Pointies, cruising and flow-riders

Tobes and others got some waves at Pointies on Wednesday afternoon: while nothing spectacular, it was good to get out on a week day afternoon. They were surprised to be joined by a couple of other surfers...sign of the times?

On a different note, the world's biggest cruise ship, newly commissioned has a flowrider on board: imagine the line up for that thing?!

Two's company and 58 are a crowd!

Dave and Dan called greenball correctly, but so did the 56 other guys in the water, with more getting ready to paddle out!
The waves were real nice, but it was carnage out there: this spot can't sustain a crowd like this one.

Let's move on..

As much as I loved that big wave action down at Nan Ao, reluctantly, it's time to move on. If you missed the slide show, or want another look, here's the link: we think it's worth a look.

Dan and Dave are both slowly recovering from their respective injuries, now they just have to get their boards patched up.

Looks like some action coming up this weekend....

You win some and ....

You can probably understand the injury toll after seeing this shot. Here's a winner.

Nan Ao-t of this world!

Just a couple of photos here...lots more to come. Dan and Dave got a first look and were in the water at 6.30 a.m. and got out at 3.30pm the last time. 8 foot plus in the morning, 6-7 foot in the afternoon, thick power slabs were rocketing across the thunder boulders of the inshore. Clean up sets of indeterminate (massive!) size kept things very interesting (I was glad to be wearing my brown corduroy boardshorts) Dave snapped two leg ropes and got pummeled many times on rocks and even stabbed himself in the stomach with his board along with shearing the swallow tail off the MR. Dan carved up every super set going, style and power combined, toying with the killer shore break at the end of each wave...this was the classic day to end all classic days. 4 hours to get home due to landslides on the Su Ao mountain didn't matter...unbelievable!!!!

Tide is nigh...

This is the protected south side of Wushi this morning, closing out a bit, bit messy. I'm thinking Green Ball could be the go, as the high tide is around 11am. I'm not going as the NRL grand final is on, but good luck...go Parra!
