I surfed there the other weekend when we had that swell and it was loads of fun. Usually wouldn't bother with the Alley but had a look on my way to Snapper and it looked good so thought I'd give it a go. Also the thought of surfing with 20 people as opposed to 400 appealed.

Its bloody mayhem out there most of the time. I think the last time I ventured out there was christmas morning two years ago, 5:00am and the place was jam packed ... its a fcuken circus I tell ya, a fcuken circus. The banks are looking pretty good though.

Wasn't a surfer killed by a boat there a couple of years ago?

Yep.

I've had a fat fcuk on a jet ski drive over the top of a wave I was riding one new years day. He literally ran me over, that was around 8 years back. Another time a boat load of half pissed fishoes came careering through the break at Lacey's and almost collected a few of us. The driver of the boat had a bit of a laugh and waved his stubbie in salute as they passed. Its a cnut of a place.

Sounds like the Wild West. I wonder why, when places like the nearby Pass, although crowded, are quite civilised in regards to both the diving and fishing boats. The times Ive been there warning is given, horns are tooted and the boaters navigate in and out carefully and respectfully.

Two foot east windswell mush. Breaking like a dogs breakfast, but a few bowly sections and peaks in the mix. Water quality was appalling, full of storm water runoff, sticks and leaves, chips packets, and fk knows what else.

Which board did your surf in such conditions?

And how did it go?

I saw a clubbie boat go sideways and flip upside down coming in from the surf into the creek mouth today. It wasn't too far from cleaning up a section of the horde.

Been having a blast with the kids pushing them onto little waves on their bodyboards.
They are finally at the age when they find being dumped amusing, and just totally frothing out on faceracing 1-2ft windswell.
Catch 50 waves an hour and just melt into bed at sunset.

I took a board but couldn't do it to myself, went bodysurfing instead and it was a hoot.

Best time with kids. So good when they're completely wasted after being smashed in the surf.

Our kids love it, I usually catch one then realise it's pretty crap. They're too flexible. If I had a JD type one it'd make it fun. I normally body surf as well.

Were pretty much forcing the kids to do nippers. Well, not forcing but they're going to do it til 12 at least. They swim like me, like a stone, but it's starting to pay off.
