Steamer?
were you put at 5am ? the water is still pretty warm
steamer bcos other than boardies all i have is that 2mm wettie.

too cold for boardies - i've just had a cold which turned into a chest infection. probs shouldn't even be surfing just yet, but the waves were too fun.
Uh oh, don't tell anyone you have a chest infection, crabby. You will get a forensic investigation into your past posts to ascertain if you have an alcohol induced immune deficiency.

Went for a paddle yesterday arvo. Fcuking cold and not really in synch. There were some excellent looking waves occasionally but hard to read where they were going to pop up. The only decent one I got was the one I rode in on. Big difference between where the sets broke and where the majority of waves were breaking.

Had a much better time today. Not crowded. I could take my time and get into the rhythm of the sets.

Oh yeah. Fantasy forecasts of it peaking at nearly 14,000kJ next Wed/Thurs and a 10 star rating.

Have all the surf forecasting sites succumbed to false news syndrome? It has been noted by the surf forecasting industry that when large swells are forecast their number of hits (and presumably income) doubles for around two weeks. Are they indulging in accepting somewhat low probability swells to significantly boost their income?

We need a Royal Commission to get to the bottom of this recent trend.

We will have to use paddle boards. It's the only way......unless we use bikes. Nothing under three grand gets over the Spit Bridge.

We can all pile into Loofys Porsche Cayenne for the journey over the Spit.

Oh god! There'll be surfers flying in from all over the world. I'm going fake an illness when it peaks. The Sunday protest on Nick's front lawn is cancelled.

back on planet earth
the ocean was lovely and glassy this morning with what looked like little peelers up and down the beach
close inspection and 30 minutes of paddling up and down the stretch, revealed an swell wilth underlying power of 1.5 joules at 2.5sec

water was warm and clear though

The local is highly populated today.
I assume(hope) when the swell fills in that most will head back to lennox for the grom comp.
