me, my bro and a friend went to pyramids yesterday.
the waves were very small when we arrived, so we opted to paddle around the rocks to the groin (because it was our first time and didnt want to jump off the rocks).
As usual the locals were "owning" the beach, there was only about 10 out all together which made it very crowded, the locals stared us down early but as the session went on they left us alone. The locals were absoulutely owning us, catching the leadge and using the wave as a ramp for inverts and air 360's, ohh by the way stay out of their way cos they get very amgry if you steal there wave (they do it to you lots) and they run over you with great speed its very easy to get hit by there boards or fins. the waves were crusing in about 1 1/2 metres and were perfect for barrel riding, while my friend was doing 360's and barrel rolls. we stayed about 1 1/2 then moved back to pyramids which was starting to pump some good catchable 2 metre sets, it was ultra crowded with young bodyboarders and surfers, so take care. After 45 mins there we paddled back round the rocks and were happy to see the most of the locals had left, the waves pumped out 2 metre sets which were quite hard to catch luckily there were 1-2 good barrel rollers in between sets. i better mension that while we were out we saw a bronze fin about 10 metres from us crusing back and forth, i thought it was a bronze whaler (i know what sharks look like) and caught a wave to the rocks to be safe, while the locals didnt care.
i then spotted 4 more "sharks" futher out and they were splasing around, if you look at bronzies they have big thrashing tails which would do that.
the swell was great fun and probly my best session so far
