Woo, winds out near NZ are stronger than last week, 30-40 knots blowing straight back at us.

Let's see if the forecasters go this one.

Well sayonara to the worst summer the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney has seen in many a long day. I've had fun here and there ......usually there rather than here.
Autumn allready looking better.

Bad luck, I've still got 3 weeks to go.
Should be good.

pretty good summer here.

Really high quality uncrowded E swell through the beginning/middle of Dec.

Shithouse XMas/New year and into the start of Jan.

Big, winter calibre S swell second week of Jan- 10 foot.
Lots of different swells through end of Jan and into Feb including TC Fehi.
TC Gita swell in Feb.

I'd give it a 7.5/10.

0/10 for me as I only had my first surf since Nov on Saturday.* Contrary to Rustt, excellent conditions prevailed at Gunnamatta. Scored a couple of good ones, but paddle fitness had totally deserted me. Rip fcuked me over a few times

* Same argument, still summer

Nah, it is what it is. Felt good to wear a shortjohn and thin vest. Gunna buy a good 3/2 and try it with the shorty through winter. 4/3 is getting too hard. Besides, I can't get out of the chest zip without assistance

Got a barely worn 4/3 Excel top of the range for sale if anyone is interested

Size LS. Pretty much the same fit as RC

Hope so. Went for a run yesterday at Bondi. I haven't surfed there now since mid Dec. just looking like a bank may form sometime. Went for a swim in the flags and it dropped straight off from calf deep to no sandbank in a matter of metres. Two people next to me had to be rescued on the board about two metres from the sandbank. Real struggle to get back on the bank.
