Nice conditions. Got a park on the second drive through. :-)( Nice waves when one came through but a complete shit fight. It was hard to look at the surf without seeing a couple of learners running into each other somewhere. Got one good set wave at the start. The drop in pulled off halfway through so that was good. Went for another one and as I began to turn into it I realised two learners on softies were taking off too and heading straight for shore. I had to straighten out and basically freefall to not run into them. Dudded a couple of others then snared another decent peak. Nice face but someone snaked the inside as it backed off a bit closer to shore and began getting possessive. Cruised to shore on that one. :roll:

Just a bit of exercise really. I basically knew what I was letting myself in for. Still a couple of decent waves is better than no waves at all.

Had another bash today. Got a couple of onshore peaks. Feeling pretty surf fit at the moment.

I'm not having a good run lately. My strategy of patiently waiting for the swell and wind to align on a daily basis is not working. I may have to actually ride around to the western side of the bukit!!!

Consistent chest to overhead, glassy, 15s, no-one out.

Yawn, I'll check it later to see if it's improved.

That's just unbelievable. Counter to almost every surf trip I've been on.

It's the end of the wet season but it's still the wet season so:
1. Surf conditions (swell and wind) are not anywhere like as consistent as the dry season
2. It's very hard to predict conditions but in general it's better on the east coast
3. Surfers are mainly euros who don't come in the dry season and think the east coast is as good as it gets and they stay in places close that coast so accessing ulus etc is more difficult so they don't bother.
4. The "serious" surfers aren't here yet

Just after I went out the wind went onshore, the swell was well overhead but conditions were crap.

I'll try again in a few hours

Just a few warm-up surfs so far this trip Steve, but things are looking more consistent

Dead low at 7:30am, walked across the reef and paddled through the impact zone without getting my hair wet. Just two of us on the primo break, regular head high waves, overhead sets, glassy - we took it in turns, no conflict whatsoever.There was a group of about a dozen surfers on a safer break about 750m away, otherwise no-one.

Wave size increased steadily on the incoming tide. I moved to another peak that handles double overhead and immediately scored a 300m ride up to the other group of surfers, then paddled back and did it again, and again. Then a bigger one that went right through the pack. Had to concentrate on safely moving through them all, a bit like slalom course markers.

Got out after 2 hours. Hopefully the wind will hold off on the falling tide later today.

I hope I haven't offended Trev again. And I got lots for you Steve.

There's been a gentle rain falling all night, it's just cleared and everything is dripping. Good, even head high swell and a light on-shore - no-one out, it's fcuked but could change any time

Went for the late. A mixed bag but not bad if you snared one.

Yup. I waited until the crowd dispersed. Can't believe how crowded the south end got.

Fcuk there's no banks around here. It's dire. As the swell grew yesterday and the easterly wind lay down, there would have been some waves, but there wasn't. Every line just slamming closeouts on straight, shallow banks. Rips are all over the shop, the usual rip locations are not around. If you could grab a shoulder and get 2 turns, you were lucky. Today was worse, nice lines, bout head high or above with a good push, smashed by the wind which picked up through the day to the point of destroying what may have been surfable. Been dire for months now. Water is warm as toast though, good sough dough toast, fresh, not frozen.
