All the times I've spent around Maggie River I've surfed every day

And oh, Surf Forecast doesn't know that the offshore reef exists so cannot factor in the blocking and destruction of the swell.

I caught a light plane to surf Rotto a few times in the 90s and saw how it turned a perfect 12' swell into 4' slop.

I know, that's why it's going there.

We have different approaches to surfing I guess.
I (clearly) don't need to go every day.
But for mine, the variability of the conditions and the challenge in figuring it out better than the mob is a key part of the appeal. I'd skateboard if I wanted it to always be the same.
I’m with you Poo. For me, it’s not about getting perfection day after day. It’s about hunting the best wave on offer given the conditions. Sometimes I get it right, most of the time I don’t. But I always thought that’s what makes the chase exciting.

Look at the posts from Channels about his trip to Noosa and the amazing and rare conditions he lucked into. He'll remember those sessions for years, and probably buy another surfboard that's woefully mismatched to the Sydney conditions he normally encounters.
They are putting in a reef because the swell is blocked?

I enjoy every good wave I get, the more the merrier! Too many is never enough

I’m on holidays this week and I’ve decided to something weird tomorrow.
Rather than get up for the early. I’m gonna sleep in and have a good breakfast. Then I’m gonna drive to Cooly and get a park and then I’m gonna walk to Rainbow and park myself under a tree near where Greeny starts.
I’ll watch the surf and paddle out when I want. That little stretch at Rainbow turns on ridiculously at times.
I’m gonna take two boards and a day pack with water etc. and I’ll go around to get some hot chips when I’m hungry.
I can’t fucking wait.

Definitely a mature approach, Jimbo. A few years ago I had been to a reunion then visited friends at Nimbin. Had lunch at Clark’s which cost a fortune. Pulled into the Greenmount Carpark the next day and had the day to kill. Spent the day surfing and bought a Sanger from 7/11 for $5. Fcuking great.

Wouldn’t bother with cooly.
Swell has dropped a fair bit.

Just past. But a very high tide.

Kinda of a surf on the NBs but the banks have been battered by the recent big swells plus the school holiday crowds.

Well my self-imposed break until after school holidays has just become a government-imposed break, after copping a dirty rat test. Couldn't have come at a better time

I surfed centreside at first light till after the Ewing baker heat. Went back out after the fanning Robson heat for a couple hours.
I think the difficulty of road access kept the crowd down.
And the pros stuck to winki and the Southside beachy.
I had so much fun in good quality waves.
Wore a 4/3 as that’s all I had but I was way too hot and restricts the paddling.
