A high tide and gentle N/E swell and no wind to speak of but some really chilly spots along the trail. The relentless Noreaster has dragged in some cold current though still patchy, it will likely get colder before it fades. Bring back the sou easters and warm water. The... Continue reading

Thanks Edwina, that second one might be you as I recall. Remember that day back in winter when I met you swimming back.?

Morning all and what a sensational day. Apart from some seaweed in close, the water temps were over 20 degrees at last and conditions were excellent for all those tuning their personal bests. The tide was high and no sign of the killer wobby attaching to anyone to affect their... Continue reading

Ahhhh spoke too soon.
Thanks Inge, yep screwed that one up. Surprising I havent heard from him though. Im sure its coming. However it has been fixed. ;-)
It was hard not to mention the wind this morning as the nor easter pushed us down the trail to the clubhouse. It was about 1o to 15 knots at my guess with a good cover of white caps by 6.45 am. Certainly not what the forecast predicted with 1m... Continue reading

With an ever so gentle 3-5 knots of NNW wind washing in, I fully expected a chilly water temperature but no, 20.3 and balmy, definitely no wetsuits required and with an hour to run to high tide it was a case of great conditions once you got past the trifle... Continue reading

A whippy but variable 25 knots of serious Nor Easter had conjured up a treat this morning with 1-2 meters of swell. Compounding the conditions, the low tide and already heavily sanded point from the last months of building gentle swells made for a careful bit of navigation out to... Continue reading

Another sensational start after a glorious long weekend. Bindi was pretty sure it was worth a dip. Some nice little waves but for most of us it was a north trip due to the infest. The board said all good temp wise. The crew were happy with the temperature. But... Continue reading

With Sunrise at 5:50am , its getting harder to stay in bed and even harder to then not do the 6:30am just for good measure. This morning with the 1/2 metre residual SSE swell mixed with the north East wind swell, it was a bit lumpy but also meant some... Continue reading

A warm spring breeze met us on the walk from the car park lulling a sense of hope that the water might have warmed up. The sun was shining and the water was close to a sheet of glass with no wind to speak of. The rest of the week... Continue reading

Thanks Simon but didn’t quite get Jackie O but the bagpipes were a winner.
Well the morning started quietly with nary a zephyr and the 4 metre swell was somewhere but not in our corner. Classic conditions just a wee bit chilly in the 15 degree zone but it was only a minor distraction really. Around 6:30am John Bond showed me a small black... Continue reading

Yep it was cold, but refreshingly so. Once you got to the point it warmed up at least 1 degree. A light easterly breeze and next to no swell at all and zing in the water at 15.5 degrees. That was the summary, and the detail will see the swell... Continue reading

My usual vigil to the east before the swim was even more fortifying than normal this morning after I had to brave the path in bare feet as I could'nt find my uggs. The Westerlies as you may be aware create the cold conditions as they move the surface water... Continue reading

Morning all and another cracker start to the day with small 1/2 metre swell and next to no wind from the south so perfect for the corner. Water was clearer than I have seen it for a while and with declining swell through to Saturday and westerly winds you can... Continue reading

Yep sorry, meant to say $30 for hardcopy, I think it should have ready discounted from $50. Good pickup.
Hey Bernhard, I had already published the Blog but I added your notes to the end but it may not make the email pickup, not sure. Sounds like a very lucky morning. Im guessing the Seal entres probs have them patrolling the area. I remember Roberto Suares story of the monster that surfaced eye to eye with him. Same place. Cheers Brian
With the fading S/E swell falling daily to a low of centimetres by Saturday and the dominant west south westerly's, we can expect a week of primo conditions for all. I would expect to see the water clarity slowly improve through the week as well, as the swell motion dies... Continue reading

A metre to metre and half of South East swell with 10 seconds between sets and light south west winds up to 9 knots was mixed in with threatening distant rain clouds. While a little dark, it was really warm in the water with a toasty 20 degrees by the... Continue reading

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
