There's a top of page to be proud of.
Bondi had flipped the switch to summer mode today. Fcuk it was packed with tourists. Some okayish banks but way too crowded in and out of the water. Mind boggling range of people.

Lot of angry blokes in the water today.
One bloke called me a cnut because he wasnt sure which way he should paddle, as he paddled directly towards the peak, to get out of my way when i was paddling for a wave.
Lots of shouting over various blatant drop ins.
Good banks though.

Well that was fun. 3-4 foot. Kilometres of beach to choose from. Waves peeling off everywhere. Single fin, highline, cutback.

Ah yes, cannot wait until it really warms up. Missing Winter already and it’s not even over. I might ride a log all summer.

Here’s another right further up the beach. This one was a little full. Second wave of every set that came through was the pick, it had more cup to it.

You should’ve made the trip beanpole. There was plenty of waves, banks all over, not al that many people, and parks everywhere.

Bondi looked similar with a cast of thousands. Tama and Maccas looked great but as usual reports said not quite as great when youre out there. It's often a classic case of waves looking that bit better if you are looking from a bit higher up. No parks.

Yes would have been worth the trip by the look. It's not that far. I was actually thinking it was going to be huge with a SE Wind and had pencilled in a check of Neilsen Park.

^^ Looks fun. I reckon surf wise, in terms of variety it’s the best place in Sydney. Although I was happy to get the fuck out of there in my early 20’s

I was going on the "biggest swell event" ranting everyone had been going on about all week. Actually more of a west facing harbour novelty break. :)
I think there's more chance of the pumice invasion.

That’s merries reefs, and voodoo just near it.

Voodoo would’ve had waves. And yesterday midday onwards would’ve been insane. But, these days - drones, jetskis with camera crews sitting in the channel, 50 people shoulder to shoulder trying to take off the deepest. Too much noise out there these days. I tend to hit it at opportune times, weekdays picking windows when the conditions would sorta slip under the radar a bit.

Well I ended up at the Roy. Was a lot different to what I was expecting. Got a few sliders so can't complain.

Tarnished a bit by a dad with his son. He was calling him on to waves with no thought to what's happening on the inside. Dropped in on me twice and forced me into the reef.

I really wanted to have a word with the dad but figured it would come across a bit too aggro. Hope the kids works it out before he drops in on someone less easygoing.

Steve, You’d love voodoo. Never surfed red bluff but it kinda looks like a shorter version of it

fcuk i got so skunked today. Maybe 2 good waves out of 2 x 2 hour go outs.
The worst of it was at the lake mouth this morning. The lake has closed over again, happened rather quickly after council had spent bucketloads trying to open it up by moving mountains of sand. It was epic walking down and getting out. Saw 4 or 5 really beautiful sets. Good solid 4ft glassy rights. There were 2 guys on it getting waves so we knew it was a fairly consistent takeoff, not too shifty, as can happen out there. Just as we paddled out to the spot a bomb set cleaned us up, then, quite quickly, the wind changed and a 15 knot sw blew up and turned the surf to shit in about 5 minutes. Then a hell current started up trying to push us toward the island so it was a non stop paddle to stay in position, then the rip moved into the line up and then a giant lull set in, like 20 minutes. Then a couple of bomb sets kind of cleaned things up a bit but by then the tide had started filling in so the sets kind of stopped breaking out on the peak. We missed it by about an hour or so I think. This afternoon it turned on out the front for 3 sets, then went straight closeouts for an hour, then a bit more of the same.
