Wave Watch – Photos of Local Breaks

Here are some shots of a wave called Impossible’s or known lovingly as “Posso’s” to the locals. Off the beaten track near Victoria’s famed West Coast. Posso’s is a great wave for experienced and beginner surfers (depending on the conditions of course).

We’ve recently gotten our Tumblr up and running, so send us your local break and we’ll put them up here and on our awesome Ola Tumblr! (Don’t worry all locations will remain secret! Unless you don’t mind a few more lady surfers at your break!)

Tell Me Again…

I have a full time job which means two things

1) I can’t surf during the week

2) Weekend waves are usually packed with weekly workers just like me.

One of my best friends lives down the coast and is enjoying her university lifestyle. Every time I speak to her, she tells me how amazing her surf was that day. I’m happy for her, but I can’t help but feel like this:

Ever had this feeling?

Real or Man Made- Which Do You Prefer?

Have you ever been in a wave pool? Or surfed on Flow Rider? For those who haven’t heard of it, a Flow Rider is an artificial wave that’s usually super expensive and with a line a mile long!

Here’s a video of surfer Sophie Hellyer surfing a man made wave in Dubai.

Or you can watch the lovely roxy ladies surf some delightful natural ripples.

So what’s better?  An au natural wave or a man made tube?

Tell us your thoughts in the comments! 🙂

Stoked to Surf

When did you catch your first wave? Were you instantly addicted?

This is Živa, she recently went surfing for the very first time. She loved it so much that 2 weeks in the water just wasn’t enough!

4 days after she came home from her very first surf trip, she booked her next one straight away.

We understand the feeling. Once you start surfing it’s hard to think about much else!

Good luck on your surf journey Živa!

Thanks to deepsoulsurfer for sharing Živa’s story. If you would like a photo or story posted, send us an email or contact us via Facebook.

This is why Mal riding is awesome. You can surf even when it’s 1ft! These sessions are always super fun and there is rarely anyone else out there!

Oh how I miss St. Augustine, FL! Such an awesome sleepy surf town. Summer cruisin’ log style. Vids by Drew Miller, and congrats to Justin Q. for making the finals last week in Huntington.
