Re: that wetsuit discussion...

A mate of mine who works as a lab assistant told me to wash the wetsuit thoroughly after every use if possible years ago. I try to do that and it keeps the suit a lot more supple and they seem to last longer. Zippers work better too. Actually saw two people standing in plastic buckets to get out of ...

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

Who washes their wetsuits?
I always put the hose on mine in the board bag.
Used to work with a woman who reckoned she put her two sons wetsuits through the wash.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Yet another charming day surfing at Bondi. Actually sat on a little bank on my own for most of the surf with occasional fast little peelers and a cranky looking old cnut giving stink eye to any learner that dared encroach on his turf.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Wasn’t going to worry. Tiny dribbles of swell. Beautiful conditions and got a few trimmers on a warm sunny winters day. Pretty great really.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Wasn’t going to get motivated for a surf today. Lounged around the house. Drove down for a gander about 12:00. Decided the light onshore was going to get worse….but decided..”fcuk it” and rolled on down. Went out. Wind swung a bit north and cleaned up the waves. Caught a few and snared an absolute c...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Lining up for a savage roundhouse cutback there Trev.
Surf was fun yesterday if a bit cold when you got out.
Water is still nice and warm.
Hatchie is always a bit tense GST. It’s all that driving he does.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I'll come too, Cranked and Wyre! Twenty years since I was there last. Would love to surf Uluwatu again. See you in the warung on the cliff! The one with the swimming pool or one of the myriad other ones that dot the landscape these days. Lucky Al would be in for quite a shock if he hasn’t seen the ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

My last surf at Ulus was pretty crap. I’ve only surfed it about four times since 1989. Watching SOB I established that every other time I surfed it it happened to be breaking from that section which has a fairly mellow take off before hitting the racetrack section. Last time it was breaking further ...

So I believe Richard Harvey is credited with being the first person to surf Padang when he got washed down there on a big day.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

So much for the heavy rain, large dangerous surf and freezing temps. A bit cool. Glorious day. Surf flat with 6 learners out on foamies. A couple of swimmers in the water.

Had a bit of a bash. A bit crowded but nothing like yesterday. I counted twenty guys on a non existent peak.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

1969 was the year I started surfing so very appropriate.
