Re: Just general surfing stuff

It was a bit like a switch was thrown. I'd been riding mals a lot and my reflexes were sort of deadened, suddenly the whole muscle and spatial memory was triggered in an instant! Like we're really not riding a mal, we can do this, and that, and this as well!!!. Let's get down, jam a rail and start s...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Whoo, fcuking, hoo! I'm back surfing again! I've been waiting for that session when everything falls back together again and I got it this morning. Surf report detail indicated 10am would be the best time to hit it (tide, wind and swell all wrong earlier). So that's when I hit it... no-one else out!...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

That scene at the Bommie a few days ago was magnificent, it was a 17/18s swell, near 4,000kJ, 15' plus as it jacked up, 4 or 5 waves in the set, with 6 surfers at the bottom, chucking their boards and waiting for the guillotine to drop, me the only person watching from the cliff top.

Surfer middle, up two thirds:

Tempted, it's the nearest break to home, but a bit of a hike to get there. Just one surfer out on the whole stretch

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I'd dig some shots of your surroundings Cranky, every day stuff, just some simple Bukit livin if you please. Well this one's down in Kuta, it's the famous Uns hotel, great 50s decor in the rooms, been there forever, now an oasis in the madness. My mate is staying there, $8/night, only three takers ...

I've surfed twice a day so far, but today is too lacklustre to bother.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I don't have a decent camera with me, just a phone, and all phone surf pics look pretty bad.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

General surf skills are fairly low after surfing fcuk all for 3 years, and when I did surf it was on a mal. Paddling is OK after swimming a fair bit. I'm getting waves but not getting up straight into a good surf stance. Still, have already got more and way better waves (a few overhead and hollow) t...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Quite good surf all week: shoulder to head high, occasional bigger sets, wind offshore 90% of the time, sun shining, half a dozen to a rare dozen on the takeoff zones, often just a few. Surf times constrained by the mega high tides, and cruel, long, reef walkouts on the lows. Much better to come as ...

Re: Forum, contact or site for C. American travel n real estate?

A friend lived on an island not far from Puerto Escondido for about 5 years and loved it.

I'll text him for more details. He probably won't mind a little exposure as he's been in Bali for the last 5 years or more.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Yeah I assumed something like that but still couldn't get a handle on what exactly was what. I actually like the confusion in my visual processing.
