Nice to see you’re still giving the singles a run.

Cronulla point today. Some nearly double overhead sets, and fairly solid. Surfed my big ol’ mid-70’s 6”11 pintail single.

Approached each wave the same.

A speed run straight to the shoulder as wide as I possibly could. Then eased into a cutback, driving deep back into the bowl at first reef reform. Then just stood there trimming along like an ape 🦍 on Valium til the wave completely died out.

Nothing fancy but got the job done. Meat and three veg style.
What time were you there man? I was at the island but came through the point for one on the way in about 9am.

There at around 11-1pm. I very nearly paddled out at Wanda/greenhills. It looked solid and bigger than double overhead. Some real bombs. But wind was into it, lots of shutdown sections, and water moving around and no channel

Sounds like too much hard work for little reward.

I need to surf the beachies more.
I realised how unfit (how lazy i’ve become) i was the other day when i tried getting out at north Narrabeen. Spending too much time at the point really has a negative impact on fitness and duck diving skills...

Been out on the PCC single much lately Iggs?

Yeah I surf that board quite a lot. Anything from clean chest high beachbreak peelers up to solid six foot reefs/point. Haven’t had it out at voodoo yet, but had plenty sessions at sandon, boneyards, windang, and era point.

Not scared. I can duck dive. Just looked like too much effort for probably no reward. There was the odd walled up one coming through. But shifting all over.

The point was a bit of a circus, as usual. I never get frothing over the point. I’ve had some decent waves there before. A couple of memorable barrels, but overall I’m alway nonplussed if I have to surf it. It’s kinda the quick and easy fix, when I haven’t got time to go somewhere else decent.

some super fun beachies today. first surf in 2 years in a steamer. my 2mm short sleeve steamer is back with xcel. 1 month past warranty and i split it right under the arm pit into the side seam. right where all the paddling action happens.

hopefully they repair or replace it at no cost.

Surfing is a sport that demands spontaneity and it proves increasingly fcuking difficult to have a part time relationship with it. And now I'm off to an art gallery with the family while the surf pumps.

You're just trying to make me feel better and I'll be having none of it. I'll sustain my bad temper right through the White Rabbit Gallery and on into Spice Alley, regardless of how good the laksa is.
