This you Womble?

I did a fair bit of that on my first surf when I didn't think about the fact I had warm water wax on.

Re: Bribie Island Breakthrough.

That's the tidal prism stuff we were talking about Trev.
And the water being lazy.

I expect the tides to get a bit messy for a while, as the main channel will drain more quickly now so the lagged outflow from the canals will be easier.

Boo's back!
I'm back. But now that I'm in colder water I am loving my chest zip.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I've had a couple of really fun, really kooky surfs in the last couple of days. Regaining and retraining my atrophied skills.

3-5ft lefts up to 150m long, rocky reef platforms covered with some sand from a river mouth, sort of like a mirror image in shape of Trev's local, but it holds up to 15ft.

Re: Bribie Island Breakthrough.

Camping up the north end before the bogans cottoned on was epic.

Sounds like loof wants to camp up the north end.

Heard anything about Barramundi in the Passage Boo?
Few reports down at the south end from blokes chasing flatties.

I'll take a look Trev, seen some of their pics before.

Re: Bribie Island Breakthrough.

Trev you're right, the sand will just roll backwards and eventually join up on the landward side.

Re: Bribie Island Breakthrough.

Those Golden Beach numpties should be ignored.

The mouth moving further south reduces the current velocity along that eroding stretch.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

What's the main differences Boo? Bear in mind I moved from a cow paddock in central Maryland to the research center of the world... Lot more Chinese people and Hispanics, not as many Indian or black people. Better food in general. See above. People in the north east are more friendly. When I first ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Local public school Jimmy. The homelessness is confronting. And I'd agree with most of the other points, Thud. I'd have to go to San Diego to do a comparison with 2006-7 when I lived there last. The bay area is nothing like Maryland, that's for sure. Except for the rich people in ugly houses and the...

Are you in California now Boo?

Santa Cruz area?
Yep. Living in San Mateo county but working in Santa Cruz. Pick a break on the way down.

Been here about a month, but had to go to Sweden for 2 weeks of that.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I went in the ocean today with a surfboard and I stood up 3 times, but it would be generous to describe what I did as surfing. Still getting the the lay of the land and chose poorly, a break that looked good from the road but was actually pretty lumpy. First surf in a steamer in about 10 years and t...
