2 surfs today. This morning not too bad. This arvo average. But, what a day weather and water wise.
What a difference 100kms of coastline makes.

Just checked the BOM observations for the cennie coast and the wind was more than double the speed down here.
No way. I spoke to a friend at Kiama who said it was blowing a gale
That’s what I meant, central coast looked reasonable winds, Sydney was blowing its tits off.

It's just like the whole country atm.

Wild, destructive weather with rain and flooding in the south. Even snow and hail in places.
Get into northern NSW and Qld and we've got extreme heat and fire danger.

Fcuk, went for a paddle for a bit of exercise and nearly got blown to NZ.
Got halfway back up the beach and just had to stand stationary leaning into the wind to hold my board.

Pleasure Point, Santa Cruz for a late arvo paddle with my boy

Surf was shit but he had a lot of fun. Some cnut dinged my board and on the way home had to go and rescue the wifes shitheap as the battery had died. My reward was we got takeout for dinner, Pork Banh Mi if you must know, and am now necking a nice cold beer.

This day is still a win

Enjoying the temperature drop Groots?

Perhaps not as bad in the afternoon or in town, but it's dropped a lot up at the county line where I surf most often.

I had a surf at Pleasure Point when I was around there. Fun set up. So many points in the area. Capitola was fun for a look.

Not really mate!

Although I'm used to it, the water temps in SC are pretty much the same as Victorian water. My 4/3 Rip Curl suit is four years old now, and it will get me through this winter but not the next. I'm heading home next June for a short visit so I'm going to weigh up whether it is worth buying one there (exchange rate etc)

I got a Buell hooded 4/3 for a little over $200 from Cleanline.

How do you find it?

I was in the O'Neill outlet shop in SC on Sunday as I had to get a new suit for my son as he's sprouted, and they have a few deals in there.

I've only worn Rip Curl back zip suits for 20 or so years but am considering a chest zip one for a change

Steven Shearer. Calling Steven Shearer to the front desk, there seems to be some sort of difficulty needing immediate attention.

Haven't worn it in the surf yet, I'm on the east coast for a few days.

It's not as flexible as a RC or O'Neill. Feels like a suit from about 2015.
But I haven't worn a 4/3 in 15 years.

Yesterday I made what is about my once a year visit to Ann St.

Windansea/ Caloundra Mal Club clubhouse is coming along well.

Meanwhile, supposed to be a NEaster all night and less than a metre of swell.
In fact, clean and offshore, head high and a bit A frames, favouring the left as is normal here.
6 out!
Don't think it ever got above a dozen punters.
Two hours of just great fun.

No repeat today. 😡

Caught a couple at Bronte yesterday. Lovely long lines rolling in. Big clean up set at the end made me think this old fella was ready to come in though. Bigger and rougher today.

I purchased my Buell to surf the frigid waters of Tasty last year and it was more than adequate ... for a 4/3 the flexibility was fine.

Crap at The Bra. High point was drifting down near the flags in the rip and then paddling out to sea to get out of the rip. Shot me right up to the next break. Got an okayish one in so all up a win.
