. No details of type of shark.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Does that include us Nick?

Planning on my first surf in almost 5 months. Some nice NE swell would be perfect to spread out the crowd on the NB’s.

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

Don’t think you’d get the tightness to really stem the flow. Better than nothing though I’d think.

yep, and clear water.
Steve, the BG article talks about carrying tourniquets. Do you have one considering where you surf? My Mrs gave me one that the cops carry. It’s kept in my car. Simple to use.

Looked like a 10 footer. So juvenile?

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

Mate just texted me. He was there earlier and was told by a bloke in the carpark to be careful that a shark had been seen in the lineup. He decided to give it a miss and went home. Heard the sirens and helicopter a short time later. Knew exactly what was happening. Said he feels sick. Very thankful ...

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

News reports saying 60yo from Queensland. Tragic. Apparently other surfers fought it off and dragged him to shore. Mate lives there. Waiting to hear from him.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Switching SW/SSW until 3.30, swung S for about 20 minutes, then went SW. Pretty much clean all day.

What time BA? It wasn’t as daunting as it looked, heaps of water under it and a time between sets and waves.
Maybe around 2. Big set rolled through and caught everyone inside. Well that’s what it looked like on the cam.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Avoca became manageable but it’s busy for 2 peaks and I’ve not seen so many people botch rides and drop ins for years. Surf had power and was too good for some. Shoulder will ache tonight. For the record rode a 6’8 Fred Rubble. Could have used a rounded pin. Looked at Avoca on the cam earlier this ...

wooooo solid Germans today.
Watched that this morning from the lookout. Looked big and wild. Some waves seemed to be breaking in a bit of a different spot. Closer to the headland.

Edit. Just saw you’re other post. Definitely looked like it was breaking further north at times.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I was also called, emergency rescue call-out. Surfed my fuschia brains out today! The swell really booted again this afternoon, way up into the 10'+ range. Little Makaha off the back of Long Reef was like big Laniakea. Kelly surfed Little Avalon and gave the entire suburb of Avalon a shivery attack...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Some guy snapped his leggie at Newport today and got dragged around to Bilgola and swam in there. Police were called. Nick, RUOK?
