Re: post your modern day sickness

So many bargains on the 2nd hand market at the mo. Picked this up, completely mint condition for $250, no haggle. Probably a tiny bit big but couldn’t pass it up at the price. Not sure if it’s a twin+1 or thruster. https://i.imgur.com/G3AGam8.jpg https://i.imgur.com/RoU166D.jpg https://i.imgur.com/...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Chest-high, slight onshore waves at a left reef. Rode my mid-length. Pretty fun until a couple of SUP’s arrived. Really enjoying surfing reefs again.

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

Hey Florid. Not sure about the warmth. But I’ve had a few O’Neill suits and I’m a medium. They were one of the better fitting suits I’ve owned.

I don’t think Australia has a big enough population to make Surf Ranchs profitable.
Are you kidding? The Melbourne pool is constantly booked out. Day and night. Reckon they’d be doing fine.

I’m probably old school, but I love watching the pros on bigger boards. Much cleaner lines drawn.

Probably a little cold.
Wouldn’t bother them. They just sit in the chalet all day anyway. It’s all about telling people you’re at the snow.

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 ...

Sorry
Keep it coming Cranked. I’m living vicariously through you. Down here it’s an apparent temp of 4 degrees in the middle of the day and 30 knot southerlies. On the plus side, I could get pretty much any break to myself if I wanted.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

It's only 7 degrees on the coast here at the moment. And with a howling wind, the apparent temp is probably more like 2. Getting an outdoor job just as winter was starting probably wasn't my smartest move.

Re: Skin Cancer

Had my annual check up today. Couple of "barnacles" (solar keratosis). Nothing to worry about Giveny history growing up on the Goldie and having plenty of freckles I'm amazed how little problem I've had over the years. Interesting thing though. I always prefer to surf early morning. Like from fist ...

So good.
Best time of year. Usually plenty of swell. All day offshores. And waters still warm enough (just) for a 3x2 and no booties.
