- I am sick of the tryhards from Chantys coming to Greenough, this was a wicked secret spot until it was in that Billabong surf movie.
Andy Irons you suck.

let me say....this - this wave starts only to operate between september onto late summer.
this is cause, the southerly kicks in strong in that area, hence the famous funny bent trees.
it is this wind, that forms the bank,
and works amazing, even small,
very punchy, long. if you spend a summer in gero, and your a surfer who didnt know this spot, you would die of boredom. you would become, the chairman of the bored.
by the way,
911 was done by bush and cheney.
there were 3 buildings, not two. they were detonated, jet fuel burns at 900 degrees, but steel only melts at 2800.
it served as a pretext to go to war and sell bullets.
but dont worry we live many lifetimes and this is a slow karma.
just love and compassion.
oh yeah, and gst--
go surfing today.

- we were up there on a 3 metre swell and it was just closing out and not even worth the paddle-dont bother all you will get is a 2 metre ride and a stiff back
