Was actually very chilly enjoyable fun this arvo..Considered getting straight out after getting in, but stayed and ended up just myself and one other exchanging waves..

They've taken the Cott. beach cam off the SLSWA site so you can't do a quick surf check before doing the arduous drive !!
Bastards !!!

From 7-8 there was a few crew but manageable and decent pulse, round 8 or so it dropped a bit in size and a few more humans paddled out at the same time... so it felt like the crowds doubled and the waves halved as well
Initial calculations ( per bank)
5 x humans x 10 waves every 10 minutes = 2 waves per human every ten minutes with a factor of 30% missed equals 1.4 waves per human every ten minutes = 1.4x 6 lots of ten minutes= 8.4 waves per human per hour......


Post 8 am

10x humans x5 waves every ten minutes=.5 of a wave per human every ten minutes 30% missed .35 of a wave per human every ten minutes= 3.5 waves or something per hour....

In laymans terms this means Humans plus waves in Perth equals many sheep

Had a few fun waves at local metro beach on Sunday, couldn't be assed paddling against the current so just walked up and drifted down twice - worked a treat ha ha

Managed a couple of gems on back and forehand, light offshore without too many out - winning.

Great day for it! Trigg with some OK banks and good waves now and then around 2nd car park - crowd not as bad as you would expect... Mettams very clean with both lefts and rights working, with the longboard crew having some fun. Even saw a booger deep on the rights getting some nice action before bailing in front of exposed reef.

Report is road trip North was worth the effort. Going off was the claim!

Lucky buggers... I just got to watch the metro breaks for an hour...
