Re: Where did you surf today ?

Well it's another sparkly day here with more of the 3-5' se swell, ticking fuschia boxes.

Re: New WSL tour

Yep very tough. The travel cos were ahead of the curve response-wise as were many of their customers, who were calling and asking to postpone trips to Indo etc way back in January. Other customers were more stoic, or maybe hopeful that the world's govts would not shut down travel the way they have, ...

Re: New WSL tour

That graph doesn’t say it’s in the calendar year though so Nicks idea could still work. So pipe might be first event in Jan like they tried to do few years ago? Yep. They're deliberately being non specific at present. Last time they tried to switch things a bit, they put out this v specific timetab...

Re: New WSL tour

Yeah the way it'd most likely work is: CT from late Feb to Sept/Oct, then Challengers Sept/Oct to Triple Crown. None of this is in 2020. There are many stumbling blocks between now and then. But the WSL was talking about this - a 2021 re-boot -- as far back as Sept last year. They had this idea that...

Re: New WSL tour

umm ledtool! pro surfing fanatic! I think you'll find the Challenger thing will shift to the end of the year, not the beginning. The CT will focus on six months through mid year. The WSL are v shifty on what happens to Pipe in this scenario but don't be surprised if they pull off the switcheroo they...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

fuschia great day here, swell a bit more bangy and difficult and it seems the COVID crowd has eased off. Thickened up late this arv, very muscular for its size, a little bit of sse bump. Meanwhile my pals in Hawaii are losing it, the nth shore as been pumping and right now an absolutely marvellous 1...

You know there are not many things in this world that cause me real sadness.

But one of them is that I will never get to surf with Polebean.

Haha I just threw that in there. Only read his article last night. But if he could report beaches are closed more often that would be nice.
jesus christ why are all these councils lying about shutting the beaches.

Let me guess, it is to keep out the blow-ins.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

You know one feature of the WW2 wrap up was the behaviour of the two bob big shot authoritarians, who didn't want to let go of the power they'd attained during wartime.

That's where the term "two bob big shot" arose.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Well, here's the rub. There are guards at the entrance to Bendalong road off the highway, GUARDS, checking licences and rate notices so that if you are not a resident, YOU DON'T GET IN. All the holiday rental houses are empty. All the caravan parks are empty. The local shop is closed. There is nobo...
