Bloggers Waves

Wellymon posted an awesome lineup shot of a windswept break somewhere east of Kiwiland a while back. That got me thinking..... Now please excuse and forgive me if somewhere deep in the bowels of swellnets forums there is a similar thread, but perhaps bloggers here could post in their old (and new) lineup photos, or shots from memorable sessions.
And please don't "photoshop" them...... Personally, I despise photoshop. It's not real..... I love the rustic charm of real photography, even it's imperfections. I like the older photo's in picture magazine too, if ya get my drift..... nothing like a rough tattooed home girl, but that's another story ;)
I'll kick it off with Coolum bays, as good as it gets, circa late 90s, and a slightly more secret break , 2012, down here in apple land, which I wont name.......
Look closely, first photo of coolum, has guy on outer wave, second photo has 3rd bay kegging off it's nut, and tassie photo also has guy sweeping bottom turm on outside bomb...

Nice work Fraser-Gordon.
Experienced exactly that moment approx 50 metres south of the guy in that last pic after not touching the ocean for the preceding three months. I wouldn't say I properly panicked but... Actually I would say I properly panicked.
Ninety days of working and drinking May prepare you for something (?) but definitely not that.
Your first photo was a smoker also.

Which, of course, was why your very next post after mine was:
"I'd tell you what happened next gimp, but sidwe wouldn't understand."

And why you made absolutely NO attempt to set Zenagain straight when he said:
"Well credit where credit is due. That is a serious wave Uppity."

Lyin cunt.

Brutuseless stop making another thread about me. You've already been been globally, publically and now group bitchslapped. Again. All those frantic, frenzied late night calls for nothing. 'Wordy I dun all me checkin' we got im' wordy, I finally dun up 'lifty'.

You idiot.

A line up shot simply posted in the line up thread, and next thing, its all about 'lifty'. The stray gimp forever immortalised his geekness, his gimpness, cockily lambasting a legend at a legendary spot as a total kook, and total shit wave, and gimp devotees began ambling and stumbling and pouring out of the woodwork, forever exposed. 'Lifty' this, 'lifty' that, its 'lifty', its not 'lifty'... 'lifty' won't answer me... I beat 'lifty'. Immortalised in print.

The poor, flea ridden dawg, scurrying back and forth, yipping and yapping frantically... which way shall I run, surely 'lifty' couldn't take out that many geeks in one hit... I'll go for safety in numbers!!! Fatal mistake. Forever, globally bitch slapped in public. A global, public, mass, group geek slapping. I didn't even have to try. Too easy.

Zen - Well I woulda hoped that I wouldn't really need to protect myself there, but some wierd, Simpsons like shit has been found nearby. Dawg would probably know what I'm talking about, but you left that area way before. In any case, nothing like the Kujukuri Coast, there was a TV, a dead dog and a bunch of other trash on the beach that day of the photo above. Apparently that beach was opposite a porno filming office, so sometimes we'd see girls posing up on the groyne; think these guys were just keen punters though haha.

And btw, Tokyo surfers bring froth to another level! Will surf 2ft wind chop in winter! How's the vibe at your local?

If we were all at a beach carpark and you were carrying on like this, I don't need to spell out what would happen to you. But in saying that, if we were, you wouldn't be so stupid as to try, so don't do it here ya clown.

Don't risk it, its heavier than blacks, you self admittedly bombed out badly there, you'll be washed away for sure.

At 9.25am, sheepdog said Uplift would write this "You've lost control of another thread dawg"

At 9.25am, sheepdog, after frantically reading, rereading, researchin' scurryin', backtrackin', yapping and a whinin' rolled on his back for the gimp, down thar in them woods. It was then he knew for sure the global, public bitchslap was inevitable. Despite the bristle up, chihuahuas always do.

fitz, uplift does his best talking in carparks. especially when its big. talks a big game upsydaisy and always has a good excuse for dodging the big days.

upsydaisy would have never, ever, ever, ever, did I mention ever? ever go out on a day that big. And its always only easy takeoffs for upsydaisy on anything bigger than 4ft; for 2 reasons:-
i. lack of gonads.
ii. the big fat wide kook boards he rides cant make critical drops.
but wait, upsydaisy told his shaper "he loves doing squats and dead lifts" (read poo-man stance) so that's why he shaped them like that.
"haha, fooled you gimps and geeks (word of the week) again. its not a poo-man stance, i am just doing squats while i am surfing. hahaha, hopeless gimps and geeks. deluxe. amasing."

WORDY SAID IT, SO BAD LUCK!!

Is this what generally happens here? I take it some of you blokes actually know uplift..... Has he ever seeked therapy for his attention seeking issues? I mean, when you combine his neverending need for the spotlight (whether it is good or bad publicity) with his fixation on male muscular fitness, then ad a dash of denial, I think we may have a latently gay man trapped in a downward spiral.....

i've got different memories Benski. Lived at the Shine eightynine-ninetyfive and resorted to night surfing Tea tree to avoid the madness. Chased my last swell to Noosa in Two thousand and swore I'd never go near the place again.

It was packed back then. Can't imagine the joint getting anymore crowded.

I was a late arrival surfing there to be sure (mid 90s) but still found a few moments of peace. But yeah, I dig what you're saying. I stopped going back around 2004. I've often thought of hitting teas on a full moon tho. I imagine there'd be a few out there.

Got some screamers, but copped me board under the chin late in the sesh.... Bam.... stars..... Spewin....Paddled back out.... Couple of guys looked at my chin and said "fuck mate"..... Caught a bomb from the outer point with a blood drenched white rashy..... paddlers gawking...... 10 stitches..... Such is life

I remember that swell, sheepdog. I always thought it was on 27th Dec 99. I was at the boiling pot but also paddled/surfed across to the groyne for a while and back to the pot. Not a fun run back out that one! Got some crackers that day. I was still on a booger back then. Still remember some of those waves. Courier mail had an article about it the next day too.
