I got so Puerto Escondidoed today. One wave, bit of a crazy right, pulled in, made it through a Go-Pro view section then it shut down, and I hit the bottom three times

Only issue I had was the strength of the wind mid afternoon. Nice Se swell getting into my local. After being dead flat at 6am.

Bronte looked unusually good at about 4:45 today when I drove down for a look after work. Actually barrelling over the reef on the higher tide which you don't see that often out there. A few got poleaxed on the windy takeoff.

Would have been a good day to take off I guess.

Only got to see it yesterday, and imagined the stoke up and down the coast. But the direction !!! Feck ! from nobo, above the rsl, at I guess the peak yesterday about noon?, i was somewhat taken aback at how nth the swell was. Dead set straight lines at 90 degrees to the beach, not a bees dick less , running along and unleashing onto icebergs pool and the rocky shoreline running south from there.
That was ghey.

El rancho, the surfing may be a bit on the crud side but I guess being that the boards and surfing are back in the mid 70s, we'll have to give a bit of credit to them hey. We can't all be as good as the legend Mr Lennox Shearer can we?

I think that's McTavish on the red board.
Funny how everyone think they would have been ripping the bag out of it in those days. A bit like using a computer really. Piss easy once someone else has worked out how to do it for you.

Didn't surf today. Decided to take the racing board for a paddle up to Newport instead given the perfect conditions. Came across a shark feeding frenzy just off Mona Vale. Pretty spectacular to watch. Fish busting up going nuts as the men in grey suits just rounded em up and smashed through them. Felt pretty safe watching from the sidelines on the big board. I thought I was David fkknc Attenborough. Guys surfing further in had no idea.

:shock: we were out half way between MV and Warriewood around 6.30. Had a stack of fish around us and could see birds going crazy just outside the break. Sharks did come up in conversation a coupla times.

Bondi. V Crowded.
Got acouple eventually.
Best was the last wave which is always nice as long as it doesn't make you go out for another one which inevitably never eventuates.

Nice conditions.

Yeh BA that was exactly where I'm talking about, just before 7:30 right where those fish were going nuts off the back of kooks terrace. The Noah's were going nuts too. There were a few guys watching from the cliff top so I would think they could see em.

A few hardy souls out at the Southie at Coogee. Didn't see anyone catch anything and the wind would blow your nipples off before you could get into your wetsuit. Probably freeze your nuts off too if you weren't quick changing.
