It's a lot like Avoca but much bigger and faster
....and with heavier locals.

Anybody with a shiny lure can catch a barracuda. Caught heaps in the Bahamas.
Delicious flakey white flesh, but slimy musky skin, also around here they can cause ciguatera poisoning.

3-2... should be fine up there this weekend. It's more than enough down here.
OBX is a decent getaway. Try to get all the way down to Hatteras, there's a good campground there, Frisco Woods.
Bring mozzie repellent.
Camping, lol.

It's fcuking cold, dude. If you think I can get the wymmins to camp you're crazy.

My steamer got lost in the move, I need to get a new one.

On the island where my grandma grew up in Fiji the locals wear socks when swimming because the contrast between their soles and their darker feet causes barracuda to attack.

….this was pushing off the wall not diving in.

...running out of breath underwater hasn’t been an issue. Not too bad for a 62 y/o who surfs irregularly.

Speed is distance over time.

Do you mean 60km/hr ?

I'm trying to perfect the being-pushed-up-by-the-lip method, seen here at Sunset (first wave of the set)

https://www.surfline.com/sessions/clips ... 6fd6cf7509

and also Rockies

https://www.surfline.com/sessions/clips ... 167a23c4a0

The idea is if you let the wave break on top of you, it disguises the stumble-up
First wave you did great, I will give you credit there. Second wave you could have easily got another 2 seconds cover up in that barrell, don't just race for the end section - good barrell riding is all about speed management.

Makes a lot of sense, you can share wine brokers.

Why am I moving to the country again?

So you can ride bikes? That great equivalent to surfing.

First week in February.

I’d like to make an announcement. This Summer, I’ll be going on any wave I want on the Northern Beaches. So yeah. No hard feelings. I’m not trying to be a dick. But that is what is going to be happening. So have a great day and watch out.
