Looked good on cams but couldn't get away - trying to work out if tomorrow may be on for surf coast given wsw swell forecast & storm system - will there be a stormie tommorrow ? forecasts are a bit all over the shop - some calling too small to bother - coastalwatch calling it bigger. Two bobs worth welcome.
Hey Derwent yeah I surfed Saturday morning with my old man and one of his mates (who also rides a lid). Surfed Fairhaven which usually sucks but it was really fun and hollow with some nice peaks coming through. Not bad size too, with some good 3ft sets rolling in.
Too bad about the crowds. About 50% of the crew out there were full-blown kooks and were getting in everyone's (people that could actually ride a wave) road/making things very dangerous. I copped a full mal to the head and got run over twice by the same guy. I'm fairly cruisy but was getting so over it at that point so ended up tuning him in, was getting beyond a joke. An old local also ripped the absolute shreds out of him aswell for getting in his way and sent him into the beach. Kinda funny. Can't wait for winter again.
Did you end up checking this morning? I got up at 6am before work and had a look. Was about half a foot here round Juc and Bells area. Pretty dismal.
On the plus side looks like the surf coast mornings should be fun from tomorrow onwards for the next few days.
Edit: Swell still tiny. Looks like that storm should start bringing some size as the day goes on tomorrow (Monday).
