The Bata Bay skatepark is probably the best in the state, central coast has got that going for it.
Bata Bay??

We used to hang up here every holiday for many years. Haven't been back in ages. Went for a walk around The Entrance this arvo. What the Fcuk. It was always a bit cheap and cheerful. Now it's half boarded up and looking like something out of Hillbilly Elegy.
Yes, not the best. Popped up because the local rag said there was a weekend market. Bloody terrible joint. Market was like a bad dream with carnival folk in it.

Gosford station, saw a knife point robbery a few weeks back. Ice is big.

The central coast is huge. There’s good and bad. Some quite good but some real bad.
Tattoo Parlour was about the liveliest place in town at 5:30 apart from the amusement park. Heaps of abandoned and burnt out houses down near Long Jetty.

I presume you mean Bateau Bay, Channels

Was so shit down the coast. Onshore dribble and no banks. Went out and got 3 closeouts just to get wet. Water temp has dropped too since yesterday. Bout 19 at the moment.

Absolute shite for weeks. Had a great swim in the rain this arvo though at Bondi. Bronte has had heaps of weed for some reason and a very deep stretch right across the beach. Quite hard to get across it and onto the shallow outside bank if there's a bit of swell. Water seems to get stuck in there. Drove past this arvo and the drain was pumping out filthy brown muck into the north end.

….this was pushing off the wall not diving in.

...running out of breath underwater hasn’t been an issue. Not too bad for a 62 y/o who surfs irregularly.

How’s the water? Looked pretty horrid around NN and Warriewood. All lagoons are open.

Great. Now I'm imagining BA's majestic snow-capped erection, upon which scores of brave men have perished

Went down to Bronte. Some biggish lumps coming through at Tama. Decided to go for a swim in the pool as the water still looked dodgy. Plenty of crap on the beach including a washed up dead pigeon and a sanitary napkin. Pool was okay but getting a bit cloudy.

It’s brown and pretty gross. I’d say a fair amount of storm water and horrible shit. Plenty of weed as well

Water's brown, banks are mushy, waves are bumpy.
But better than a flat spell.

Been stellar the last two days down here. Headies had some absolute smokers coming through yesterday. I counted a bodyboarder in a barrel for 6 seconds. Outrageous! Today smaller but still throwing up some great waves.

Got some great waves on dusk.
Tropical rain, cleanish solid sets, flying down the line.
Caught a set to come in from big pine to the hut, onto the belly and straight in.
Best way to end a surf
