New southerly swell. Plenty of push at Bronte. Dodging a few close outs but managed one solid one that held until it hit the inside. That did me for the arvo.

My surfing is worse then usual right now. I’m using a different board every surf and really am messed up. I hate this time of the year.

But the Swellnet surf report said 5/10, would they tell untruths?

Had a fun little bash on the foamy at Nth Bondi. Nice little bank.

2 surfs today, back beach in the morning then the island in the afternoon. Neither were anywhere near what you would call good but it was just great to be amongst it. There was a bit of swell.

The Farm had some size, but a lot of water moving around.

I surfed there all day. Thought you might’ve been around. Pretty crowded due to the rally.

The swell was a bit all over the place. Hangover from yesterday’s south winds, long period south swell overpowering the banks.

Some ok ones in the mix, but you had to be right on the button at the last second to position yourself.

I was there pretty early, so the crowd was kinda normal. Yeah, it was wonky and rippy and you either had to wait it out for the sets with form, or sit right inside. There was no in between.

The middle section sitting a little inside had the best form. Straight into the bowl without having to try and scratch into them. Even they had plenty of shutdowns

On the plus side the outgoing rip on the west corner along the rocks was that strong there was barely any need to paddle. One of the easiest paddle outs ever.

Surfed Shelly beach Friday. Some fun fast late drops into a head high racing shore break.

Backyards to Sunset Pt then Kammieland, gorgeous day in Hawaii. Light to nonexistent wind and clean v straight NNE swell, a rare angle for this quality level. Not big, like 4-5' with some bigger sets, but spit clean. Backyards is like a long right point in these conditions. It felt like Tahiti.

Absolutely smoking 10 days ahead of great surf from 8-20 feet.

Oh man. That sounds amazing NC!

AJ and Hatchy, did either of you check Port? I hear it was good.

Pretty wonky up here as well. Let's see if this lil nor'easter gives us a couple tomorrow morn...
