Some solid long lines from the south were coming in at dusk.

There were some mechanical shutdown barrels in Yamba yesterday in the devil wind. I mindsurfed them for a half hour, knowing full well they were too fast, then suited up and headed out (first time in a steamer in about 2 years*).

Threw myself over the ledge on about 25. It was a late drop, bottom turn, maybe one pump, then eject or pull in.

Didn't make a single one, but I had a blast!
It was like being 15 again, deliberately catching closeouts just for the speed.
Rode my little 5'6" quad with small fins front and back. I like this setup. Instant acceleration, rides like a snowboard.

*The rubber on the inside of the seams has disintegrated, but the suit's otherwise ok. You can't replace the seal can you?

You described 90% of waves for the past year from Long Reef to South Manly.

There were some amazing barrels this morn.
I spent my time getting clipped.
Got one good one.
Saw a few amazing tube rides though.
Almost got a 2-wave hold town, twice. Came up just in time for a quick breath both times.

Well that swell muscled up a bit again today, not size but energy

And fcuk I blew up. I wished I could have been two people so I could surf and applaud myself at the same time.

It says I ripped. It says "I am so happy to be owned by you, with your illustrious quiver of surfboards and your casual, devil-may-care attitude"

Its just a watch Nick, obviously a model designed to pander to your ego, you should have got the Loofy version for a bit of stern admonishment and an occasional tantrum
