Good old Manly this morning. As old mate above said it was freezing but offshore and OK 3/4 ft waves. Surfed an old 6'6 single fin for the hell of it. Probably shouldn't have done as it was a bit of a struggle getting into the waves. Got one clean, long, fast wave and as it wedged up on the bank my eyes buldged and went for a slicing top turn which felt great until I lost the fin and nosed dived into ankle deep water.

Apparently the lifeguards rated the water temp at 14 degrees last weekend. 29 air temp. Freeze your balls off without a steamer.

Fcuking very fun solid arvo surf, wind dying, chunky double swell, riding a 6'0" Spears six channel and leaning on the rail, felt so good. Now I have three wet wetsuits in December.

It went oilslick glassy here this afternoon, surf muscled up. I squeezed a micro go out in in very good point surf with a crowd of 3.

The water was cold and then you'd hit a warm patch. Very weird. Surf was cranking at my local this arvo. Four guys out. Haven't seen Shellharbour break as well in years. Mid length single fin (funboard/mini mal) to paddle in early - got very shallow on the inside bank. Will mind surf that session for a month.

These pre-xmas swells, when the cube monkey count is low, are a gift from God.

Do you think I've managed to redeem my cube monkey status yet steve, or is it now more or less a lemarchian trait

Lemarckian.

If you understand legion's techspeak it is untreatable I'm afraid.

Most unusual for me but nearly two hours at my local in the middle of the day. Must have been a bit of leftover from Steve's swell.
Fun.

I used the Mayhems in the Ghost and it felt perfectly finned to me.

It was hilarious, I was sitting out there on a new board in 4-5ft Point surf and there were 10-15 people spread across 800 m.

No-one within 50 m of me.
