    Hi I am Danoz one of the site founders.

    I am from Sydney and mainly surf the Northern Beaches, sometimes I travel to the Central Coast and have a surf with my uncle up at Wamberal. I have surfed for as long as i can remember although lately I have been fairly busy and just find it hard to get down the beach for a wave daily, so generally at the moment I hit the waves on a weekend or an afternoon when i get the chance.

    Oh I am 23 and currently studying a degree at Uni. I think that about covers it for now.

    Thought this could help break the ice.

    Let us know where you are from, how you found the site. Anything you care to add about yourself please do so.

    Welcome and Enjoy the time at SurfAus

    Thanks :D

    Bungan is an awesome break. One of my parents lives just over the hill from it in Newport. If you have surfed there at all over the last 10 years you more than likely have seen me, I used to spend every afternoon until dark in the waves at either Whaley, Newport or Bungan :)

    I found this site thru a link from SL.

    What does SL stand for btw

    Hey Joe and welcome to surfaus.

    Good to see you're getting into surfing :) As for the transportation... The easiest way its probably roof racks... at BigW or Kmart you could pick up a cheapish set for around 30 bucks and getting some okkey straps or some other form of tie to secure your board... I have seen some other types of racks (soft staps) which have some strapping that loops around the car (over the roof and then comes in above the doors and through the interior roof... I am a bit sceptical of these for Malibu's.... Best thing to do would be to head down to your local autobarn or supercheap auto (look in the yellow pages) and have a look around at those sorts of thing, personally I would go roof racks.

    One thing i will say is, your Malibu will (might) get damaged on the roof from the strapping and pressure of holding it down, so i would definately invest in a board cover (not one of the silver more expensive ones) but one of the soft bags (usually have a stripped appearance) as they do the job, prevent wax from getting on your car and protect the board whilst travelling and storing at home, although if a brick or heavy object were to come in contact with it, it really would not do to much, however for small impacts its perfect and quite all right to protect your Malibu on the way to the surf :)

    Hi I'm Terry
    I'm at Caloundra Sunshine Coast. Been teaching my kids 6, 8 & 9 to surf the last few months and am getting back on a board myself after a 28 year absence. Why the wait? Someone stole my board in 1980 and I never got around to replacing it.

    Hey and Welcome Bishop - there might be some locals not sure - perhaps post some pics or a small blur about your surfing grounds to see if anyone is from around there :)
