Surfed the Bra Wednesday and Yesterday. Little. Nice little bank. Bugger all people out. Good vibes generally and waves shared. Pile of school kids came out at 1:00 pm. Time to get out. Waters been great. Good for my cough.

Crazy water day, the light was amazing. Between squalls and lightning it would clear to dark water, clear air and brilliant silver foam lines. Solid six foot plus but kinda broken up, wind offshore and onshore then back to offshore.

I was driven out of the water by a trememdous raining squall around 5.10pm, ran up to the surf club for a hot shower, and there was the entire Parramatta NRL squad. They’d just been getting flogged by Rob Rowland Smith in a weights course then a skills session at the local oval which had left them dirty, so Rob had brought them down to wash off. “What the fcuk have you all been doing?” I said, laughing at them. They were like gigantic babies, huge men, cackling and hooting and grunting, it was impossible to understand what they were saying. The coaching squad waited outside, all intelligent men who reminded me of maths teachers.

I made such a mess, even with the idiot proof solarez she'll be right mate ding repair method, of fixing the nose of this Maurice Cole pintail it took me all morning to get it water tight. Had to rip it off and redo it three times.
Finally got it to the Point. 3-5ft, 25 knots of side shore wind with spin drift everywhere and what looked like a river of current. Which it was.
hardly anyone out.Big holy rollers with some steep sections on the double-ups if you could duck dive the sets.

I made such a mess of the jump off. I really fcuked it up. Tried scrambling without waiting and ended up getting completely pole driven back into the rocks by an angry little sidewinder. I put the shoulder down and kept the board up and got nothing but a few gouges of flesh out ......no more dings on the board.
six three pintail. Feels like a giant board these days. Super sure footed on the bottom and the carve down. It was a nice opening run.

Mate, am keen for a visit - dont worry wont stay with you but if you can predict a couple days midweek where there looks to be a cheeky swell anywhere between 3-5ft appearing and decent winds give me a yell and I will buy you a couple ales.

Nice, protow?
I just surfed where you did, blessed with a clean rock off. Good long walls.
Got 4 set waves from the big pine past the hut.
Was only out for 35min.
Only 5 of us.
Surfed the 6'6 lynchy.

Guy at work took possession of a custom 6'3" (?) protow a couple of weeks ago. He's a charger and tows in on a MC. Paddles big guns too. Instant gel with the PT. Reckons it's his go to for paddling anything with push from 3-8 ft. Bigger if he doesn't need the paddle power of a gun
