Anyone been up the Sunny coast recently - will be up that way after Easter (haven't bothered going back there since when you could ride Noosa relatively uncrowded). Thinking of Sunshine Beach.

Just back from 3 weeks in Tassy. From the West coast and 4-6 foot bomb sets and an epic adventure to find waves, to reef perfection at east coast and some really fun and strange waves (aka rebounds) in the south.

That place really has it all. Loved it!

eaglehawk neck. no one out too!

Had some fun 3ft+ beachies last night on the local stretch.....looks to have dropped now to around 2ft+ on the local stretch but it is sheltered from the NE swell....imagine places like Manly would still be 3ft+

Who else has scored over the past few days? Not a bad summer for surf this year.....

Looked pretty good. I rode down to Cronulla early this morning (on bike at 5:15am) and as I crested the last hill on the Kingsway was met with the lovely sight of lines of swell marching into the beach. Looked awsome.

On a wave or mountain face near you.
I'm feeling kinda surfed out for the first time this summer, not that I couldn't surf on but it's a great feeling. And I just bought a 7'0" gun picking up tomorrow and will post a couple picks

so it wasn'tt hat great at Aoshima today it seems, nor was it at East End, 1 to 1.5 foot and most of the people out were on SUP's, and 2 of them were female, but that's ok because Mrs TW had her first surf for about 3 years because her shoulder's been stuuffed.
Only a Rotator Cuff Sufferer knows the feeling.
So we are off to check it out.
(Nice drop PM.)

Checked out the Eisbach today in Munich.
At 15:30 it felt around 1 or 2 celsius and was sleeting occassionaly. Here's some pics.

7 surfers but only one at a time

Very nice morning on the Real CC. Surf is up, wind is down and the crowds have left. The lagoon is still doing a very nice river mouth and shallow bar impersonation.
