You did better at lakeys than me Indo. I can't remember getting too many barrels and I copped the worst flogging of my life (no confused , second worst).
I got caught inside with a solid set looming over my head and about 20 inches of water to hide in. I managed to wedge myself in a crevis in the coral but the wave just plucked me off the reef like a starfish and rolled my across about 20 meters of coral. When I came up, both my board (brand new) was snapped in halve as well as my legrope.

Yesterday I was at shida shita. I know that the taito - shida shita stretch gets mocked by everyone, but throught june and this first week of july, it has had the best shape of all the spots from katagai south every time except for once. It's really odd because last year it was just slop around there, whereas now it's shapely (if small).

Mate, by that time I"d spent almost 6 months there during that year.
I could navigate the place (Peak/pipe) with my eyes closed!

Hey King, I was at Shida shita, too. from 11ish to 1pm with Rob and two other girls.

It was getting too windy in the afternoon and we decided to go home for lunch.

I think I'm going to have a lesson next time from CHP nori san.

Why is this guy wearing a steamer at Pipeline?

 

Because it ain't pipe. It's the South coast NSW last week. This kid only got his first pubes a few years ago.

Hello there, I saw a girl with Rob but I don't think it was you, must have been one of the others. I was the only guy in the water in shorts and a rash guard, everyone kept on asking me if I was cold but it was lovely and warm! I go down there quite a lot with Tsondaboy so we should say hello next time!

Yeah PP.

That reef is fairly gentle, though the right shallower and sharper than the left.

On BIG days the inside gets pretty dry (as I found out) but pipe is were I paid my dues!

I'd give my left nut to be over there now..
