kirra is said to have been better - i used to live at rainbow bay a short drive from here which is a treat if you surf as it truely doesnt take that long to get to snapper for a surf. I found that the super bank never works cause the sand is fucked up all the time any way the council is about to fix all our problems by bringing back kirra which is a fare way up the coast. I think ill move to kirra if the waves crank there all the time but i doubt it will. so ill just have to go back to nz to surf any decent right points.

crapper - yeh this break is good but everyone that surfs it is a homo. all the pros clog up the line-up. they get to surf all over the world and then they come home and think its their god given right to get every decent wave that rolls through. they can piss off. as for localism here or anywhere for that matter: you may live locally, but the only thing you own is the patch of land you paid for so go and localise your house by all means but you cant claim to own a break just because you live near it. half of you rent anyway.
