Went with my mates to Cronulla, the waves were pretty fun but nothin special. Would have gone to the point but no swell over there
All in all it was a pretty good day.

Today was the first day since January 5 that there were surfable waves. Really hollow and fun if u can utilize a long board. Really stoked about the upcoming swell.

empty but the coldest earley morning surfing I've ever done. The wind made it even worse but still there was some good waves. The tide was kinda high though so it wasnt to good.

Super Close out, and my foot was clipped by another surfer so I had a lot of pain. But there was a little bit of direction and some decent sized waves.

pretty good session, went to trebarwith at first but the longboarder with us was moaning he didnt like it so came here instead. strong cross-offshores made the waves quite mellow and crumbly, but when a catchable wave did come, there were some very fast fun shoulder-head high walls coming in. a couple people out on the right hand side of the bay, but i was over on the left with a bodyboardnig friend, and we had an excellent lefthand bank to ourselves, long fast walls. no barrells but nonetheless satisfying. got caught inside fucking something fucking awful a few times, long paddle outs and definate currents on the inside.

Drove from VB to rodanthe with a buddy and it was only about 3-4 feet. So we drove to frisco where it was too epic, it was like 8 or 9 feet breaking way past friso peir. no one was out and we were scared of all the sharks so we ended up haveing to drive back to rodanthe. The peir had picked up and it looked fun so we went out. The waves were super wedgy and fun. kinda side offshore winds. At dead low it was super fun and the barrels had sick looking boils in them. pulled into quiet a few and even landed on but didnt ride away from a backside 360 air. it was a sick hatty trip but im pissed i wasted the gas going to frisco just to have it be to big. oh well....

Surfed Lip T at teignmouth at the weekend. Was really good, very quiet. Nice spot about 100m sw of the pier, off of the beach. Bowl shaped takeoff that broke both ways. Left was faster but shorter, right was cleaner, steeper and longer. Haad time to get loads of turns, cutbacks etc. Really good

Water was really stormy and had quite a bit a texture on it. It was my first time surfing there so I spent some time watching the other guys to see where they were paddling out and how they were catching everything. I had a hard time of it. I will have to try it again when the conditions are better. I can tell why it is rated as such a great spot even with the crummy conditions that were present.

I loved this spot because getting out to the lineup was very easy. Just walk along the rocks and jump into the water once the sets pass. Very easy take off and even though it wasn't very big still stacked some power.

I had fun here, locals were pretty nice, mostly bodyboarders. Other tourists besides me were rude and expected priority over respected locals.

Slack session - missioned it around to find somewhere working well but settled for Harlyn in the end - not bad maybe overhead on sets but not a hell of a lot of face on most of the swell coming through, needed to get in the water though..

Drove down from VB with my 2 of my buddies. not sure if the date is right. jammed out to the meat puppets on the way. Arrived at 1. It was absolutly going off. Got tons of sick waves. They were big and sick... the kind of waves you can get barrled and then do a few hits, or do a few hits and get barreld. It was fun and racy and the clouds were absolutly insane. overall a sick hatty trip

Fitzroy Beach is located just a couple of miles north of New Plymouth and is also home to the New Plymouth Surfriders Club. A little further north lies the Waiwakaiho River Mouth, Waiseys or Spot X, so called by Tony Florence. A classic example of what a good river bar break should look like. Takes any size swell ... better at half to full tide.Caught a super session in late December. Wind was offshore but not the typical howling 25 knot gale but a crisp 10 knots ... just enough to hold the lip in suspension. Peaks were running head high to a couple of feet overhead and running into a chest to shoulder high wall. Tip toed across the cobblestone creek ... fed by melting snow from Mt. Egmont to the ocean and paddled out.
The style at that time was to take off deep in the peak they trim forward in a "Paul Staunch" crouch as the lip came over your head across the bowl ... once you made it to the wall you could climb and drop until it dropped to waist high as it curved into the shallow river mouth bar then run up the nose and hang a heel, the wind holding up the wall.
On big days, way out to sea, the outside reef breaks in huge peaks reminding me of a cold water Sunset Beach, Hawaii without the massive rip current, however howling winds make it difficult to drop in and the surface chop will bounce you into next week!

Ouch !!!!! We were only 2 guys in the water. I thought it would be an fun session (see the photo)
But, the swell was really long (11 seconds) and as it was multipeak, it was very hard to catch a surfable wave. I was very disappointed. I have also been caught by a violent set just in the impact zone....
In conclusion, it was not the best session of my life!

drove from Vb with 2 buddies and arrived at about 1. I had gotten pretty drunk the night before so i wasnt surfing to my full potetial. Got some sick ass tubes though. All rights. A paddled out at America street. It was a little inconsistant, but the water was probably 65 degrees and it was like 80 degrees outside IN JANUARY!!! surfed for 3 hours and got sick, bacteria or late hangover??? left and got home around 6. all in all a sick hatty trip

Lies Suffock Park and Broken Heads. The first time I saw Suffock Park it was little more than a remote beach campground surrounded by scrub at the end of a sandy track off a secondary road. We had arrived the night before in a blue and white VW bus with the side windows covered by checkered table cloth curtains and a mattress on the floor. Dawn came and crawling out of our sleeping bags rubbing out eyes we walked around the point and checked out Broken Heads. Broken Heads is just that ... broken headlands ... cliffs falling into the sea with offshore rock islands that looked like they once belonged to the mainland. It was a hot dry day at the end of summer probably 85F degrees at sunup and a light breeze coming from the west blowing from the desert regions of the outback and bringing with it hundred of tiny flies that flew in your eyes up your nose and into your ears looking for moisture.
The wind was slightly cross shore but the cliffs protected the bay between the bookend rocky outcrops. The ocean was oily glass and sets from shoulder to head high broke in two peaks, one out by the furthest rocks and one inside the bay in front of the cliffs similar to Zeros just north of Malibu in California. Quick breakfast of Kellogg’s corflakes with banana (now I cannot eat before I go out period) someone else had melted chocolate frogs washed down by a warm beer and a raw egg (true OZ breakfast of champions).
As we knee paddled out the sun burning on our backs the wax on our boards was already soft by the time we made it to the line up. There were only a half dozen of us out there sliding down the fat peaks and climbing and dropping the glass walls. The bigger clean sets were a little inconstant so as we sat in the line up the water dried on our baking shoulders leaving salt crystals and the flies found us all the way out to sea ... not only did you had to dive off your board to cool down and get rid of the flies you had also to turn your board upside down to stop the wax melting right off!
By midmorning it must have been 90F degrees with 80F water. We had no leashes in this era so were surfing the far point as there is no beach whatsoever just rocks more rocks and undercut cliffs so if you lost your board it was history. The inside peak was better but just too risky ... one of our friends Mr. Jitters (from his Terry Fitsgerald style) caught a beauty inside but didn’t make it ... board was dinged from top to bottom but didn’t break ... two layers of 10oz cloth was common. As a footnote this area is now considered a not so “secret spot” and is frequented by surfers including Nat Young seeking less crowded conditions.
