7am, amazing surf by myself in glassy, overhead waves. Only lasted an hour and the rising tide killed it.

Forecast was bad so I didn't bother checking the surf until 6:30am. Would have been out at 5:30am if I'd known.

Bash on the foamy in bumpy conditions. A mixed bag but somehow managed to pull off a couple of big reos off the foam. Still plenty of push in the water.

That’s super, but how about the important stuff. How was the parking?

How’s your parking going Cranked? Do you still pay the old Ibu at Impossibles when she’s there? Or just buy a drink?
I really need to come back over there I think.

Surprisingly good for a midday Saturday. There was some sort of clubbie nonsense going on and it was a bit windy so not prime. Parked halfway round the back. The parking spots actually appear to get narrower the further around you go so it can be a tight squeeze if it's packed and you have to go right around.

Parking is no problem. I still pay the Ibu, though the signs are gone and I'm the only one who does pay.

She's a nice old lady. Her daughter died about 4 years ago and she's bringing up her grandaughter, so I've always felt sorry for her.

It is about time you came back. I'm booked for Mar, May, July and Sept.

Afternoon bash. Okay but rapidly deteriorating with the tide.....plus a bunch of Brazzos.

Early morning surf, glass, head and a half, got a few nice ones on the Fat Arsed Wombat set up as a single. Only a few people out

Then the afternoon on the Biscuit Bonzer, chest high, glass, just a few out.

Most of the last three weeks has been about the same. Crowds come and go, but dropping all the time, as are the swells.

Should be some decent NE swell in the morning.

Southerly is due down here at around 5am. I think it might start SW but I reckon it won't take long to smash into that nice little NE swell.

Had a body bash at Bronte. Straight little swell doing nothing much in particular. Water is warming up a bit.

Surfed for an hour then the southerly hit at 7am.

Shoulder to head high plus fairly chunky and consistent swell bunching into the south corner. Strong side shore wind was a bit of a bother, but still had decent shape.

Great little surf this morning.

In the water at 6am, perfect glassy conditions with head high sets with a bit of a wait between them. No one else out.

I rode the Bonzer, fcuk that board is fast and it needs to hit light speed to make the zippy little waves.

Someone else paddled out at 7am, but we were about 50m apart, so no problems there.

Three surfers came out at 9am, and I went in.

Quick paddle on the NBs before the storms and dust. Looks like a long hot summer ahead.
