Surely the likes of Lewis Hamilton at Kelly’s pool have throughly torpedoed the myth of surfing being difficult to learn?
Surfing in a wave pool is surfing?

It's all a bit pointless, there are heaps out there. I remember seals getting smashed out at Little Island without too much media attention.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Despite the wind, there are quite a few waves about with bugger all people. It's way more fun than it looks.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Crap 1st go out, swell direction/tide/wind combo just wasn't handling where I was so went in after a bunch of closeouts.

Did a quick scope of a few spots on the way home, with another beach looking much better. Suited up and felt much better after a few, much higher quality, waves.

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

This is a semi-gun shape and the reality is I don't ride the waves it's designed for. Have a Mini Merk in the board rack (thanks Loof) that I like and my beloved channel bottom (best ever board status) that Cranky felt up. But I like the look of a speed egg in maybe a 6'8" or 7'0" size or maybe an O...

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

Yeah, took it off first thing.

I'm not a fan of pads at all. Prefer the full wax on boards.

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

Where can i buy a wetsuit for my 18 month old? Whats available? Check out Sideways in Brookie. Plenty of smaller kids stuff and not overly expensive given they will grow out of it in 6 - 12 months. ha ha I went to that shop yesterday just out of curiosity.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I went in a mal club comp up the northern beaches a few years back. Nailed a fin first take off and managed to swing the board back around. Was stoked with it, got a few hoots. When I went in, I was told that it didn't count as fin first take offs weren't a recognised scoring manoevre. Didn't bother...

My splitboard arrived today. Man I'm glad I didn't keep trying to DIY.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

5:30am, there was a bit of swell early and almost no wind. Got a handful of ho-hum waves. Then possibly the best wave of the day. I was riding a 7'6 pin tail mid-length for a change. Overhead wave, beautiful steep drop, got some speed up, enough to hit a hard bottom turn that - forgetting I was on ...
