Call me chicken**** but I reckon James, Nick and Fernando were crazy stupid going out today at Sawtell Beach. Probably the only place sailable today for over 100km of coast due to the huge swells, they still took on a fair bit of risk, anyway, I haven't seen Sawtell with a decent swell and I think its got potential if something could be done with that sweep. PS Flat Top Woolgoolga was out of control.

Serious Nuggets gettin round coffs lately.
Refreshing to worry more about what's above the surface than under it

Hats off to you blokes, but we fell into the chicken**** category...the 6 knot of sweep through that channel out to sea didn't help! Might have joined you had we hung around a bit longer...this is the ocean from Woolgoolga lookout south to Flat Top yesterday.
