First surf for a few days. Zippy little rights in between close outs. A few fun ones then a few drop ins and thought I would just paddle out wide and catch a left into shore. After waiting a while I scored a cracker of a set right through on the right. One of the only big ones that held up today. Stoked.

Yes, sadly I'm always around on RealSurf these days - a landlocked househusband for now. What is one to do? The question occurs to me every day. But things could be worse! I can't complain. A shred of dignity can still be found in it, some vague sense of purpose, even a flash of joy and wonder. You have to laugh. One day I will surf again. And it's good to hear from you, Laz - why, next time I'm in Australia I just might look you up!

South Maroubra. 3-4 foot, with enough shape and punch to keep things interesting.

South Maroubra again for the late arvo session. A slightly muscled up version of yesterday surf. Only a handful of people out . plenty of waves to go around.

As I was first paddling out I had to rescue a Pommy booger stuck in the rip. He was waving for help saying he’s been paddling for half an hour trying to get in.

Didn’t have to do much. all I told him was to paddle at a right angle straight into the bank. then after a few seconds he was right

Me too.
Supposed to be onshore dribble but was gentle offshore and short period, peaky waves which ran a lot further than expected.

In and hour and a half I caught every wave I paddled for.
One guy paddled past me and said, "Trev. Just STOP IT!"

But he was smiling. 😇

Good stuff, Trev. Only downer was paddling a bit further out and realising there was a pool of poo out there. Must have come from a boat. Reminded me of the Bondi of old. Fcuk it used to be putrid. Literally condoms and toilet paper floating around out there on a bad day in a NEster. Water would be brown.
