Big messy onshore today so..............

.......I left the new board at home (bum, bum, bum!) and it was out with the bodyboard for a quick session while Michelle took "those who must be obeyed" round the bay for a run and lots of sniffing. Apparently Hermyne was mounting frequent stealth attacks on Hamish also.
Back to the session.
Initially just 4 of us out the back and then just myself and another old guy on a shortboard.
We were getting tossing around like corks waiting for some pretty sizeable chunks to come through, a bit like the pic, but closer intervals between waves and messier with lots of double ups. I was glad the rip by the rocks was working as it is hard yakka on a bodyboard in those conditions, which is one of the main reasons I take it out, apart from the fact is is damn fine fun too and I am guaranteed more rides than those who insist on stand up surfing!
When will I take the new board out again you ask? Jeez let me think now..........maybe ASAIABAT?!

  1. Well that was today and you probably wished you hadn't! Remind me next time about north-easterlies, switching to southerlies and how it trashes the swell and any wave shape. The poor little Super-Fish didn't like it either. It was nice in the water, but I can't wait for all those fucking tourists to go home :)
