 Israel

un fit!!! - Not bad waves, peaking out back and then re-forming on the inside, 8-14 people out and a couple of goatboats.  The waves were OK, but I was soooo unfit that it was quite painful.

Not a surf trip, but if there are any waves, I'll try and get wet.  Had good conditions here last year at about the same time.

Surf harmony in the Holy Land - Since 1974 my local break Tel-Baruch (Tel-Ba or TB) has gone from a f...... shit-hole to sheer bliss & harmonious surfing amongst the locals & any visiting "guests". The quality & consistency of the waves have improved "beyond your wildest dreams". Water is crystal clean & the beach/parking facilities are "ucla" (great). Like our occasional jap surfer ("occasional" - over the last 10-12 years) & our new Aussie guest, just join in & enjoy rippin with some really cool Israelis (especially the Xtreme surf-chicks - extremely fearless, modest & REALLY, REALLY so beautiful!)

Surfboard hire around Ashdod? - Hello!

I may be heading to Ashdod at the beginning of 2010 to work for several short periods at a time.
I was wondering if you know of a place that rents out surfboards in Ashdod?
I normally ride a 6' 3'', but really any kind of shortboard would be fine in case there are waves when I have a day off here and there.
Would very much appreciate any tips you have on board hire or surfing in that region in general.
cheers for now,
Stefan

to the australian... - living in israel is a fight: the heat, 3 years in the army, war, terror, jewish mothers... and in israel politeness is a nasty word in general.
surfing in israel is a fight as well: no waves, to many surfers with or without the waves, good spots are being destroyed by massif so called development, pollution etc. SO
be kind with us the time we kick old aggressive habits. and anyway don't mess with an israeli - he will come back with his army gang of falafel eaters and brothers and cousins (everyone in IL is a "brother")...
