Yep braved the rocks locally on Sat arvo in wind, was more fun than expected but today on a early high tide was super fun. Surfed on my new SDR Boston Switch for both days and really enjoyed it..

Coped a stinger to the face yesterday though not too much fun

Two days of surf though, hard to beat



So it went ok then?



Yeah. Harder to duck dive then the Evo, even though less volume, much easier to surf and paddle was also okay. Maybe it feels a little thin (width wise) across my chest area and just forward of that but all in all not bad.

Certainly a lot more solid in construction than anything I've surfed in some time

Hoping for round three tonight


What lenght JB, I have molested them a few times in the local surf shop

Its a 6'8" at 40.3 ltrs. I picked up at a price i couldn't refuse. As i said its well built, solid and feels good under foot. Maybe a little more subtle to ride than my Evo.

For now its a cheaper, so dropped it of to Dave today to get my Rpela fitted

I managed to surf yesterday in smallish slop and it still paddled really well. Just feels weird i guess coming from square nosed boards. I find the paddling sweet spot forward and back rather different so will take a little more to get used too..But so far very happy.

Checked my favourite nw wind novelty wave but alas it was infested with grommets like a rash, I procured a coffee and watched it for 15-20 minutes 20 out when I got there and 30+ when I left I thought about it but left them too it

My local's been putting out the messy onshore goods the past few days. Watching it now and, maybe I'm getting old, but I really can't be ****ed paddling out in the 2mm.

Come on now...it's been common knowledge for the past couple of years that I soften up and started wearing a 2mm....more because of the constant jellyfish stings but hey.

Reckon I've had one surf in the last eight weeks or so, just cbf at present. What's worse it was metro with only five out, good consistent waves and the other four were frothing like a Brazil nut milkshake. Got a few and left them to it in disgust.

I do not like the cold and the clouds and the wind and rain either, it generally keeps the crowd down.
you know what ruined surfing in Perth (get ready for a good rant, chill ya beers put your feet up and get ready for the download)
fly in fly out.........So yeah it's a Monday looks good on the charts should be uncrowded I'll check the spot ......can't get a carpark full of fifo workers .........oh well there goes my midweek sesh for the next three weeks........

Next time same thing on a Thursday and local, it really makes my potatos boil....
Oh well watching the news ahhh a bit of a mining downturn and 3000 jobs lost, maybe everyone will go back to Queensland vicco and nz..... nooooo they don't they stay in perth surfing all day everyday until the next construction gig....
hurry up and build the pipeline for water from up north these guys need jobs and I need a bit of a surf..........

Classic rant Razz, I hear what you are saying - its been that way for a while now - have to work a bit harder at scoring empty waves, or smarter, or just end up surfing regardless of the forecast.

I still reckon you can score on forecasts that people write off, if you know your weather patterns you can still score. 3m swell with offshore winds will be crowded no matter the day of the week, trick is picking the sessions that people don't see coming.

Anyway - had a surf at scabs this morning - was one of the fattest and most inconsistent sessions I have had but I still had fun getting in the water and paddling around chasing lumps with a mate.

I noticed a definite change in mid week crowd numbers about 10-15 years ago, which I've always thought must be with the rise in fifo numbers. That said, I noticed a similar increase of people on the freeway earlier in the morning too. Maybe just more people moving over and buying in outer suburbs. I moved out of Perth, plenty of uncrowded sessions now.

Ah ok, I know where you mean now. I probably should have looked there to be honest!

Would love to be able to surf mid-late morning this week, once that tide drops a bit would most probably be pretty fun.

Cold....and empty classic head high beachies, crowd got out of hand just after school drop off. Had to manage left and right peaks between the two of us oh.... and we are both FIFO worker's ****....if it wasn't for us would have been no one out just sharks and whales!

Razz you should move down to the South Coast. You'll have to get used to mid week surfs alone though.

Hoax! - well at least at LBB which was utter sh!t. Shoulder high wind affected fat burgers. Occasional head high set, but they were all over the place. 1/10 - and that's only because the sun was shining!

You didn't miss much in Perth, that's for sure. Except a 2.5 meter black tip man eater that kept the inspectors busy up and down the beach, saving as yet unpanicked beach goers from certain death.
