What time BA? It wasn’t as daunting as it looked, heaps of water under it and a time between sets and waves.

….this was pushing off the wall not diving in.

...running out of breath underwater hasn’t been an issue. Not too bad for a 62 y/o who surfs irregularly.

Maybe around 2. Big set rolled through and caught everyone inside. Well that’s what it looked like on the cam.

Great. Now I'm imagining BA's majestic snow-capped erection, upon which scores of brave men have perished

Had a late look at Bronte about 4:45. Looked about the best I had seen it all day. Really good big walls rolling through the middle and down towards Tama. Obviously easier to keep on going and come in down there as the rip was going that way. A few boards snapped and most were in the 7' to 7'6" length by the looks.
Couple of lids got a couple of okay ones late. One went around to Tama. The other got stuck right in the north corner of Bronte and had a rough time trying to at first get back out then get in at Bronte. You can really get stuck there which he did. Right on the rocks.
Looked like someone called the cops but he had finally managed to get swept around to Tama. Pretty heavy spot to get stuck in a big swell.

Got the rail of my board straight in the temple after it was wrenched from my hands trying to duck a monster set.

Came up seeing stars, really wobbly. Got myself a fat arsed eyebrow and really, really sore head.

Plus my outerislands board is cracked.

Fcuk!! Was having a blast too

What did you surf Shearer. Was it big enough for the Desert Storm up your way?

rode the 6'1" Ghost in hollow 4ft lefts Fri.
The 7'6" DS on Sat in windy 6ft+ rights. Bit over-gunned but godamn it was fun stroking into the them.
rode the 6'6" DS today in groomed 4-6ft almost as good as it gets point surf and that felt so damn perfect.

Surf Forecast has Margaret River main break peaking at 36 feet (36,500kJ) at 10am this morning.

I guess everyone will be at Gracetown where it's protected from the wind and almost offshore
