Colder air coming over Hokkaido this afternoon

This morning we went with Peely down some gully or other off the Annapuri runs. For those of you who don't know Shane Peel, he is a bit of a pirate, he's pretty much done everything you can imagine and now lives in Niseko with his girl and baby daughter, shooting snow vids and running various business propositions. Shearer knows him. Anyway trust him to find a gully. It was super cool! Banking off the sides of the gully for about nearly a K, around trees and bumps and stuff. Then we found another one and I had an awesome cartwheel crash right at the top, filled my goggles with snow and had to ski the whole run without. It's way better except for the snowflakes hitting you in the god damn face all the way.

It's absolute dribble. Don't bother. Go back to bed. Except if your name's Beanpole, then it's pumping out there.

1 to barely 2 foot of very slow painfully weak leftover north east windswell dribble. Completely uninspiring

Yes, I had two uninspiring surfs yesterday...and it was probably better than today.

There was not much on offer after the rain yesterday. The last two evenings weren't good sessions.

Yesterday was good, bout six foot sets and real clean in the morning then dropped off to nothing. Then this morning it's eight foot and lumpy but offshore, now there is a lot of water moving, probably ten foot plus on the bombies, might be a few good waves on the surf coast.

Dunno what beigepole was lookung at but I had a couple of fun sessions out at Bondi today on the mal. There was one of the best bank set ups just in front of the skatepark. Sure it was small but nice and clean consistent runners and not too crowded.
If I had pedometer on, I reckon I'd have clocked up 10,000 steps walking the plank.

Today was scraping the bottom of the barrel in the rain and onshore winds.

Main beach.
1-2 foot and super dredgy. I got undressed by one wave, boardies blasted off and rashie over the head.

It's funny. Brainwave, Shearer and Saltman lament the tragedy of a Northerly. Understandable if you're south of Broadbeach.
I was away in Hervey Bay for a Nippers carnival today but last Sunday in a howling NE'ster I got 3 foot (head high and a bit) low tide peaks at the Spit at 3.00 in the afternoon on the the tail end of that last swell.
We folk from the North will head South when it's worthwhile but the Mexicans just complain about the Northerly.
Are you hearing me Donweather?
