The Single Fin Project is on hold this weekend to make some time for some good ol’ ding repair. I was running on one un-dinged board until last week. Had a little accident in the car and my lone watertight board is no longer watertight. So, with some help from Mac Dog, all the little dings, cracked tails, dents and mystery holes in my quiver are now fixed. Bonus.
I got the opportunity to break the swerve of the every-day and head down to the NSW Coal Coast a couple of weekends ago with a handful of good humans. I guess I kind of forgot that part of the world, but there are a lot of quality waves on that stretch. The escarpment that falls behind the beaches gives a sense of place a lot of other Australian look-a-like beaches lack. For me it feels like the crowd factor is low there too (But you regularly can’t see the water for the crowd at Manly so make of that what you will).
