Doninos is rad! super long rights this year from the middle. The boys killed it in the morning session. After lunch we went back for more, and it was a bit more crowded but not bad for a Sunday. The incoming push also made for more quality waves:)
Arrival of a longer period swell tomorrow! We got some lucky campers this week!

My first session in 2010, so it was good to be back on a board. Nevertheless, it was not a great session !

I had just moved to the Eyre peninsula for work and was mainly surfing the southern reefs like Flatrock, Monument and Sheringa but they were a 3 hour drive. After a solid session at Flatrock I was driving home along the Lincoln Hwy and saw white water just past Arno Bay. I drove down a short track and to the coast and located 2 reef set ups at Red Banks. They were not surfable, only about 1 foot but they had potential in a huge swell. Early May a 6 metre plus swell hit the S.A. The winds were NW, so on my day off I went and checked Red Banks. Not expecting more than a 2-3 foot fat reef wave I pulled into the empty carpark and I was greeted with 3 maybe even 4 foot right hand slabs barrelling across the reef and spitting. I was stoked, no way I expected any kind of decent surf this far up the east coast of the Eyre Peninsula. The wave looked like a mini shark island the way it hit the reef and then slabbed into a super hollow perfect barrel. I ride a bodyboard which was the perfect craft for this wave and proceeded to get small but perfect super hollow barrels without a person in sight, yeew.

What a session ! but it was a cold one. We found really good waves.
After 30mn to a southern sandbank, I came back in the crowd of the main peak. It was perfect !!!

Went out on a stunning Sydney Autumn afternoon with another mate, we're both amateurs/ man grommets which is why we chose a small day as our baptism at the bower. There were two paddle surfers, a guy riding a mal, a guy in a kayak and a Brazilian guy on a short board who was also out there for the first time and me and my mate on a fish 6'8"and epoxy 6'8' respectively.
It was just about bang on high tide, but you could tell it wasn't a very high high-tide, as the water mark was visible on the rocks on the point. (I've just checked the tide reading was 1.4m, and it can get up to 1.7m)
For high tide I was surprised how shallow the water was. This is also due to the fact that as it was so small, we just paddled from Shelley beach out through the break. I can't imagine that you would do this with any size about. In any case, we paddled out and I could touch the bottom easily where we were waiting for waves.
Finally a wave came through that hadn't been snaffled by one of the other longer more adapted surf craft to the conditions, and it was good quality. It was small but a clean little face to follow and presumably do something on if I knew how to surf well. We'd surfed North Steyne earlier in the day and the lines were so square with the Easterly swell that it was closing out perfectly, so this was a welcome change.
I caught two other nice mellow waves which were perfectly adapted to my level. The take off was very smooth with a shoulder and plenty of time to get up, relatively speaking. Generally the waves were very mellow as well.
Would be interested to surf again in slightly larger conditions to see where the waves break with a bit more size. Some of the rocks just jut out, 10 cm from the surface. I would probably consider a helmet if it was big next time, just to tick all the boxes of man grommetry....
The spot itself is breathtakingly beautiful and the paddle out past scuba and snorklers, with people walking by on the promenade, gives this spot a really unique feel. Shelley beach has the advantage of catching the very last rays of western sun as well. Manly gets dark about 15 minutes earlier due to the buildings and trees obstructing the light.
The unofficial language of Shelley beach is French by the way. It seemed every time I overheard anyone speak on the walk out there, it was in French. Vive la France!!

After work glass off, good size and really fun shape, contest was at lowers. Uppers was un crowded and too much fun, good consistant sets, don't get caught inside or you have to wait for the mulit wave sets to end. can't paddle through the wvave on this SSW long period swell. After the secession I'm so so tired, didn't feel like working Friday.

Surf checked Campelo in the morning but it was close to flat. No one is prepared to ride the minimals yet, so we went back to the house to surf the homebreak.
Some current, and the wind is less than yesterday, the sun even came out, but it was so so.
Getting the arms back and going to Doniños in an hour for light off-shore beautiful waves!

So so. Campelo offers wind protection, but the waves were not so orgnanized. Still nice to get our surf in for the day, and be prepared for the next good set:) Milena, Nita, Flo, Henry and Marilyn were here.

Camino Surf: The waves were not that special but after weeks of droughty flatness this was exactly what we needed. Blue Sky, 4-5 ft waves and even though it was sunday, only 4 people in the water (later around 10) - distributing around the three working peaks...

