We're going to rename the location, that's all (and create a seperate forecast data point for it too). Probably a couple of weeks away at the moment.

Mmmmm, me thinks you could run a competition on renaming Westernport Ben. My off the top of my head suggestions could be … No-swellville, Camville (just how many cams are located in WPort anyway?), Old-manville, grumpy old-manville, SUPville, kiddie land, geez the list could go on and on.

Happy christmas to all my friends in the telephone booth, party on.

Got stuck into you hey, I can see how tempers would flare on such a touchy subject.

Merry Christmas.

I'm the scab you keep picking off and is there again the next day.

Floyd, a couple of Peninsula surfers I know refer to the region as Coward's Cove. Not sure what impact that might have on our SEO though.

Too true Ben, although there is one wave in the joint that does smack, "on its (rare) day".

Coward's Cove. I love it.

The whole state could be called that, couldn't it? The complete absence of barrels and all that ...

... Just kidding my Victorian brothers. Just kidding.

Merry Christmas to you and your outer reefs and the big sharks which swim around them.

I shit myself in Tassie when a Killer whale swam past me and one other bloke surfing way down on the Tassie peninsula. It was about 40-50 metres away swimming parallel to the rock ledge we were on, and it's fin out of the water was taller than me.

Me and the other bloke just looked at each other with dropped jaws and paddled straight into an oncoming set onto the rocks.

lol ...
