If you find yourself within a mile of the Huntington Beach Pier in the next week you’ll bear witness to hundreds of thousands of scantily clad youth at surfing’s spectacle of the year. Festivities carry on throughout the day, but it’s after the last autographs have been signed that the real trouble begins. For some, this is easy to avoid. Fine southern gentlemen, like the Hobgoods, have gained an advantage in many early-morning heats here, fresh off eight perfect hours of sleep.

Waxy Wax - Product Review

posted by Stranger on Mon, 07/16/2012 - 06:43

Just the sheer magnitude of all the different brands of surf wax to choose from can make your head spin, and often times you just basically close your eyes, reach into the wax box and pick a random bar of wax. More times than naught, you're satisfied with your “choice”. In fact, you convince yourself that the wax you chose is the best because it has sparkles in it (or something like that), and never buy any other brand. Well, I can understand your fear of delving into that vast market of surf wax – let's face it: the days of buying paraffin wax from the chemist are over.

Last year when the Code Red swell was forecast for the Billabong Pro Teahupoo, the best big-wave surfers arrived en masse and charged one of the biggest days of the year. It was a spectacle, and Billabong capitalized on the situation by keeping the cameras rolling, and subsequently marketing the footage.

Webber Wave Pools has recently introduced a new wave pool design to the world of surf parks and artificial wave technology. Their latest design is a crescent shaped wave pool that is capable of producing world class waves at a fraction of the cost of the full size circular wave pools.

The quality of the waves will be the same as any of the other Webber Wave Pool designs and will provide surfers with rides lasting up to 30 seconds. This length of ride is comparable to the maximum ride length of Wavegarden’s pool designs.

Sunshine Coast River Mouth ..Pumping !!!

posted by Stranger on Mon, 06/18/2012 - 16:53

The Sth East Queensland coastline is dotted with an array of surfing breaks.

From Agnes Waters to Snapper Rocks, we are pretty much spoiled for choice , with reef, sand , right and left hand point breaks, and even an island to get our froth on.

However, our coastline also has alot of river systems that empty their way out into the pacific ocean, and when mixed with the right amount of sand and a good swell, they come alive with some of the best waves Queensland can offer..
