LuckyAl I saw Owen Wright out there once on a freezing, big and windy day. He made it look like a little 2 foot beachie, absolutely ripped the shit out of it.

He was like, Wah-POW!

i was out at Snapper close to Jack Freestone throwing some big airs on an overhead day. The visual was something I’d become used to from clips, but I was surprised by the loudness of the noise as he blasted off the lip. The sound was thrilling.

Thoughts on this fella's surfing? Around 11mins his first wave at J Bay is a cracker. No TC but pretty damn good. I'm not too familiar with him.

Yeh great wave and so well surfed but I still would have preferred another 6 inches on the board.

I'm actually quite enjoying the Narra Classic. Some good surfing going down in conditions we can all relate to!

missed it completely today. might watch a few highlights with an evening beer and weep. had been planning to spend the upcoming week (second week of school break) in phuket, getting a couple of surfs in, but a covid19 outbreak and associated inter-province travel restrictions have put paid to that. drats! boohoo...

There’s surf on Phuket? I remember having some pretty good body surfing sessions over the other side on Kho Samui.

Spent Xmas once at Kho Samui and every morning had a body surf on a lovely little sandbank - everyone else was still in bed with hangovers. Was living/working in HK at the time so any wave was a godsend.

Nice fun waves.
But as usual the nose riding leaves me cold.
I love turning a board and staying close to the slot.
People riding obviously purpose built nose riders, jumping to their feet and walking straight to the nose just don't grab me.
Waste of a good wave.
