I'd get a 6'1" Haz short and a 5'10" Haz fish.

Reckon it’s worth taking an inch off the fish.
I wouldn’t want mine any longer.

And the short surfs like it’s longer too with the straight section in the mid part of the outline.

I am still tempted by this as a step up.
Looks so good but when you’re watching Parko and Jai G it might be a little deceiving.

I'd need to get loofy's take to confirm that. He's got a more intimate, local knowledge of the place.

Pumping. I feel like I have been beaten up, legs pulled this way and that, fat lip, some sick waves though.

You’re meant to pull under the lip not into it.

Yep, same bank as yesterday but with a little less tide so better.

Comfortable to call it 6 foot easy, well overhead, maybe double on the sets and the banks holding it easily.

Normally northern beaches is crap on a south swell but between the rain causing all the lagoons to flood and the strong weekend swell, the banks are in primo condition.

Best photos I saw from yesterday #10 & #6

Had a surf at one of my favorite novelty waves this morning. When I was paddling out I noticed a slab of the rock shelf was getting exposed before the end of the wave broke on the inside. Made a mental note to be careful if I caught a long one. Got a few. Then got the longest wave and thought I better tack right at the end to avoid the rock platform. Then the wave sucked out exposing the rock platform and I landed flat on my back on top of it. :lol:
