Trev?
Trevor?


TREV!?
Still here. Just home from Noosa.
Only surfed Pussy Point but good fun.
Broke a fin though. Not even on the board. It just got turned over in the shallows and "Crack".

Didn't affect the handling though.

Wait, you can't tell when you've got a broken fin, Herr Trev?

Well, it's got a decent sized centre fin. I knew it was broken. Just didn't want to stop surfing.
Could probably run it a a single.

Ok. The rare times I've had a fin issue it's immediately noticeable and means end of surf.

I was disappointed the WSL didn’t highlight the driftwood
But I certainly look forward to a barrel there on my twinnie one day

I’m spending a few days at Rainbow Bay. I have surfed here occasionally since 1971. This weekend has easily had the longest average length of board I’ve ever seen. The waves have been longboard suitable, but still, all these teenagers carrying giant surfboards. I’ve been surprised. I don’t get out enough.

Very low hipster component. It’s seems like every Tom, Dick and Carrie including the groms.

How many don't have legropes?

It’s great young people surfing logs and other stuff. Great to see fit and dexterous youth grooving as opposed to....us.

….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.

Great if they can actually surf the fcuking things. Plenty of wannabes at Bondi.

Well there is that.

There’s a young hipster up here who rides logs exclusively. Classy surfer. It’s 99% shortboard environment so it’s good to see.
