Mid Manly was pumping just after lunch with the offshore wind. Got crowded very quickly.

Yesterday was pretty solid in the morning, regular double overhead, some double and a half, but one seven wave set - just failed to make it over the first so got the whole lot on the head.

Waves were wonky though and closing out. Caught 5 or 6, 50m rides, just one for 100m. Gave up after an hour and a half.

Today was rare head and a half but perfect conditions. Got one 300m ripper, but the others were close outs.

Swell is on the way down now.

How are you feeling?
By the way, have you ever played a game called Surakata?

I am feeling quite chilled and relaxed, listening to an Hawaiian Cafe Music mix on a first floor balcony surrounded by trees, cool breeze, and a few mates.

Surakarta? No. Good idea though, we'll make up a board right now and give it a go.

Paddling out for a quiet session this morning, as I got closer there seemed to be quite a few female surfers ripping it up, closer still and there were three photographers in the water and about ten of the best female surfers, plus the hot expats who usually surf there when it breaks.

It was an orderly lineup though and they let me get some waves, half a dozen over two hours, only one was really good.

South facing reef, inconsistent chest to head high but fun when they came through. Lefts were pretty fat but the rights had a nice wackable bowl.

Bethany Hamilton rips.
She sure does. I have some footage of her surfing macaronis from 2006. She had a handle on the front of her board then which she used to grab and push down to help get entry into waves. She had late takeoffs mastered.

Couple of waves at Bendy today, an early and a late. Was slow and busy in the morning but the swell kicked to overhead on the sets. Water pretty cold. Some long rights if you got lucky. Checked it in the arvo and it glassed off, no one out. Even better. Bumped young Sean Mawson on the track who was heading out and we had it to ourselves for an hour or so till a couple of guys paddled out and a light southerly ruffled things up a bit. Swell had kicked slightly so there was a bit of punch. Long waits but a
few nice waves.

Decided to take the foamy out at lunch. Crazy backwash. I caught a couple back out that seemed to go faster than the regular waves coming in. Plenty of thrills and spills when the backwash hit. Kicked the back fin out and cut my foot when I got hit.
Swell picked up in the arvo. Got a couple of okay ones. Too big for the banks really.

That's a good age to kick off the "Beanpole memoirs"
thread.

Happy 62nd Bpole.

Manly, small with the SW wind, worth the effort
