Wanda beach. Little wind effected but some fast overhead walls to tear down. Surfed the 7’6 MINI MALIBU so I could roll in early and take the high line covering ground, then link through the flats into the reform all the way to the beach.

$1800 shipped? Yeah nah. My late 90’s stick has enough performance built into it already. Good rocker, rolled deck, low boxy rails, single to double concave, lowish volume etc. it surfs more like a shortboard than a mal. Knifey and response and likes turning.

If it snapped, I’d like replace it with a 7’2 pipedream for only $595.

Surfed superbank and Kirra for the first time. Didn't seem too crowded and still some amazing waves here and there.

Sweep was insane but.

Pah-lenty of swell down here. Shame about the wind but there were some glassy windows of opportunity today. Definitely on the build!

Only for the Parent Hour (ish).. 5.45-7am.

I think a rock shelf big left hander might be good!

So you’re free (or not) during 5.45-7?

I think I know where you’re referring to. Closeish by to you. I can think of about four spots that should have something

So. You’ve only got 1.15 early morning to go surfing.

Sorry seems to be some Brain Damage on my part ?

Boogie boarder died out there today.
The news had video taken from main beach. There was a line of surfers from Johnson's out to Boiling Pot about six wide and unbroken. Surf wasn't all that big but it probably was around at Ti Tree and Granite.
He apparently jumped off that headland between the two.
