I can imagine the expat crew checking the waves and shooting the shit each morning on the Bukit.

I went out yesterday at 12pm. Paddled up nearly to Padang as I waited for a lull. The set was tapering off so I started paddling out, it went pretty well for a while, nearly out before the next set but got caught by what was to be one of the bigger sets of the day.

Within 15 minutes and at least 30 waves on the head I was a k up the coast and caught in the near shore rip that accelerates around the little headland separating Impossibles and Bingin. Sucked almost to the end of Bingin I paddled out through the channel and started the 2k paddle back.

Got into position at 1pm after one hour of being worked and paddling. Only about 10 out, I sat about 50m outside having a rest. Spotted a big set on its way down from outside corner so stayed where I was. It was probably the biggest set of the day, I paddled another 50m out and was the only one to make it over them. Only 5 out after that.

Caught a medium size double overhead with no competition but it closed out after about 100m. And there I quickly was again, in that fcuking river flowing up the coast.

I proned in on the next wall of white water.

Head to double and glassy this morning, one guy out at 6:30am, no one else even watching.

A lot of surfers seem to be somewhat mentally challenged when estimating wave height.

Here's a video that explains how to obtain a measure of the average foot which should then be useful when estimating wave height.

I love how everyone's paying out cranky while holding firm to a totally abstract and subjective measurement system themselves.

Manly, small but not crowded around lunchtime, got 2 good waves to make the effort worthwhile.

Yeah, I guess a bit of east would have been getting in but it's a south east swell. A couple of people said it was as good as Bondi gets. Shoulder high with the occasional bigger sets. Nice banks.

I'd use killahertz to measure what you experienced out at The Bukit earlier Crank'd.
ie: it'd kill me or hurt me bad.

@beans; "a couple of people said" ... what did you think?

I'd rate last thurs/fri eve as "as good as ..."

Had a look around midday today, it looked awfully good, but i was undernourished and fragile after a huge night.

Managed an arvo kip, downed some leftover mother's little helpers and a few fingers, suited up and, well, despite the slight drop in kj/khz, had a mad few on that sth corner bank.
Cramps in the calves after an hour or so sent me in.
yeah yeah..i know.

Yeah, it was good. Left in front of the skatepark. I surfed it at lunch. Got some great waves. Best one I was going to go in on and again did the classic just one more. Tide changed. The right in the corner started breaking better.

I've had so many good waves in the last three weeks.

With the upcoming swell in Vic this week, there's at least 5 people on Surfcoast 2ndhand surfboards swap/sell facebook that have just posted WTB step-up/gun ads. :lol:

Could be a spike in frothing kooks in the lineup this week.
