Lunchtime flatness - the odd long lined 1ft set rolling in
Was similar at Bondage...... was bigger during my morning low tide grovel ....took the +0.95 (MkIII)'s shark biscuit for a splash.
I didn’t surf this morning - my usual Wednesday morning mates gave a variety of poor excuses (uni exams, work, ... what is the world coming to!) and then I couldn’t get myself frothing enough to bother.
Will give it a go tomorrow probably, but I currently have my expectations set to a grovel at North Av or then if even that fails me an early coffee at Zubi at Bilgola. Taking a glass-half-full view, it’ll likely be better than skiing in the r**n tomorrow anyway.
Try Whale for something different
Wouldn't expect anything over 1ft, a new S groundswell should show sets late though..
Sadly, for these type of slimebags a run in with the cops doesn't stop them (no respect for anyone/anything).
I feel it may require some good ol senior boardriders old school initiative. Time to organise the troops.
Next swell, capture the dirtbags, tie em up, stick em in the back of a ute, drive em to nearby mates farm and spray em with every available living creatures faeces, let em sit and roll in it for a hour or so, (so it really leaches into the paws of their skin), drive em back (in ute), stick em in their cars unwashed and send em.
Sometimes you just gotta be mean to cut through.
Local police, what local police?
Sadly would not cut it with Bra Boys....... likely to come back twice as hard..... the surfing equivalent to outlaw MC gangs. The only thing to resolve it would be to lock them all up and nuke Maroubra Beach. The suburb is a breeding ground for scum.
The moon always grabs me, I got this image yesterday evening as the sun set..
Coming home yesterday !!!!!
Still a bit over the shop today ....Tomorrow should deliver around Canggu !!!!!!
We'll send you down this bloke, seems to be doing sweet FA these days.
yeah what ever happened to a good old tradesman-like vb stubbie and cougar bourbon can
they park their cars and jet skis at an equally remote quasi boat-ramp / beach access set-up at the nearest village.
and a long way from any servos with air , in case of un-expected phlat tyres that happens in the country from time to time...…
where the wave itself is next bay around and good 20 minutes or so by water / 1 hour by car.
actual tho the mofos that leave the rubbish and shit on the yards don't go in by water so gotta catch them red-handed.
reality will be a case of the rangers quietly observing and recording from one of the back yards etc.
I am sure tho plans are a foot on several levels with this.
word will get around like wild-fire around here.
Put it together, serious serious piece of equipment, i'll be wearing a helmet when i try it out, today would have been perfect if the back was ready, low tide spilling waves on the back bank rolling fat in to the gutter
Woohoo a sneaky south swell upgrade for this Sunday and Monday. Not much but charts have gone from looking lake like to at least surfable.
Screen grab from the video you posted on Monday...
All good and well calling out said people on Social Media, but if none of the South Coast boys know who's rego this is lodge an EPA Report against them. I've done it plenty of times.
I’ll take 1’ for a mid-week early. It’s pretty south so North Av is going to be my best bet and if it is that small and grovelly at least it won’t be crowded. I do best at North Av when it is either too small for everyone but the grommets or too big for the retired mal riders. In between it is hectic most daylight hours and the NBSS (or yes Whaley too) is very much preferable.
I will probably take out the Kiddies’ Corner Specialist Board (since our beginner has uni exams this week and she won’t be needing it) and splash about with the grommets.
but you gotta catch them littering.
his car rego pretty clear too.
Like I said I don't anticipate the guys on the water making the mess that got called out, more so the spectators and land photogs.
but having said that nothing to stop them tossing their water bottles etec etc in the water.
edit : and I too often dob em in throwing ciggy butts out the car window , and the other evil the maccas bags n cups....
I don't think it's very easy. I watched these blokes for about 1/2 an hour each time, and I reckon they spent 5 minutes actually foiling. Good luck!!
Mate Bought the foil from alibaba and installed the box on the old retro twin fin that had lost its zing. We started behind the boat as figured it would be safer and after about 10 mins could fly the thing. We tended to fly it too high as it felt awesome being 600mm up in the air!! Tried in the surf and it was ridiculously hard and way more chance of a fin chop
We’re thinking more practice behind the boat to get the balance right as way less variables.
Got some hilarious footage from our first few runs though.
