Re: Just general surfing stuff

Was there any demonstration at the WSL contest? Was noise about a paddle out, but I missed it if it happened. Fair to presume it didn't because it wasn't mention it in your BG account of the final?

Re: Summer

Nah, it is what it is. Felt good to wear a shortjohn and thin vest. Gunna buy a good 3/2 and try it with the shorty through winter. 4/3 is getting too hard. Besides, I can't get out of the chest zip without assistance Got a barely worn 4/3 Excel top of the range for sale if anyone is interested Size...

Re: Summer

0/10 for me as I only had my first surf since Nov on Saturday.* Contrary to Rustt, excellent conditions prevailed at Gunnamatta. Scored a couple of good ones, but paddle fitness had totally deserted me. Rip fcuked me over a few times

* Same argument, still summer

Re: Strahan tassie

Nah. There was no guarantee the board would be on the plane with me. I could have borrowed a board over there via a mate of a mate, but there was not enough swell on the eastern side. Onshore on the Western except for day 1 when the swell was tiny. Went to Martha Livinia for a look, but it was barel...

I'm living in Port Campbell now. Buckets of room for the bus in the backyard if you'd like a little detour on the way down

King Island is spectacular. Spent a couple of weeks there and would return at moment's notice

Re: Strahan tassie

Good the fcuk on you, digger. One day for sure. Stone's throw from the West and day trip to the NW. Plenty of gems nearby, in and out of the ocean. My mum spent much of her childhood on Robbins Island. I need to get there before I'm dead. Closest I got was a fantastic left just near on the mainland

Re: Strahan tassie

Same sentiment from me, digger. All the best to you and your family

Little bit out of the way from the direct route, but it'd be great to have another paddle out with you. I'm just about ready to trial my knee. Last surf was November. Hoping it stands up and Autumn is a good one

Meanwhile, there's 6m of swell hitting here. Just shy of long fetch cyclonic winds hit this morning. Wind going to swing a bit to open up some places. Just another day in vicco

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Ha, here's my old man take. I was on a twin regularly before Simon smacked the fcuk out of us with the thruster. Like near on everyone, I took to it and it changed my surfing by forcing me to stay closer to the pocket. Years later and there I was, surfing with a relatively newly acquired mate who, r...
