Around the Cyclonic Grounds.

I could go on and on about the last few days events but here is a quickfire spill...

Saturday saw the first signs of the Cyclone(s) swell with a 2ft pulse around midday followed up on sunday by a more solid 3ft which ran into monday morning before late in the morning an explosive pulse saw the swell kick to a solid 6ft with Bruce Wilson , Russell Bruce, Rich Barry, Jeremy Pooley and Keni just to name a few sliding down into some bombas with both Russ and Theo breaking their boards...."They dont call it Snappers for nothing".

The next morning saw a mediocre 2-4ft what seemed like leftover swell before a "re-boot"in swell saw it jack once again to a steamy glassy 4-5ft with Snappers basically as good as it gets and although the crowd was slim through the middle of the day with myself, Glen Richardson, Gavin Stones, Liam buttner, Jimmy mac and Marco all reaping the rewards, the crowd quickly swelled with Shawry and Ralph from Westport making a guest appearance with Shawry throwing himself out of some heaving lips on his longboard and sticking them much to the amazement of the crew.Action packed highlights included Take-San and Olin pilchers collision and Jimmy Mac's accidental drop-in on Keni leaving him fearing for his like ...hah... Paulo "Parcero" Devia even managed to snag a couple in the morning keeping it native with some solid gaffs

Later that afternoon it was rumoured 2 guys surfed an indo-esque like Cable Bay to themselves at a totally playful yet solid 3ft, (head high).
Then this morning came and a lucky few guys scored some amazing tubes and a mystery guy turned up and watched the boys getting brutal shacks before turning around and walking briskly back to the carpark with tail between his legs ,,,,, you know who you are but we dont !!
boys scoring this mornings goods including Marcus Roebuck, Paul Chop-Chop, Jeremy Pooley, Ross Burdon, Ben Robertson and Bruce Wilson .

Anyhow enjoy the photos and get ready for some more tropical nonsense in a week or so!!
