Rented a board and surfed this beachbreak just south of Hua Hin this morning. Head-high sets, a handful of friendly Thai surfers in the water for a couple of hours, pretty fun!

Why thank you foamy. That tree trunk seems to have a magic attraction for me - and for many others as well, I gather from the activity often surrounding it. Over the past week I have taken a hundred photos with it in the frame, however this is one of the very few with decent waves in the background. Mostly the surf is utter dribble.

It's got me stumped why it's in the middle of the beach.

Stump is the word I was looking for - I knew trunk didn't quite cut it but my mind went blank.

Shouldn't it be looking for lawn?

well here she comes, rising from the east, not big yet but thicker and grindier.

It’s pretty fast and pitchy but totally makable at North Avoca and around 4/5ft. Gonna have to rock hop. Fark.

….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.

Still pretty small, 4ft. But looks like it’s getting better as the tide drops. Hope the southerly holds off a while...

If you are expecting us to get flogged, then yes, can confirm I got flogged.

Parking was good............but just watched (know my limits). Manly was big up near the middle with a couple of guys on it. Bower was crowded with a guy sitting at Deadmans but not catching anything.

I would have thought the swell is too east for Deadies to have much today?

Had a look around. Bronte and Tama were big and bumpy. Bondi smaller and racy lefts up near the flags but sectiony and starting to get blown out. Pretty fcuking ordinary with the tide dropping and swell rising. I had thought about a jaunt to The Bower....its been a while but figured it would be crowded....then the SE Wind hit and I went for a run on the beach.
