Cronulla point again. Less size, punch and consistency than yesterday. Surfed a 6’3 thruster. It was fun, but on points and reefs still prefer the Cadillac feel of a longer rail line to push off and one fin. Just one thank you.

I rode my bonzer last 3 days.
First day felt cuckoo crazy then the last 2 just deluxe.

There's a point when you have a wall in front of you and you put the board up there and it just...... lets go.
It felt so good today.

when's the last time you surfed a thruster out at the point steve? betting a long while. i've gotten to the point that i only like them in beachbreaks, or sectioning and uneven waves. they just feel like noise to me on a walled up point or reef.

no, just riding different boards.

Soon as I saw those offshore stretched out walls Sunday my mind snapped back to bonzers.

You definitely have more versatility and variety in your turn angles with a thruster but there is something marvellously freeing about that single fin/bonzer feeling at a certain speed.

fcuk it's fun down here today

in other news, Barrinha just kicked the shit out of the Pool. I bet nobody predicted THAT. Best mens round one of the year. Free, unpredictable surfing, the way we know it to be. The two closing rides of JJF's and the Mongrel's in their rd 1 heat obliterated anything done last weekend in Lemoore.

Plus there's heat in a CT that just isn't present in a semi faked up "national teams" gig. Actually there's more heat in this CT than in any of the three Aussie ones. Maybe the Margies thing then the Pool has fired everyone up a bit.
Just watched the highlights. Best Brazil event I can remember. Watching this wave just highlights how ridiculously boring the pool is.

#metoo

riding a crazy little board right now, designed by none other than my little brother. It's weird because his boards are usually pretty much unrideable but this one's super delicious.

Oh no, it's a design based on something pretty old and tuned up with Max Stewart. I'm a bit blown away to be honest.

Swell dropped off a little by first light but kicked up a bit and the tide dropped and the rain smoothed it out. Got more kegs.

yesterday I surfed two of Australias best waves, both weirdly uncrowded.
this morning dawn patrolled micro peelers at the Pass with my daughter and her mate.
