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.

trust me. there's nothing more satisfying than wanking out a load into the dry dust while the surrounding forest and wildlife burn to the ground around you.

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.

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.

I played dodge the hard sharp things the other day. Then nearly got run over by some young clubbie training on his obnoxious paddle board. Straight down the wave face he came, I pretty much duck dived out the way. Fking moron.

Crowdy Head back beach. Sub 2 foot dumpy ripbowls. Uneven and shifty but still some wackable ones

fcuken fun as today, strong short interval s swell and ne wind, just a fcuk load of fun to see out a 6/10 surf year.

highlights for me:

epic Hawaii in late Jan into Feb
coupla v solid s swells in winter Syd
10 days of phenomenal JBay
heaps of fun at Bells both surfing and focusing on the CT performance levels
engrossing wildlife encounters during offshore ski training in late winter and spring
coaching one of my squad to win Molokai
investigating the Surf Ranch first hand
getting a bunch of boards to stress test their limits from 4-12'

like, many more personal ones but that's the surf related ones. There's others for sure but thats off the top of my head
