Dude, I seriously wish I could. Business has picked up so maybe I can go back to my jet-setting ways in a few months.

This work crap sucks. I need to galavant and figurehead and let everyone else do the actual work.

Do you think these guys get a break on the slip fees since the entrance to the marina is a little dicey?

Hey Smacker,
the cat coming ove the bar is the Southport seaway - our back yard! He used up a few of his cats 9 lives - and was skilled or lucky he did not broach. You know that old saying that the _________ of the act is proportional to the number of people watching..

The east coast of Australia has a number of bar crossings. Southport is considered a 'seaway', not a bar and is the safest.

NSW has some very dangerous ones.

We have surfed in over the Wide Bay Bar in the last boat, a 36' mono. One swell, which broke and we surfed it for half a mile. I kept the nose head on, to stop any chance of broaching. It was interesting. The swells were about 3-4m which is just a tad bigger than the ones in your 2nd vid. The 2nd vid - I saw a gn beacon and a number of surfers - not good for the blood pressure. I reckon he could have munched a board rider towards the end.


Lake sailing dont have swells or bar crossings - I think I might find a big lake.

That whole bar crossing thing is insane. It gives me indigestion just thinking about it.

I get all nervous when my ob dies in the fairway. Sounds like I might need to HTHU!

Dude 1: Smoke this.... yeah.. I'm gonna go stand at the mast.

Dude 2: Think we should take the Bimini down?

Dude 1: Nah, you might get a sunburn.
