Avoca. Good. 3ft. Fast fun waves with a bit of a hollow quick take off but some faces and chasers.

Had new Reactor rear quads in my Fred Rubble. Amazing difference. Board felt really whippy. Very happy with the purchase.

Mid north coast breakwall peaks. Not quite 3 foot. Soupy swell but wedgy with clean faces. Pretty fun for marginal conditions

Well the points are pretty fun on the ultra low tides the last couple days and plenty of sand on the beaches for the highs. Just a pity about these easterly winds, though keeps the crowds at bay (or at the bay I guess :lol: )

It’s an interesting story that during WW2 Bob Hope and a group of fellow entertainers had to crash land on a sand bank in the Camden Haven River at Laurieton. It was a wild landing with the plane almost somersaulting. That night Bob and his colleagues put on an impromptu show in the Laurieton School of Arts hall. As he was about the biggest star in the world at the time, it was a big deal for local residents. Bob certainly remembered the episode because I saw him bring up the story when he was interviewed quite late in his life about his wartime experiences.

I've read about that incident before. Pretty funny.

Some shapely peaks on a popular isolated back beach. Looking a lot like good day at Boomerang. Fish going very well in the conditions.

Fun surf with hatchnam at flat rock.
Thanks again for bringing the board up.

Last 2 waves i got were long and walled up and I really started to get a feel for the board.
Was the missing link in the quiver really, at the moment.

No trouble at all. The board looks like a keeper. Handled steep take offs and look smooth cutting back
