Miami stretch early this morning. Got a few glassy semi peak/ close outs on 5’10. Quartet
called it a morning by 6.30. Geez crowds were descending on it by then
Pity it the banks were on the straight side. Could have been excellent

Look, OK, cards on the table. I fcuked my father up the arse. It was in the car immediately following my mother's funeral and on the way to the wake.

Fairy bower and winki. Shoulder high to overhead. Pretty fun. Not too many out. Probs the fourth time I’ve ever surfed it.

Water quality?

I looked around this morning and a few places looked like a Cholera infection was imminent.

Dunno. It was clean, semi offshore. That’s all I was concerned about.

Manly/ Steyne can be toxic and the Bower perfectly clean and clear.

Longy was as brown as I’ve ever seen it.

If you can get one that runs right through from Winkie it a decent wave. Love the horseshoe at the end.

Especially getting around/ over Surge and you're right. The racetrack is amazing on the right day.

Fun wave but it’s got nothing on the Gold Coast points

Having surfed there regularly for about 12 years, I'd disagree.
On their best days, years. But they might happen 2 or 3 days a year.
I'd rate their average days on a par with Bower.
And there's rarely a sweep at the Bower which is a bonus.

It's fun when it's not crowded. The problem is the guys who sit at suck rock an drop in leaving you caught inside.

I lived overlooking it for 3 years. The best time to hit it was when a new swell was just starting to arrive. Preferably during the middle of the day. The crowd wouldn’t be on it yet. Had plenty of sessions on my own or with one or two others.

Or at first light.

Incidentally, the first time I surfed it I had no idea about suck rock and went straight over it. Board dropped out from under my feet over the step and I got absolutely caned and dragged across the reef. Fun times.

I surfed it a bit for a few years before my Tony Abbott incident & don't think I've surfed it since
+( i have experienced the delights of the full wash through, one of the least threatening hidings you can get cause you know there's no follow up)

I remember seeing Abbott out there one Monday morning, was a public holiday after the NRL GF. Swell was fairly solid, he was riding this hideous blue tiedie/ swirl painted minimal/funboard.

He was sitting at Suck Rock and paddled into one without looking at the guy coming down the line. Didnt listen to him calling him off either. They collided and went over the falls together.

Stern words were exchanged and the opposition leader chose to paddle in.
