White Sand Bay Sunset

Tobes went to Bai Sha Wan yesterday, late afternoon, no wind, low tide. Small, clean right hand peelers all to himself. Longboard, beautiful sunset, surfed till dark. Had a great time. Now, that sounds good...

Return to Jinshan...great!

Dave and Dan headed over to Jinshan this morning and scored a great surf. Usual crowd was thinned out by a number of peaks breaking across the beach. Some real ground swell action, both boys commenting it felt like a "real" surf. Lots of left shoulders, some walling up right into the shore, with the occasional right as well. The point was trying hard to work, but the swell was not quite coming from the right direction. Looks a bit scrappy in the pics, but it was better than this.

New Tassie Monster Wave

Check this story. Thanks to Lewy, the official Pointyhat "Tasmanian big wave spotter".

Wild Thing!

Faster than an out of control set at Greenball, more powerful than a harbour wall wave in a typhoon at Wushi: speed, power,'s Greg's new superbike. More fun than you've ever had out of the water, maybe Greg will sit you on the back of this super accelerating power Trumpy. Dave was lucky enough to take this savage beast for a little spin and despite being very tentative, nearly ripped his arms out of their sockets with a twitch of the accelerator...don't expect to see Greg back in the water for a while, this is just too much fun!!

Beware the river outlets...

Dave surfs in the background of the river of death: He is just surfacing today after 4 days totally incapacitated from a vicious bug picked up surfing in the filth of the Rocket's outfall... and it wasn't even that good!

Ten ten

The cliff had some nice clean swell, but it tended to be a bit full. A move round the corner to the Rocket was great for Dave: the waves a little smaller but breaking on a bank, quite glassy and moving quickly across the inner bank. Lots and lots of fun little lefts all to himself!
Tobes, Gary and the boys were out at Fulong where Dan and family went yesterday as well. Dave was on his way today, but couldn't rouse Tobes on the phone... understandable: he was probably out surfing!

Kids Cut Loose

Tobes is taking some great still and video footage on his in-water wrist camera. Jack and Luke are really showing some great balance and ability these days, while GP continues to style. Only trouble with taking these shots is that we don't get any of Tobes himself!

Slater: 9X

One of, if not the, greatest sportsmen to ever live has taken out an unbelievable 9th world title. It's almost impossible to use enough superlatives to describe this achievement, so I won't try! Check this article instead...

Gary and Tobes really enjoyed some nice clean waist high shooters at Pointies yesterday. They were getting some 25 metre rides after a steep takeoff...sounded like fun!

Rumour has it that one of the Pointyhats has turned to the dark side: high powered motorbikes being ridden all weekend long? Guess who has a new toy?!
