Ever turned up to the best party ever just as the last few people leave the building?  That's the way I felt when I got back into Manly this morning at 10:30am.  Epic stories buzzed around the line-up like flys.   Stories of macking sets, impossible tubes and ridiculous closeouts.  I've been up in Cairns since an early Monday flight and despite the forecast I just couldn't change the call of the north.  Needless to say there weren't any waves up there.  I'm feeling a little empty. I know, i know, I missed it.  I'm glad you scored. Truly I am.  Luckily Barns was down the beach with lens in hand to capture a few moments of the best waves we had here for a long while.  Here's a few more highlights from Sunday to Tuesday.
