It's been a shocker this Summer for drownings.

Went for an early check. Tide too low but we are going out on the harbour so this was the only chance today. Looked dodgy so I went for a run and a swim. Noticed a few lefts holding up quite well so I grabbed my board and jumped in the rip near the flags. Straight into position for the next left which just kept going and going. Got out, walked back up the beach and did it again only this wave was even better. Third time it closed out so I got out.

More swell energy today! Rip bowl rights! So many whackable sections.
Good to see you’ve got the lingo down

It’s small and junky on the Surf Coast. And the waters cold. Not fun.

North Woonona. 2-3 foot wind affected right and left peaks breaking into and off the reef bed. Fairly short waves but still enough of a run to put in a couple of turns.

Then took the pod handplane out a bit further south between the flags with waves pitching top to bottom over a waist high sandbank.

Was fun getting catapulted out of the lip and into the flats, dodging all manner of plump holiday bogans.

Those pods are pretty fun to break things up a bit.

I’m pretty sure someone is going to drown today.
Does it stress you to watch clueless people wander into serious situations?

Was watching a kid on Xmas day at Boomerang on a bodyboard with no flippers go out in a rip, beach was pretty empty and his parents were too busy talking to friends and having beers to watch him closely. Not even sure they even thought he might get into trouble. Was way out the back when a closeout set flogged him and he landed back on the sandbar and washed in after a few more. I was thinking I might have to go out and get him, just couldn’t get over the lack of attention his parents were showing.

Bought it about 20 plus years ago for $60. They’re still the same price! That super deep concave provides a tonne of lift and drive when you press down on it. With bodysurfing it feels like you need a square dredging wave to get the best out of it.

Nah it doesn’t, because of what you just described, most apparently clueless people get booted out by the surf pretty easily

What would stress me is what those lifeguards at Coffs went through a couple of days ago, going out looking for people and finding one dead.

Talking to my son on Skype for Christmas.
He's a firey in Mississauga, a satellite city to Toronto, Canada.
They spend more time as first responders to road accidents than fighting fires.
Had one the other day, a Tesla which had rolled for over 100 metres, hit a tree about 10 feet up.
Guy was dead.
They recovered his phone, still with his unfinished text on the screen.

I think he was embellishing to his old man:

Tesla crashes are big news so unless there's another one that the msm have covered up ...

At a guess the text wasn't

He doesn't need to build himself up to me.
We were discussing a number of recent accidents he's attended.
I may have got the dead bit wrong but I'm 90% sure it was only last week.
Pretty hard to keep on top of a Skype conversation when there's a couple of beautiful grandkids getting involved. Plus my daughter in law's sister, her hubby, their two kids and the other set of grandparents.

Maybe he was poisoned by the putrid water in the lake, Duck?

Well putrid is a little strong Jimmy but I don’t swim in it unless it’s flowing well on the incoming tide, near the entrance. Not sure if the guy was in the lake or ocean. They opened the lake last week but it’s not working. Didn’t dig enough sand out. Its already stopped flowing and is closing up. Need a fcuk off big rain storm to clear out the artery.
