I think we were supposed to watch this and think "legend" but I thought it was a bit haunting, even scary
I found that incredibly sad, seemed too decent a bloke to be living alone like that.
Is that how he wanted it? Who knows.

Aj, I’ve got a few down here! Just make the Deed for the house out to Mrs Wyre for tax purposes. Seriously, drive down at 5am, you’ll be pulling in at 6, back in time for the morning debrief at 9.25.

Good advice Nick, sorry to hear the news. That situation must be up there for most common way to drown surfing?
It's not really, most people who drown while surfing do so because they suffer a heart attack or hit the bottom and are knocked unconscious.

But there's been a few over the years for sure.

Yeah, who knows. Loneliness can be just as much a problem for even the most popular person who seems to have everything, both socially and materially, as it is for a guy living in a beach side van.

Crankys fav at 6.30 am just 4 guys out
Ruler edged lines marching down the reef
double overhead sets every 10 minutes
The 5.10 quartet was getting a bit chattery as it hit top speed but held in remarkably well

Crowd grew to a dozen after an hour with clean up sets every 30 minutes keeping it real

Nice way to finish the trip , taking one about 200 metres onto the inside reef and straightening out

The guy behind me tried the same and lost 2 fins on the reef

On that last big swell I spent an hour on the cliff top being schooled on the finer points by the guy who surfs it best.

Bingin Mick? Nah, a younger guy in his 30's. He and the local Balinese are so much better than everyone else, they take this seemingly gravity defying high line at times. Same at S, when its big all the various peaks become one hollow fast wave and the peaks are sections that you race.

Fcuken freezing down here today, water temp around 14 I reckon. Regulation 3/2 didn't cut it.

I swear, it's unbelievable.

It must be Concetta Fiorravanti-Wells, the Ice Queen of Bilgola Plateau, preparing the spell that will reincarnate Bronwyn Bishop into the body of Peter Dutton.

I reckon the water was a touch warmer up here, springy suit for sure, rather pleasant
