Should have gone out this morning but I procrastinated and then had something to do. Waited till the afternoon and the incoming tide.
Too windy and not as good as yesterday. Great littlenorth bank though.

So Beans, you wanted to go out. But, didn’t in the end.

That’s a “where I didn’t surf today”

No, I went out. Got one okay one butconditions deteriorated quickly with the wind. Got held up on one latish take off.
Monday was surprisingly good though.

After a gale force offshore yesterday making paddling and taking off a challenge, today was more calm. Marginally smaller but just smooth and fun.

Make of this what you will but I was driving along the Passage about 5.30, heading for my local and the radio played a song from my teenages surfing years.
Singing (well, yelling in my case), along with it set the mood for the session.

Yes I made it out the back, I cornered left and right, I walked the plank.

But no. I didn't get my toes above the nose.....😎🏄

Oh. And it was 5° air temp.

Amongst the close outs (the banks are cooked at my local) a couple of nice waves.

Remarkably astute commentary from our resident. “I’ve retired and spend all my time on a surf forum”

Today after my surf I was chatting with this guy who reckoned just up the coast he was watching 8-10' waves yesterday, in the tail of the storm that's heading east

Yep there’s a storm over your way. Will not do anything for us.

Not totally flat here. But northerlies now.
Wednesday I had an hour and a half at my local. Then another hour at The Bluff.

Pretty worn out by the end of all that.

I've had a couple of really fun, really kooky surfs in the last couple of days. Regaining and retraining my atrophied skills.

3-5ft lefts up to 150m long, rocky reef platforms covered with some sand from a river mouth, sort of like a mirror image in shape of Trev's local, but it holds up to 15ft.
