Waist to head high gutless and clean this morning. Good enough for me and my dodgy knee ( haven't surfed in a month :( ). Great to paddle out at 5am for the first time in a while.

Alexandra Headland. 3 foot. 5 foot faces on some of the sets. But heaps of push. People struggling to paddle out. Untidy, but lots of waves. Fun fun fun. Quite a few people watching.

Finally some NE swell on the NB's this morning. Clean early too. Warm water and boardies.

Big bad Bondi you Fcukers. And I got a few waves in the crowd which included Nippers and Bronte to Bondi swimmers.

Also did a great somersault finish on a bodysurfing shoot early this morning. This landed me in waist deep water rather than being projected straight onto the dry sand by the wicked shorey. 3-)

Had a super fun surf mid morning on my new Pyzel. What an awesome little stick. Did everything and went everywhere I wanted it to without hesitation. Until I creased the fuschia$a believe it or not coming into shore on my gut. Luckily its a very shallow crease and did not go through the stringer. Should be a pretty easy fix but i had to retire the board until fixed.

Yesterday. 2ft beachie and reef in Kiama. Beachie was dredging semi closeouts. Sectioning freight training stuff, but managed to get a nice cover up on one of the more peaky/shouldering ones. The reef was sluggish and marginal but with the odd fun one. Today mid maroubra. A bit patchy at times but some pretty decent steep walling rights coming through, shoulder to head heigh.

The banks aren't good at the moment. They need size and period otherwise it's all a bit shapeless and dead. Also very tide dependant. It can be working one minute, and screwed the next. We need another huge swell or two to shift some sand about.

Scarborough yesterday was as fun as it gets out there. 2-3 ft peaks all the way along the beach...busy, but so much choice it didn't really feel like it.

Been out of the water for months with injury, so it was a very satisfying surf. Surf satisfaction meter: 8/10.

3-4 ft (albeit a tad inconsistent) sets and offshore winds rolling through the middle of the day. Take that in December all day long. :)

Had super fun surf yesterday with nice clean 3-5 foot waves with some power to them. It was inspiring to surf with Mike Esposito (former South African pro and big wave hellman). As he heads towards 60 years old Mike was still ripping and dominating . If I can surf half as good as him when I'm pushing 60 I will be a happy man. It was inspiring to watch this guy just charge and then rip the bag out of every wave. The bigger the wave the more Mike rips.

Wow Mike Esposito there's a blast from the past. Saw him out in the water quite a few times in Sth. Africa, great surfer.
How did you know it was him Natho?

Ive known Mike for years through the local boardriders comp scene and surf with him a fair bit. He is one of the nicest blokes you could ever meet. Just waiting for my invite on one of his yearly Billabong trips to Tavarua. Bastard

Jeezus Natho, have you become the 'fat bastard' of Mike Myers notoriety? :twisted:

Dragging down the JJF monicker so soon?
