The Trigg stretch was quite good this morning. Regardless, it was nice to get back in the water after 7 weeks out with a shoulder injury... I only managed 70min before it started to ache but I was happy to have managed a dozen or so waves without being a complete kook! Hopefully I pull up OK and can get another dozen tomorrow! I get the MRI results late Tuesday so hoping its Physio rehab and not surgery...

Best of luck with the shoulder GPA. Good news is you havn't missed too many good days & got in the water on a magic day. Missus & I just got back from Perth after catching up with family & celebrating our 20th Anniversary. Surf must have been good everywhere yesterday & today. I could see the outer reefs going off from my olds place in Beaumaris.

Thanks Mick... there's been a couple of days that I would have liked to have been out there - but I have been trying to do the right thing and rest it for the long term fix - but after 6 weeks of physio and a cortisone injection it's still clunking and popping like a bowl of Rice Bubbles "snap, crackle and pop" for the younger generation out there

Pathetic today - even on the longboard. Tide getting full very quickly... Point Packed had some shape early but was way too crowded for the size of it. Time to get on the bike and enjoy the sunshine...

You should come up and checked out my local on Sunday if you were in the area. Was loads of fun with just myself and two others sharing the point..

Was just up that way until 1500 Sat hanging with family. Then checked in Parmelia Hilton, caught the ferry to Mr Walker restaurant on the South Perth Pier. Had beers & a seafood platter with Moreton Bay Bugs. Was epic

Yes I am - I know it. I am having trouble convincing myself to go out when it's average - which is often! I'm losing my froth!!

How much weed is around atm?! Trigg is as bad as I can remember it... and North Mullaloo is so bad not a single person was out - not even the 12yo groms. I surfed Nth Scarbs for a couple of hours from 10:00am - got a few in between the rips, the drift and the close-outs. Still offshore now at 2:00pm if you are keen

From trigg to Scarborough, possibly fartherer
I see weed
I see seaweed

banks are all gone , taken by the storm.

I see weed I see seaweed.

( I'm sure it was pumping somewhere just not where I was than I ran out of time and refused to drive further)

No weed for me, two surfs today (second wind came in just as i got in so got straight out). Parking this morning was beyond nuts, but people were spread down past Rambos so was still enjoyable..

What a day though, how amazing was the weather, love this time of year

LOMBOK REPORT - April 13-23
got Are Guling as good as it gets on first 2 Days..3-4ft overhead to Double over head. No wind, structured crowd of 6-12 with manners (2months of not surfing at all here meant the arms and chest/ribs were screaming after 2 surfs a day) Paddle out is close to 800m, each wave is close to 100+m means you get a few ks into the arms
Swell arrived as did the Trade winds.....AreG was big BIG i guesstimate some 15-20ft faces thank god for the wind, had a squizz at Mawi...6-10ft BIG clean but the difference in waves to sets was daunting...watched some experienced expats take it on and the 40min paddle out (strong currents and consistent duck diving) didn't seem to inviting, especially when 1 of the guys finally caught a wave only to get smashed, snap his board then get mowed down by a set of 10footers all on his first and only wave....GOOD TO WATCH though.
We waited for the tide in the arvo and patience paid off big time ...went to Ekas Insides and scored ultra clean long right walls with 1 guy out when we arrived and totalled 6 when the moon became our light source...again ultra good waves head to double head, one set closed out the peak to channel causing much "merriment and sphincter twitching"
Got Mawi nice and clean and more tame the following day
We have some land up in Mekaki (on the way to Deserts) so decided to check it out plus Belongas and maybe even Deserts. Swell was still pumping, the outer reef at "our" block was guesstimated at 30ft!!!
Pour block is high on the hill right on the main road, at the moment we are corn barrons but when the Suharto family open up the area on the beach we aim to become property Barron's!!!!!!
Belongas wasn't behaving in the tide (big highs and low lows full moon tides) so we took the hire cars for a jaunt to Banko Banko!!!! What a track, cars loved it, drivers hmmmmmm!!!!!!
Banks Banko, Desert Point best left handed in the world!!! Foshizzle it is fast barreling screaming long unreal to watch and watch and watch
I finally thought I had Sussex a section I could take on and was lucky to walk out ankle deep reef to the section without encountering a set, so good so far....little peak reared its head chest high coooool got it fast take off pumping top to bottom flick off no set coming Yeahaaa I HAVE CAUGHT A WAVE AT DESERTS......tide rushing out reef stands out of the water you surf under sea level....watching pumping waves and very good surfers get unreal waves and insanely long rides. I drifted up towards the point but decided I was not ready yet.....got a few more in the comfort level no barrels but still fast steep speed runs. I reckon you need a couple of days to work it out and being the oldest guy in the water by at least 20years!!!! I decided cowardice was the better option this time
Return to Bali, beachies massive with very little shape, the odd one fun the rest not. Airport Reef was really good till the wind made it a looooong really choppy chattery ride with very little ability to turn the board with out being bumped off.

all in all great trip, not many photos of us surfing but will get some up soon

LOMBOK PHOTOS


Mekaki Middle Reef, lazy 30ft face estimate!! My local
Mekaki, my share of the "investment" Corn Baron....Mate calls it our Bon Jovi investment.....we are living on a prayer

Mawi 10ft Set rolling around the corner

Mawi Steamroller
Mawi looking very nice......this one had just cleared the lineup!!!


Are Guling LARGE and unruly but looks doable in this photo....if you had massive hairy aggots and the paddling ability of a dolphin on meth!!!
MASSIVE Are Guling - the left and the right nearly meeting up across a very very deep channel

1st day chest to head high, right was very good, left was very nice


About as good as it gets...that's me in the white rashie paddling back out around to the back again. (6 blokes in the water!!!)
