Rip bowl at DY. Looked like river rapids paddling out but only one other guy on the peak and a heap of waves.

I hate posting after Cranked's indo updates

Haha. I've been reminiscing about yesterday. The first one I pulled back on, just fcuking go I yelled at myself, so next one I did.

Awesome long drop, a guy further down was screaming something, I turned mid face and had a huge wall for 50m.

Rode it for 150m, the face continually warping and twisting, setting problem after problem, by then it was getting bigger, and looking like a 50m section was going to close out as it moved into the unknown realm of the big, shallow reef in the middle of Bingin bay (that I've never seen anyone ride).

This section completely did me over last week on a much smaller swell. It was straighten out and die it seemed, but I managed to exit over the top.

Repeat four more times in the next hour. After that I waited another hour after but nothing that big came through again.

Yesterday had weather, lots of it.

It rained heavily during the night. Going down the gangs and back roads everything was wet and dripping, fecund with life.

The heavy rain had strewn colourful patches of flowers over the roads and it was a dank foetid morning of the earth

From the cliffs the ocean was grey, the sky was all sorts of threatening shades of grey to nearly black with lightening flashes on the horizon.

Fcuking great day to be alive, it was still warm: the air was warm with a light offshore breeze, the water was warm, and it was an oily glass.

Paddled out, but didn't get a wave and came in after an hour.

Thunder storms with extravagant lighting came and went all day. Surfed late under black roiling clouds and lightning, still glass, got one excellent wave.

Then it really started to rain as I rode home. Sat on the veranda of my room and it was like reliving the battle of the Somme with near continuous earth shattering explosions of thunder and eye searing flashes of lightning. The water was a foot deep in my garden, and the driveway was a fast flowing creek.

of the board? or the turn? for the turn, you'll have to wait for my clip to drop. haha

the board is a stock Haydenshapes Love Buzz. 5'10" x 2 3/8 x 2 1/2

it's so dreamy to turn and go fast on.

Bodysurfed the left ripbowl down the south corner. Heaps of fun. Been at least ten years since I’ve taken it out.

Gurgling two-three foot east swell. Building. Terrible shape. Think I managed two turns on about six waves then came in. This was one of the better waves. Better day for being a cyclist.

Cool how the wind died for a while today - super clear, weird water temp variabilities, muscular set waves to 5', kinda wedged with two swell angles.
