Very disappointed with this “event” so far

Surfed a nice sandbank with a few mates, head height and hollow, real happy surfing my small board for the first time in 8 months. 47 degrees on the beach, lot of burnt feet.

Didn't have your parasol?
I broke my vampire hours rules today and went out in the arvo when the sun was still up. It burns!

Farm with Mrs beerfan. Should've taken my 9'2" single fin but got a decent one on my mid length. Party wave with Mrs beerfan and she got up and stayed up. Nice morning

Got one good one at Tama this arvo from out the back through to the Shorey. Pretty frustrating generally but that one made it worthwhile.

Mid-south maroubra. South swell was dominant over the east. Shifty and hard to pick off but some screamers in the mix. Steep jacking drops and slamming hard on the inside bank. Lots of
waves sectioning out but a few bowling runners.

wooo solid thick surf all through today, differing winds

E swell definitely had the muscle here, lots of S bump but the E sets hit like they meant it

insane amounts of sand shifted today......some of it in surprising ways, in terms of being a general accretive as opposed to erosive trend.



some of the sand looks.......just insane.

When are you coming up to pick up those fins Carroll? The next month might be a good time.

I remember shearer coming out with some babble about how the banks in northern nsw are better to sydney because the sand grains are a different size therefore pack down harder.

I've been loving the lack of crowds out at Steve's point. Been going for 1 hour surfs and scoring more waves than I usually do in 2 out there. And all sets.

What do you mean Loof.

That is a simple fact. Do some research before you try and be a goon on the internets.

The sand in WA is really fine, guessing around half or a third the size of the sand in Sydney. But I never surf beach breaks so can't comment any further

I can think of three adjacent beaches on the mid north coast that offer radically different wave setups, with three distinct sand types.

Haven't taken it back out there. It loves flatty though.
