Save your arms for later this week
I am going to surf at Westernport tomorrow. It may be my last paddle until Spring. There is proper snow coming and I will be XC skiing like a fiend henceforth. I will post some photos .
Nice 2-3 ft waves out corri yesterday @FourSquare04
Absolute flog dropped in on me, I flicked my board at him. And it actually cut his chin open.
Wouldn't of done it if knew that was going to happen, but the prick deserved it.
Thought he was gonna beat me up on the beach. He would've smoked me too
In other news this is one song off my bands first EP,
Give the songs a spin if you like classic aussie punk rock
Will post in the music thread
It's been a while since I flicked out at someone, but when they deserve it they deserve it (IMHO).
I didn't surf this morning. Had an errand to run which mucked up my usual routine, and I was thinking about a high tide wave about now but when I looked at the cameras (and also got a phonecall from a mate who was standing there checking it) it's not breaking in a fun way at the NBSS. Leave it for tomorrow.
I just push them off their board or grab their leg rope to trip them up or if its small grab their rail to push them off the wave, i even hip n shouldered a French guy who dropped in on my mate then dropped in on me but haven’t had to do any of the mentioned things for quiet a few years now. Long boarding the pass I’ve grabbed the nose of peoples boards while they are trying to paddle in and pushed them back off the wave
I could’ve easily pumped my way around him. I was in the perfect spot for the wave.
I was just spur of the moment thing
Be careful with your actions, this was an altercation unlike flicking your board which you did bailing out to avoid a collision caused by the other surfer
Like this at about 1.10. Very subtle.
Have dropped the coin on a 4/3 Dawn Patrol chest zip
First ever 4/3 despite my Vic roots, getting old, feeling the cold.
Today at 2nd Reef the water was very cold and the surf was tiny and marginal.
First I went to Pt. Leo and it was underwhelming with a cross shore breeze . I drove to Flinders and conditions were crap. I went to the Pines and the computer said "no".
So I went back to Crunchy Pt. I caught two waves but the reef was too close to me for to my liking.
I went over to 2n d reef . The tide was coming in. I paddled out. There were only 3 other surfers out there.
I caught one wave . I saw a rainbow , paddled some more in the on again off again showers. Eventually it was becoming too cold in the water (13.5 C. ) and I paddled back to shore and went home.
I forgot to take my camera .
I will most likely go for another paddle again after the ski season is over.
JJss have gone to shit, with ya.
Done the push / shove many a time on the points. The flick at a drop in was stopped by oneself over 20 years ago. Not that cool Wonkey.....better to remove that method and use selective language with reinforcement from friends in the lineup IMO.
oh I know that feeling.
but man it is a no can do.
as much as they seriously deserve it....
I grab their leggy.
they fall flat on their face.
if they wherent in the wrong place doing the wrong thing their life would be much less embarassment.
I’ve had the occasional low life grab my leggie when I was on the inside at Tea Tree .....
I did ride flat bicky over a booger at T Tree tho.
paddling up the line...
I snapped out the lip un-sighted and landed 100% straight down over his back.
nasty but his own fault.
he was screaming and I just said to him don't paddle up the line...
not rocket science . same as drop ins.
Some people just don’t have patience, one or two inside and not prepared to wait any longer. Humans!
common obs from down south.
we've lost the line up.
respect has gone.
our crew are shattered so many blow ins , clutter , disrespect....
time to move on perhaps.
shame Casey Station doesn't have a shacking right hander .
Yep, i came to similar conclusion up here many years ago. But coming from the city of Sydney where I had to drive to the beach, I think we are still far better off holistically. What our kids think is another story.
think our kids are more conditioned to it.
the gurl happily paddle out today and take on the masses at Golfy.
25 or so plus in the water ( yes a dream at Noosa even in the dark )
us lucky lucky olde carnts remember the daze of olde , we had it all to ourselves.
The NBSS was quite ok this morning if you picked the right ones. When I started watching in the dark (around 6:20) there were normal 2-3' sets and occasional 4-5' ones, then the bigger sets started coming through more frequently after I paddled out about 6:45. A fair bit of water movement and wonkiness on the takeoffs but (again if you lucked into the right ones) some of them turned into pretty good waves.
In hoarding news (smile), if you use Mr Zogs green wax in winter and your shop has sold out already, there won't be any more in stock until September.
I have been using FAR KING cold water/ cool water wax. The new INFINITY 1.5 mm wet suit gloves for 13 degree C. water are great.
Yeah I've been on the Far King cool this winter, happy, have the cold blend up my sleeve
South coast surf very good this morning at my local 4/5ft ese swell, heaps of surfers around but. Saturdays are getting busier and busier in the water, even in winter, seems very similar to Perisher on Saturday mornings.
