Ahhh..... its so nice to have the breeze blowing back from the south. This morning, like the last two there was a hazy horizon that diffused a big round yellow sun, it got quite high in the sky before it was hard to look into. The waves were only small, but plenty of fun with the right attitude. Southerly is going to blow for most of this week and should bring in a decent size swell... Yewwwell!

5.45am : last day of spring

been away

This is only my second post for the week as I've been away from the internet. I took a quick 3 day trip up to Byron Bay with Jack Lynch to meet up with our mate Brett Caller. He was the perfect host. He got us in with the locals at the Pass and we enjoyed some little logging waves all day long.... he even cooked up some tasty food... cheers for that matie!
This pic is of Scotts head shredder Jack Lynch, the boy can noseride alright. more pics from byron will be up on the website in a few days.

Back beaches were the go all weekend with the strong northerlies, even at this very protected corner the wind was having a real effect. The devil northerly has also started some upwelling of the deep cold water. Pack some rubber in the boot if you go surfing today, the water temp has dropped at least 3 degrees. The ocean didn't really look worthy of a picture this morning, northerly still blowing at dawn, however a southerly change did hit our coast around 7.30. There is some north east swell, so check southern corners later today.
 todays pic was taken yesterday around 4pm

The swell is nearly gone. a gentle 1-2 foot swell is lapping the exposed parts of our coastline today and the devil wind (northerly) is up and going already. This pic is of Michelle from Emerald beach.... she's always up for the early no matter how small.

long waits for sets, but there are waves for the frothers amougst us.

water shots

These photos are from 10am yesterdee. the water was clean and clearer than this morning. Waves today were affected by the all night northerly, which is gettin stronger by the minute. large northern headlands that pick up the south swell have head high waves but keep expectations low.

Nice swell still hittin our coast this morning, with overhead waves. better at the southern corners after that howling southerly wind storm yesterday arvo.

Well the swell did kick in last night, but the conditions many of us were counting on haven't really happend. At first light it looked to have some morning sickness from the over indulgent north-east wind which blew till about one o'clock this morning. Still its great to have some push back in the waves.

 early morning walkers, fisherman and surfers would have seen the only glimpse of sun today. A small opening on the horizon from a thick blanket of cloud that looks like it will be covering us for the rest of today. there wasn't too many surfers around this morning however, and that was due to the very weak north-east wind swell, and early full tide. As I write this the winds are swinging more to the west and with the drop in tide, some places may have a small wave for a longboard, southerly change coming.... hopefully more swell tomorrow.

waters warm

Summer is coming on fast. Water temps this morning were lush... most out in boardies. It was only a gentle two foot on most beaches, but plenty of fun to be had with the right attitude. The poor bloke below copped as gash to the head and had to go in for a few stitches, funny how most surf injurys happen in the smallest surf.

dark n stormy

Coffs has had 3 days of solid rain, and its still pouring down as i post todays picture. This one was taken early this morning at middle mullawarra beach, where the East coast longboard event was been held.
Jared Neal took out the opens just beating Brett Caller in the final. Brett won the old mal divison and is showing some solid form coming off a win at the recent Evans head comp.

Brett gettin a sweet one in the semis this morning. 7.45am

the harley party

Gareth Budge was quaffing red and cuttin sic on the decks all night long

The Hoey Moey was on fire last night with the Harley world title party. The best crew of people all joining in for a night that Harley will no doubt remember forever. You could see how much this title meant to the champ and how thankful he was to his mates and his family. Big shout out to Lee Winkler and Andrew Lindsay who organised the party and the Hoey for putting on the show. Great speeches from Wink and Madison Williams who later tore it up on the dance floor... man that dude can dance!
well done harls lets do it all again next year!

waves...sort of

It was super glassy at first light this morning and the waves were a touch bigger than the last few days. today's pics were taken around 9.30am when the southerly was starting to get into anything without protection...... worth a quick paddle for sure.
