Gosh the maroubra forecast is a bit dismal isn’t it. When my mate said he didn’t get one single decent surf in a whole year of living in Sydney I thought it was hyperbole but actually I can well believe it. I’ll catch a couple for you guys over the next few days, cheer you sorry bastards up a bit

If your mate didn’t get a single good surf in for a whole year then he’s a kook.

Some mushy shoulder high plus beachie peaks down south and waist high plus clean reef gliders today. Nothing special but ok considering

Small offshore and peeling on the low tide. Too crowded but got a few this morning including a screaming fast nose ride that went for a long way. Will try and do a head dip for Nick this arvo.

If your mate didn't get a single good wave in twelve months, then he must've had a really good pho or two and hooked into some sweet almond milk lattes.

More like he couldn’t bare the reality of having to return home so cooked up a story to help him cope and keep face in front of his mates

Seen plenty of pommy heads hang low when it’s time to depart so it’s understandable

Take Nick for example. Surfs Hawaii each year so it’s not like he’s wave starved. And I’m sure he’d be flat out recalling a 12 month period ever in Sydney when he couldn’t get a good surf in

The welsh jealousy must really run deep

That’s the spirit iggy. Look, I’m sure he had a lovely time and everything but he was just a touch underwhelmed by your waves. Nothing to feel ashamed about

Underwhelmed because he was missing the quarter mile paddle out the back in freezing cold raging currents and 60 knot onshore winds?

Let’s kill this now. Wales isn’t a surfing destination anybody outside of Cwyaddldcwyddd would consider. But well done for having a crack

I’m sure GSTQ loves his Welsh waves. After all, this is the same bloke who chooses to run in mud.

Is that really a place or did you just go apeshit on the keyboard?

Nah, its derived from the album name Celwydd by Thud's favourite welsh singer Duck, Ifan Dafydd. She's not too shabby either:

Well Cranked I clicked that link and YouTube said something went wrong. I think all those welsh consonants fcuked the algorithms and it just became weird code.

I used a Welsh translator. I just typed in “onshore freezing closeout” and that’s what popped out.

Just kidding. I apeshitted it.

There’s some decent waves in Wales and a proper surf culture. But if ya mate couldn’t find a decent wave in Sydney for 12 months then take what he says with a pinch of salt, or use it to wind up some Realsurfers ;).
