how is the surf in vicco anyways???
the bean special been getting a few head dips?
Yeah good mate. Surfed Winkipop last Sunday arvo, it was 3-4 ft perfection with only about 15 out. Bells was pretty good too (though a little full). Has been some good waves down here lately with lots of offshores. We need a big dirty low from the south and onshores to dump some snow.
that vid of KP is amazing, is that what Kirra was like in the day?
I lived on the Nth Coast from 1981 to 96 and regularly checked out/surfed the Byron area
Last week Broken just blew me away ( didn't surf it for various reasons)and I obviously didn't see the best of it.
I surfed the Pass, seriously demoralising, you need a 9 6 mal, with lots of volume to get a wave, or you can just drop in, the prefered option..but it was school hols..anyway with waves this good you have to expect some competiton..
BH last Thursday
somebody famous again tooling around at the Pass on Friday, taking a pic..he surfed a wave on Thursday at Broken that was just pure magic, the surfing and the wave.....crowds or not,(wasn't that crowded that day) it was freaking inspiring
Not a bad setup
Looks a bit like my local
same spot...quirky song
Just cos the vid is in slow mo, does it really need one painful minute for that video to start?
it wasn't the one I thought
Lady GaGa and Body Boarding, match made in heaven?
Its good to see the second versions intro was 20sec faster to start with no slow mo
rather a bizarre mix of shots through other people and a dude in a wettie out of the Village People and seagulls' undersides and long credits, nice waves though at Stradbroke
Thanks Donza for introducing us to the albino Nick Gornal, I'd say that slow mo vid is at the much overated Iluka Wall.
I think we should draw the line at tow in bodyboarding though.
three too four and much better than it looked this morning. Two of the best waves I've had this winter. Stoked.
sometimes the internet seems worthwhile, an offspring sent me this, it is very cool!
Yeah, 3-4 foot @ Bronte yesterday. Only got a few waves though.
Solid 3 foot at Bondi for the late yesterday, with some more solid sets from time to time.
It's official. I'm a gumby. Three straight sessions of bad surfing. I'm a goose.
2-3 foot Friday, 2-3 foot Saturday. 1 foot Sunday and around 1 foot tops so far, with an increase forecast.
Still on a "mission" to lift my game, but I have a loooooooong way to go. Lots of fitness sessions necessary, sadly, as that's where a good many of my problems start (ie insufficient surf fitness).
Buy a goat boat.
Looking HUGE for tomorrow morning....!
2 foot with occasional 3 foot sets today. A howling westerly is probably slowing the swell increase getting in.
Finally surfed ok today. No goat boats for me!
Which beach were u surfing at Buzzy? Bondi report says 0.5ft this morning!
Yeah but heaps of South and the the wind will be very close to the swell...
Yeah, Bondi. It's picking up. When I first paddled out around 11am, maybe a bit after that, some solid 3 foot sets rolled in, but then it backed off to 1-2 foot for a while. By the time I finished it was back to a consistent 2 foot with occasional 3 foot sets. It'll be consistent 2-3 or possibly 3-4 foot by late this afternoon, particularly if the westerly backs off.
Ankle slappers off shore this arvo . Was a bit of a laugh on the mal.
4' and offshore today. Had a two hour lunch and got in a good session at Bulli. Am totally smoked. Life is good !
Where at? Jetty?
I heard wootown was pretty good.
dunno what it's called but south of Sandon off that exposed rock shelf section in the northern third of the beach. great A-frames.
So inside the bombie? into.. sharkies beach? ...we used to call it white house....alas the white house is gornnne now
straight off beach st.
yeah its just sorta sharkies white house
white house was the right ...
I guess you surfed a left, seeing it was NE swell
gee if you pan south you can see why woonona is so bloody good in NE swell.
yeah, mainly lefts with the occasional right... faaark I had one that just ehld up madly, and wathced two empty ones come through as I paddled back out that were front cover material.
its such a lucky score that wave..cause usually the sand sits on the reef and its one big closeout
I've surfed it cracking once when you took off on whitewater and the bottom would just fall out as it hit that reef....
check my local?
checked corrimal, easty, 'noona, north gong, made the call based on crowd/quality tradeoff
yeah...cause crew are frothing..
My photography doesn't really do it justice though.
I still can't get over crwods here. It was more crowded 25 years ago at Avalon than it is here now.
how you mean? in the gong??
wootown gets crowded on those classic NE swell runner days, but it can be more fun on easterlt swells
Overall in the gong.
schneisleider, that's Mackenzies first two shots, right?
Went the arvo surf yesterday at Bondi. 3 foot closeouts. Surfed like an idiot again.
Something like 8-9 foot today and unsurfable.
Mate paddled out at Sandon today, got 3/4 way out at about 6.30 and snapped his board. Not a happy chappy. Mr Six's birthday today and he woke up as I was getting ready to split so I seem to have missed it as the wind has swung around to be SSW.
CM tommorrow will be better
I'm thinking a wombarra session will be on after lunch
Looks sick at the K.
Interesting that the first 2 shots were Mckenzies, the other shots were North Curly panning south - looks like you covered some territory!
Far southern end of my usual this morning for an hour and a half before the high pushed too much across the rocks and made it too weird. got some very nice waves, and a few punches from some as well getting greedy for the inside cover ups.
Hopefully a smidge of swell left tomorrow morning for the early.
Small at Bondage this morning; occasional chest high faces, but were becoming rare as the swell is being blown to UnZed. New board is nice though, Jackson 7' x 22.5" x 2.75" fish. Currently set up as quad, nice and loose after the 7"4" fun board. Will try it as a twin next.
I'm getting rid of my 7'4" powerglide/funboard and replacing it with a McCoy single fin, but super beefed up. I figure with the more rubenesque dimensions of the McCoy I'll have around the same volume as a more tradtionally proportioned mid length board, but be able to surf it more as a shortboard on very small days.
Bigger surf this morning at Bondage; 3-4' on the sets (faces well over head), but lots of close outs on the low tide. Paddle out was also a biatch with a lot of white water to contend with and no channels with rips to ensure an easy tow. Tried the new board as a thruster but surfed like a gumby; trying to get enough wax on the new board in this cold weather is not easy - I had the board pop out from under me on a number of occasions as I went to paddle for a wave.
surfer dies after being attacked by a shark in WA.
down at Margs.
Those dirty gray suits.
have you seen the go pro vid of that lad on a SUP?
Yeah saw that one come up on facebook late last week, they are always out there. I wonder how many times they have gone right past me without evening knowing. I had two 6-8fters swim under me at the pass one day chasing fish, its the only in 20+ years that i've seen one while in the water.
bells this morning
