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 ...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Stay away from the wavepark, kids! https://www.news.com.au/national/victoria/news/man-rushed-to-hospital-in-critical-condition-from-popular-wave-park/news-story/2da60214fa82f9410c45467faeb82e53 I could drive there in about an hour but still have zero interest in it. I’ve watched a stack of video of...

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.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Crappy phone photo. Oily glassy chest high peaks with only two other blokes. Classic crisp Victorian autumn day. Can’t complain.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

A reef at Torquay. Fun until 3 old blokes on SUP’s came out. Talk about boomer central. Every carpark in the area is full of blokes all 60 plus in brand new cars with an SUP, a mid-length or a ski. It’s obviously where all the boomers from Geelong and Melbourne have gone to die. Shouldn’t they be pl...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

It’s been pretty small and onshore lately buddy. Even considered going to the tub. Surfed my first reef break in ages over the weekend. Bit easier on the paddling than the beachies I’ve been surfing. Fitness is actually ok Steve. I’m really surprised. Maybe due to me staying pretty “land” fit. Dunno...

Two Mile needing about another 12-15ft of swell to get going.

Forgotten how much of a circus Torquay is at Easter. Total shit show. Place is full of surgically enhanced Melbourne soccer mums (hi Steve) and their downtrodden husbands cruising the town in their Audis and wandering the walking tracks and beaches in their designer active wear.

Probably one of my all-time favourite days of watching pro surfing.
