Sorry been focussed on other things for a few days so missed this stuff! Swiggy, that wave is at Salmon bay, left hand end, we were snorkelling there for about 2 hours, it was lovely, nice little lagoon with a bit of a wave breaking there, not really surfable but looked nice at times. Good area inside the reef with some bits about 15ft deep, got some good GoPro footage from it but have yet to edit it up due to head being up arse for two weeks pretty much now! Might try to do it while I am in Denmark this weekend as there will be times with feck all to do!
There was a bit of a bombie in the middle fo the bay that woudl break on bigger sets, was flat at Trigg that morning but Rotto was overhead I reckon!

swiggy wrote:Yeah, it gets a lot of swell out there. I never surfed salmon bay, but the west end of the island gets even more swell. Strickos is such a fun wave, if it looked like that at salmon it would have been overhead and cranking at strickos, its offshore in the same wind.. Did you go to that place? I never surfed the spots way out at the west end, cathedral rocks etc. because there was just too much swell, double overhead + closeouts.. I got some amazing waves on rottnest though, its an awesome place. I felt like sharkbait out there at times though, I was by myself too some mornings It was nice when a couple of people paddled out to join me, for some reason I felt totally safe then..
