You'd have to be as keen as a grommet this morning to go hunting waves;  it's 20kts onshore and wild and woolly out in the water!  Local surfer turned performance coach Beau Mitchell was down on the beach running his groms squad through their paces in messy random conditions.  Whatever Beau's up to it's working with the groms posting some solid scores in very average and testing waves.  Ripping Grommets! The rest of the week is looking similar with a truckload of ESE swell but stormy messy conditions.  Keep an eye on the wind later in the week for an offshore change.

If you're hunting a new stick or just need some killer kicks for the winter, keep your money in your pocket 'til Friday. Chilli Surfboards, MacBeth Footwear and Lost Surfboards are having a huge Factory Sale kicking off this Friday.  Click through for details.
