No. The wind went side-on, that and the solid swell pushing water down the coast meant non stop paddling for 2.5 hours just to stay in position with regular beat ups when the sets came.

The wind dropped by 1pm and it cleaned up but I was done and a when a big set beat the shit out of me and washed me into shore, I gave up.

Thanks for asking.

The kilojoules forsook you.

Hey Cranked what's the water temp like? Was ridiculously cool bit north of Canggu when I was there in July/August, coldest in decades according to an old expat. The locals - really good surfers, not kooks - were in LS springsuits and even a few steamers!

It's warmed up a lot since those cold days, it's about half way to warm bath now

A few wedges around this morning. Gotta love NE swell. So many more options.

Damn the NE wind but it was better than it looked where I was on the NBs.

Wind may be a problem tomorrow, but should be plenty of size.

Yep. It’ll be about trade off on size vs quality. The day of sidewinding wind burgers

Just had a look out the back. It's pretty small. Maybe 1-2 foot down here! Wtf.

Is that just my part of the coast?

Likely. As it’s 3-4 Ft NE swell here. If you got time probs head to W and further south of it for more swell

Foamy fun at the Eastern Suburbs fave secret spot. Park on the second drive through. Nippers had finally finished.

Surfed the mid Gold Coast this morning and I had a beautiful little bank to myself. It was turning the 1-2ft windchop garbage into fun little zippers. Like finding an Argyle diamond while shoveling pig shit.

I'm not sure if it was a congenital issue or some sort of TBI situation, but the lifeguard decided to set up the flags right in front of me, bang on the only rip within 300m in either direction.
He then flashed his lights and started waving at me to move.

The only bathers within cooee were a couple of elderly non-swimming Asian tourists, who saw the flags and moved 70m to be in front of the lifeguard, then promptly started doing their best to drown, despite being in knee-deep water.

That lifeguard would be seeded into the quarters of the comp, easy.

Don't know what happened overnight but the swell changed direction up here, increased to a bit above head high and the wind went straight offshore.
Apparently nothing happening at Noosa but my local was going off.
I haven't had a proper surf for about 10 weeks apart from 2 waves last week.
Spent three and a half hours in the surf.
Gonna pay for it later.

Nice and quiet at a near-Ulus break this morning.

Perfect long low tide for it and only a handful out. Waves were inconsistent chest high, water glassy and crystal clear.

Great panorama of volcanoes shoulder to shoulder as the dry season smog is starting to lift.

I discovered there's a few small holes in the Bonzer power delivery system.
