Were you that guy on the foamie who looked like a lizard with a ponytail?
Possible lizard but no ponytail. I was the guy who was carving :wink:

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Dreamy little runners if you nabbed one. Kind of wish I had brought my mal. Foamy* went well though.

Somewhere unlikely, as I remember being surprised when she said it, which means easy to forget.

Her accent was very neutral with just a tiny bit of something different. We exchanged email addresses.

She was well connected to the Bali surf community already.
How does she pronounce France?

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I’m thinking the old bulldoze all the sand into the gutters strategy has been in play. Really lame banks plus pissy small high tides to really set it off.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Had a look at the beaches. Bondi is one big closeout as expected. Maccas was throwing out some filthy barreling peaks for the committed thrill seekers and lid riders. Bronte solid and about 50 guys on the reef.

That’s sad, Cranky. You’ve had a real connection there for a very long time.

That’s rough. Guy I went to school with died in later life from an aneurysm while snorkeling in Pottsville Creek.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Had abash this morning. Hard to get motivated but it was nice to get wet. Heavier crowd for the weekend and pretty rippy. Got a few and two that were good. Last one shared with a kook who took off right next to me and didn’t get off. Starfish pose while moving his torso back and forth trying to turn...

Buy any sunglasses while you were there Yuke?
No, which could have been a glaring oversight.

Those sure are nice boats. And I'm partial to a multihull. We were on a J42 https://www.jboats.com/j42-performance Nice boat, easily sailable with 2. Nice boats.

I think he was comparing himself to Steve which he loves to do.
Irony apparently needs italics.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Pretty good day of driving down at 9:45 with plenty of parks. Then taking the foamy out up at Kiddies Corner and catching plenty of dribblers through the bucket hat brigade and Bondi Legionaries*
* People who wear legionnaires hats in the surf.
No skin off from walking on the sand to the showers.

Crime watch in the local Beast documents a female French backpacker who had her new foamy stolen from the Carpark at South Maroubra after she left it on the grass while she had a shower and chatted to friends who were having a bbq
