NB's at lunchtime and a few sneaky ones in there - good fun. Plus big enough to run the comp at Newcastle - Swellnet offers uninterrupted coverage.

Noosa!
From gum trees through Johnnos into Little Cove.
Crowded as fuck but surprisingly easy to get waves to yourself Got out at 5.45am.
Surfed till 9am.
Good fun.

….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.

Packed at Crescent Head. Hard to get a wave and the water is iffy. Half the road in is one lane due to flood damage.

Beans, given your close enough to retirement age, why do you go during school holidays? Surely if you went 2 weeks later or last week the crowd would be half?

Time and tide wait for no man, Channels. I agree completely in theory but I have been trying to do this now for over a year. Not going to Crescent but catching up with friends back up home. Started seriously organising about three weeks ago and since then we have had flooding, Covit lock down, Easter and more flooding.
Plenty of swell. Considering I got about the best wave I have had out there on that particular board I’m not complaining.

Pumping a bit further up the coast from BP.

Had a couple of long, long rights all the way to the beach and the tide is still not quite right. Gonna go off!!

Bigger today on NB's but just not the same quality for me as earlier in the week.

Surfed irregular 1' to 2' waves. This is what my surfing life has descended to. Put a star fin in my 6'10 Beau Young Wombat... wow, amazingly fast and loose!

Again on the NBs - crowds up but still a few good ones.
