2nd day in a row I have said fccck it and headed an hour and a bit south. 3-4 yesterday, super glassy, 3 other people out. 2ft today and running super fast, strong offshores fccked it up a bit at first but then they settled down and shared it one other bloke. Great little session

This sounds eerily like my session. Were you at a beach that rhymes with Barbara?

Great day’s surfing.
Finally gelling with my current shorty.
It’s a bit more in the style of what I was surfing 10-15 years ago. Likes some punch.

I was surfing when a school of tailor started harassing bait in front of me.

this little anchovy swam into me, repeatedly. I cupped my hands and it hid there.

I picked it up and admired it in the sunlight, then thought, I can't offer you anymore shelter - and released it.

that seemed highly allegoric to me.

I thought he was going to look it in its blinking eye and then drive a hook up its clacker and go fishing.

So my trip away to the place I shall not name (hi Steve), didn’t surf once.
The back beach was 1-2ft and slow and the back back beach that requires a long walk was 2ft but not very good.

Could see the swell traveling on by on the horizon. Must have some west in it.

Came home and surfed with 4ft on the bomb sets.

Hard to tell on the point's sand.

This is my first winter surf experience for about 10 years and the water temperature is more or less OK, in fact its more like the north coast of NSW than Sydney. Current Perth water temp is 20.4, Sydney 17.4 and Byron 20.5. Ulus is 27
