Jesus fcuken christ the post Christmas Sydney shit spell is awesome.

It tried to break itself this morning with a hesitant and feeble minded pulse from the sth, crossing up the 18" worth of easterly swell that's been trickling down from the Goldy for the past week.

Result, waves of a gutlessness no words can describe, so I won't.

Had a mate up from Bondi for new year and he was gobsmacked about the quality and lack of people compared to the Eastern Suburbs.
Do you have room for a couple of caravans in your backyard Jimmy?
Only if you can reverse park them.

I occasionally have to reverse a boat trailer up a steep undulating incline with a 90° turn and a kerb at the beginning. With automatic and low range it's a piece of cake. First try every time. A front towball would make it even easier.

Legit question...why are front towballs not a thing for tricky areas?

They are for savvy towers. But they're also kinda dodgy.

It was craptastic.

Because every fcuking bellend with a fourbie and a big boat now has a 12000lb winch they'll probably never use, right where the towball needs to go.

The best surf I had on the mid north coast was at Stanwell Park on the way home! 🤙

Can you please report to the Parking Thread.

A few shifting A Frames around this morning. Fun drops on a few before they hit the inside bank and smashed me into the sand. Good fun.
