Was still plenty of swell this arvo but just enough strength in the NE wind to ruin it and not enough tide for the spots that were cleaner.

It's about 20kt onshore here and pissing down. I'm about to go out and it'll probably be crowded.

I would have bailed on the 20kt onshore, pissing down and crowded.

Perth surfers are nothing if not keen.

Banks turned up just as I was finishing that last post and we're still jawboning

I got to the carpark and it had started gusting 35kt and so much rain I couldn't see the water during squalls. And the waves sucked. I bailed.

Light offshore, glassy, a long wait for the double overhead sets. Thirty out at Padang, four at outside corner, no-one at the peak or the bombie

my god it is still fun as hell here today! There's gonna be a whole generation of groms who think this is just the way it is

I had a lotta fun yesterday surfing with all the N+ grommets, there's a seething lil pack of them. Some buddy of mine was on the beach, just coming out, and yelled at me so I yelled back, like "Aaarghh!" All the grommets were looking at me, all about to burst out laughing. I said to them "You should always yell as much as possible." So they just started yelling like lunatics! The lineup was in chaos.

A foolish man came out surfing at the Peak last week, a large man with a huge fat head, he tried to nudge his way into a spot and made a bit of a fool of himself in the process. Later, on the inside, he actually lifted a fist in a threatening manner toward one of the grommets. Can you fcuking imagine? I wasn't out but one of my scary friends was, he paddled to the fat headed man and said, Here I am, why don't you punch someone your own size. The fat headed man did not take up the offer.

Perfect conditions, the swell has filled in, consistent double with triple overhead sets, 6 at the bommie, 2 at the peak and 10 at the corner.

Like why would anyone, a full adult, threaten to punch a 13 year old kid in the surf.

Just had a fun surf at DY. DY on a Saturday. Haven’t done that in ages. Waited for the tide to start dropping, the wind went a bit around to the North, so it didn’t look as pretty and clean as this morning. Crowd just disappeared. Still plenty of waves.

Shocker today. Picked all the wrong waves, catch a few close outs, head up the beach to where it looked better and then good ones came through where I had just been. Rinse and repeat.

Ah, how times have changed. Obviously these days grommets aren't cheeky little shits who are routinely persecuted by all older surfers as a matter of course. This is why the Brazzos are winning.

unacceptable. but you know, pressures of modern life. up to his balls in it, fewer surf opportunities, have a chat with him some time, "u ok mate?"
