Another set of fabulous conditions for those chasing the personal best times. An occasional meter of swell but combined with a north-west zephyr hardly even being registered, made for a very clean surface. We will see a small SE Pulse tomorrow but then it will fall away to nothing by... Continue reading

I woke this morning for some reason at 5am, most likely following a very early night and couldnt help but wonder why its still so warm in May. The rain the previous night was pretty heavy at our place and hailed for some. All this is kinda strange with little... Continue reading

A zephyr of 3k's met us this morning as we raced for the 6:30 start. A small 1 metre swell and 19 degree's of crispness in the water made for a refreshing kick off. The rest of the week will see the South easter build and the swell will likely... Continue reading

This morning the air had that snowy feel to it. A certain bite in the air like snow had fallen somewhere. On a rising tide the morning was very calm with next to no wind and yet a balmy 21.5 degrees made warmer by the cool feel to the air.... Continue reading

A gorgeous start this morning after a very warm night. With a low tide and no swell to speak of, clearing water and nary, a ripple saw some PB's tumble to new speedier versions of their former selves. PS - Swell expected to rise by midweek with the southerly pushing... Continue reading

Twas a morning for only the hardy. The rain overnight and whistling wind were enough warning that it would be easy in the carpark this morning. While we have seen worse, my guess was about 90 players on the tiles with a balmy 21 degrees in water that was trying... Continue reading

Not a great deal of good news today with a lowish tide on the rise and the dregs of the easterly swell being mixed with a rising SSE wind-swell at 1-1.5 metres and the occasional bigger set. However great news that there were no blueys or other nasty bitey critters... Continue reading

With a low tide and a touch of last weeks East swell, the new Southerly ground swell made for some nice small waves further up the beach but even the low tide couldn't convince them to break at the point. None of that mattered this morning as the bathtub 23... Continue reading

Morning all, and what a spectacular morning it was. High tide and about a meter of ENE swell with 23.5 degrees in the water. Very hard to find a good excuse except for the cancellation of the T3 lane and for all those ferrying kids to schools over the small... Continue reading

Morning all, not a splendid day by any means but spectacular in its own way. A Low tide, 3k's of N/E wind, 1 metre of N/E swell pitching into the point and a reasonably strong rip that had punters playing on the periphery. 22.5 degrees not unlike a bath and... Continue reading

After a southerly howler all night, I expected the conditions this morning. The Northern ends claimed 2 metres of swell while our nook was half that with about 1 metre waves on a high tide which made for a very easy point run. We will see the swell fall between... Continue reading

Around 5 this morning the first cracks of lightning let loose and I thought a sleep in was on the cards but alas too noisy to sleep. So here is the story as it unfolded. With 30 cm's of dribble and an ever so light nor easter puffing occasionally. Interestingly... Continue reading

Hi Jo, Alas I dont have a hoodie but expect someone at the table will realise and ask tomoz. Cheers Brian

This morning I wondered if we had given the hard drives enough time to spin down, for chips to cool off and ready themselves for the myriad of potential that is 2018. After a great few days swimming in offline mode, I did see a few regulars with their usual... Continue reading

With 20 degrees in the water , 1/2 a metre of South East swell and 8k/h of light wind, the swim was looking great till I heard about the dust up at Avoca by one of our sharkey mates and a doctor of all people. I assume mistaken identity but... Continue reading

Morning all, sorry bout the delay, got a tad busy this morning. It was a perfect calm on a slightly cooler morning that saw the possum fur come out of hiding. With a half, a metre south-east swell which coming off a low tide saw a full swell rolling through... Continue reading

With a late get-up today, the Sun was already ahead of us and cooking by the time the tread hit the road. So much so the rubber was not even contemplated. Next to no swell and next to no wind pretty well sums it up. 180 souls took to the... Continue reading

With a high tide and about a metre of south swell, we hit the water early this morning with the 6:40 group due to some early appointments. The water was a bit murky with a green hue mostly due to no sunlight and the early hour I expect, however the... Continue reading

Hey Lainey, You will have to do another winter now. ;-) Hope it turns up. There might be a bit of a black market for these badges. I will see if I can find one for you. Cheers Brian

This morning it seemed like midday by the time we headed for the swim with the Sun already so high you would be excused for thinking you had slept in. With a near high tide of 1.5 metres at 7, it was shaping to be an extra long swim this... Continue reading
