Yeah there were some fun peaks and bowls about. Nothing powerful but plenty waves coming through.

Was that an ex-Loofy bonzer ?

The swell is building nicely now.

I was on the cliff at first light, all ready for a quiet few hours, but the swell hadn't really hit.

8am and the sets are now overhead, only about 30 on the entire Ulus breaks. Give it another hour or two I reckon

Mid-Narra at dawn. Chest high and stacks of waves. A few shutdowns but the odd gem. Had it to myself for over an hour.

Pretty nice at south end back beach this morning. After some morning sickness it came good right on the low tide, around 8, turned on for an hour or so, then switched off again. Stayed out and it switched on briefly again not long after the northerly messed it up around 10.30am.

Fun as hell. 2-3 foot dunny bowl. Stacks of waves coming through. Great shaped peak and plenty of wall to carve up. Surfed the 6’0 single egg.

Back at Longie for the early. Nowhere near as good as yesterday, tide a bit too low plus a bit of morning sickness from the overnight winds.

Teaching my kids to surf at the moment, and yesterday my 7yo paddled for, caught and rode a wave all the way to the sand.
My 8yo also got up for a few seconds.

Stoke levels are off the charts in out household.

Saturday. missed the early as I had had a shocking night's sleep, and then had to drive past several pumping beachies to man the Wollongong Bunnings BBQ for the Pre School from 8-10am. I tried not to think of the waves pouring in, but suffice to say my heart wasn't in the job at hand. Luckily for me, the family had to attend a party in Sydney so at 10.15am I was at Easties having the fcuking time of my life!

3-4 foot beachies along the whole stretch, just wave after wave coming in.

Outstanding!

This week looking interesting for the point..

I originally posted details about the local conditions, about getting a few good waves then realised I was saying too much and that no one cared anyway, so deleted it.

Well fcuk then...

I've been here just over two weeks and the surf has been mainly head to double and fcuk all people out, consequently I've had more decent waves than anytime in my surfing life, including one of the best waves ever.

Having a quiver of boards that suit me perfectly has really helped as well.

Conditions though are funky it's often onshore. But the winds are light and variable: most days it will go offshore for a few hours and if you are on it you score big time, solo or a handful of surfers.

There's also hours and hours of near empty line-ups, well overhead, light onshore - good reasonably clean conditions by most world standards, but not the perfection surfers here expect.

With the variable winds though every spot on the island is a possibility, so the natural footers are at the dozens of westerly spots instead of the trade wind classics.

The Mt Agung tremors are having an effect on the number of surfers as well no doubt.

Four hour session this morning. Started head and a half, no wind, but a little bumpy, waves ok.

After two hours I was thinking of going in, just sitting at swimming pools, waiting. A double overhead set came swinging in, biggest of the day. Got an absolute screamer half way into the Bingin bay, 300m.

And then it was on for two more hours. Glassy now. I was on a 7'4, I sat at swimming pools, 50m further inside and 30m further out than the pack and got set waves for 200m+ again and again for two more hours, I could do wrong.

Stumbled to shore and crawled up the cliff. Winds have turned onshore now, maybe a late glassoff.

Hahaha. Bali sucks, everyone knows.
