Yeah wasn’t ideal. Still some decent lefts coming through but super shifty

So Hatchie, were you roaming around the Entrance in a Las Vegas T Shirt yesterday?
What on earth are you dribbling on about? I went as far as blue bay and was wearing a Judas Priest shirt. And Las Vegas is a shithole. I’d never wear a LV shirt

Today. 3 hours north Maroubra. Lumpy 3-4 foot, with some ok peaks on offer
Sorry, just saw someone with one on and thought you might have an ironic sense of humour. Don’t know where I got that idea from. Actually at Bateau Bay.

Every time I surf windblown shit (which is every time I surf) I think of Dane's videos where he and his mates are mostly having a blast in windblown shit

Wind died right away, got pretty fun until the tide started getting too low.

He has the kelp outside of the takeoff
aj posted about how to get something like that happening. I posited that massive buoys, like the red bull plane acrobats use, on the surface outside of banks would make a massive difference

Had a lot of fun out at Kirra this morn.
Minimal crowd.
More solid than I expected, probably about 4ft.

Mid-late arvo session at north end Maroubra. Nearly four hours. Fun mix of ESE/ENE swells, peaky 3-4 foot with enough punch in the swell to keep thing interesting.

Some of the lefts were screamers that linked through to the beach. The 6’3 McCoy was on the money.

Really beefed up on the beaches up here today. Some really interesting sand deposits around after the last swell. And for once the beaches out the front of mine we’re handling 4-6ft so I didn’t have to deal with the crowds. Surfed on my own for an hour and then a bloke paddled out and he got cleaned up and got rescued 😂

Tama through to Bronte looked good. Lots of peaks.

Epic day yesterday. Started at the local, 3-4ft and super glassy, nice reeling lefts coming in at the north end. Then after a quick recharge we hit that big left bommie that rhymes with Chommos. unbelievable, 4-6 ft and clean as, total dream conditions. Scored a few bombs!

5 or so hours in the water. Absolutely cooked, the beer was so cold and the sleep so deep.

Nice work !! Today, dozens of head high plus wedging peaks at a place that rhymes with schooner. Wind has now cooked it

Late arvo session north Maroubra on the incoming tide. Wind was light moderate with only slight ruffle, the faces were clean.

4-5 foot and punching above it’s size. Felt more like 6+. Easy paddle out, shifting take off zone, deep then wide. All about wave selection today.

Got a few screamers that linked all the way thru, four consecutive backhand snaps on the last wave in, the 6’3 McCoy swinging like a pendulum top to bottom.

Cranked would’ve blown his load.

I'd like a surf anywhere on anything. It's about a month since I've had a surf.
