Re: that wetsuit discussion...

I know. I find it often happens with electrical appliances. I will repair it.

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

My needessentials has got a massive hole in the armpit. Have had it since August but started wearing it in October or so. If it wasn't for that, i would have been impressed. Fit was great; very soft, stretchy etc. I will try to repair, but i don't think i will buy again. Shame. August 2017? Surely ...

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

Don't be too sad. My rip curl flash bomb from two years ago (that I used for one winter) has a massive hole in the knee from duckdiving. My one from last year wasn't warm enough (the "cheap" non-smoothy model). So you're ahead. It's a minefield - and often luck of the draw. I've had some suits last...

Re: bonzers.....the quad fad is over

i'm getting one done from Malcolm in the next few weeks - $1050. To be fair though Batoes. Your choice of purveyors of surf equipment has been lacking in the past so let’s just wait and see huh? I hear that the Dead Kooks do a nice bonzer. :lol: You're right Jimmy - there's a good chance i'll never...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

There's waves around and plenty crowded pretty much everywhere down here. West wind is really starting to hit hard.

Re: bonzers.....the quad fad is over

I had my MLV out at green island yesterday and in smallish point waves - lots of fun.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

The water was cold and then you'd hit a warm patch. Very weird. Surf was cranking at my local this arvo. Four guys out. Haven't seen Shellharbour break as well in years. Mid length single fin (funboard/mini mal) to paddle in early - got very shallow on the inside bank. Will mind surf that session fo...

How's that wave. Board looks loose with stacks of lift. Nice riding.
That's my next one. I had a 6'3 - but too much foam for my short a**.

Pre dawn surf. Glassy 3 foot or so, peaky and super fun.

Tide made it too fat so out of the water at 6.30am.
Exactly my experience. Some fun waves - best i've had in months. It felt like autumn with the west and south winds swirling about. Shame about the tide.

How's this whole CI Bonzer thing ay? Interesting

Does the Octofish work in 2 foot weak peelers? Or does it need a bit of juice?
Mine didn't work that well fullstop.

My MLV is brilliant in the conditions you describe. The bumblebee also worked.
