Had to go search for waves a bit today, well, when I say search, we hung a Melbourne hook to the left off the Great Ocean Road, drove about 5ks to the coast and ended up at a beach called Johanna's. I could see only three people in the water for about 4kms up and down the beach with multiple bowly peaks peeling off left and right. The charts said 1-2ft but this was good chest with occasional bigger sets. Paddled out on a peak right in front of a little bluff, reckon the peak was debris from the last time the cliff fell in there, lovely bowly take off where the swell was warping round the bank and then a 80-100m right hand wall to the inside.

Would say is the best surf I have had over here so far, really fun wave, only me and one other guy from Melbourne surfing it, 100 yards away was another almost identical peak with two guy on it.

Surfed for about 90 mins until the tide dropped a bit, the wave stopped working so nicely and the swell finally dropped off to barely waist high. Got back to the car and found the missus had slept through the whole thing!

Maloolaba here we come tmrw, hoping the Decorator and Shack are lining up some friendly spots for me :)

I was gonna say that if you check the times of most of my posts, they happen when it is dark over here, there has been so much driving and surfing and eating and traipsing round towns and cities that it is a wonder I have time for anything online but I have my laptop and my iPhone so there is really no excuse for me not to torment you at every opportunity, I know if the tables were reversed I would get the same generosity :) and lets face it, I'll be coming back tot he Deen at the arse end of a shit year for surf with no holidays left until I get my next annual allocation which doesn't happen until oooh Sept 1st :)

Feeling some stokeage after tonights session as it was rubbish at the start then gradually got much better as the tide dropped. I didn't actually get many good ones but it was a hell of a lot better than expected. @ Perranporth.

Just remembered, didn't paddle into a couple as I was a bit chicken!!!

Probably too late roberdy but see if you can get up the coast a few more clicks to Gibbs Steps where you can surf in the shadow of the 9-12 Apostles.Looked great when I was there last.

Sorry to have missed you Roberdy. Looks like you got some good waves. Heard you got a few at "doggers" with Decorator (post witty comment here).I was shattered from a week of solid surfing and my ladyfriend was just back from India so....

A pretty big swell hit that same spot last sunday. Decorator managed a few until he got washed in, but I was just surviving :shock:

Not a bad old place eh? :wink:

Shack, no worries it as kinda wee surf anyway! I got a bit skunked on the east coast really although the flatness made for some epic diving the next day :)

Got in the water this morning, weirdly the first dawny I have done this year :shock: was about chest high+ on sets and pretty slack, seems weird as my perception of the waves here has changed significantly and I seem to have improved quite a bit while I was away too, pop up is smoother, wave reading seems better. Just need to re-acclimatise to the north east and then head for the top coast for some real juice (if we ever get any decent swell!).

I'll see you next time we are out mate, hoepfully next year!

Offshore winds were a bit too strong today and the waves pretty slack. Got better later on when the wind died down a tad with clean waist high peelers. Waves still weak but with the sun out and the water warm who can complain.

Went to Fistral tonight with Newtangled on a flying visit. Super smooooth decent size waves with offshores (a little strong) and so easy. Fun with a capital F. I laughed so much, it was utterly stoketastic!

Furthest North, just me and one other chap for a good hour or so.

Must have been swell all along the coast though or maybe not?

He posted a pic from Northy looking South, looked like it was on the drop.

I think he actually referred to the surf as 'pumping', which was pretty apt!

Would have been good to watch the skinny bugger surf.
