Surf City Back With a Vengeance......

It seemed only about 3 weeks ago we were all having a cry about the lack of surf lately and then all of a sudden as the unpredictable Surf City does...... it all got turned on its head.
It all started a couple of days out from New Years day with a small goundswell from sub tropical low just shy of being a cyclone then before we knew it we got smashed by a blustery Northwester with that one particular afternoon producing the goods at a "mythical" rivermouth...

The above mentioned surf was rather thick crowd wise with numbers around the 25 mark but there were plenty of waves to be had and everyone left the water stoked and Mike Baker even had time to produce this little clip shot from his goPro.

Now if thats not enough to fuel your fire then last week Cyclone Ulu hovers about overhead sending down some delectible delights in the form of a super clean groundswell with the Thursday morning just about as good as waves get in the 4ft range there were even some tubes on offer...

So you could say its been a great start to the year and remember
...."you never know your luck in Surf City"

Happy New Year 2016

Welcome back everybody!! Was a great to start the year with some waves in good old surf city..
A little small but beggars cant be chosers and with more on the way.... why worry!!
Quite a promising start to the Cyclone season with that little sub-troppo low forming just shy of our sweet spot and with the MJO ( google is your friend ) soon to be lurking above our respected pacific heads things could get pretty special this season........ just saying.

Local longboarder Ben Winmill is currently in Noosa with his mate filming the Documentary "Way Back When" and sent a shot of him and his mate interviewing legendary shaper Peter Way a couple of days ago. Totally looking forward to this docco with a vague planned viewing intertwined with a boardriders club meet.

Now just to keep things super fruity for the New Year sit back and relax to this little Miki Dora clip.
