Certainly more size this morning and pretty heavy given the low tide.
But bloody lumpy and bumpy to all hell.
Had a good hour and a half though.

Bloody heavy this morning.
Straight East swell. Dead low tide.
I got a few good 'uns.
And paid for them. :twisted: :twisted: :oops:
One rag dolling actually ripped my watch off my wrist. Gonzo.
Damned thing was only about 20 years old too. :roll:

Probably one of those rip curl pieces of crap. Now you can get yourself a real timepiece .
It was a Casio Reg.
Lightest watch on batteries I've ever come across.
You won't catch me paying money for a surf brand watch.
Might find one in the floods debris though. 8)

It was way before the GShock came out I think.
But I really only wear a watch in the surf because as I get older I wear out pretty quickly :oops: and having a watch reminds me I've only been out for a half hour or so and to stop wussing and get on with it.
If the surf's OK I try for 2-3 hours.
Also wear a watch so I can remind the other early birds it's time for them to go to work. 8)

Agree about the G shock, I've tried plenty of others but have come back to the G. Don't know why I ever left it.

Back next Trev, just in time for this swell to disappear.

I ummed and aaahhed, the beachies were still a bit wobblie, though unattended and a sly left had a rip running through it , leapin Leroy the dairy farmer stabbed a few through the neck.
Col the busdriver got a nice shack through the middle section.
There was some fun, no bikinis on the rocks, just an honest competent working mans crowd.
Everyone seemed to have fun despite the fact it is 2012.

I learned long ago, Steve. Never follow a dairy farmer. Anywhere. Given it is 2012, even more reason to remain vigilant.

Let us give praise to Jesus that you survived. This time.

Much more fun today up my way. But jeez it's getting crowded as all the shortboarders turn up for some local knowledge before the Pa and Ma bendall Comp at Easter.
Cleaner, marginally smaller but still bloody heavy if they hit you.
Watched a young kid take off on a serious peak. he was a fraction late and went out and down with the pitch ...... and made the drop. 8)

Nice to see you getting some juice Trev. I surfed Palmy yesterday. Utter poo. Tide not shallow enough for the outer bank but too shallow for the shorey. The usual Goldy crapola of late.

Surfed a completely different location this morning. Whilst there was blokes either side of us, myself and my mate shared a peak that ran for a reasonable distance. Got way better on the bottom of the tide. Today made up for the shit I surfed yesterday.

Marginally smaller today but great long rides.
I had to cut the session short after about an hour and a half though.

OUCH!!!! Shame about the foot, but I'm impressed of the little damage to the FCS plugs.....particularly the front one. I did the same thing on my Maldives trip last year and had to do some serious repairs on the front FCS plug as it had compressed into the deck. Was back in the water in a few hours though after a reasonable self repair job if I may say so myself.

I figure I hit it pretty hard to drag it out past the grub screw like that. You can see the gouge in the plastic of the tab where it was forced out.
Only 5 stitches but no surf till they come out the day after Easter. :evil: :twisted:
I rode one wave like that before I realised I had done more than bruise myself. Then another one in to the beach after I saw the blood and felt the flesh flapping around.
Only saw the fin when I was putting it in the car.

T'was our town's centenary so had a small quality surf before the Easter Hordes begin to arrive and between surf entertainment was provided for me to photgraph,
A Lockheed Super Constellation landed at the airport behind the beach and the RAAF Roulettes rolled out their Roulette routine. Then coffee and a surf comp to shoot tomorrow :D