The swell has risen during the day up to a good...90cm !
But I found a really good sandbank at Biscarrosse. My session was 2 stars but people in the water were really fun (and good surfers) so it was a 3 stars sessions.
I got only rights with some of them really good !

I spent a week vacation in Hawaii, (4/17/10 to 4/24/10) took the wife and we had a blast. Got to surf the North Shore 3 times. Thursday & Friday were the best. Going out there on a rental took some balls. I wiped out on my first wave, but i didn't eat it after that. got caught inside once, that was scarry. it was not huge by standard, but it was big enough to get your heart beating. this was my 3rd time at sunset, been to Hawaii several times, and I can't wait to get back. Thank you to the locals, you were cool to me.

Very small waves this morning. I drove all the way from SF, so decided to get in the water anyway. My job starts next week so I won't be able to take off in the middle of the week to surf anymore.
Before today, I'd been surfing two times since I got to the Bay Area two weeks ago. Today, the waves were so small that I could barely catch anything. At least today I didn't keep falling off when waves would hit me, this board is really a lot less stable than I expected, especially since it's so big. The foam top I rented the first time a couple weeks ago was way better, but stand up is a lot cooler looking (in my opinion).
Didn't catch any waves, though, maybe because I'm still really sore from my four hour paddling adventure out at Pillar Point Sunday. I'll be back in the water next weekend I guess.

The waves were really small this morning. I surfed with the longboard. But even with the longboard it was not really fun. Maybe I was not at the good sandbank...

Incredible surf session by the morning last thursday... 6 feet on the set, opening rights and lefts but these last ones working better. Got as many as I could, until tide started going too low. This is a great surf spot on the south pacific, don't miss it if you go around there.

Update: Yesterday was classic! Combo shoulder high swells and stiff offshore Santa Ana's holding up the lip for some really great walls. Was sitting outside and picked off the wave of the morning, a clean head high peak.
Came off the bottom, carved off the top and set up three or four, big, lazy, climb and drops, coming down with the curl, the wind holding up the wall in front!
Easter Parade: Fun session early Easter Sunday morning, Northside Seal Pier. Dead low tide with a mix of fading NW and building S swells. Waist to shoulder with a few head high peaks on the sets, glassy conditions and only a handfull of guys out.
Caught a couple of really nice, fast movers! Barely made a good set wave on a late takeoff with a high line slide, the curl breaking on my chest forcing me down into the pit, but it backed off just enough to make the green before it started grinding again across the inside sand bar. I though to myself i'm going to make it you bitch, your not going to gobble me up, and as one of the young kids sitting inside said to his buddy "Shit he made it!"
Rabbit Stew with Red Wine:
Dredge rabbit pieces with 1/2 cup flour. Melt butter in a Dutch oven over medium heat; brown rabbit pieces on all sides. Add celery, onion, salt, pepper, bay leaf, 4 cups water, and a glass of Merlot; bring to the boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover, and simmer rabbit stew for 2 hours. Add carrots, potatoes, and mushrooms; cook for about 25 to 30 minutes longer, or until vegetables are tender. Combine 1/4 cup flour and 1/3 cup water; stir until well blended and smooth. Stir flour mixture into the broth; cook and stir until thickened. Rabbit stew recipe serves 4.

Sesion guarrilla. Playa multipicos con olas q parecia q iban a romper pero q no rompian nunca. Solo la orillera tenia fuerza aunque cerraba. Ideal para principiantes para sacar los primeros take off ya q todo el mundo esta aprendiendo.
Suerte a todos!!

Playa de las Tejitas is just around the corner from the interntl. airport and was the last chance to catch a wave before leaving back home. Unfortunately the swell is often small and the wind is very strong. No wonder that sails and kites are predominant here.

Don't let the beauty of the place fool you. I had the worst "localism" experience of my 25 years of surfing all over the world, including Hawaii and The Ranch. There are some serious criminal low lifes who live near Mesa Lane, SB. Twenty years ago they stole my roommates classic car, in perfect condition, and joy rode it up in the mountains damaging a perfect car that was irreplacable. Or course, the police were clueless and didn't want to fingerprint the car or ask around the neighborhood if anyone saw anything. What is it about the Mesa? Do the people in breed there? I lived there. I was their neighbor and they did this to me. It is one beautiful place with some serioulsy ugly people.
