Week crowdFew surfers
watch your car leave it open if possible, if you find this place try to keep it a secret and keep crowd levels down, The easiest place in the world to get barelled. 1) Pipe is not a secret spot so don't get indignant re crowds (don't expect uncrowded weekends and arvos) 2) Does not hold above 8ft or it 'toilet bowls' out (rock shelf setup with 50m (max) rides) 3)Local indigenous are cool if respected (like everywhere else in the world) 4) Does have a short punchy right for the nat. footers. 5) Best on a 4-5ft E.SE swell that u can backdoor into the main shelf from the outside peak (I think it's called learners) 6) 2 biggest standouts there will be Richo and that local goatboater (for sheer balls alone)... and a couple of local indig's look as comfy as Michael Ho at Backdoor (Hawaii).
Blackrock can only described with one word "magic". This place is what dreams are made of. Once you have surfed here on a good day it will never leave youre mind

Aussie Pipe - I think anyone should be able to surf anywhere, as long as they show respect to the place and the locals.
I live at Angourie and some of the locals are heavy on tourists surfing there and have punch ups over waves.
There is really no need for that.
I have surfed aussie pipe a few times, and for the thieves your turn will come, carma will get you. Whether your surfing there or have your car parked at Snapper Rocks where the junkies will break into your car. So please HAVE RESPECT WHOEVER YOU ARE. THANK YOU

Contest? - I heard that there is a contest at Pipe on Saturday, on the 7th. Is this true? Cause I don't want to go down if there is one on.

Way to many Lids!!! - This place is way over crowded with blow in lid riders that think they own the place..... The local crew of bodyboarders are cool (Morgan,Corey,Howie,the Quinn bros etc) and i'm sure they agree when i say leave your ego at home and bring your respect!!!!
