Stoke surf today!

Postby Alwayzthekook » Thu Sep 28, 2006 3:07 am

Because of the 'Today's surf' thread that's running & running......
...& inspired by a Swaylocks thread......

Thought I'd get up a sticky for us to post the sessions that gave us the stoke as they happen.
Doesn't necessarily have to be about epic surf - just about getting that high, the reason why we keep going back for more 8)

I'll start:

Scored The Pass with only 4 people out & the sun shining. All of us strangers spent the whole time giggling that we had it all to ourselves.
3-4ft, 20-150m rides..... and I've just tuned into a new understanding in riding the fish.

Such a sweet, classis (though brief) session 8) 8) 8)

Amen to that :-D

just come back from portugal and the first 2 days stoked me out beyond belief.

we surfed cabedelo those 2 days, had it about 4-6ft and glassy clean, its easily the most amaizing beach break i've ever surfed, was in the water for atleast 6 hours each day just chilling with my friends on our own private peak for the most part.

Caught the biggest wave of my life (so far) at Fistral on Tuesday. If you were there around 1:30pm you might have heard me whooping like a red indjun.

Its that feeling of speed and height that takes you by surprise, and then you've got to choose your angle and just commit to it. Amazing. I felt like a really progressed as well, with my timing.

Its like you said REO, its something you can think about at work all week.

West Pier is the nearest break - if you can call it that. Other than that, Hot Pipes. I hear theres something to be had by the marina but I've not checked it out yet. You?

yeah, w.pier is literally at the end of my rd. pretty crap most of the time tho. ok for a bit of fun on the log. hotpipe is better. marina is a chalk reef break, reasonably sheltered but dont go there unless you can surf- locals get piss'd off with beginners/intermediates getting in the way. i've only been out there once cos i'm still pretty wobbly.
i ride my new little fish thing most of the time, the thruster comes out v. occasionally and the log when there really is no other choice. you?

best not mention our miserable day yesterday driving round looking for something decent with a bit of a shelter.

first rule broken, if you see somewhere surfable don't head off to look at somewhere else. a good 4-6 hours driving a couple of good rides on big lumpy waves and a good clean of the sinuses elsewhere after a big paddle that resulted in me stoping to sit out back 1 minute before the arrival of the cleanup set :(

still, it makes you feel alive and we toured some beaches and looked at some spots, all part of the learning curve.

probably got the same planned for the weekend.

I'm still thinking a bout two of my best waves ever that I go in France 3 weeks ago. Just really got everything right for once and the feeling was amazing. It also helped that the water was warm and I was wearing boardies and rashie.

I want to be able to do that everytime now :shock: :shock: :-)

I had a run in with a kite boarder at watergate and I reckon it's a good idea to have a flare gun and burn the bloody things out of the sky.

Seriously, I think they are a fucking hazard, that and bloody jet skis.

But on the surfing note, had a bumpy session by myself earlier, had a few nice ones. Sorted the hangover right out and now may go for a jaunt down the coast and go in again.

Had a few fun ones at Harlyn. More tricky as the wind got up, typical Harlyn sand enemas all round.

Just got back from trying my new board out = :toothy8:

It is so so different from my progressive board I can't begin to describe it, but it's good. Had some lovely long lefts, wind was a bit annoying but the extra weight of the new board helped me a lot.

I was in with my 3/2 with cut off legs, absolutely fine. Last year I used that until it was nearly christmas. Save the winter rubber for when it gets cold.

Cabarita Beach yesterday. My first visit.
What a hidden gem that is!

Crappy to mediocre surf, but the sun shining & a humback whale with calf frolicing for ages just 150m off shore. :shock: Very special 8) 8) 8)

Too right, last year it was early December before the winter layer went on, but yesterday for some reason I was freezing!

Fistral was lovely yesterday - heaps of waves coming through for everyone. Real good atmosphere. Maybe it was the lack of longboarders :wink:

Was fine in my 3/2 - the water's still toasty!
