Wales is lovely. Shame it’s the poorest part of the UK along with NE England.

What's some primo Welsh tucker?
White toast dipped in lard. It’s a favourite with Welsh surfers, they call it Lard Hamilton.

That also disgusts me. The food and the joke

Sucked in.

I surfed a punchy 3-4 foot reef point down souf. Bit wind affected and shifty but plenty of runs

I had another quite OK surf yesterday. 9' mal, only a few people out, head high, offshore, sunny. That's two reasonable sessions in just 5 days. The day before though I just watched and waited for 5 hours and then went home.

my god surely SOMEONE had a good surf today, this was a peerless fucken day, solid 4-6' beachies throughout Sydney with clean winds, every beach has co op banks, and I had to watch the WHOLE THING.

Tomorrow, I promise ya is going to be a repeat. Then Monday's gonna be 10-12'. This is what surfing is all about, fucken get on it!!!!

I got 3-4ft peaky lago barrels and pockets.
Just me, a mate, and then another local came and joined us.

Now that I have the JJFs in the chilli it surfs so much better than it did with machados and merricks, the fins I already had in futures.

Frustrating here today . Wind was all over the shop and nowhere had anything clean . Thought I`d wait and see if the island cleaned up when the wind died but it just did not clean up so opted for beers instead . Tomorrow hopefully will be clean somewhere .

Correct. Today was excellent. Found a bank that is very reliable, although a bit difficult on high tide. But as the tide started to drop, there were excellent, hollow rights. I think 6 foot is an overreach but still great.

Today was smaller lefts up towards the north end and big fat burgers out in the middle. Both had a savage shallow inside bit. Smaller lefts were easier to get out to. Just too many people really. If you got stuck on the inside bank you could get easy seven or eight dredging close outs on the head like I did. Should have hit it at half tide.
Parking okay.
