resurrecting an old thread for bucketbong and co...

Check out these fuckers from some big wave challenge which is going on right now. Absolutely massive in Western Australia.



blake3030  said about 9 years ago:

I'm heading down tomorrow morning for a weekend of surfing. Forecast is good, can't wait!

blake3030  said about 9 years ago:

Where are you bucketbongz?

Had a great surf at Bird Rock on saturday. Pretty much had the place to myself too... which is rare as. Nice clean 2-3 foot, steep take-offs, nice walls, a few barrels. Couldn't have asked for a more fun session. Yesterday sucked though, went onshore and shithouse.

I used to surf till I blew my ears up. Good times.

VoxFuzz  said about 9 years ago:

Blake, I can tell you as a passenger trawling every beach from Stanwell Park to Kiama and back, that there was not a wave on Saturday nor Sunday. You should be grateful for your weekend lot.

blake3030  said about 9 years ago:

haha, that's unfortunate Voxy. NSW has had it pretty good over the past few weeks otherwise.

blake3030  said about 9 years ago:

I'm so fookin' sore!

Great surf today though... at Bird Rock once again. Fairly epic conditions actually. Good waves were dominated by the local hardcores, but I managed to pick off a few tasty ones :)

Hooray for the riding of waves.

goldfoot  said about 9 years ago:

I've got to start surfing again. It's so good for the soul.

hiponion  said about 9 years ago:

Does anyone else find it weird that blake surfs? I can't picture it.

It's like trying to imagine Sufjan releasing a metal album

blake3030  said about 9 years ago:

I've done it for 4 times longer than i've liked Sufjan :)

BigJohnStudd  said about 9 years ago:

Whoa, no way dude! Those waves are, like, totally hilacious!

littlearch  said about 9 years ago:

bird rock? mount martha, blake?

Angus  said about 9 years ago:

hey blake is that PaulyG in the pink shorts getting dunked by a wave...?

blake3030  said about 9 years ago:

Torquay, littlerach. Shallow reef break at the right hand end of Jan Juc beach.

Awesome barrels today.

hiponion  said about 9 years ago:


blake3030  said about 9 years ago:

the place in the picture, littlerach.

littlearch  said about 9 years ago:

i can't see pictures, blake

hiponion  said about 9 years ago:


blake3030  said about 9 years ago:

why not littlerach?

blake3030  said about 9 years ago:

Anyone done a lombok boat trip for a week? Looking to do one later in the year with a few mates. Recommendations?

crackwhore  said about 3 years ago:

yep, awesome waves down south of the island.

team ham sandwich  said about 3 years ago:

Who did you go thru cw?

crackwhore  said about 3 years ago:

sorry THS, i should've been more specific. I actually stayed with a mate who lives there and owns a boat so it wasn't a boat trip as such.

team ham sandwich  said about 3 years ago:

Lucky man. Going for a surf this weekend. Where should I go? Thinking down the island way.

crackwhore  said about 3 years ago:

Yep, the island's a good choice, check out what the wind/swell's doing and take it from there.

MissAustralia2003  said about 6 months ago:

that's surf not suf nor sufi

MissAustralia2003  said about 6 months ago:

I should not repeat my mistakes

swahili bob  said about 6 months ago:

I was in the water at the time on Monday 500m away from that guy that got taken by a shark in Ballina early this week.

scary shit !!

swahili bob  said about 6 months ago:

now I've seen everything!!

surfing at The Pass at Byron today with the usual crowd of 100 or so idiots, surf was 4' or so' and the rip was really strong - while padding my ring out to get back out the back this guy on a longboard cruises past me with his arms folded - moving about twice the speed most people could paddle (even without the rip)

the fucking thing had a motor in it !!

I gave me a horrible vision of the future

blake3030  said about 1 month ago:

Was watching it live last night. Fucking terrifying! When he went out of view behind the wave for 5-10 secs after the initial thrashing about, I thought he was gone. My heart races every time I think about it.

I think my next surf will be extra paranoid.

Sunnyboyz  said about 1 month ago:

so hectic.

I was down at Warnambool over the weekend and was watching 3 or so whales down at Logan's Nursery - there was 4 surfers out about 30 or so metres from the whales, which were huge. Pretty awesome sight for the surfers I imagine.

YDWFW Salad Days  said about 1 month ago:

was watching live last night too, felt sick in the guts when it happened

my mate got bitten years ago & that just brought it on home the sheer terror he must have felt at the time

definitely going to be looking around that little bit extra next time i'm in the water

jimmy hutspah  said about 1 month ago:

what a legend. fought off a shark on live tv!

swahili bob  said about 1 month ago:

yeah I was watching it live too - it's spooky up here at Lennox Head at the moment with a few attacks/fatalities in the past month or two

I was in the water at North Wall when the Japanese guy got killed a few months back - haven't surfed there since

there was still 40 or so out Lennox Point this morning and you can guess what most conversations were about
