Surfed 3s and pops today at Waikiki,had the most insane thing,saw what I thought was a turtle surface and it turned out to be a bloody seal.WTF but apparently there called "monk seals"and it's been in the local paper.There are a heap of sea urchins,fun little wave,will post a photo of how crowded places like canoes gets.

Missing number one and number two paddlers.
The back markers are making moves to take over....
If you can't make the training camps you'll lose your spot....

Manly was lumpy and bumpy this morning with a bit of size. Decided to leave the small board on the roof and take out my trusted 12' Venom. It did the job and a few waves were slayed....

Hey Tardy,
Yep it was hard to steer and with no nose rocker it dug in a few times, tried moving back further on other waves/ripples with mixed success. It's a funny wave on the river from the sand bar at the river mouth and comes in a real curve and then changes direction as it hits another sand bar.

OC1 and SUP to the caf? for breakfast.



Not as severe headwind as yesterday for the return.


Lunch, beers, time to surf.


Small surf but almost too choppy to stand.


Selected a more appropriate craft.


Day 3 brilliant.

Finally got some waves at town beach today. Surf has been suddenly gigantic.
Makorori has been looking like this. Even the local Jimmy Lewis rep tow ball wasn't going out (or even looking probably lol)
