The water was cold and then you'd hit a warm patch. Very weird. Surf was cranking at my local this arvo. Four guys out. Haven't seen Shellharbour break as well in years. Mid length single fin (funboard/mini mal) to paddle in early - got very shallow on the inside bank. Will mind surf that session for a month.

Warm surface water migrating back inshore with the southerly.

These pre-xmas swells, when the cube monkey count is low, are a gift from God.

Do you think I've managed to redeem my cube monkey status yet steve, or is it now more or less a lemarchian trait

Lemarckian.

If you understand legion's techspeak it is untreatable I'm afraid.

Most unusual for me but nearly two hours at my local in the middle of the day. Must have been a bit of leftover from Steve's swell.
Fun.

I used the Mayhems in the Ghost and it felt perfectly finned to me.

It was hilarious, I was sitting out there on a new board in 4-5ft Point surf and there were 10-15 people spread across 800 m.

No-one within 50 m of me.

I surfed a cpl beaches south on the higher tide, Steve.
There was some solid sets. Was 5 out when I paddled out. Half hour later there was no one else. Surfed the 6'6.

Do we get a ride report on the new stick?

Yeah, sure.


It was almost a fail to load.

Fcuking nasty, nasty rock-off and I got skittled and ripped the arse out of my boardies and dinged my knees. No damage to the board, so I was able to get out there.

Hang on, school pick-up.

sick!

best thing about this whole week, so far anyway, solid cracking waves with small groups of surfers.

I'm ready.
Bit worried about what the wind is going to do though.
