2ft fun fullish Mollymook. Can be such a fun wave on the right board.

First go at the Long Reef Bombie today, with mate and guide Joel Menz. After getting smashed on the paddle out, finally made it to the backline, in what can only be described as challenging conditions. 6ft+ straight south swell, big lumps in the faces and a very shifty peak that likes to ambush you.

Managed to get one ok one before being caught inside and having my brand new 8’8 surf board snapped in two. Massive bummer.

Outside of that it was really good fun being out there in the maelstrom soaking up the primal feel of it.

Loofy has longer, shinier hair. Nearly a mullet.

South end maroubra. Only waist to chest high but some fun peaks. Wackable left bowl running back towards the reef, and a fast walling right. Surfed the twinny with the deep single concave. Easily the fastest small wave board I’ve ever surfed.

I had a little splash and giggle at one of the beachies this morning.

Surfed with a bloke, mate of mine, who helped pull tadashi out.
It fcuked him up for quite a while.
PTSD.
Quit surfing.
Really blew out.

This was a guy who was ultra keen, shaper, martial arts etc etc.


I saw him this morning he looked like a scrub bull coming off the Barkeley Tableland after the wet season. Huge, ripped.
He was shredding. It was really good to share the space with him.

We were surfing where a 4m white was tagged a couple of days before and were trying to decipher the mystery of why the big whites seem to be around here in summer. It makes no sense on the face of it.
Big temperate water fish that preys on mammals skulking around in piss warm water.

No theories here.

Dolphins or stingrays....but yeah, you would have to think only dolphins would have the calorific pay-off for the hunt.

I don't think White pointers bear thinking about too much. There doesn't seem to be anything predictable about their patterns or behaviour.
Mate who worked in the Gulf in NT used to see them occasionally, which everyone will argue is BS, but it's not.
Shark plane is circling out off my beach right now as I type, a daily event.
Couple of fun things on this FB page if you scroll down, big bitey eating a Hammerhead, and further down a 100Kg Bronzey turned into a 50Kg Bronzey.
