Ok :lol:. I'd say that wave would have been nigh on impossible to make without holding the rail the whole time.
Nah, piece of piss.

He may not have made the wave but he would have retained his dignity.

Easily top 3 of the most laughable horrendous hunks of shit to ever grace The Gumtree.

I’m unsure of whether it’s a legit advert or a prank.

I was actually thinking it looks like about what I would produce if I tried to shape a balsa board. Thought about it a few times and decided not to. The shaper obviously had more misguided self confidence.

I literally saw a guy do a handstand on a longboard yesterday. Never seen that before.

If it is, I want nooooo part in it. I've never surfed this spot, as it looks very bloody heavy. Plenty of crew around here do though.

Always amazing how good surfers make heavy waves look so inviting.

gonna be special south of around Pt Macquarie this Sunday and early Mon I think.

Wind gonna gear itself up from the NE 200k offshore, blow down 3-5' of variable NE swell on to literally 1000 beautifully shaped north end sandbars, with a W wind on the coast.

hello ten channel.

Does that include us Nick?

Planning on my first surf in almost 5 months. Some nice NE swell would be perfect to spread out the crowd on the NB’s.

Nah, don't worry about it. It will probably be poop.
