Nice waves at Bondi.....But the crowds. Not actually that crowded but the sheer lunacy. Consistently saw people just trying to paddle for waves that people were riding. Sometimes two or three people. First wave I got a girl dropped in and kept riding till it hit the shallow inside bank. Then she said..." You didn't mind me catching the wave with you, did you?"
I'd been waiting 10 minutes for a wave.
Managed to snare a few. The best that could be hoped for.

Yep, 2mm Syncro. Feels like I'm wearing nothing at all, nothing at all, nothing at all.

But seriously, great suit at that price.

Nulla beachies. Pretty crap really. Straight backwashy and no real defined banks. Kinda starting to improve just now with the dropping tide.

Checked voodoo on first light but swerved it. A sizeable and solid
swell but the west wind causing it to shift back and forth across the take off zone, unpredictable and looking sketchy as shit.

super fun today on the lower tide, pulsing on and off slightly fractured s swell, clean winds, banks slightly re set by the NE through the week. Felt like the end of the winter sth pulses. Seasons in flux.

Very checkered conditions. Lumpy, bumpy and the water was filthy. Don't know why. It hasn't been raining. It was like they had flushed the local sewerage pipes out.. Back to the Bondi of old.

I've only missed surfing two days since I got back. Not great but always something.

For the first time since 1966.
Fun.

1966 Trev, you must have seen a few things change since then.

Er yep.
Drove up in my first car, a 48/215 Holden (FX). Surfed at Alex and managed to upset the locals so moved on to Noosa. Probably a half dozen out. Surfed for hours.
No legrope of course. :-o

Today, not too crowded at gumtrees and got a couple through to johnsons. But only about two and a half hours.

Oh. And these days I'm good with the Alex locals too.

Nice one Trev. They would have been some good sessions at Noosa.

I surfed Noosa for the first time in 1974. Also surfed Ti Tree overhead with two mates in about 1978.

I surfed tamarama during the hsc trials in 1981 all to myself and got the best tube I’ve ever had on a borrowed single fin.

Kirra with three guys in the water as well after a storm came through and the wind swung offshore while we were checking out the Goodtime Shop.

We lived for those storms in 1964 and 5, after school and several days of northerlies.
