Chatter

Everybody's talking 'bout waves. When they coming? How big? What's the wind going to be like? Where's going to be good?  So much chatter on the beach and on the social channels.

Pleasantville

Neighbourhood

Back in the neighbourhood this morning and there's a fun little East swell on the run. School's well and truely back and the local grommets have settled into their daily dawn feeding frenzy.

Well, what do you know, there's waves! It's a little lumpy, a touch bumpy but combined with the right slice of sand there's some punchy little wedges to be sampled.  With the first day back at

All On!

Today is one of those days with everything.  If you were up at dawn you would have seen one of the most remarkable sunrises we've seen in a long time; a full sky of vivid pink, orange and blues.

Sift

The Swell's hanging in there, the wind's on the wane, the sun is blasting us once again but the swell's still south and straight.  A night of less wind has taken the rugged rawness out of the swell and

RAW

Waves are up and the wind is howling!  We're in our second straight day of non-stop gusty Southerlies and there's a raw South swell marching up the coast, mostly straight past us in Manly.
