Hey Longy...can't see it from here! Forecasts are for clean but tiny for the next few days. Ripcurl Pro bleachers are being erected, and giant pictures of Mick Fanning. The promotional shot of Fanning is cropped in such a way that out-of-context and to the eyes of a non-surfer, a viewer would have to say "WTF is THAT!?" LOL

Saturday 20th -The best its been for some time...clean offshore, nice straight swell, low tide nice and early. Surfed a secret spot, not pictured. Fast, hollow and shared by just six surfers...all as it should be on my birthday!The next day saw the onshore kick back in, but Wednesday is shaping up again.

Just beautiful Josh...beautiful

..Do not try...do..

Yes that was a classic morning...though give it another couple of feet for a bit of intimidation factor.

Today (Thursday 25th) has been memorable too...pics soon.

Another secret location slightly off the beaten track...this one holds up to fifteen ft and easily rivals the better-known spots not far away. Scored this a week ago before it all turned to slop just in time for the girls contest at Bells. Looking at prospects "Down-South" over the long weekend, and a telephoto lens still on the shopping list!

Looks good Josh... How was the south mission? Much going on down there?

Hey Rogg...actually only got as far as Lorne and had second point alone on Sunday at dusk.

Love the lil' dredge and rock bunny-hops. Fun when all the crew are at the slab and totally oblivious. Lived there 3 yrs so it feels comfy.

Nice photos Longy, just registered on this site.

Noticed Longy's Rank: Grand Master Navigator with Oakleaves Swords and Diamonds, not bad considering he does this on submarines! (see his Tracks forum avatar). Good stuff.

... "time waits for no-one" ... though age is meaningless when you're in the barrel.

A very mixed couple of weeks surf-wise, as the Bells footage attested...Easterly swell for a while restricted options, but Sunday 11th saw a good size SW swell. I sought some solitude and the chance to try out my new camera. This spot is a tricky one which you definately don't know. Lonely and steadily getting colder. 4-3 steamers out soon!

Good to see some out of the way stuff Josh - sick of looking at shitty Bells
