Re: Where did you surf today ?

High tide rock offs in the dark,
Probably release more adrenalin than the actual waves.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

If people organised time off today ahead of what's to come, well...

Most annoying part for me is the early and late high tides, as I can't get any days off. Rock off tomorrow could be tricky.

Storm force winds around the core of that low as it pushes out off the Hunter curve.

we could have an epic day on our hands tomorrow.
I can't decide what board I want to surf.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I want go get some with a futures box which are aimilar. Upright large front and small rear. Running rasta set at the minute and I would like to try some with a bit less rake. Get some twinny's like the MR's in futures, and see if you can find some side bites from a 2+1 or longboard to use as the r...

I wonder how many Australian branded boards sell in the states, compared to u.s boards in oz.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Don't they help initiate the turn when you lean, especially if you're not on the tail? Like a 1+2 does. I would love to try either a bonzer or widowmaker in the 6'6 to 7'0 range for 6-8ft Lennox. But i also want to try a Phil Myers 10 channel for that too. Probably not gonna happen anytime soon. Th...

I agree.
Adam Robbo surfs thrusters to perfection.
Oh, and Margo.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I really hate watching that tight little arc thruster surfing or if they are a bit gorillaish style wise. Quads improve your surfing IMHO. If the wave has enough push, you can easily hold your line on a thruster and avoid tight arcs. I don't mind taking a bit longer board out either for a bit of ex...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

The type of waves where people like the modern quad for speed and hold in the barrel, I prefer a channel bottom thruster. The Ab's I've had have never felt rudder like at all. Always had small fins in them. My current shorty tho is a quad but I've put twinzer fins in standard quad placement. I like ...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Yes, the thruster is the standard to which other boards are compared. I was just thinking of how to summarise what to expect out of bonzer. And no point getting one unless you have occasional access to walling, quick, semi-hollow to hollow waves in the waist to head high range. A bit silly choosing...

Beautiful autumn!
So many empty waves to choose from when there is east swells and light winds.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Lennox boat channel this evening, alone. Was watching a few storm cells move by east and west, and then got hit by one. Was really cool, just sitting out there laughing. The wind and rain got so heavy I could barely see. Just as it was starting I could see a SUP paddling out across the lagoon and by...
