My last screw up rocking off was jumping off at McKenzies last year and getting washed back onto the rock shelf snapping my favourite fins on my fish.
Oh yeah, I also got a big bruise before Xmas jumping off at Crescent and having the fin get me in the thigh.

Zilch. Nowhere around the Eastern Suburbs has any banks. Out of my league anyway. Had a woeful surf at The Bra this morning.

Nearly four hours at a mid-gong swell magnet beachie with plenty head high sets rolling through. A frame peaks, tubes and turns. Tides dropped and winds kinda killing it now

Not much. Pretty spread out, plenty of banks to choose from.

Huh. Cave beach park on fire. Can see the smoke billowing. Looks kind of out of control. Here comes the Jet with retardant.

….this was pushing off the wall not diving in.

...running out of breath underwater hasn’t been an issue. Not too bad for a 62 y/o who surfs irregularly.

Waves are far better than they look. 3-4 foot, not much wind but left over lump and bump. Fun.

Okay, something approaching the look of actually banks today. Crowded as Fcuk. Crew spread over three main banks. Two of which had lefts and rights with deep gutters on each side and a relatively normal inside section for a change. Would have been fun with about a quarter of de crowd.
