Waves Quality:
- Powerful

Waves Shape:

Description:

The swell was building, having dropped off after the BongofbillsPro.  The water was noticibly colder today but still fine in a 3/2.  I got worked by a wave after about 20 minutes and my back started blocking and twinging - otherwise I'd have stayed in longer.

The waves were big on the sets but happily were quite catchabale at the Point.  Had 4 long rides down past the beach and onto the next section (150m-200m+).... and did a rare thing for me.... stopped the session on a great wave - didn't do that usual kak of paddling back out for 'one last wave'....

 

DSC05336  DSC05341

Forecast sites showed it being 12ft - which made for nice waves at Point and some pretty hectic rides at Supers (not me ;-).  The next day showed the forecast of 21ft swell..... happy that I was about 900km inland by then.

Description:

Started surfing about 100m up from 'the point' towards impossibles - got a few nice waves and a couple of closeouts - then either the tide was changing or I was out of position because for ages I didn't get any waves.  I eventually paddled down to the point and caught smoe more waves - the swell was noticably increasing and I got worked by a couple of waves - I realised I was not fit enough and so gave up for the day ;-)

Not knowing JBay we went in in the middle of Impossibles - and surprise surprise, found the waves really hard to catch for a couple of unfit lame-ass weekend warriors.... we eventually worked our way down to the point and finally had some fun waves.

 

Highlight was two separate pods of dolphins swimming by us, we saw them coing down the point in the waves - and they cruised past at arms length.  vey cool.

This was the craziest surf session ever. Ernst & I went out, just after I bought my new board. We were also the only "dumb" people in the water, apart from a few kite-surfers. Needless to say, our session wasn't very long, and it must've been the worst ever!

Epic day!! 16ft swell in the open ocean, 8ft waves.

When we arrived we saw guys coming out with broken boards. I got a big ding in mine this day too, as did two of my mates. The water was completely crowded and at one stage no one could get out through huge, pushing whitewash. On the back it was smooth and high walls.
