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.

Yep. You would often only get an afternoon or half a day before the northerlies came back. Still the same I guess.

Back in the morning of 6/10/17 I had a surf in the howling southerly as the "dangerous surf conditions" produced a few 5ft faces at south facing Bondi. Disappointing but got one okay one in the dross. Those were the days.

I was on the east side this morning. Looked at the Bra, fat and burgerish + boardriders meant brekkie looked a better option.

Seriously, seriously crowded on the NB's. Must be close to 200 out at Curly.

Probably about the same at Bondi. Actually handled the size relatively well. Too crowded though. Managed to snare a couple of set waves but it was a battle.

North corner of a Royal National Park beachie at dawn. Three foot plus, pretty punchy but fairly jumbled. Started to sort itself as the tide filled in a bit and the offshore wind picked up

Longy was crowded too, plus some aggro in the water. Not bad but pretty all over the place when I went out. An hour later the crowd had backed off and it'd sorted itself out a bit. Decent albeit fat lefts and rights.
