Quick 30min session at mid-south maroubra. Walled up and freight-training but makeable. Surfed the 6’4 single. No top turns or cutties. just a take off, bottom turn, set the trim line and chase it down.

Surfed a 7ft singley for a change at Long Reef. Managed to cruise through a super fat section from miles out into a fast head high shore break that gave me a nano second of excitement as I thought I was going to thread the needle. Lip to head in ankle deep water. Highlight.

No one.

Small but very clean and tidy peaks zippering along some shallow sand. 5 knots offshore. Autumn is #pleasant.

Lovely backlit clean as whistle 2-3ft waves racing down the bank this morning. Great session.

North end maroubra had a flawless right peak rolling through. Steep full faced take off throwing up a sloping shoulder to cutback off and then a racey reform bowl all the way into the beach. Head high on the sets. Packed lineup. Shit fight. The wind and lower tide has kinda killed it now. Paddled in at around 9.30. Surfed the 6’4 single again.

Against expectations had a fun surf before lunch. Could have gone for another about 6:00 pm. Went down for a swim and it was pretty uncrowded.

Down the coast at a swell magnet beachy. Plenty of closeouts but the odd one with a corner, none of which came my way. Crowd factor's off the charts. Eloura board riders also set up tent (wtf they doing down here?). Beautiful conditions, 3-4ft glass. Got 5 close outs and went in.

I still believe closeouts are underrated

Had a fun surf yesterday arvo with not much crowd. Today much worse and more crowded. Still got a couple eventually. Feeling pretty fit at the moment.
