This year has been nuts if your a fan of the surfing game & if your reading this then I am guessing you are ? Who would have seen Wilko take the yellow jersey at Snapper then have another win & a final under his belt after J Bay to still be on top coming into the final half of the season! I heard an inside whisper of a top Aussie claiming that he thought Italo Ferreira would win the title this year, which could still happen, but no predictions about Wilko.

Your read the title correctly! Modom has a new shark deterrent leash coming out possibly in the next couple of months. The leash is supposed to throw out some sort of signal that turns the sharks away & is apparently especially useful in deterring Bull Sharks, a known shark for attacking humans. 

Surfing in Victoria is an experience that every surfer should take part in atleast once in there life. Big, raw swells that roll in out of deep, cold water. Whether you are surfing on the East Coast or West Coast of Victoria (Yes Vicco has both an East & a West Coast) you are probably going to need some foam in your board.

Now everywhere has runs of small swell, definitely some places more than others, so I think focusing on the consistently solid swell that lashes both Victorian Coastlines is the way to go.

I usually do a Christmas post in December to bring on the New Year & thank all of our regulars & one off customers alike for there support & wish everyone a Happy New Year. December gone was a little different. Busier than ever & working day & night to make sure all the presents made it under the tree & everyone got what they were after, I like to think we succeeded, as each year we have another wave of happy new customers & a strengthening relationship with the happy ones from the year before. 

When thinking surfboards in Queensland, you could come up with a diverse range of boards across the breaks  this state has, but generally there is a common theme. Sand bottom right handers is a phrase that comes to mind, also mushy beach breaks follows a close second when thinking about QLD.

The World Title Rankings

Madness to think we are only a few months away from crowning another Surfing World Champion! It has seriously been a funny old year. Snapper was absolutely ordinary at best, same as most of the other contests with flashes of perfection here & there. The question has risen again though, who is going to be world champ. Apparently not Freddy Pattachia who belted out a ten in his round one heat at Trestles the other morning came in & called it quits, what a way to go out! 

Over the years we have sold countless boardbags, different brands, different shapes & sizes, all to accomadate your surfcraft, whatever it may be. There is a few things to take into account when selecting a board bag. First thing that people miss is making sure that the bag is wide enough. Most bags accomadate the width of even most hybrid shapes but every now & again people get stuck. Find out the width of the bag before purchasing. 

In a couple of months, maybe less depending on where you are in this beautiful country of ours, it's going to be time for getting back down to the beach & enjoying all of the perks that come with it. Here at TWS we pride ourselves on our softboard range! Having something for everyone, whether it be pricepoint your after, the best design, durability or something the whole family can enjoy.
