Re: Where did you surf today ?

Dragged myself down for a small sess at collaroy out of the wind. The reefers were having a comp so got to catch up with a few of the guys which was nice. Should rejoin and get down there for a bit of fun when I can

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I tentatively ventured out for a surf today. First real exercise in 3 weeks due to covid and first surf in months for many reasons. Very low expectations re my fitness and timing, but i was pleasantly surprised. I think the yoga I'd been doing before I was sick really paid off. Will definitely keep ...

Re: Nth NSW sharks. Can they p!ss off already?

Yeah, doing laps between the heads I think. Makes me think, I pretty much grew up in the ocean and sharks weren't ever a second thought. Now? Bit different

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Went down to my nemesis today, powderpuff point. Tried a different strategy and sat about halfway out and picked off plenty of wider ones.

Bit of swell today too Ricky. Good on you
Yeah, but I deliberately took the soft option :-D-: after so long out of the water it was just what I needed

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Finally got my first post lockdown surf in. It was crowded as expected but could have been worse. I managed to find a little uncrowded peak at sth Narra. As anticipated my timing was well off but paddling and getting around was ok.

Felt great but lost interest after an hr. Good to be back

What made you lose faith in your GP?
Just a few things I've gone to him about and hasn't really taken interest. Old and set in his ways I guess. To be fair hes indulged me other times. He also has a shit list of specialists he refers you to

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I went out for the first time in a while this morning. Had a scary experience. I got caught inside and even though it was fairly small it was very consistent and I took ages to get out of there. Felt really sick and out of sorts for a while after. Wondered if I was having a heart attack. Lack of su...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I ignored crabmeats advice and went for a surf at maroubra since the nbs are off limits. My God it was dire. I think a paddle would be a better description. Doubt I'll bother again for a while

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Serious question Nick - with all you've done, surfed and achieved would you really charge deadman's at (almost) 61? I appreciate the insane adrenaline rush, but fcuk some of those wipeouts look hideous. Surely that detracts from it? Or is that just part of the thrill? Even in my young days I had rea...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Gordons Bay surfer found alive In fact he got out and went home, didn't know there was a search on, called the cops next day (today). People are always calling the police because they think the person is in trouble. I think old mate Marcus used to complain about this a bit up at Newcastle on a big ...
