Why the focus on sunset NC? What about Rocky Point and Haleiwa and other spots? What is it about Sunset? It looks like a tricky somewhat unpredictable cnut of a wave.
It's the best wave aside from Pipe, Pipe is occupied. I'll go surf Rockies when it's small enough.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Fcuk! I went down to Sunset after the contest finished, the swell jumped 4' in half an hour and it was going mental, closing out the channel, bombing third reef. I paddled out on an 8'0" AB and stalked the second reef from the side, totally undergunned, really you needed a 10'0". It was a solid 12-1...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I know it isn't the thread but this does beg the question as GSTQ puts it:

If you're a poor Boomer, or a Boomer living in a non Western nation, are you really a Boomer?

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Yesterday 7'1". Sunset core locals are older than Pipe core locals. I dunno about better watermen, all the people who've been surfing this coast well for years are pretty fcuken competent. Today, wooo, bigger. Swell swung a bit NW then more north again around midday. Surfed Sunset for a couple of ho...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

ah who knows, it was a Monday and people work, there'd have been a few more out in the late arvo. The QS pros have all fled the scene and the CT pros' attention is all on Pipeline, you don't surf Sunset to get ready for Pipe. There's heaps of rec haole surfers around here now, people who've moved he...

What’s the Hawaiian equivalent of Collaroy Point?
Chuns reef. It's all time. Super super crowded and never over 4'.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Backyards to Sunset Pt then Kammieland, gorgeous day in Hawaii. Light to nonexistent wind and clean v straight NNE swell, a rare angle for this quality level. Not big, like 4-5' with some bigger sets, but spit clean. Backyards is like a long right point in these conditions. It felt like Tahiti. Abso...
