Nobbys In Groundswell - The person who added nobbys to this site is a retard. during groundswell nobbys is 1 of the most powerfull and fast breaks in newcastle. its also the most packed on a good day, its even real heavy in onshore winds. but during offshore you get the hollowest, fastest wave ever. heaps sick
