Forgot to say had a quick wave up at Bungan yesterday. Ok. Popped up to Newport to grab a bite to eat (that's another story). On the street, head down and following my feet, I suddenly looked up to see a figure sporting a disapproving glare. It was Real Surf's Nick Carroll, well a painting of him, well more or an historical tribute to the man and his bro'. Pretty good painting I think. And yes he is wearing a hat.

And by wearing a hat do you mean a cap turned backwards ?

Clubbie caps are multi directional.

Indeed they are, with the design perimeter being a condom.

Hence the saying: Clubbies are alright for dickheads.

On second look, that Firewire nose wasn't creased .. It was buckled. I could see the foam beneath the cracked wooden deck.

Surfed Tuncurry Breakwater this morning. Relatively crowded and the tide was getting a bit low. A bit crunchy for this old stager.
Surfed it yesterday with about four people. Got a few.
Crescent had waves most days. Late afternoon Boxing Day was the best.
Surfed Backside of Plomer which had goodish banks and One Mile at Forster.

Fun 2 -3 footers at Manly. Despite the amount of people floating around, barely anyone surfing and beach was closed to swimmers.

If it was crowded it would have been a hassle but managing to grab 30 or so waves on a summer arvo exceeded expectations.

Webber shortie.

Same bank again this morning at 5.15am. Slightly bigger than last night, consistent 3 footers. Glassy with rain, 2 hour surf with plenty of waves to go around.

30 waves. Active surf.

It's raining. Just side stepped all rain drops coming back from getting a coffee.

Super fun waist to occasional chest-high peaks for an hour and a half with just me and the missus out. Northern Beaches during xmas school holidays. Go figure.

That's cause they are all in Byron Bay. The whole world is here. Chaos is off the charts.

Bronte. Went down for a swim and decided to get my board. Became increasingly crowded as the tide dropped.

Down the coast. Out the front. Small right rip bowl.
Would like to be positive about the state of the surf but it's been fcuking dire here for weeks.

I put it down to bulldozing the gutters with sand. They did the same thing a few years ago. Pray for a new season of Bondi Rescue.

I'm actually still sore from too much surf up the coast despite certain grumpy wowser killjoys predictions. Muscles feel ready for more but my shoulders playing up and I'm just getting some flexibility back in my lower back.
