The wave of the day does it for me big time. Nice work Steen Barnes , Shaun Anderson and Swellnet.
In one photo you've encompassed everything nice about surfing. If I was a wanker I'd say that it was perfect except for the fact he is in a wetsuit. Which it is , it's perfect .....except for the fact he's in a wetsuit.

Thanks for the pep talk, Mattlock. I'm still a bit rattled by Bob Sacamano's "whitewater gate" caption the other day, and today I'm mildly hungover too.

Anyhoo, rugby is on the roster hence today's offering.

I wonder if rocketthehut would find something wrong with today's lineup if he rocked up.

It does look particularly inviting. That inshore gutter looks like it’d likely hold some nice fish too. Rocketthehut isn’t easily pleased though. probably too much head work for him to choose between going left or going right.

There's only one wave and it's already being ridden. What's the point?!

That beach sand looks a bit grainy and hard to walk on besides probably being hot enough to scold the feet. Or too cold to walk on….bah humbug!

Looks like Eden* to me.

Cheers to Swellnet for your efforts. Such great stories, clips and photos to keep us all stoked while things get a bit weird and Huey goes on his annual Spring break a bit early. Much appreciated.

Ill more often than not open my eyes during duck dives these days. I think it helps.

But after a couple of surfs in one day, my eyes are fucking cooooked. Could be the sun though.

I always fear the leggie's gunna break if letting go in this situation. Nic's wave looks 8ftish so odds of a separation would be significant. Mike or Nic are you out there?

The photogs nickname used to be 'binos'. Sight related.

He's a fan of a Coopers Stout and lemonade too. Too cryptic?

Figured "blind trust barrels" was about Christian Porter and the blind trust but binos and portagaf fits perfectly.

Well played.
