Had the best surf I've had in ages today......which isn't really saying much...... but it was good. Was going to go out at the Nth end of the beach I went to but just when I was about to get changed I noticed a huge bait ball out the back. Seagulls and other seabirds going crazy. Either a small whale or a very large dolphin was plowing into it and it looked like there were a few sharks from the way the seagulls were acting. Then a set came through and closed out the beach.
Decided on the south end after that. Never saw another set anywhere near that big.

Wow , real long period . Had an hour for lunch and home was sending bombs every 10-15 minutes . Only managed 5 waves , but they were quality to the sand waves lefts and rights . Right shame too as if there was more sand on the beach it would have been completely mental given that a lot of three footers went through to shore unbroken . It started to recover when we had those nor easters 2 1/2 weeks so ago but the return of the west has dragged the sand away again .

….this was pushing off the wall not diving in.

...running out of breath underwater hasn’t been an issue. Not too bad for a 62 y/o who surfs irregularly.

No sharks, was seals chasing the fish. Lifeguards had a drone up scoping it out, had a chat with them as I got out.
That was a whale, no large dolphin lol.
Fun waves, was fairly solid earlier on, some nice ones.

I thought it looked like a whale. The ball seperated at one stage and half moved right into the line up. What type of fish were they?
Yeah, I had a ball......not a bait ball however.

The whole day had taken a sinister turn by that point, like an undecanted shiraz .

So glassy this morning, swell period a bit hit & miss on the banks but pretty good when the right ones came through.

A bit more crowded than yesterday and got choppy earlier. I got three rides I was happy with though. Even did a few turns on some........and a cutback.......and a nose ride.

Real hit and miss this morning as the tide filled in . Got some good ones and had been waiting ages for my last one only for me to kook style it on take off and fall . Oh well , proceeds to paddle in , talks to the crew watching - mercifully none of them gave it to me for my indiscretion .

Pretty flat today. Not too worried. I'm a bit stiff and sore from too much surfing this week as it is.

There's only one guy in the club who's older than me.
And coincidentally he made the board I'm now riding.

Your equipment is crucial.
