Not last Tuesday I didn’t. Maroubra can get really fkn good when the planets align.

But have scored well over the past few days though. Mostly throaty reef surf, and yesterday a tricky overhead beach break but punchy with some screamers

I’m sure the banks are doing just fine. It’s the straight south groundswell creating the problems. Bet your home break would fire up nicely with some east swell in the mix. Speaking of which, Friday is looking to be fun, albeit it a bit on the smaller side.

Probably. Although the sand looks pretty flat at most spots. Hopefully with a bit more size pushing through today, it’ll move around a bit.

Bronte was looking good this arvo......but 40 guys on a four metre take off and a few getting absolutely pole axed if they went from too far across. Fun to watch.

Fascinatingly the Japanese Govt has asked the world to begin addressing Japanese people in the home-grown manner, ie surname first, named name last

Does this mean the World Surf League has to now call Kanoa Igarashi, Igarashi Kanoa?

My god I hope so.

There's a very high bar, but this is one of the most moronic things you've said.

Or the 1.2 billion people who speak a Chinese dialect, or anyone who has ever had a Chinese friend, or finished high school.
