Re: Where did you surf today ?

My reincarnation as a surfer is scheduled for next Tuesday. I'll fill everyone in the vicissitudes I have suffered shortly. It's a cautionary tale.

Re: Midlengths

Give the file to someone with a shaping machine? I've often thought that the custom board process should start with sitting down with a shaper and deciding on the 3D shape you want. You then get a copy of the file that you can use to get the blank cut and glassed , and as a starting point for your n...

The attenuated, wonky swell that comes over the reef. The swell exposure of the WA coast is mind boggling, way better than indo

Re: Where did you surf today ?

There's about 10 quite good reef breaks spread over about 10k. If the offshore reef didn't block and disrupt the swell the area would really rate as a surf location, but it does and it isn't

I'm surprised it was that small and only 2 out. It was still the odd 4'er where I went. But lots out.
Bitumens, 1pm. There were a few bigger ones. The others went in and I surfed by myself. It's pretty quiet down there in the middle of the day.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

My second surf today, 2 out, shoulder high, caught a couple of waves, paddled about, no pain.

Things are looking good.

What's this about the mums in Byron Steve. Do they also give you anaphylactic reaction.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

but proper step-ups can ameliorate the deficiencies in a sub-par skill set. Only because they stop people from trying to turn. god dickless fcuking urban vegans who can't turn a 6'3" in OH surf should be put against the wall. but no-one rides 6'3"'s anymore, we've been brainwashed into thinking any...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Re booties. I've gave up on them decades ago as I find my feet stick to the board too much.

I've been told though, that the secret is to just put a very thin film of wax on your board.

Does anyone agree?

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Woohooooo! I'm back surfing! Just changed my existing ticket to go to Bali on 16 July (it was next Tues, a bit too early), just 2 weeks there this time. I already have my Sept and Nov tickets.

I'm gonna have to sit it out through a few big swells I guess.

Anyone else catching the shark behaviour on ABC RN at the moment?

Most excellent, but I've missed most of it.
