i left for saigon the morning before the storm hit. not because the storm was coming but because my son's school break was over and we had to get back to bangkok. the next morning there were roofs flying, trees uprooting, streets flooding and ships wrecking up and down the coast. you probably wouldn't have been thinking about surfing there that day.

South end from 3 til just before 5. Was a notch bigger when I first paddled out and only a handful. Now it’s packed to the hilt.

It was. Some (almost) south straddie style peaks coming through.

Couple of spots on the NB's were doing the same. Bugger all people about.

NB's Tuesday and today. The run of swell just keeps giving and pretty good fun out there (but crowds although lots of them really don't know what they are doing, apart from getting in the way).

Nulla beachies chest to head high plus. Dead south swell and long period = mostly shutting down but the smaller ones in between sets had some makeable ones with a wall and shoulder.
Surfed the 6’4 single. Managed to get a nice little barrel, though the whole wave shut down just after I came out.

Glassy conditions nearly all the time now. Hottest time of year. Swell is small, but still overhead on the exposed breaks

Same at Longie. DY closed for a clubbie event. Longie mostly closeouts with the occasional smaller runner.

Too much period in the swell. Was considering a certain south facing reef but the west wind always ruffles it and makes the take off zone shifty and sketchy. So closeout beachies it was.

Looked super crowded. Actually everywhere looked super crowded.

Went out at two against my better judgement. Still worse than expected.

Glorious day. Offshores, brilliant sunshine, nice overhead swell, no crowds. Some push from the incoming tide put it well up for an hour.

I picked off half a dozen solid waves, 200m, dropping in was exhilarating, easy 12' of face, stayed high mostly looking for the fastest line.

10 of us spread over about a k, 3 hour session, plus a 1 hour dawnie. Great way to end the season.
