praise the lord - i actually had a decent surf. Peaky, waist to chest high, low tide, glassy and not too crowded. Plenty of good rides today. It felt like autumn,

I was away in Hervey Bay for a Nippers carnival today but last Sunday in a howling NE'ster I got 3 foot (head high and a bit) low tide peaks at the Spit at 3.00 in the afternoon on the the tail end of that last swell.
We folk from the North will head South when it's worthwhile but the Mexicans just complain about the Northerly.
Are you hearing me Donweather?
Difference is there was a swell happening last weekend But quality was lacking. Since then nuthin

Well I've just had the worst surf I've ever had at Manly. Thought I'd drive over for something to do. Didn't bother looking. Just went out. Totes crappy.....also putrid water and a bit cool. DeeWhy and Curly looked similar. Closing out and sucking on the shallow banks.

Wait a minute ... you had a chance to surf somewhere other than Bondi and you chose to go to Manly?

Just finished at Freshie on the strength of this recommendation. For Freshie, it was actually pretty fun.

Went for a swim this arvo.....everywhere looked better than Manly earlier.....still crap but better. You always have to allow for the overview when looking at Tama. Waves always look better from a height.

When you drive around the corner into the north end of maroubra, angle and size always looks better from the top.

Went for an afternoon paddle. Big claim for the second collision with a softie in the last few days.
