down the coast 3-4 foot and a few double overhead beach break A frames. Swell had some muscle this morning. It was glassy, no wind until about 11am. No currents or sweeps, just warm clear water and these punchy E/N/E sets. 6 of us, spread out along the peaks. was pleasant.

Never felt happier paddling into a close out today.

Wanda. Must have got in after you got out. It started off ok but there were lots of close outs after the first 30 minutes and conditions kept changing. Lots of people on one bank.

I only went to the local at low tide this week and there are lots of stretches between the pavilion and the south end that are just close outs.

Paddled out for the first time in a couple of months at Bondi. Would have been semi okay if it hadn't been so crowded. Enjoying the fish at the moment. That keeps me interested.

Surfed from 2-4pm. Plenty closeouts then also. But ya know, wait for the right one, pick your line etc. instead of paddling deep you had to position yourself wider as the rip on the rights was running north to south and pretty strong for its size. Too deep you’d just get faded.

Some of them had a decent shoulder and ran a fair length with a nice inside bowl to tear along. The midlength made things a lot easier than they otherwise would’ve been, shifty bumpy etc.

After a long period of inactivity spaced with the infrequent demoralizing session i got my mojo back this morning. Shifty fullish & seemingly under powered for it's shoulder height + size & not really crowded, helped by the chaotic nature of the line up.

a spot that normally has a lot more people out

I got in after 1615. The best wave I saw was ridden by a middle aged guy on a high volume shorty. Smooth and flowing. Quite a few Hyptos in the water too. And yeah, it was pretty rippy. Lots of paddling.

Hyptos are a good choice for Wanda to greenhills. Flowing and walled up.

4hrs in the surf today. Kept saying to myself I’ll go in when the N/E wind kills it. Wind didn’t get strong enough. Had to have a little nap when I got home.

Dodgy afternoon paddle at Bronte. Waters nice. Cops had blocked off Queen Elizabeth Drive at Bondi. Traffic chaos. Would have gone out there or Tama if I got a park.

Ha ha, no. I’d rather pull my eyes out with a corkscrew. AFL and cricket.
