That was very very good. Surfing, waves, music, edit.

Loved it, even if it made me feel old and inadequate.

In my youth spent a bit of time at NP, those days it ate more people than made it, the boys make it look easy, great surfing.

Looks busy these days.

Fuck God are good. Was expecting My Pal but there ya go.

Also, what was with that burn towards the end of the clip. Thought that dude was in a reasonable spot?

Aren’t they just. Must admit My Pal is really the only song I know properly of theirs but fuck it’s a good one to pump when you’re ripping in and having a night of it

Spent six months over there in 97. Even back then NP was crowded. I only surfed it once. It was this day where there'd be a 4ft set every 20mins or so and then it'd go dead flat. Consequently there was no-one out. I figured three waves an hour would be better than I'd be getting if the usual crowd was out. Anyway, I got about a dozen waves in three hours. Just me and a mate out the whole time. One of the best waves I have ever surfed I reckon. Right up there with Padang, Deserts, Kirra etc. My advice to a visiting surfer however would be unless you're QS or CT level then I wouldn't bother with NP. You won't get a wave. Plenty of other less crowded spots nearby.

Had a late afternoon surf in the exact conditions you described at Gnaraloo in 2008.

4 ft sets with nothing in between and perfect surface conditions. Me and a mate at Centres and the other 2 at Tombstones for a couple of hours. No one else around.

When we came in an hour before dark there wasn't even another car in the car park. Sucked a couple of beers and a doob just enjoying the ambiance before driving back to camp.

You never forget those sessions.

Yeah bloody good surfing, but those young pricks get heaps of waves without having to drop in like at 3:45. That's just shithouse. I'm getting sick of entitled 'pro surfers' in clips burning people. Doesn't matter how good you are, have a bit of respect for people.
