Little rip bowl up the beaches. Lots of paddling to stay in place, and ate a bit of sand on a few takeoffs, but I had it to myself and the water was beautiful.
Same at Longy, except it was not a solo surf.
and it was .5 of a ft. I know, I was there. Scored a few on a little bank riding a little fish.

Speaking of car parking. Scored a lovely little shaded spot. DY was repugnant mayhem.

That’s excellent Iggs. Well done.
I ventured down to a well known point break this afternoon. As the tide dropped out there were head high barrels on offer on the inside. Everyone was out the back jockeying for fat waves that died out after 20 metres into a channel. There was about 10 of us on the inside getting 50 metre sand dredging tubes.
It’s been the best Xmas and NY since I’ve been living here. The swell has been 3-5 everyday. Winds have been questionable at times but on the right tide you can still pick up some quality waves. Had a mate up from Bondi for new year and he was gobsmacked about the quality and lack of people compared to the Eastern Suburbs.
I’m gonna go South tomorrow to catch up with the illustrious TOTY. I’ll send him everyone’s best wishes.
Tell him everyone is concerned for his welfare and miss him so much we are almost in tears.

That's disgusting you have been getting epic waves all Summer, Jimmy, cause it's been epically crap down here.

Only if you can reverse park them.

I have lots of room but if any RSers come to stay it will mean meeting up with Crabmeat. And his definition of reverse parking is somewhat different to what you might expect.

I think we all know exactly what to expect.

Tough life you lead Cranked.

This morning was just lovely. 3ft glassy A frames up and down the beach. Warm water and plenty of waves for everyone.

Jesus fcuken christ the post Christmas Sydney shit spell is awesome.

It tried to break itself this morning with a hesitant and feeble minded pulse from the sth, crossing up the 18" worth of easterly swell that's been trickling down from the Goldy for the past week.

Result, waves of a gutlessness no words can describe, so I won't.

I occasionally have to reverse a boat trailer up a steep undulating incline with a 90° turn and a kerb at the beginning. With automatic and low range it's a piece of cake. First try every time. A front towball would make it even easier.

Legit question...why are front towballs not a thing for tricky areas?

They are for savvy towers. But they're also kinda dodgy.
