Got out yesterday on North Chesterman. Nice waist high waves. You will see Wendy my wife at the end and Jasper our little yellow lab. About midway through I pick up a tiny wave but the next wave behind me looked great. Wave selection becomes such an important part of the beach break. Also towards the end I stuff the nose of the Speeed on a drop. I can't remember when I last pearled with this board. I was beginning to think it was immune. Temperature was around 0 deg C. My hands got a bit cold with only 1.5 mm gloves. Feet were fine with 3 mm Solite boots and socks. Music is by Grayson Gilmour our nephew and new dad in New Zealand. Very talent musician and composer.

Cheers

Rapid Creek.
Sou'westerlies - horrid conditions.
Plenty of wind swell but... geez. Spent more time in the drink than on the Style.
Got a few burgers and went in. The wind's easing, so I'll be back for more (punishment) tomorrow...

Good to hear - what's the wildlife situation up there at the moment?

Well, funny you should ask Nozz'! I found this bloke in a trap just down from Chez Mango yesterday arvo in Rapid Creek. Just up from my local - where I got waves this morning.
Not sure if the photo does any justice, but it's a Salty - you can see him smiling!

And plenty of these...

Some cracking storms...

And plenty of shady, quiet water-holes for some downtime to reflect on the shape of my next Search...

I decided not to paddle out
but I felt the fortress shake.... does that count?

Made the entire SUP world suspect, as I went to the big stage... in full Kook mode

I am making a vid of the entire experience. Hard to get it down to "postable size"

Magic stuff Tardy - you've captured it all in those couple of pics mate - family, out on the water, a smile and a wave at sunset - it's what it's all about (... and maybe a cold frosty or two afterwards eh...)

Absolutely classic photos - I don't know what's more impressive - massive, pumping Nazare or STC in the Kook hat AT massive, pumping Nazare!!!

Thanks Griz

Yes I wear a waist leash. Works great especially when the waves are a bit bigger.

Nice one Haydo. Was at same spot a bit later on the Acid. Bit too crowded due to the surf carnival.
