Yesterday, Maroubra Beach, NSW. Started out looking like 2 foot at the south end, ended up easily 4 foot+ but with intensity and strong push. north end was a couple of foot bigger. The amount of people out there was insane. https://www.facebook.com/rbattam/videos/10216272240673030/
https://youtu.be/6pJrBn2DIPA I took my Harley XL883N Iron Sportster down to Phillip Island and rode it into a ditch off the road before we even went to the track, so I ended up having to ride my brothers Honda CBR 1000, which is a fast sports bike, I've never been on a sports bike so it … Continue reading Phillip Island, Victoria – Surfing, and Grand Prix Circuit.

Today was mostly 3, 4, and 5 foot Close-Outs. couple of short rides, but the rest was wipe-outs and paddling and just survival for me lol. Better than doing nothing, but I do miss some nicely sloped waves.

Today was at Maroubra, tomorrow will be at Wanda beach. I've also for 2nd week in a row … Continue reading Blue Bottle Raid

Charmaine had her first try today, after just a couple of goes lying on the board, she figured out to push up, and then move the hands back a bit lower and push up. I went off on my own after that, I should have stayed and reminded her to move across. Anyway, Charmaine paddled … Continue reading Charmaine’s first experience!
Today wasn't good for learning but I got a few, got smashed hard in the face by my board a couple of times, beach was closed due to dangerous rips, which meant messy conditions but less swimmers and surfers out there so I could pick my own little spot often. Only people out there today … Continue reading Mad Fun, but rough surf.
