In the thick of it.

Thats right fellow surflings! As we ripped through June it seems that our beloved "surf-city" is truly living up to its name and perhaps we do have a "swell season" after all. With the south pacific bordering on El-Nino we have seen a steady northwest front/southwest high transition over the last few weeks and this seems set to continue for at least the next couple of weeks. This is great news for us as it virtually means 2 to 3 days of swell , on a weekly basis. Water temps are slowly falling but so far we are gradually starting feel a bit of a sting on the hands upon entry.

Looking forward into the future and it seems another Northwest blast is sneaking up on us so make the most of the dry weather and free up some glide time and what better way to wind up everyone on a sunday with some good old fashioned rumour mill....

Rumour Mill:     ...which local surf-ski fitness freak was out catching 6ft waves in the dark, 7:00am on thursday morning with his mate off the back-bar... both on surf-ski's ( what the ), apparently they dont like turning very much!!  ................. Who won the 60cm pro last saturday?..... Who called Snappers thursday morning 6ft meaning the guy who surfed the glen by himself  the night before at 10-12ft?....more strange the local musician surfer that called snaps 2ft that same morning and the night before 4ft .. remember its not the size of the wand but the magic within .and last but not least.... after claiming their keen-ness the day before, who were the group of grommets absolutely nowhere to be seen wednesday evening when the swell got "real"....

Peace Frothers.
