Smaller than yesterday but cleaner and pretty light crowd where I was.

But do they have hexagonal shit in them?
No, but that made me remember what happened to one of my hand foiled fibreglass fins from Phil Way that I went mad looking for.

LuckyAl lost it on the rocks jumping off.
Happens to the best of us Steve! :-D-:

Used my new thermal rashiethis arvo instead of my Springy. I’m thinking the pressure I put on my bung shoulder getting the front zip off aggravates the injury. Much better this arvo.

Holy fcuk. NC's prediction was on the money down here.

I was working all day at the 'Gong uni with a two hour gap around 10.30. Sped down to that place that rhymes with pretty, and my god.

It was 6ft+ dredging lefts, throwing out as wide as they were high on the lower tide... Clean as you could ask for but real fcuking heavy! I paddled out, with a horrible feeling of the knowledge that I only had a very small window and I could not get injured. Not the best mental state for the size and intensity of the wave!

Didn't get much, but scored one medium size stoinker that I was stoked with. Man, it was PUMPING. I've never surfed there before so I would have loved to spend more time casing the lineup. epic.
Nice work, Wyre! Just saw a picture on 16images. Was yours like that?
Probably not, LA. But I had a great view of some that were!

Back zips suck old fellas. Rare to see a back zip loitering around the beach these days.

You can get them. Usually the cheaper option.

The zippers suck on chest zips.

….this was pushing off the wall not diving in.

...running out of breath underwater hasn’t been an issue. Not too bad for a 62 y/o who surfs irregularly.

I'll go back to wearing my old TRHS footy jersey before I'll buy a chest zip.

Fcuk those back zips! Full waist to neck front zip is the go when using a long john plus long sleeve top.

I sometimes just take it off and on again just for the pleasure of doing it.

Apart from cocktail gowns they are unique in their impracticality.
Swell spiked a bit today. Insane rips and dodgy looking water. It’s actually been pretty clean until today.

Not at my regular point.

I’ve had a great week of waves but today was a non event. Should have tried down the south end. Really enjoying my surfing at the moment.

Good fun this morning. Thought it might be dodgy after yesterday and Saturday Crowds but scored heaps of waves.
