I was on baby sitting duties today. Got the call up from a mate this morning but couldn't surf. Watched him out alone on his 7'0 struggle to get into a few what looked like 8 to even 10 foot sets from where I was. No one around. Except Nick's little bro and his camera.

Surfed a spot yesterday pumping and only 3 of us out for like an hour in the arvo. Where is everyone? Must have gone away for Easter. Few spots working today with hardly any crowd.

Had a quick paddle early this morning (down your way Braithy ... dog park ?) prior to dropping the cheese and her mother off at the railway station. Anyway after delivering the ladies ... I mooched along the highway ... down to South Tweed for another errand before doing the loop past Snapper through to Kirra. Well pickle me grandmother ... lucky I didn't want to accommodate the vehicle ... not a vacant car park within cooee of the beach. Holiday weekends and swell ... happy fcuking easter cuts.

It'll be another early assault tomorrow to lessen the crowd factor ... bit further south this time ... not too far though ... tide permitting.

Nah straight east - fair few closeouts in the mix but there was one cracker every 2 sets at least. Plenty of paddling to stay on the spot.

Wonky super fast kirra this morning before a thousand scabs who'd given up on battling the sweep drifted down from the superbank.

My buddy sent me a photo of a mid north nsw point that was every part of triple overhead this morning

Yeah Newcastle area has been big, seen a few boards broken yesterday. The size unusually didn't keep the crowds down, everyone's 'avin' a go. :-D-:

Actually ... Kirra was looking somewhat enticing on the drive by ... mid morning with a bit more water under it ... didn't watch it for longer than it took to round the bend though.

it had a day of days look to it this morning. stupidly crowded but enough true clean-up eight foot sets on the back button to keep the crowd honest.

got a few on the seven-o bonzer pintail before I snapped the leggie.

thanx to old mate for grabbing it off the rocks.

got a foot full of sea urchins on the way in. Skip was there with cold beers. genius.

sister flew down. had the whole day jammed full of easter family and kid type stuff. so didn't get a go-out. the small window of time didn't allow for a hunt down or travel to anywhere plausible unfortunately. :|

only had 10 mins up my sleeve to spare for a quick swing by and get a look at what was going down. very solid lines pouring in thru maroubra. north end had a left hander running thru in the shape of a mack truck. formidable raw energy with nothing stand in its way. it was absolutely piling in.

nobody out. nobody. the paddle out looked futile or impossible, and the rock off there's a thing of life and death on days like that.

pic doesn't show up the size, and without anyone out there it was hard to tell. but it looked at least triple overhead. maybe 4times overhead or bigger on a couple that came thru.

Went for a walk from Mona Vale to Turimetta and back this arvo. This bloke was the only one out. Bailed just in time on this one.

Watched it awhile, not as good as what you saw. Heartbreakingly doable except been unfit from injuries plus lazy for a year now, that rockoff would've stopped me anyway, and being sixty now has psyched me the wrong way for the meantime.

Banks have been rearranged in a great way. Hollow 4 footers, light winds, super fun surf.

Whereabouts Channels? I hit the Manly strip early for some smaller fun ones before it disappeared altogether but I'm thinking there might have been some bigger (& better) ones further up the coast.

this morning, wanda thru greenhills had some fun 4-5ft walls tearing along. running up to 100 metres on the good ones. some sections of the wave allowed drawn out top-to-bottom type arcing. and cutbacks into the reform on a few of them. the bonzer was perfect for it.
