ahh the peak is pretty tidal, at low tide it'll happily break at 3', the bigger it gets the further out it breaks along the rock line. High tide shuts it down mostly. It's sandbank dependent so if the sand sets up badly, it can be shit even when it's breaking

oh no! everyone's welcome out the peak. just v hard to get waves when it's OK. most shitty days now it is the habitat of shearer's favourite type of surfer. 35-50yo recently started or taking it back up again. boy do they get bemused when it suddenly improves and out come all the crew. a lot of slightly woebegone faces, "what happened, why aren't I catching any more waves??"

Good so that means I can go and snake everyone if it's ordinary.

It doesn’t start breaking til it’s three foot. Which immediately disqualifies you.

Whale Bay for a few hours in the middle of the day. Rode my 5-11 quartet home made - was hard to get my back foot on the board after riding an 8-1 the last 3 weeks. However despite my kooky footing I managed a few critical drops on the surge
The inside section from the surge rock was pretty darn fun - just 5 on it. Head high and reeling like a left hand noosa nationals
got better as the hugetide dropped.
Looking forward to the pulse tomorrow evening next few days of very light wind and 2.5m @ 15 seconds

Look, OK, cards on the table. I fcuked my father up the arse. It was in the car immediately following my mother's funeral and on the way to the wake.

Had the wave of my life at Outside Indicators. Love that stretch of points.

Head high plus sets mid morning as the incoming full moon tide added some push, light side-off breeze, not crowded. Only got a few, pulled back on some when I should have gone.

Waiting for the tide to drop, the wind is aleady offshore

First surf in a month, it can only get better.

Excellent afternoon surf, fcuk all surfers, offshore, regular overhead sets. Hollow and fast as the tide dropped, hit the reef hard a few times.

No more surf reports from me is a good idea I think.

Lil play surf in a quieting E and SE swell combo, felt so much like autumn should feel

I really need surfing right now. Am head down in a very non surfing thing and it feels like simple relief.

I can't even get my head around this autumn at all.

I keep waiting for it to get good, and it doesn't, and instead of lowering expectations and getting the job done, I keep waiting on the sidelines for it to get good. And it doesn't. Instead of surfing yesterday I sat on the Point and watched Rasta out there by himself for an hour and talked shjitt with this very nice man.
Haven't even pulled that Ghost out from under the house all fcuking autumn.
More blown out short/mid period shite today. It's made the banks a mess too.

It's like being heckled by seagulls.

Yesterday margin but clean cronulla point. Some fun wackable bowls off first reef. Today garie beach - magic overhead peaks with decent punch. 6’3 80’s thruster again for the win.

Did you tell Rasta you were unimpressed with his swagger?

Send it to me, steve. I'm tempted to try it in less than perfect surf too. Just because I don't want to leave it like yours.
