Onshore slop today so a paddle up river.

Past Riveriders sup storage facility

Past jeff the longboarder weekender

Past a flock of wild Tasmanian water turkeys almost ready for Christmas dinner.

Past the banjo players house

Past another banjo players house

To the mexican fortress next to the duelling banjo players

We will organise a group paddle and race up to the primrose bridge when the new guys have put in a few more hours.

Don't know how long in metres but winter managed to get 1 wave outside lauderdale point all the way in to the dog leg on the beach tapping the 2 minute mark. Points are different I know but was a winner. Will dig the go pro footage out and post sometime.

If it is where im thinking i have often wondered if it is awesome. Is it over on the seven mile beach side from the dodgers ferry boat ramp?

I reckon on a bigish swell you'd get some good waves in there. It'd have to get around the island though... ANyone done it if this isn't the said superbank.

You are in the right spot for stooges, a 20 minute paddle along 7mile from dodges boat ramp, it is far enough along 7 mile not to be influenced by spec island, because of the shape of the beach it magnifies the swell and when it is flat at Carlton & Park you should get a wave at stooges, it can be a bit sharkie and you have to paddle across a deep channel with a strong current but it can be worth it.No one has been over there that I now of when it is really big, but we will one day.

Still waiting on 2MT to disclose the new super bank though.

It just happens to be in the middle of a shark nursery, I recon I've seen a shark 10% of the surfs I had there.

THE BIG REVEAL

couldn't do it due to lack of camera man
but will do it as soon as it all comes together.

ANYWAY

the Super Bank that we all know and love
is now working, as I speek.

5:00am launch

as I drove away to have breakfast Riverider drove in.

we call that SUP tagging

keeps all the others on their game

Just when they think it's safe ... another SUPpie pulls into the car park

Crusin and Skeghead have been seen putting in some practice in the last few days in less than idea conditions, looks like they may have heard the rumour about the "Tassie SUP Platinum Paddle" to be held by Tassies no.1 supper as judged by the board of Tassie SUP.

The full rules of competition will be revealed soon, but this will run along the lines of International Boxing where we will have a champion (ie the holder of the Platinum Paddle) who will make themselves available to be challenged for the title by all comers in a paddler on paddler format.

Tassie SUP are keen to receive nominations from any challengers.

Apparently Spencer's been ripping it up at mujimba Island.
I have just got home from a session at Greenmount, me, two other Sups and a hundred odd surfers, got a few nice waves on my new JP carbon

What size JP have you got BIgman?

How do you go for stability
in the more open coastlines conditions ?

Hi,

I'm trying to get a SUP race and and running at the Sandy Bay Regatta on the 26th for a bit of fun. Can anyone who is interested please let me know so when I meet the committee next week I can give them an indication of interest.

It will be over 1000 - 1500m around buoys.

Thanks.

Jules
