Looks like a tooth from a bull, yeah.
DPI marine biologist says it's a white.
Very narrow base for a white, but it could be from a juvenile, before they swap to mammals.
Normally they are more of an equilateral triangle shape, without the raised central portion.

Mind you, my sense of scale is all shot to bits by comparing it with that cloven hoof.

it's a nice looking tooth.

ancient palm beach literature reads; if bequeathing a great white's tooth in oceanic waters by way of incident, one must wear it around thy neck for total immunity from further Selachimorpha consultation.

I'm getting less enthusiastic about the cold though
X 2 have shed a few Kgs and really feeling it
I've never really had kgs to shed. The osteoarthritic wrist and shoulder would also appreciate warmer seast

Your Crancky mate is where it's at - minus the bike stuff as I'm now struggling on anything rougher than an airport runway
I went riding with him in the hills near Perth a few times, he’s quite mad.
Footpaths are where it’s at, legal here too.
Go, Cranky :-D-:

Obviously SWVIC you need to move to a healthier clime, just like those tubercula dudes in the 19th and early 20thC.

Just trot of to Centerlink, get a Disability Pension and come on over. Its gonna be just like Uncle Bobs surf team of the 70's but Bali based.

You have my medium term future sorted. If only dealing with welfare were still as care-free as it once was

Yes, croissy, the good old days, when you could suck the public tit for a few years, decide it's time to get ahead, get to work for a year or so and buy a fcuken house. And when I join Cranked, you'll be paying :wink:

I’ve seen quite a few blokes kiteboarding on normal surfboards at Longy. Must be a thing. I guess they don’t do jumps?

trust me. there's nothing more satisfying than wanking out a load into the dry dust while the surrounding forest and wildlife burn to the ground around you.

A lot of the guys do it without straps. Especially for good quality, point break waves.
You tack out, then pick your set and surf down the line. Carves and surf style turns but can get around sections much easier.

Royal National Park beach break. Peaky swell. A bit wonky and shifty but with plenty of waves coming through and still reasonably punchy.

Sets were a good foot or two overhead. Rights were shorter, mostly a chance for a quick cover up if you were in position. The lefts had a decent wall and bowl with a good section or two to hit up.

Surfed the trusty 80’s belly channel 6’3 thruster which has proven to be a great board for me in overhead beachbreaks. Gets in early, has plenty of speed and drive through turns and holds steady always.

Only four other surfers out over the entire beach. Had a peak to myself the whole time.

Went out for a flounder around....and to try the steamer I nabbed at Vinnies before I went OS. Flounder I did. Caught a couple of nothing waves then snared a good one that stood up out the back and ran into the inside section. Inside is pretty good at the moment. Stoked.
