    { was there last two weeks July we had the advantage of a boat, I surf here around home at Port very uncrowded.
    The Ments are more crowded now than they were but the boat and a good guide is the key.
    we has 6-8 ft swell so it sorts out the charf and if you are surfing the best waves in the world you expect some competition but I had no problems, I certainly didn't have anyone drop in on me and I was often the oldest guy in the line up.

    Ive booked for next year same mob.

    Resurrecting this thread.....
    Wishing every salty dog a Happy International Surfing Day for yesterday.
    Hope you all got a few slides in.
    I was fortunate enough to share perfect, long 1-2' walls in offshore conditions with only one of my sons and his girlfriend for company.
    It may have only been small, clean & offshore, ( and we were all on longboards), but we all left the water stoked after a cracker session in perfect conditions.
    Cheers,
    Mark

    It was on my bucket list. Surfing in real cold water. Whilst here in BC Canada I braved 8 degrees water and 25 knot Winds to surf chesterman beach on the west coast.
    A hood, boots gloves and 5.4mm wetsuit made it comfortable but alas after 1 hour i couldn't feel my feet and hands anymore.

    I also had to have a bit of a chuckle. As an Aussie I am so used to foreigners asking "aren't you scared of all the things that can kill you,snakes sharks, fighting kangaroos, blue ringed octopus?"
    In Canada there are roadside signs warning what to do in the event of a tsunami and to use bear spray against the aggressive beasts.

    Your a braver man then me LOL I struggle in 18 degree water here in Oz. Looks freezing and bloody windy mate. Anyway you can tick that off your list now and get back into boardshorts here on the east coast.

    I agree w you. 25 degrees in the sunshine coast water is nice.
    I will however come back in summertime one year. Tofino has a real surf culture vibe to it, I guess perhaps like Byron in the 70s

    Currently in NZ on holidays, had no real intention of surfing but brought the steamer anyway. Having lived and surfed here before I certainly don’t miss wearing 5.3’s and booties. Few waves around though so may be tempted to duck in
