Re: Where did you surf today ?

Dunny bowl bank sorta starting to work again after all these years. Mix of receding south groundswell with some north east windswell offering up some decent peaks

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

*nearly paid off But, unless i move to vic the wetsuit will deffo be hanging in the wardrobe the whole time. The el cheapo will probably be ok for a quick EOY dash. Aside, when it’s time to get serious on quality, what are decent wetties to look for? Backzip pls. It’s been 15 plus years since I’ve l...

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

Might go check it anyway. I’m planning on only taking the 6’10 mid, it’ll handle

For $70 no biggie, it’ll only sit in the wardrobe rest of the year up here

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Thomnos wouldn’t have liked the underlying south groundswell much i gather.

How was the farm? That middle peak would’ve been the tits depending on what time/tide you hit it.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Some absolute Screamers this morning! Where’d you end up Hatchy? South-mid Maroubra. Picked off plenty of sets, constant 4-5 with some solid 6 footers hitting the middle bank. Lots of driving off the high line to make the first sections, then turns and connecting all the way through to the beach. S...

South-mid Maroubra. A bit wind affected but still fun and overhead. The new 6”10 freeflight mid can really put the sprints on! Fast board

The farm can hold 8 foot of south groundswell with great shape.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

It was indeed the only place in the gong today with a wave. The outside was a little washy but the inside had form. Very nearly went out, instead head further south for some reef action south of shell harbour. A bit jumbled but still plenty fun and consistent with some size and punch
