Re: Where did you surf today ?

First warm day down here. 28 degrees with northerlies. Real summery feel. Worked this morning so had an arvo session. Thought crowds would be off the charts but strangely bugger all. Got a peak pretty much all to myself. Chest high and quite consistent. Still cold in the water so steamers are the go...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

RDO so went for the gentleman hour at 13th beachies. Summer-like down here. 29 degrees and very, very light offshore. Forgot how Spring can be. Air temps warm so you’re in boardies on land, but water still very cold. Was tossing up whether to chuck on my springy. Went with the steamer. Sweating putt...

Lol. I don’t remotely surf well enough to have stickers on my board. Already removed.
But dues to you BA. Pretty good board board for HP surfing
Don't think there'll be too much HP surfing but I reckon it should go alright. Looks pretty forgiving.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Yes Foamy. correct. 5 flights land from Sydney and Melbourne. So they arrive, and then take-off again. Should we count those twice? They arrive and then depart. Lol, yes. That’s how airports work. Arrivals and departures. You’re not counting them twice, they’re two different flights. So if 5 flight...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Interesting surf at Beacon. Only 4 out. Started off about waist high with really strong offshore. Within half an hour there were chest high sets. Power level definitely went up. Forgot Vicco can get new swell very quickly. Head high sets started appearing. Wasn’t feeling overly confident on my 5’11”...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

A guy is suing Urbnsurf after hitting the concrete and breaking his neck. Appears he’s going down the design flaw avenue. Presume this is to circumvent the fact he probably signed something before going in to deny them any culpability. Be an interesting case to follow. I understand there’s been plen...
