Re: Just general surfing stuff

Just watched a vid of Jaws during a big swell a couple of days ago. Totally out of control crowd-wise. Seems any bloke who can afford a gun and an inflation vest is out there. Three blokes on a wave, boards getting bailed, loose boards in the impact zone. Frightening at that size.

Re: Good month for Baja Sur - Pacific West Coast

I loved San Fran. Do a night tour at Alcatraz for a bit of pants wetting. Genuinely creepy. Get a pair of these and you’ll have lots of friends. https://encrypted-tbn2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSmSZxJ3g4etz4cdBstBLYDG_g4BetE9E18S9qhGmjPl2uKXAgcwg Braithy’s probably got a pair he can lend you.

Just about every big sports gambling company offers betting on the WSL.
Back in the day when I punted a bit, Sportsbet offered betting on heats. Odds were atrocious. One surfer would be $1.10 and the other guy would be $1.40. Pointless.

Glassy peaks galore. Low crowds. Weekend surfing is ok.

Unbelievably, there were a couple of blokes wearing steamers. Must be Queenslanders.

Chest-high drainers on the low tide at dawn. Fun enough on a hot morning.

Re: Good month for Baja Sur - Pacific West Coast

I'm scared of getting lost in the desert on some random dirt road if I take a wrong turn and then die horribly. There do seem to be a number of breaks north of La Pastora, but in the middle of no where quite aways from the highways Cool way to go though. Good story for your friends and family. Way ...

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

A few people on here have tried them. Most seemed to like them. I personally didn’t like the fit or quality. The Quikkie springsuit I picked up online for the same price feels way better quality-wise.

Super fun waist to occasional chest-high peaks for an hour and a half with just me and the missus out. Northern Beaches during xmas school holidays. Go figure.

Crescent?
Forster. No much surf around though.
Why’s everyone avoiding Crescent? You, Iggy, Shearer and Beany could have a few drinks and talk about food.

Fuschia. I just watched a click bait thing with Gabby dropping in on Kelly. What an unlikeable person he is.
There’s competitive, and there’s cuntish. The way he turned into him was cuntish.

Re: Strahan tassie

That's all true, godsave, but Queenstown in Tassie is a legit shithole, full of properly weird locals. Digger have a look at the back blocks around Agnes. Surf of a sort, fishing, and cheaper than Gympie. Lots of blockies living in caravans and sheds. It’s the type of place where the girl behind th...

Re: Strahan tassie

That part of Tassie is pretty open to the weather, but that probably keeps the crowds and prices down. Braithy’s your Tassie man. He’ll fill you in.

Re: Strahan tassie

I was down there a couple of years ago. Trev nailed it. Queenstown is like an alien planet.
