Pumping but fccck it was crowded. Much less people on it yesterday
AJ said the Bra had more people on it than the Farm Paddle out. Sounds like a nightmare.

What an amazing couple of days. Point was clean as a whistle today and uncrowded. Not sure why. Anyway the AB six channel flew across those waves, got me into two barrels at speed (one shut down, the other I snuck out of) and had me smiling from ear to ear.

Yesterday was heavy, big deep water bombie left. Tide was too high but man! Such a blast.

/\ the bombie close to where you live? If so, saw it yesterday on the way down south. Looked heavy on takeoff, then shouldered off quickly. Also looked at headies and sandon on the way south, both were cooking but packed out.

Yep, I reckon you saw it at high tide, as it got lower there were some crackas. Headies by all accounts was a circus

I love the look of the right off that bombie. Every time I’ve checked it but there’s been a stack of current running. And it looks like you’d end up in no mans land and swept around to the next cove if you didn’t scratch your way inside in time

Last legs of the weekend swell but still lots of fun and no crowds.

The rights are great with more south in the swell. But also in east, just be ready to cop some big sets on the head. I go left mostly!

What’s the paddle in like on the rights? Or is it a hitchhike back from Stanwell park ?

The left at least has a channel

Despite the onshore wind arriving as I parked the car still got some nice very uncrowded waves.

Crowded but managed to snare a few. A few complaints in the water about ignorant fcukwits dropping in and attempting snakes without even realising what they were doing.

South Bra in the Southerly. Some okay looking windy peaks rolling through but tended to not join up with the shorey. Fun drops though.

Honestly, the sweep ain't too bad.

No paddle in, you have to go back to the beach the other way or attempt the locals' over-the-rockshelf technique

4th day in a row and the best of this run of swell (in fact for me for the year) - keep on giving autumn.

Fcuk, I’ve been averaging 4-5 days a week for the last five months. Stoked.

Those waves at Rainbow Bay that are running on YouTube lately looking like the Rainbow of old.
