Mixed bag...

lolling around at the Rocket

Green Bay swell direction

onshore at the bay...

not finished off well!

Jinshan far end

It was an interesting day. The Rocket's surfers were hiding behind the breakwall as the swell burst onto the centre of the beach. Green Bay was awkward as the swell direction meant the wave went left into the river wall and Jinshan was pretty blown. Dave got a few fatties at the Cliff before they exploded on a shore fact the most excitement all day was trying not to get too smashed up by that was deadly!


Wushi has a touch more swell than yesterday, but the swell looks like it will hit the north a bit stronger today. I'm heading north now, will report later.

Tidy stuff

Nice shaped wave rolling in at Wushi gang this morning. Even though not real big, the lack of wind smoothed things out. Looks like the swell is amping up for Saturday...wax those guns up skegs!

Nothing better than an "Early"

A couple of the boys made an early dash for the coast this morning, got a surf in, then back on time for wonder they were still smiling when I saw them this afternoon. It was worth the 4.30 a.m. roll call they reckon.

Luke P was getting a few nice ones rolling in off the point at Baishawan over the weekend while younger sis Emma enjoyed the shallows. I'm getting a bit worried about how good these kids are getting!!

Flat spell breaks at last

Dave and Cass, Dan, Nicky, Zef and Evie along with Scott and Brian all enjoyed the charms of Pointies on a stellar weather day and a few waves to boot. The flat spell was cracked and some nice waves were ridden. Dan's new quiver got a workout, his classic single fin doing the job (see above) while Nicky worked some magic on the wood veneer super mal. Zef is turning into a very talented little grommy: won't be long before he's outsurfing all of us.
Ran into Mark down at Alleycats and he reported they'd scored some really nice waves at Cliffs on Friday afternoon/evening......we're all happy! (check slideshow above)

some action?

All charts pointed to a little swell spike late arvo/evening and early shots from the east coast showed some promise. Rumour has it that some one (or more) of the lads got out, but who? Maybe we'll get a report...
Anyway, let's hope something is happening to cause a few bumps on our flat seas...the weekend is shaping up OK at this stage.
(this photo has nothing to do with this entry...I found it and thought it looked great!)
