Have not posted for a while, recently I went out and broke my brother-in-law's board. A bigger wave popped up than the 4 footers I saw from shore, and i didn't get under it properly, so the board got snapped. They advertise these boards for no bigger than like 4 ft waves, on these shitty … Continue reading SNAP!
Took Charmaine out to do things she is a bit scared of today, south rip, and some other rips, got her paddling more. Caught a couple of good ones! Soon getting go pro so I can have a video log!
The wind nearly blew me away at Maroubra, you get pushed from south to north end in Like 10 minutes, but the water was nice! Jack all waves though. The green board has been sun damaged got a bubble under the top skin, might slice it open with a razor blade and contact cement it … Continue reading Board and wind!
Yesterday at green hills some decent 2 footers, but had to stay stable there was so much force exploding under my board on and off on the surface of the water it was like riding a bull. The day before I hit up Maroubra but had some decent rides on and off, even though it … Continue reading Maroubra and Greenhills
Maroubra was small but fun today had some sick rides left. Can't wait for tomorrow to smash some more waves. Will start working on turning back in a month. But for now more long rides on the face 🙂
So today I’ve taken some Video advice and started popping up faster, and turning my head the way I want to go as I finish paddling and dropping in the way I look. Still need to get up faster but this is making everything so much better. No more straight drops for me. Damn it … Continue reading Windy + Gains
Btu what time of year does Wediawu have waves? I’ve seen many picturs of it, and in those pictures it looks as flat as a swimming pool? it is not going to attract surfers if it is not pumping out good waves.
Kawasan Pantai Wediawu, di Kecamatan Tirtoyudo ibarat permata yang tinggal dipoles. Bila ditangani dengan tepat, maka Pantai Wediawu bisa mengalahkan Bali sekalipun.
Hal itu terungkap dari agenda kunjungan Staf Ahli Co-Branding Kementerian Pariwisata Budi Rizanto Binol di Pantai Wediawu, Sabtu (12/1).
”Seperti yang diketahui, kondisi Bali saat ini benar-benat crowded. Kabupaten Malang ini menjadi jujukan kedua dan Pantai Wediawuitu satu-satunya yang cocok bagi pencinta surfing,” kata dia.
Ya, seperti diketahui, Bali memang sudah kadung ramai oleh wisatawan. Ketika sedang padat-padatnya, aktivitas surfing pun tidak bisa dilakukan dengan leluasa.
Maka itu, perlu ada upaya untuk mempromosikan potensi Wediawu. Nah, karena itulah Kemenpar datang.
Budi bahkan sempat merasakan bagaimana menginap di Wediawu. Tepatnya di Joni Surf Camp, sebuah area dimana wisatawan bisa bermalam di tenda-tenda yang disediakan.
Selama di Wediawu, rombongan dari Kemenpar juga mendokumentasikan potensi pantai tersebut. ”Dokumentasi itu yang…

Charmaine has her first board, 8 ft, the same as my brother-in-law's, but they gave her a 9 foot leash, like they gave us 7 foot leashes haha, why cant they just give 8 foot for 8 foot lol😂. And they ran out of bags so they gave her an 8 foot SUP bag. Which fits … Continue reading Charmaine’s first board
Today Greenhills beach was like a swimming pool. 0.25-0.5ft waves, rides being ruined by old men dropping in for a body surf, Can't wait till school holidays to be over so the kooks that don't understand safety and etiquette can go do their usual routine.
So here’s the pros and cons of my new big fat green board, Pros Standing on it is like standing on land, very easy. Paddling on it is easy. To keep surfing a wave for longer is easy. Cons Dropping in straight on a wave even with your weight back it will dig in and … Continue reading New Fat Boy
