Dedicated to good news ....
For at least the last 15 years I've not taken more than 3 weeks off at any one time.
Today is the first day of a 10 week break and I've got so much to do.
On top of this fact I just read Ben's Forecaster Notes.
"Stacks of swell ahead; windows of good winds to boot ".
I love autumn.
Awesome mate, go nuts
Just began a train journey back up the coast. What was going to be a chilled journey turned nightmare when the seat next to me was filled with a massive woman . More than filled really. Overflowing with the size of this woman.
The train guard checking our tickets realised my plight and returned after doing his rounds to politely and diplomatically suggest that there was a spare seat amongst the otherwise full train in the next carriage.
So stoked. Now it’s back to being a fun experience as opposed to a hellish test of endurance .
That bar car must be open by now.....
Well, that is good news.
For the unnamed woman.
Maybe she's commenting on an 'ironing and miscellaneous housework' blog at this very minute about how she dodged a bullet too.
And we're all lucky there's such good reception on the ol' train.
Junior Goof has arrived and may be checking out his first Rip Curl Pro this Easter.
Start em young!
Congrats GF, how stoked must you be! Never too early ;)
Thanks Craig, if by stoked you mean a sleep deprived zombie then hell yeah im super stoked ha ha
Stoked for you mate. Watching bells ? Bugger could be winning it in 2037.
That's great news Goofy! All the best mate.
Good luck with the sleep GF, it can be a form of torture. Worth it though.
Awesome GF...hard work from here on with way less time in the water. Thankfully the little ones are all worth the sacrifice. Some golden times ahead mate...enjoy!!
Congrats GF. The highs are real high but the lows can be real low. Go with the flow.
Congratulations to you and your missus GF awesome news.
No matter the ups and downs from here on you have entered a new life well travelled but never regretted a new realm of emotions only accessed through parenthood............there maybe less barrel time how ever.

You can't just assume one's surfing stance in 2019.
Congrats GF. A new chapter in your life, maybe a little less surfing in the short term but you’ll have a whole new appreciation for the sessions you do get. And what you miss is more than made up for by the little guy:
Looks like Jokowi has secured his second term, which is good for Indonesia and it's people and anyone going to Indonesia.

Congrats to the GF family and all the very best
Westofthelake must either be on single parent duty or ill or both.
It's common for upfront tradies paying off mortgage to take only a week off/yr.
tbb also never had more than 2 weeks off a year for about 15 years.
Now Ben daydreams waveoftheday dreamrides for Westofthelake's dreamboat.
Post only picture perfect Postcards please...
Autumn reminder!...Huey rewards those timing tide with wind & swell patterns.
tbb admits his dreamrun of waves came outta the blue...now gifting gems to all.

"Looks like Jokowi has secured his second term, which is good for Indonesia and it's people and anyone going to Indonesia."
What a relief!
The way politics has been heading I had real concerns for a possible prabowo president.
Good for indo, oz, and all...
Guys, this is a non political forum topic, can you please take your discussion elsewhere, thanks
Yeah nothing much more to say, but just wanted to continue the politics conversation.
I mean really dude????.....one comment from us both...we are not having a big political discussion, just acknowledging good news.
Right on, GF.
You'll cop a lot of advice, welcomed and otherwise, about the business of babies, but here's one thing I'll tell you: Their stance isn't concrete as kids. Two of mine still haven't decided if they're natural or goofy.
Onya Goof. Hearty congrats.
Watashi wa metabo oyagi desu.
As lostdoggy said, its 2019..
Ps cheers everyone ;-}
Maybe they’re bobyboarders Stu? (gulp)
How good is this?
"Maybe they’re bobyboarders Stu?"
No problem. Least their equipment wont take up as much room in the shed.
Congrats Goofy and Mrs Goofy, well done and enjoy! Our young ones were running round the 2003 RC Pro in horned beanies, haha! Entire family is natural, I wonder if it's genetic?
There's been generally shite banks down my way for months now, but today's clean E/NE swell just couldn't be denied and two sessions at the local bookended a fantastic day. Coupla mellow sessions in boardies warm waters, bit of Bunninglingus and a dig in the garden, now I'm swishing some microbrewery beer around in my mouth like it's fucking Grange Hermitage while the cockatoos get raucous in the tree across the driveway.
Good on ya.
I’m surfing the XXXXX XXXXX as it’s got a sneaky bank and it’s overlooked by the ridiculous crowds which have hit town. It was only a few days ago I was remarking how uncrowded this Easter felt.
Turns out every bastard was waiting for the second week.
A gorgeous time of year. Warm water with a nice bit of rain getting around. The wisteria is starting to go a bit yellow so you know what’s coming.
Installed a new sounder in the Sea Wok, fixed up a few dings in the boards and changed the wax jobs. Feel like a new man.
So how long is the mighty sea wok Blowin...14ft? with a what hp on the back?
3.55 metres with a 15hp.
It’s just fast enough to outrun Sea Shepherd.
It made the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs*
*Never go full nerd
Haha.....nice spaniard.......they will be heading north soon,nice and fat.
Good news? https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2019/apr/23/high-number-of-yo...
Dead YES/NO schoolkid voters need scores of no name candidates to vote for.
Come next week there won't be any Liberal candidates left running.(Good news!)https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2019/apr/22/liberal-mps-erase...
The fools have got form regarding this, TBB. Let's cast our minds back...
Good news! (It's been a while)
I had my best surf in ages today.
3 -5 ft, groomed, and relatively uncrowded.
Paddled out and scored wave of the day straight up. I remember it well. The rest were just a bonus.
All things considered I got my fair share.
Days like these are the gold we seek.
The cropped mobile pic doesn't do it justice. The sets were twice the size, but became more intermittent as the morning wore on..
Great stuff WOL. It was a bit smaller and windier here today after two great days around 6ft. I went out and grabbed a few fun ones before the tide ran out. A chill out day tomorrow might be the go!
Liverpool smashing Barcelona 4-0 at Anfield to make the Champions League final! Doesn't get much better than that! YNWA
Great stuff, BB. And c'mon Brighton vs Man City! We will beat Wolves.
The last time we won the league was the first time I went to the UK! Saw the last game of that season: Us vs Arsenal at Highbury. Great days.
Still the Champions League to look out for.
