Re: Where did you surf today ?

Same at Manly but seems to have now dropped off - crowded and a few weekend warriors were struggling with the swell. A few waves went begging for a good surfer.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

20 types of wave parks - the Yeppoon one does look better on the wave count per hour.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Spent Xmas once at Kho Samui and every morning had a body surf on a lovely little sandbank - everyone else was still in bed with hangovers. Was living/working in HK at the time so any wave was a godsend.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Different view to buddy's from Steve (?) over on Swellnet:

"man, they would have been so skunked at Lennox.
hasn't been a surf day all waiting period so far. end to end onshore and chocolate brown floodwaters."

Re: Where did you surf today ?

NB's at lunchtime and a few sneaky ones in there - good fun. Plus big enough to run the comp at Newcastle - Swellnet offers uninterrupted coverage.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

So the family friend bookkeeper steals $1.5 million off Tyler Wright - you do wonder a bit who was looking at what was going on considering she is managed by Nick Fordham.
