Maybe the Brainwave has gone on a quest to find and rescue the Golden TOTY ... aka Longtard.

Or gone on a quest with Longtard ... aka Don Quixote.

You know, like Sandshoe or Poncho or Pedro ... or Sancho even.

God knows, tards just love tilting at windmills.

Yesterday. 4-5 foot Winki, 15 sec period swell. Not crowded?! Paddled out at top end of Bells, but had bomb break right in front of me, ditched my newish stepup, resurfaced to find it in two pieces. No choice but to get washed in across the reef. Went out again on my fish. Got a couple off medium sized ones but would have been an awesome sesh on the step up.

There was some decent energy coming through in-between the lulls at Longy this morning. Mostly straight handers, but nice for a thrash about.

Yep, I scored a few before the wind came up. Great conditions. Big lulls between sets.

Bugger, that looked (past tense sorry) like a nice shape.

At long last a clean surface to play on
grunty ENE swell tide coming in and some shifting peaks and walls
shared some thick hollow ones before the tide filled in to much with one neighbor then another 4 later
The CV2 is very sure-footed and quick off the mark
The swell has been solid early and disappearing on higher tide

It was good today wasn’t it? Can’t believe that we’ve had three weeks of swell. The winds have been dodgy at times but always a wave if you know where to look. Dropped my last lot of guests off at the airport today and visited a bank that Brainwave told me about during our Xmas beers. Overhead lefts and rights with the odd barrel all the way to the beach. One other guy out.

2-3 ish foot Wollongong beachie. Fairly weak flubbery swell but the twin fin livened things up a bit.

Lacklustre and too crowded. Snared a couple at the start then paddled around in circles for 45 minutes. Should have gone in after the first two. Fog kept the sun at bay for a while. Still hot.

Mouth of an inlet in vicco.
Water was warmer than Ballina currently which I surfed 2 days ago.

Little rip bowl up the beaches. Lots of paddling to stay in place, and ate a bit of sand on a few takeoffs, but I had it to myself and the water was beautiful.

Same at Longy, except it was not a solo surf.

Took my neighbour from Niger for his first surf at cronulla. Weak small ENE windswell. We stayed out for about two hours. The dude was smiling wide ear to ear the whole time.

Paddling out with the nose sticking way up in the air. Attempting to sit up then get spun upside down. Standing on the bank right in the impact zone because he felt better with his feet touching even though he wore nearly every set on the head.

Towards the end of it he was starting to show slight signs of improvement and managed to ride a couple of waves in lying down.

That’s excellent Iggs. Well done.
I ventured down to a well known point break this afternoon. As the tide dropped out there were head high barrels on offer on the inside. Everyone was out the back jockeying for fat waves that died out after 20 metres into a channel. There was about 10 of us on the inside getting 50 metre sand dredging tubes.
It’s been the best Xmas and NY since I’ve been living here. The swell has been 3-5 everyday. Winds have been questionable at times but on the right tide you can still pick up some quality waves. Had a mate up from Bondi for new year and he was gobsmacked about the quality and lack of people compared to the Eastern Suburbs.
I’m gonna go South tomorrow to catch up with the illustrious TOTY. I’ll send him everyone’s best wishes.
