Re: Fish

Okay, the trend to long fish has rewritten the rule book on fish…..or has it?
Any thoughts?

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I found the Nias Comp pretty unwatchable after enjoying a few of the perfect little barrels. Only so much difference between waves.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Hit the Bra. Tiny. Comp on. There was a nice little bank that was packed with micro grommets and a variety of learners. Managed to get about five waves fairly quickly. The last being the only memorable larger one. Decided to call it a day after that. Water was warm.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Easterly swell hitting the bank just north of the Pav really nicely.
I think I got the longest nose ride on a left I’ve ever had there.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Did something similar at Freshwater once. First light, massive swell but easy out in the rip channel along the south headland. Got out the back, still alone and realised I shouldn't be there. Managed to snag a smaller one by paddling like mad between sets, dodged the rocks, made the beach and went ...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Next door neighbours planted a bay laurel they had in a pot when they sold up 10 or 15 years ago. It’s now three stories high. Suckers everywhere. Covered in scale. The suckers are a constant chore. Then again they’ve got the descendants of the banana stools I planted and hacked out in our yard.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I grew up with two in the front yard and another five in the school yard next door. All cut back to ground level twice. The first time they all regrew around the lopping. Second time they coated the stumps with creosote. Finally killed them. Water in the water tanks used to be purple from the berrie...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Pumping. took out the 6'6"and glad I did, the sets had plenty of water in them and were breaking hard into the offshore wind. The quad was throwing me out of the bottom turns with way more speed than I was getting on the mid-length so my turn placement and timing was a bit second hand. Still threw ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Went back down to Bronte for a swim. The incoming tide had moved the take off further inside and across from this morning. Only two guys having a crack but they got a few bombs. Big tow ins at South Coogee as well this morning. Great looking swell.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Big at Bronte. Breaking way, way out with about 6 guys sitting there. Didn’t see anyone catch a wave. Both inside and outside Bombies at South Coogee we’re working. Guy on a foil caught a fcuking monster out the back with a tow in. Ended up getting smashed. Earlier he had ridden the swell right arou...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

My second time I surfed Lennox I had to come in after dark. My mate was waving his board around on the shore to show me where to come in. Fcuk that.