Surf a lot more normal today, clean 3-4ft with a lot less people out, I'd say its very good everywhere so the crowds have spread out. Waters getting cold, but the suns out, so it's been an awesome morning surfing.
The Northern Beaches Secret Spot was much smaller today, 2-3’ on the sets only. Mostly atomic closeouts into 6” of water - a couple of my friends had an hour or so of that without breaking anything, but the rest of us had a mellow grovel in 1’ waves down at Kiddies’ Corner. I got 20 or so but nothing particularly memorable. Nice chat between waves though with sone people I have either not seen for a while or when we have been out recently it has been a bit good or hectic to actually talk much.
I dropped down to RipCurl at NN afterwards (to swap the beanie I bought for my wife yesterday for a different version - sigh) and had a good chat with Damien. He said NN was all-time yesterday, about 6’ on the sets and generally epic. Not a patch on that today apparently (I didn’t go and look - the carpark was full - but he said he hadn’t bothered surfing), but word must have got out from yesterday as there were people parked and suiting-up to paddle out all the way back at his shop - 2 blocks back from the beach - when I was there. Only 24 hours or so too late
I am undecided for tomorrow. It’s supposed to drop off further I think. I was a definite no an hour or so ago but a flurry of messages between my friends just now looks like they are all keen for an early.
I reckon it will be surfable most of this week Ted. Nice low hanging around NZ South island for the next few days, recent chart runs not quite as good as a few days back but there will be waves.
Mate it’s ALWAYS surfable, you just need to have suitably low lower-bound on what you are prepared to paddle out in
Hmmm, I’m leaning more towards a yes for a surf tomorrow then (unless of course - against all probability - I can manage today to get a season pass slot to ski tomorrow in Perisher). As well documented in this thread I can resist anything _except_ temptation
2-4 foot at the Bra today. Not terrible but just couldn’t pick ‘em today
Renewed pulse of 2-3ft SE groundswell arriving on Tuesday, sounds like a good day to get out. No kids weekend sports is making surfing a lot busier than normal, different world now.
3ft at Sunshine today, but sloppy with a UK kinda drizzle / showers all day. Slight S/SW wind all day trying to clean it up but no cigar. Would have been a few down near Coolum and further south around Moffatts. Young bloke got the OK from the physio to start surfing again after ankle surgery / months of rehab and he finished his Uni degree on Friday...............big / great week for him.
Bondi was betterer ................
Weekends have been crazy since covid, I tend to get out early on weekends and then hibernate.A couple of shots after the wind went cross onshore.
I got whistled at by Michael Peterson one day at Greenmount for dropping in , I swear there was no one on this wave then I hear this whistle and look back to see MP tucked in under the curl almost invisible , left him to it, he did a better job of the wave than I ever could
@W0nkey D0nkey was that you and your mate out Bello wedge yesterday arvie? Got a couple of small ones, shame it wasn't a bit bigger actually as it would have been alright
nahhh, was at the snow.
My mates would’ve been out there
Hopefully I can finish work early and get a wave this arvie
Couple of Easty groms, I recognised them in the water. Was only small about 2ft.
Starting to get to know a few familiar faces in the water round here now
Was there any snow? Was a pretty epic weekend for waves from what I've heard, surely it was about 99% man made thin strips only?
The crowds are mental now hey! Can't even begin to fathom the levels in Sydney, even down here in the 'Gong it's been noticeable but most of the time I try to avoid weekends for that reason & utilize my weekday arvo windows, which can be quite rewarding, like last Thursday getting Bello point with 3 others until dark riding some nice waist high sliders on the Mal
Sunday Arvo sliders
Was good enough for the first weekend
No thin strips at Perisher haha
I’d rather be skiing than surfing
I surf so much during the week and all other seasons of the year.
Stoked on the weekend actually! No crowds down there either.
Surfing has become a bit of a chore to me
Until the waves are good that is
Then it’s fkn worth it
Wouldn't wanna be going to that MNC zone that's usually quite and peaceful. It was the busiest I've ever seen (app LWE was even worse) with even lesser known car parks totally overflowing. People everywhere, town running out of food by 6:30pm, chaos, still lots of flappers out there and easy to get waves off
I missed last weekend but did I mention I surfed a more that serviceable point break the sunday prior with no one else out
Does the sand change at that place or is it permanently there and sitting on rock? I scored it last year and was soo fun!
What place, what are you talking about....
No it changes a lot. I'm down about every fortnight, sometimes 3 weekly but generally no more than monthly (C19 aside) and I'm always scoping it for good periods. It's ok to good ATM but not as good as I've seen it.
Hey @SAsurfa and @Belly mates are up there at the moment, they said they still managed to score down back without too many blow ins ruining it. Thank god for the back section, still god's country
Personally would like to put some more time into the SW Rocks zone and some zones north of Coffs. I wouldn't invest too many calories north of Yamba, not my scene.
