I got out at Flinders today. Despite the crowds it was good fun and offshore. Maybe 2'. Bigger on the sets. The tide swallowed it earlier than I though it would though...

Well its official people just don't work anymore. Here i was thinking i could get a sneaky few waves at winki at lunchtime today.......

Winki car park - 30 cars, bells car park - didn't even bother checking, southside - 20 cars.

Serves me right for sleeping in on a Monday. and it really wasn't that good.

Cyril's.

I also surfed winki yesterday am. Had a blast - despite the crowds. Would have been happy to only see 30 cars in the car park. Haha. The swell was quite small.
Might get out this weekend hopefully. Forecast is for 3-4 with direct N's so Flinders and the back beachs on the MP should be alright

Somewhere surfy or snowy
Big S swell coming at the end of this week / for the weekend, hopefully it will do some bank re-arranging eh @Ted Harper

For Palm Beach it would be not before time. Had a crafty mid-week paddle yesterday up at Barrenjoey and while the lack of swell did it no favours (smaller than either morning on the weekend and a fair wait between rideable waves) the banks up there _are_ at least still managing to deliver. Water is pretty warm too - still surfing in boardies and 1mm long-sleeve top - so if we can manage the missing ingredient of banks (and the swell does manage to step it up by a couple of feet) I will be a happy puppy!

Surfed with a nice chap yesterday who had made the trek up from the Cronulla area - said they had a bad patch for sandbanks for a couple of months but it had recently got better down that way again in the past few weeks, opening up the variety of peaks available. Fingers crossed.

I've scheduled in Friday morning to have a bit of a look in WP. Hopefully there's a bit of size pushing through...

Picking up right now on the cams/bouy, only 1 out at my spot.
Should be good mid morning tomorrow.
Heading to West Coast tonight for the weekend. :)

I surfed second reef first thing this morning with only 5 or 6 others. I few more people filtered out at the morning went on. The tide seemed to get a bit full / swell dropped a bit towards the end. I might head back down after lunch, maybe to flinders and see if o can score again. Waves were in the 3-4' range early and there were some real nice wallet glassy sections to look at.

10 working days, 15 calendar days :)
FNMOC charts now starting to cover the start of our swell window. Storm track going a little quiet first week of May but still a healthy zonal flow and hopefully something substantial behind it. Should be good warm up conditions at least.

ECL this weekend on East coast!?

Managed 2 surfs both Saturday and Sunday down Anglesea way. Nice Saturday, smaller Sunday but borrowed a mal and went with it.
The regular winter peninsula haunt has a few going through atm. Just went down that way for a quote but had 8mnth old in tow so couldn't ...

We've had a flat spell but with stunning conditions. Had to drag my mal out, wash off the dog pee and scored some lovely little tiddlers the other day. Lots of fun.
Swell on the increase today.
