I don't think ol' Sharkies has looked as good as it did today in months. Years, even. Perfect. Biggest and best spot on the coal coast I reckon! I had to take my boy to a 6 year old birthday party there. Took my board.

Best party ever!

The farm on a hot Sunday morning with thousands of others. Was some OK waves about but very heavy traffic. Best ones were on the inside when teaching Mrs Beerfan, no dodging people required. Went out the back when she'd had enough but gave up after a longboarder speared it right in front of me and just body bashed with the kids.

Checked the surf at 6am, 1-2' max, went home to wait for the reef to get a little water over it.

Back at 8am 2-3' glass, fast and hollow. 10 out, increasing to about 20 by 10am.

When I came in there was a saffa with a dislocated knee being helped up the steps by his mates.

had a body surf at newcastle beach today. It's somewhat like the bondi of Newcastle geographically i guess. There was a sum total of 20 guys spread over 4 different peaks, both reefs and sand banks. Lovely little 2 ft swell and offshore. Felt like Bondi 40 years ago, but better.

Temples as usual, twice. Glassy when I checked it, onshore when I got out. No other takers

Glassy in the arvo. Two of us surfed hollow waves 1-2', breaking in less than 1' of water. Tide dropped further, too low for me after 2 hours - shitty walk in over the reef
You surfed on Nyepi? .

The Farm is the Illawarra's Byron Bay. Last Sunday, four vans had parked across several parking spots down in the front carpark and the ranger was down there lecturing them. Another group were playing a ukulele around a fire (illegal in a state park). I watched Irish tourists let beautiful Mctavish boards (without legropes) careen into swimmers. 80% of the surfers don't actually catch waves. I find the place fascinating.

Have torn my rotator cuff and couldn't surf on the best weekend in ages. :B

Not as good as cranked. But super clean Curl Curl at waist to chest height. Little SA channel bottom was all over it.

And it seems that there's 5+ days of well overhead waves coming up from Wednesday.

Yeah, it's crazy on weekends. Mid week can be ok though. I didn't last long out there, I don't do well in crowds anyway but it was packed. Would've been dropped in on or would've had to dodge everything from retirees on bodyboards to fat dudes on soft tops.

Hope the shoulder gets better mate. Get it right for the CB egg!

Saw The Farm for the first time in January. Always wondered were it was as I've surfed Bombo for twenty + years. Pretty....bit of a crowded close out full of mals. Don't need to drive for that.

I heart Newcastle.

Only Aus city I could consider living in.

Newcastle Main is better than Bondi. Cowrie Hole is around the corner and Nobbys has a consistent left. Then there's Bar, Dixon Park and Merewether. Surf Central.
