A kiwi mate of mine surfed in Dubai a couple of days ago as he stopped by on route to the UK and sent me this. You been here yet Tux? I haven't - think I would be keen to give it a go as it sure doesn't look too crowded The sweet potato would love it out there!
"I had to surf a reef board as all the rental fishes were damaged or snapped but i managed to get a couple of waves and through a vid together....I recommend taking your own board up there as the wave requires something more fishy to make the most of the sections it throws up and you cant rely on the rentals as they only have 4 boards and only 2 of those are proper fish dimensions
Surfed LM into GM all morning on this 12 foot Robert August beast little 1 foot glassy sliders best fun I have had in a long time I could even get into waves earlier than the fat boy on the 12 foot SUP out there this morning it was offshore and he had to much wind resistance
I have got this one to mate its bigger than the purple one I forget how to measure the size of a fin
my secret spot on the northwest coast
have surfed this spot about 40 times annd have only ever shared it with a few dolphins , my idea of paradise ,
gets pumping when the northeast winds come up
^^^^not until you have to put on all the rubber. you blokes might love your lations heaps tassie...but you are freaking tough bunch
yes i did it at macs LM nice waves not too crowded met Blair and saw Vanders and LM himself the Mac.We all got seperated as catch a wave and walk around for the paddle out,then the crew went to SDR's factory to order boards even Mac might be changing teams.
What Asea said except the last part,Steve told me to p1ss off the Byron something about copying designs.
+1 on that net surfing whilst " working"
Gerad Healy surfs good, was in water with him at secret location well north of WA, near Uluwa-u, place euro babes love ends in-----gang in head to head half, also with n jones of Melbourne demons fame- both chilling after season on their wat to GLand...whoops mentioned secret spot...thums comin
I surfed nowhere today - its small and weak and crap like. Instead I ended up at a house auction that sold before it started, Tuggerah Mall to buy some chick stuff from the David Jones, The Entrance markets and now I am finally back home. Thank god the rain has stopped.
Now I just need to read the form guide for the big race this arvo....I am tipping the Kiwi horse - long odds as well
Shark Tower with MR and a couple of the crew, tiny, so no one out, but with plenty of foam, we all managed to bag a covey
Didn't get into the water until about 12.30 and MR and Brad were just going home after being in since about 10. You needed that long to score enough waves to call it a sesh seeing as how it was so bad.
I walked all the way down to the pylon and practiced any silly moves I could think of, then I did something kinda weird that I often do when the surf is small, I moved back up to sharktower, maybe 400 metres, but I didn't walk along the beach and I didn't paddle, I walked/crawled in the waist deep shallows pushing the board sideways in front of me while I rested my elbows and head on the board.
I just find it really relaxing, but you don't half get some strange looks from the people walking along the beach.
MR's going to be away for the next 2 weekends I'm going to have to find someone else to drop in on
Next time you're down, come for a surf with me MR and Ted, it'll only take 15 minutes of driving to learn the code.
Surfed some delicious waves at little crowed. Super fun day. I scored a few and taught a grom a lesson in manners/drop ins
here, hope ya got amongst it today Pup, not far from here would have been smoking and with a few LBer's getting some lengthy rides.
