Does anyone else think that the backwash at Perth locals has had more heft this year?

Not sure about heft, but consistency, certainly.

A couple of weekends ago in the deep south. Margarets doesn't have the monopoly on firing waves south of Perth

I grew up surfing this coast and have seen a few submarines over the years. Once from the lookout at this spot after a couple of hours in the water... I've still got all my fingers and toes thankfully...

Thoughts for today:
1. The closeouts at Scabs today had me thinking more of my spine health than slotting into a cavern
2. There is a big difference between wave size at Scarborough and Cottesloe
3. My wetsuit is starting to smell. It hasn't been getting completely dry between sessions for the past few weeks. At first I though that there must have been some drying out seaweed around, but no, it's me.
4. How did we cope with long hair before the top-knot became a thing?
5. Why do some hipsters insist on not wearing a legrope. Are they allergic to nylon and Velcro, or philosophically opposed to respecting others.
6. When will I stop being a kook. It's been a while now.

Pretty straight with backwash. There were a few random waves holding up at sparrows today but that was mostly due to a broken up swell. It was nice and glassy though.

The Hipster legrope thing is painful

First over 4hr surf session in Oz for the year, damn good fun but I could have caught as many waves in 90 minutes on other days lol. Gonna havta call, best August in years though for good wind/swell even though we're only on the 9th day. Usually nonstop devil winds

Worst winter I can remember. Zero storms, zero sand, straight banks, backwash, small swell. And winter is over already.

GPA cams were a bit deceptive - was even deceptive standing on the shore. At scabs strong northerly current, 1 in 3 shoulders were makeable and of those 1 in 2 were pretty fun rights. Sun was out though and water is clear. Looked better than it was though.

Well I am staying away from the temptation of the surf for a while longer - I'm only 9 weeks after a big shoulder recon, so I still have another 4 weeks away before I can start some gentle swimming... then prob a good few weeks before I can do a push-up (Ha!). I am setting myself a target of December.. and get back into it with some small Summer grovellers and hopefully progress as the conditions improve in March/April. Bali is already booked for next July

After 31/2 months out of the water (torture) got back in late last week and the boys were saying the same......sort of reassuring in a dark way still commiserations to all.

Friday was really good, I was telling all I couldn't even stand up being out for so long and being really old yada yada working the sympathy angle then after I had two really good waves got told to fu(k off......

Arms were shot by then and really couldn't get up, its a long road back.

Where were you Mick?

Good luck on your recovery GPA a few guys I know have had shoulders done and all have had good recovery's, seems the surgery has improved some what, note all have done exactly what the physios have said nothing more.

No, while pretty bad, there have been glorious sunny, offshore, barrelly waves on occasion. I reckon last year was worse. Or was it the year before?... A worrying trend, that's for sure.

Anyway, had an hour to myself at an oft-crowded break today. It was pretty ugly and I was consciously under-gunned, but I made fun of it till the wind got extreme.

Just been surfing locally since I got back m8. Swell hasn't been massive but like I said the swell/wind (wind mainly) has been magic for this time of year. Normally get non stop devil winds in August.


Was wondering what happened to you Razz, gratz on the new job m8.

Oh Razz, I was just thinking today in the water that the best way to maximise the stoke of a good surf is to tell someone who couldn't make it out for a wave.
It was good. Very good. Lucky I was in the water, cause my board was on fire.

Izzat right? It was awesome at my local today too, cause the dolphins appeared and smiled as they beckoned me onto wave of the day.
