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.

Mid-north end maroubra. Four plus and heaps solid. Lots of shutdowns but now and again there'd be a good peaking grinder throwing up a length of wall. Surfed the new 6'4 single. Handled the conditions well. Heaps of hold and drive down the line.

Super rippy on the left at Bondi. Rip changing direction constantly. If you could be in the right place at the right time it was okay.

well it was fun as fcuk up here yesterday, 4-6' in the morning, declining later in the arvo, and a really magical period not long before sunset - the wind dying and a bit of surf mist descending on the area, super pretty clean lefts and rights. The sort of daylight saving evening that would have driven shearer insane

When did NC become a poetry hater? I once asked him in the Ask NC thread if poetry was dead and he waxed lyrical about it, seemed to be really into it. His latest, above, is a tad too Mystic Surfer for me. The title had me fooled into thinking it might be a more punky, modern.
