0.1/10

It had nothing. 0.1 because I might have got a wave, but it may have been in spring

Steven, don't go jumping the shark. There is no such thing as 11 outa 10. Thats the equivalent of 110%, and that my friend only exists in bad sporting cliches.

Maybe it's 11 Iggy standard.

Prithee Steve, more specifics for a North Carolinian?

Shit from a surfing perspective, only got in about 4 times.

Ups and downs in life.

I exaggerated a bit, probably surfed on around 10 occasions, half on mid lengths, half on short boards, but a full size mal would have been the correct choice. Booring to the max
Ulus this morning at 7am was waist high, 2 knots onshore, lips crumbling, no-one out. Best surf I've seen in 3 months!

Absolute shit. Barely surfed. Relentless SE winds take out almost all options. The remaining ones are an effort to get to and you'll not be the only one making that effort. Family shit has taken up most of my weekends which hasn't helped. Just had a week off and headed inland for alpine bush-walking. As expected, I missed a couple of good days

Had it all Offy, started with a week long, long range E swell in Dec and finished with a 2 week cyclone swell. In between it came from everywhere.
it had size, power, perfection, amazing sandbanks, blue warm water and just tons and tons of excellent to epic surf.

never seen anything like it.

Ok, been some good moments but the banks are just weird at the minute. Good conditions are generally not relating to great waves.

That's a very good question. I'm coming to the end of a period of much fcukery.

2 paid jobs and 1 volunteer.
Wife traveling a lot and other childminders otherwise occupied.
Sick grandparents and associated care.
Mates that needed looking after/cheering up.
Helping another with a business.

Was on the water a bit more regularly, but fishing or paddling.
Had a bunch of fun catching small mackerel on 5-10g raiders and a 2-4kg rig.
