Gunnamatta, got into the water around 0620 just as the sun was rising. Got some nice 2 - 3ft waves before the easterly wind really picked up.

Nothing too great but they were holding okay on the banks and there was hardly anyone out so me and a mate had pretty much most of it to ourselves

and ends at Currimundi.

Yeah, I know that, too but why would I drive past good waves to get to maybe better waves but 25 times as many crew. I absolutely HATE crowds. and there are none at my local.

What happened to kite surfing? A kiteboard cutting a swathe through the lineup would soon disperse the hoards.And they won't be able to catch you if you collect a few on the way through.(except if you fell off) :P

Hey Trev, I'm a big fan of your local. I know how good it can get, and I love the way it is always better than it looks. But there were other waves around that day, that were good and certainly not crowded.

I also much prefer point breaks (or at least over rock). Never been a lover of beachies except as a last resort.
Having grown up surfing Kirra, Snapper Currumbin and Bogangar, I guess explains it. In Sydney for 14 years, it was The Bower or Dee Why point, 9 times out of 10.

well I surfed my local right hander again today, 5-7ft with the occasional bigger but wide and not really surfable bombs...scored a stinker off the bat, about 6 ft and really wedged up and the 6'1 was just hanging in, then got inside and it shaped up perfect...great fun...3 or 4 more similar until while waiting out the back for another , I heard a splashing sound, turn round to see who it was and it was a big noah feeding on a school of fish, it was about 20 mtrs from me so as I turned to paddle in a few big bombs headed straigh to me, they were pushing 8f I reckon and that size that they are almost too big to duck-dive and if the shark wasnt nearby I may have dived under but copped 3 on the head and the whole time not knowing where the feeding shark was, then caught the wash on the tail of a 5 fter and got the faarrrkkk outta there...did the shark fin signal and that cleared the line-up , which was only 7 guys...the fin was quite a dark colour and about a foot in size, the tail was thrashing and it seemed to be at lease 6 ft in length....real shame coz the waves were really good but not worth the risk...they really are thick ATM..cmon fisherman, do your thing..... :shock: :cry: :x 8)

Turned up at my local this am. (5).
Gentle SW breeze, clear water,absolutely beautiful conditions...................and almost flat. :twisted:
Watched for a while and one other guy turned up and hit the water almost straight away.
So I scrapped my planned walk and paddled out.
Well, we spent the next hour grinning stupidly at one another as one paddled back out and the other took off on waist to shoulder height peaks which morphed into about 200m rides :lol:
When he went in to go to work I had another half hour before one more guy came out 8)
I seem to remember Tiger pointing out that this place is almost always better than it looks.
Right again, Tim 8)
