    What if you combine the two?

    Hey there kombicad i grew up at macmasters beach and surfed all over the place but never blue bay. I ride a 9'1 longboard in all conditions.
    The best surf i have ever had would be split between green island down south and north shelley.

    Anyone have an old longboard laying around...and by old im talking classic longboard..i want a mid 70's style board to do up to match the Dual cab im building....i figured this is the best place to start. have found a few around the place but need some serious work to have them restored.

    Green Island, now that takes me back. Definately one of the best waves I have surfed is green island 4-5ft with a handful of guys one lazy late summer day with dolphins ahead of you down the line!:wtf:
    Sorry for the indulgence but the mention of green island sent this desert dweller into some kind of flashback big time!

    good to see. i've never surfed green island myself but i've heard alot about it. my preferences are crescent & scotts off season. we try not to bring too much attention to bluey. it's a point / reef break & can fill up with idiots very fast. i usually stear clear on the weekends & leave it to the weekend warriors.

    i get down to saratoga at least once a week. i pick up work off a client down there. nice spot. your profile says your a grease monkey. do you work on VWs ?

    what sort of bus do you drive, i'll keep an eye out for it.

    Hi,
    Just got back 2 days ago from 3 weeks in Bali, while my bus was also having a holiday at the panelbeaters.
    Surfed every day...24 degrees or so in the water and around 3-4' of swell on average.
    Bummer to get back to onshores and cold water.
    Surfed mainly Airports lefts. Plenty of surfers, but usually plenty of waves. There were guys out in a rubber duckie taking photos to sell to us tourists, so I bought a few... great souvenir (when ya not sure how many more years of surfing ya have left in ya).
    Cheers,
    David

    ahhh . . . i passed your bus often. i was down that way on moday arvo & noticed it parked on the main. it's in good nick. boards in the back ready to go.

    not a big fan of heading south myself but, my daughter's going away on a school camp at the end of the year & i was planning on sneaking off to crescent / scotts for a few days while she's gone. it's off season & through the week so maybe we can organise a get together ? surf & herbs getaway
