My local.
Nice cool morning, hopefully a sample of things to come.
Sneaky little SSW breeze coming round behind the headland and out across the park and into the wave faces.
Shortish period and a bit full but lots of fun.

Oh. And our cam has been down since mid January. They've even taken away the mounting.
The web site says it's "undergoing an upgrade"
Upgrade away guys. Just put it back somewhere else.

Dawnie at Nicks local. Only 2ft but super clean and pretty consistent. 6 blokes out. All mature age. What’s with the groms up there? All hellmen?

Fun session at the local on the late. The banks in front of the pavilion still result in a lot of close outs but the tide was high enough to help things out.

Should have gone there instead of down the end.....but I got a park and it looked bigger. Would have been fun without the crowd......and I cut my heal....quads.

Things have been quiet on the bukit, swell around 1-2 occasionally 3'. No crowds though, usually surfing with a couple of locals, sometimes by myself, so getting some ok waves.

Yesterday lit up though at about 10am. Everyone was at spot 1 where I had been surfing once or twice daily and no-one was at spot 2. Just as I paddled out a two wave, well-overhead set came through.

Conditions were perfection but with only a few set waves every 10-20 minutes. Surfed by myself for an hour before 2 mates came out for the next 2 hours.

Had a rest and went back out at 3:30pm for another 3 hours. Only about 4 of us, surfed until sunset. Only caught a dozen head high waves all day, but conditions were so good it was a joy just to sit on a board and enjoy the experience, no stress, no hastling, desultery conversation in between.

A slight contrast to my experience....highly jealous.

Waves were really really good today. Clean till 2pm and solid mixture of ESE and ENE. Then surged later into a bit bigger and more direct. NE wind wrecked it a bit though

Ulus was a mess this morning at 6am, onshore and raining. Checked again at 9am and it was glassy with the swell still hanging in there at 1-2' with an occasional 3'.

I hot footed it out there with my 6'1 and surfed by myself for an hour at spot 1 before 2 others joined me. Again no hassles, no-one joined us for another hour and it got better as the tide dropped. By 11:30am it was crowded so I paddled in.

Onshore again in the afternoon with a dropping swell so didn't bother going out again.

Went for a run....should have chucked the board in. Saw someone get a barrelling right as I pulled up. Very rare indeed. Saw someone get a coverup on a left while I was running. Saw heaps of smack downs plus one broken board....plus a euro backpacker with the best set of tits I've seen in a long while frolicking in the surf....and that's saying something at Bondi.

Paddled out on Thursday arvo late after debating the situation. I did get one miserable wave and managed to avoid being run over or running over someone.

I was telling someone about it yesterday and realised I'm Fcuking crazy thinking I would snare a wave with 150 people in the water and onshore conditions. Particularly when half of them were learners. Guess Im an eternal optimist.

Up the beaches. Water crystal clear, bath warm, minimal crowds, and a fun swell.

Temples as usual, twice. Glassy when I checked it, onshore when I got out. No other takers

Glassy in the arvo. Two of us surfed hollow waves 1-2', breaking in less than 1' of water. Tide dropped further, too low for me after 2 hours - shitty walk in over the reef

Great looking swell. Drove down to Bondi as a solid set closed out the full length of the beach. Went out at Bronte but there were too many close outs as well.

Long Reef, really fuschia good this morning. And crowd was pretty limited so plenty of waves to go around.

Wind took the gloss off it around midday.

Late session. Left reef point south of Sydney. Thumpy head and a half high plus.

Surfed the 6’4 rounded pin single. Felt smooth, held in tight.

Took a couple of the sets, but they were mostly buckling back in on themselves due to the straight south swell. It needs east.

The smaller waves in between had a much better shape, constant bowl with a longer run so picked off a bunch of them.
