Wategoes generally benign but the bit between there and the Pass - Bullshits - can get dicey - not a surf spot as such just current and rocks and waves and stuff. More than a few unsuspecting punters/backpackers have come to grief there.

Just been for a ride up the lighthouse - took this about an hour ago - Bullies... that bit of whitewater is where you don't want to be although it's a pretty simple paddle out to sea it's just people get sucked in to fighting it :lol: .

Watched a bit of the stream from Snapper with Rabbit and Richie. 4 hours….Fast forwarded through some but the commentary is entertaining and it makes good wallpaper. Some epic rides. Better than watching a comp.

Waves look good for the portugal comp today.
Got a few Aussies to come in this rd of 16 including Cal Robson from Evans who's been ripping.
And Imaikalani deVault from Hawaii who has been comp standout and posted a 19.6 heat yesterday.

Nice story about the New York Times’ Australian bureau chief and the life changes he observed from taking his kids to nippers.
