Pretty impressive, left hand point break all the way across mollymook. Just cant get down there today, would have loved to check if a certain point break in a certain bay not far north of batemans bay has a nice wave today.......?

I know the one.
We call it Shotgun, has the rock that pops up dry in the middle of a section down the line.
It would be winding all the way around onto the boulders.IMO

Unreal photos and unreal footage of the Cape Fear challenge! I love seeing pics of what everyone else is getting.

I managed a surf in Adelaide over the weekend. Did a quick search for waves but only managed onshore 1-2' of dribble on the south coast. Came back to the mid and found 1' of clean gutless waves.

Water temp was amazing though.

The Cape Fear contest was insane, heart in mouth for every beatdown and they mostly just got smashed. "Better" or at least rideable conditions tomorrow I think.

Bloke in red with the bald head took the biggest beating before.

I was gunning for Jughead. Seems like a nice guy and legitimately underground, would love to see him win it rather than one of the Bra Boys thugs.

houses and apartments that were stupidly built far too close to the water.....

Yes.

This coastal damage is terrible.
Why Govts didn't legislate a 50-100m building exclusion strip along pretty much all coastline, and other foreshore/applicable river front areas, many decades ago is beyond me.

In other news:

That Red Bull Cape Fear surfing event went ahead on the southern area of Botany Bay today (Cape Solander, Kurnell area) - watched a bit of it, insane. Dirty water, messy, pretty bloody dangerous. But good on 'em.

Really noteable was the composure of the 2 young blokes.
And Richie Vas just getting beating after beating....

Cape Fear .... those guys would be pissed they had to surf that lumpy mess when so many better quality epic waves where absolutely firing.

I hope they got paid to waste their day surfing novelty crap.

That particular Richie Vas wipeout was horrendous!!!! I really thought the worst when seeing that - was thinking broken neck / back..........lucky. Agree, amazing courage and skill way beyond their years from the two young blokes.
