Dolphins or stingrays....but yeah, you would have to think only dolphins would have the calorific pay-off for the hunt.
But it would take just about zero energy to chomp half a dozen humans. Maybe digesting such a bony low-fat prey is the problem? I hope so.

Nah, some pretty big Rays out there and easy prey for a GW.

The Bra…..desperate days. Very, very ordinary….would have stayed out longer if I had a hat…too hot.

Conditions today didn't justify getting sun on the skin, that's for sure.

Speaking of which.....I don't get how people feel comfortable surfing in those bucket surf hats. I've got one and it's really handy for being on boats or other water related activities but shite to surf in. I've got an O&E cap that's pretty great. Short brim that doesn't wipe all the zinc off your nose every time you duck dive like other caps. Still a bit annoying but doable if the surfs not too large and powerful. I avoid caps unless it's fierce. Would have worn mine yesterday however if it was in the car.

Yeah.

I have a bucket hat. Only use it if I surf in the middle of the day. Have to tip it back when paddling though or it interferes with my sight along the wave before I get up.
Mostly I surf early morning so it's not necessary.

What a hoax of a swell this is thus far.

Some fun full ones at dawn, it was trying to do something but just didn't have the grunt.

Correct. I had dreamed of surfing the exotic location for years. Tales of "rip bowls" and "fast little runners" seemed like an impossible fantasy. So close....so much better than Bondi. Alas, it was all just a fantasy conjured up by a master storyteller.
I must return, crestfallen, to the newly appreciated barrels of Bondi.

If you still can’t figure out where to surf and when after all these years then you’re a waste of space and you should simply give up and dedicate all your leisure time to destroying yourself on cheap Aldi liquor.

Today’s there’s some fun bowls about. Just about to head out now.

Plenty of peaks about. Water bloody warm. And bugger all people about. Pleasant.

Tama got really crowded. Threatening to break right through from out the back but rarely connected.

Maroubra. Softer but better waves up the north end. More turns, more face, but shifting. Punchier and faster down the south end and less crowded. Probably bagged about 20 waves.

pleasant.
