Are you talking Canggu?
That would mean the Bukit is massive.

No offshore yet so big and messy. I went out early thinking the offshore would start soon. No such luck.

Waited for the tide to drop a bit this morning and had the best surf I’ve had for a while.
Hit Manly yesterday.

You're retired and yet of all the days you could choose to go to Manly, you choose a Sunday?

Yep, my sons idea. He drove. Wouldn’t have bothered myself but it was fun. Takes about 35 min on the weekend.
Still stoked about todayssurf. Must have got about 8 set waves.

Conditions have been picture postcard perfection lately. Not a drop of water out of place, colour tones perfect, water temperature just right, some times not even any crowds, a gentle offshore zeffer caressing the faces

I've never surfed at Bondi but watched from the beach a few times.
But whenever I surf at Happy Valley I get a definite Bondi vibe.
No idea why.
Got a few fun ones amongst the holiday crowd this morning.
One left went so far I thought it was taking me to North Bribie.

It’s usually pretty easy to read the crowd and most learners sit too far out for their ability. I wrote a few other specifics and then deleted it :lol: Bondi actually reminds me of South Beach Kingscliff, Fingal or any other exposed south facing back beach on the East Coast. There’s three or four specific banks that vary in quality but tend to break the same when they are good. Deep gutters with abrupt take offs half the time.

Thats a very odd comparison, seeing as the topography couldn't be any less similar.

What, South Kingy and Bondi?…..do go on. Not talking about the reef. You can insert Ben Buckler for that. No it doesn’t break like Cudgen Reef.