Interested to see how you go
The lack of snow has me watching the surf report again....
My brother has a wake-surf boat though is 1000km away from me, there's a fair chance i'll end up spending sometime behind his boat. I had my own wind surfer when i was 5yrs old and have been on boards in one form or another most days since then
Not a heap of swell but good winds for the surf coast this weekend. Should be a good 3-4ft clean wave. Go searching and find a bank or reef for fun one.
To small for Westernport
Not quite in the same boat as mines in the front yard but also been on various boards throughout the years but we’re both closer to 50 than 40 so balance not as sharp.
Found that small foot movements front to back made the foil more stable or loose but could be because the setup is pretty much experimental. Be good to get your feedback on the purpose built stick as we’ve probably only spent 2 hours max on this setup
The drive down to the Surf coast from the NE suburbs of Melb. is hideous. Westernport is closer and less stressful. Small clean waves suit this learner better.
Been replaced with the fanciest of 'craft beers' and 'gentleman jack'
At least with a foil board up north around @parkmonkey way you'd have a distinct height advantage to be able to see any noah's that were lurking
I had a grovel at Lake Avalon (picture below from afterwards) on the Kiddies’ Corner Specialist Board. I had to wait a while for the tide to drop enough that it actually broke and even then it was a bit of a wait between waves. Beautiful morning though.
Unsurprisingly I had it to myself other than for a while shared with a nice young lady from NW Tasmania who has been travelling/living in a van and surfing up the coast for the last couple of months.
Looks great for my mid-length. You've done better than me today, I'm keeping an eye on a possible small S pulse this arvo.
Interesting that you met a girl from NW Tassie in the water Ted! I also met a nice young blonde haired Tassie lass in the water at Ulladulla back in April doing exactly the same thing, would be hilarious if it was the same one!
Nothing happening at Curly?
Much flatness observed on this morning's Tour de Eastern Suburbs....... strangely about a dozen bods grovelling in the low tide mush at Maroubra.
Good day to take the doggies for a walk
I would imagine Bondage would have a small peeler in these conditions.....
Bondage looked smaller than yesterday on the Swellnet cam so opted to increase leg fitness for upcoming ski tours instead.
same deal down this way fwiw
Nah NE windswell.
Likely the same girl I'd reckon: early 20's-ish, slim and blonde, driving a white camper van with a "Keep Tassie Wild" or similar sticker on the back window. Pretty good surfer too from what you could tell given the slow/weak conditions this morning. She's been on the road through Victoria then up through the NSW south coast for the last couple of months and just reached Sydney. Has no particular plans other than to keep surfing and driving. She's nice and I hope it continues to go well for her. On the off chance someone else in the thread sees her on her travels, make sure to have a chat and say Hi from me too.
Haha no way I reckon it was her from the sounds of that description hey!
Ditto what @Ted Harper says. Tell her the guy from the NBSS and the guy who surfed with her in the 'Dulla say G'day
Cummon guys more details needed, insta name etc, haha, not stalky at all ;p
So much for waves around Canggu today ....super windy early , maybe tomorrow ?
reminds me I had a juicey van , with cutest couple of tanned euro girls , pig tails, the whole show pulled up out front of my joint.
bikinis hanging in the side windows .... gulp.
asking me directions back to the highway as often the case .
I could hardly talk
Didn't want to seem too stalker-ish when talking to her in the water Craig so kept it pretty low key
I can't see any big change in wind speeds and direction till Sunday morning.
What is she likes the nudie surf thing and gets up here and goes over to A bay?
Could be awkward if I bump into a blond with board under arm in the nude walking up the beach and I ask her if she's from Tassie!!
A certain swell magnet stretch of beach nth of Milton was very good yesterday, nice 2ft lefts and rights up and down the beach, lots of banks and this morning was still enough size in the middle of the beach for some longboard cruising.
I'm headed the other way tomorrow arvo.
Have site meeting at Longbeach sat morning so going to chance my arm might be something to play on out the caves .
Follow by few quiet ones ( break my dry spell in style back at spiritual home) and o/niter at Southy.
You should head down to North Av with Ted see if you can locate her again
might do a quick scout round here just in case.
I surfed with her out at Rennies I think it was, on my last day down south. If you find my post from back in April you'll see my comments about meeting the 'friendly Tassie girl' in the water
