It's solid here too in spots
we are the angry mob
We read the papers everyday
We like who we like, we hate who we hate
But we're also easily swayed

A beachie on the southern Goldy.
Was a bit Dave Taylor-ish. Large, mean looking, a bit slow and ineffective.
Was good to get the 6'4" widowmaker up to speed and lean into a couple of turns.
The rowing and gym work paid off too, I felt much better than expected.
First surf in a steamer since 2015.

Managed to ram my knee into a steel latch on a large metal gate yesterday, ironically while checking Sandon Point. Left me writhing in agony and hobbling round like a crippled Irishman. I'm hoping it will come good by tomorrow.

Was that excuse in the coastalwatch top 20?

Surfed at Steve's point. Seems like every step I took on the way in, I stood on an urchin. Is there a particular season for them?

it's weird isn't it. I haven't figured out a season except sometimes in winter they are so thick.
