Creampuffs this morning. Swell just starting to muscle up. Just me and another bloke trading waves for the 1st hour.

Was all good until 4 pilot boats decided to run up and down the point, with a chopper in tow. Obviously shooting footage for some kind of promo/story. Made a right fcuken mess of things :evil: .

It's coming. :shock:

Just scored the closest thing I've ever had to Kirra, without being at Kirra. I won't have to surf another wave of this swell and I'd still be happy.

well, there WAS a little bronzie chasing baitfish around but I doubt the camera could pick it up. only one shortboarder on that left this morning, the fatboys on nine sixes were slogging it out over the rights and as you can see, failing miserably. :D

It's ridiculous how much like Kirra it is (was, after this swell event, the bank might be wrecked?) Don.

Size was a consistent 3-foot with waves as thick as they were high and just throwing hard on the low tide. Every 12-15 or so minutes there would be a 3 or 4 wave 4-5foot set ... It was easily the best surf I've had this year. It felt like 2 hours of being inside a barrel.

Longy. My first pre-work surf. Big and lumpy and shifty; not ideal for someone on a 9'6'' mal who's been out of the water for a while :oops:

Wore a few on the head and only caught one. Not ideal but I'll take it.

I take back every thing I have said about Victoria, surfed everyday for the last 2 weeks, had 4 surf over the last 24 hours all 4 to 6 foot. Life is sweet. Having said that all the forecasts say tomorrows the day, so chances are it will be a hoax like 2 weekends ago :D

Same as don, but a bit bigger. Finally got my singlefin into some juice. Like a hot knife through butter. So much fcuking fun it felt like it should be criminalised

Well even though I only got to surf once this Easter, based on the reports around the traps and from a dozen of my mates, this would have to go down as one of the best Easter's with consistent swell, winds, banks, little crowds and perfect weather. Happy Days and let's hope the rest of Autumn continues like this!!!

Best I can remember for a while, Don.
I've had 4 surfs at 4 different spots on 2 different boards with a few different fins, always at least a 7/10 and largest crowd was 5.
Should sneak another tomorrow, Huey willing.
