Waves all up and down the coast again today. My local looked pretty ordinary but I punted on it improving with the incoming tide.
It did. 8)

Surfed alone for 30 minutes..............tick
Murky water..........................half tick (I could just see my feet :wink: )

loving my new huie quad....still not sold on quads btw :idea:

it seems.....when i get a decent one and surf hard off my back foot

it's super super fast and can do anything 8)
My opinion on quad performance type boards is that they're only really good in 3ft+ waves. Shithouse in the small weak stuff unless they're in a board made for the small shit...like a fish etc.

I ride my quad over here in 3ft+ but usually ride a thruster biscuit that I made for anything smaller. I don't really need a fish here because there's usually enough power on the smaller days to avoid riding one...on saying that, another board in the New Guinea quiver couldn't hurt!

The quads are also very fast and it took me a while to learn to control the speed (in other words control my surfing) as I was often running too far down the line too quick. I love mine here because we often get very fast racey sections that require that additional speed.

Going for an early before work, fingers crossed!

Faaark. Cummmon. Didn't anyone south of tweed get something to gloat about?
Sydneys copped a solid bit of swell past two days.

I only got to sneak a drve by view of Tama on way to extra work I've picked up past couple of days. From what I saw it wasn't for the faint hearted. Or no lineup for old men. Noticed a jet ski zooming about there late this arvo. Lifeguard patrol I suspect.

So, anyway, if you consider driving tourists around the harbour in a speedboat and excitedly taking them acrossthe heads in rolling nor'easter lines, pulling up at south head and ooing and ahing at the slabs unfurling on the ledge there surfing....that's all I could manage. I know .. Bit of a stretch.

Gotta be happy cruising around Sydney Harbour and getting paid for it, Skip. 8)

ahhhhhhhh, peak day Wednesday in a decent swell! lovely!

take off, fast drop, drive hard off bottom - rip calf muscle [again] - stay on feet, nurse roundhouse cutty, see rip bowl forming, get into possie, standup straight , pitted, duck heaving lip on the way out, pull off the back.

best standup barrel of the year so far! woo hoo!

the peak was twice the size of the point yesterday, but both were fun.
nature is a language. can't you read?
if you spend your life looking behind you, you don't see what's up front...

tama was closeouts, watched for half an hour, only saw one ride and that was someone going straight to get in. even that didn't work out too well. bronte, nothing. wrong swell for the bombie. while nappydripper was off charging ours, i beat up a bus load of disabled kids at maroubra (in the spirit of when in rome) before selling their teacher a foily of third-rate weed sprayed with mortein. then went and sat on south head waving at you skipp to give me a tow-in in honour of the dunbar.

Went for a roadtrip today. Was tossing up between the Bra and going further afield where the banks are better and the crowds are smaller.
Best decision ever.

Wow. Just wow. Words fail me.
Too stoked to do it justice.

I'm going to stick my neck out and say best beachbreak surf I've ever had on a standup.

I slept in today. Too small. Saving myself for Sunday. :wink:
My wife and I went over to Happy Valley, bought coffee and muffins from the kiosk and found a shady seat for an hour or so for morning tea. All very peaceful and civilised. That should put me in the good books for a week or so. 8)

fuschia me. Four hours of surfing, saw a shit load of pumping waves yet no matter where i would paddle, what i would do, how patient i got i fuschia was constantly out of position today. Was infuriating.

Anyone else on the northern beaches get a similar treatment or did i unknowingly run over a dog or something and im getting kicked in the ass by huey for it?

Only upside was at most there was only 2 or 3 guys around me for 50m+ and the majority of the time i was alone. Got about 4 good waves, 1 an hour and only made 3 barrels on a day that looked like, from shore and when i was out there that there was millions to be had.

Still, 4 hours in the sun and did catch ALOT, am totally surfed out and back home with a reduced price iced coffee and sushi.

Shared a session with Baldy and Taj today.. When those two are out it gives you confidence that you're at the best spot available.. Was a bit of a buzz to be on the same bank as KS and it was funny he didn't need to drop in on anyone 'cause everytime he paddled for one everyone else stopped.. :D
