my thoughts exactly, Nick. (going on the above)
Mind you, I stumbled upon the vision splendid at Bronte inadvertantly at around 1015, after collecting a chap I support from St Vinnies aged care joint up the road after his 3 week respite stay.

He was delusional, determined to board a flight to NY later this day to preside over some fantastic legal case (former judge dude w Dementia).
I was grounded in realistic gobsmackedness at the sight of empty overhead peaks fanned by a light offshore beyond the palms as I Beanpoled a primo carspace across from the cafes.

He had black tea, I had an espresso.

It cost 9 bucks, the scenery priceless, the latent angst I felt, insurmountable.

Yesterday my 7’4 pipe dream got a run.
Got some nice big drops, but after the first section the wave wasn’t so serious.

seriously did you guys all just walk past Tuesday like it didn't happen
I surfed Tama, was decent size but not gnarly. Didnt have a great session, hard to get in position but got a couple nice ones. Planets just aligned for me today.

Bronte was not working at all when I checked it about 9ish.

Hopefully this big Sth swell can clear the ballina bar out and we can have a bit of a reset.
Nth Wall has had about 5 decent days in the last 18 months to 2 years and they weren't even special.
Need it back to take the crowds away from all the other breaks I used to get mostly empty.

There was a guy out at Tama yesterday on what looked like about 11’ mal. He got a couple of big ones. Fun banks. It’s good it eases off before the rocks at the moment. I was tempted to go out but after today’s flogging I’m glad I didn’t. Even on Monday it was a pain paddling back out at half the size.

Went back out against my better judgement today. However a lighter crowd and a more thoughtful strategy allowed for a much more satisfying surf. Culminating in catching the white water off a big one from outside. Hit the reef and bowled out. Then it walled up fast along the Shorey right down the beach with some size. I chanced the last section but had pushed my luck a bit too far and got smashed in a couple of inches of water. Stoked.

More crowded today but did snare one good set wave which all the longboarders missed due to them being halfway to NZ.

My local was crowded early and a bit too heavy for me so 4 of us scored around the other side of the headland.
Just 4 of us.

Watched a drone clip of Kirra. The number of drop ins was shocking. Four guys taking off together on one wave. Quite a few of some guy getting barrelled behind another drop in.

Bronte was wild and woolly this morning. Really south swell and for some reason two guys way out. One guy sitting half way to Tama. He looked like he was going to get stuck when he finally made one.

Yesterday some well overhead reef action south of the gong. Wonky with the strong cross-shore but still had some shape. Today south maroubra with some four foot plus peaks

Crikey, it was fcuking PUMPING down at the point this morning. Easy 8ft sets, loads of power. Saw a few epic drops, caught a few smaller ones that ran all the way to the beach. Stoked!
