Big again today. Bondi Pool is closed.
I think all of the Eastern Suburbs turned up at the one manageable spot yesterday arvo. It wasn't as packed as the morning but it was still too packed for that spot.

I've seen a channel islands board snap when a small dog farted one suburb over.

Great shapes, terrible glassing.
Mine is developing spider web crack lines in multiple spots. Still no pressure dings on the deck though.

Surfed Cloudbreak again on Monday. Not my first choice. Managed to catch a couple of uneventful peaks before scoring a chattering screamer right through. Snapped the rental board on the next wave. That was an expensive surf.
How did you snap it?

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

A 2mm steamer was all I ever had for Newcastle. Was fine for all but the strong westerly wind days when I got cold after about an hour Surely being two hours north of Sydney doesn't make that much of a difference to the water temperature. Some blokes in Sydney were already in steamers back in April.

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

My quik ag47 is warm and flexible By Crikey it's got a tight codpiece, but Mine is a nice snug fit. Took the AG47 out for the first time today and it passed the duck dive test. Based on one session, I'll say that It is by far the best wetsuit I have ever owned. It is as flexible as a certain blonde...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Went out in a springy with a 1mm top underneath it. A frustrating session ended quite well with my wave of the day on my backhand.

So Quiksilver's top of the line model went from Cypher -> AG47 -> Highline
