Started okay but as it filled in the classic Bondi too small to break between sets and too big for the bank in the sets started to come into play. A few lefts looked good and the odd right. Medium ones were good if they connected right through.

Fcuk there's no banks around here. It's dire. As the swell grew yesterday and the easterly wind lay down, there would have been some waves, but there wasn't. Every line just slamming closeouts on straight, shallow banks.
It was quite straight and closing out on quite a few yesterday. Just had to pick the right ones.

Banks are only really liking the dead low tide at the mo, any water on them and they are too full.

sth end here had an epic little peak early this morning on the particularly high tide.
almost flawless, each wave peeling off left and right, several waves in succession between momentary lulls.

and 'bra past weeks seemed best on the high tide.

because the wind is into it and the swell has dropped, tide was way too high for it this morning. Yesterday was significantly better around midday on the lower tide then a couple hours later.

It's a rare day when Bondi is any good on low tide. I was out about 4:00......had to leave work early to renew my beachpass :-D-: Skips on the money.


Mmaaaaaaayyyyyyybbbbeee...Loofs scored right down in the corner......but the reality is the sets at 4:00 waves were still smashing the shallow bank and closing out. You had to pick a medium one and hope it connected. Surprising how much force some of the close outs had.

Some nice looking lefts yesterday arvo and I imagine earlier today would have been good too.

I'm enjoying the 2foot clean waves ATM too. Water's nice, beautiful mornings and good shape that you can ride any board from shorty to log.

Small but very nice conditions yesterday morning. Almost warm water and the combo of overcast and spotlessly clean little waves was glorious.

RMS webcam down, swellnet report said it was close to flat. Was 2-3foot clean and beautiful and a lot less busy than it has been of late.
My car was close to out of fuel last night and what do ya know, it didn't start this morn.
Had to do the bicycle run for a surf.
I think the warm up from the ride made me surf a lot better.
Might keep it up while there's only one decent surf option. And by the time you ride down your going to go out regardless.

So far it been a pretty bad March on the Bukit, and the worst in my experience and many others. Although the swell is OK, the SE trades have not established themselves at all.

I also have an RSI type injury to my shoulder/neck that's so painfull I can't sleep, ride my bike or surf. Continual pain night and day, so I'm going back to oz to get some treatment.

18 days instead of 30, still four more trips to go though. Good time to be in the SW of WA though.

But where in Margaret River can I get a quiet AC room, with bathroom, kitchen and private walled garden 500m from the surf for $18 per night.

Massage hasn't helped, Cranky?
I thought the place would be crawling with yoga instructors, remedial therapists and chiropractors.
