Head high plus sets mid morning as the incoming full moon tide added some push, light side-off breeze, not crowded. Only got a few, pulled back on some when I should have gone.

Waiting for the tide to drop, the wind is aleady offshore

First surf in a month, it can only get better.

Excellent afternoon surf, fcuk all surfers, offshore, regular overhead sets. Hollow and fast as the tide dropped, hit the reef hard a few times.

No more surf reports from me is a good idea I think.

Lil play surf in a quieting E and SE swell combo, felt so much like autumn should feel

I really need surfing right now. Am head down in a very non surfing thing and it feels like simple relief.

I can't even get my head around this autumn at all.

I keep waiting for it to get good, and it doesn't, and instead of lowering expectations and getting the job done, I keep waiting on the sidelines for it to get good. And it doesn't. Instead of surfing yesterday I sat on the Point and watched Rasta out there by himself for an hour and talked shjitt with this very nice man.
Haven't even pulled that Ghost out from under the house all fcuking autumn.
More blown out short/mid period shite today. It's made the banks a mess too.

It's like being heckled by seagulls.

Yesterday margin but clean cronulla point. Some fun wackable bowls off first reef. Today garie beach - magic overhead peaks with decent punch. 6’3 80’s thruster again for the win.

Did you tell Rasta you were unimpressed with his swagger?

Send it to me, steve. I'm tempted to try it in less than perfect surf too. Just because I don't want to leave it like yours.

Long Reef. It's still fun. Unless there's a boost tonight could be shite tomorrow.

Waist-high fun at dawn. Super clean and clear water. As the sun was rising, the moon was still quite bright and high. Quite spectacular.

You are both absorbing salt and urinating.

Rode my DVS Wasp again today.

Jesus christ on a skateboard, its the fastest rail to rail board I've ever ridden, its frenetic, huge flat line speed and turns on a dime.

Definitely a keeper.

6'4 and super light epoxy, no stringer, and the sharpest full length rails I've ever seen

Ah it's a Board Agency model. Was wondering what they are like.

The physics of that board suggest that's impossible.
