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.

Im not too sure about bluff and gnar but always thought they got similar winds to here. And mid north west has been terrible with devil winds. Maybe gero has had a few days at one spot i used to surf but i dont think gero likes west swells, im not too sure.
Mid north west has been NW, west or North almost every day since Easter.

Was in area all of May and most of June... First time so cannot compare. If crappy year and bad winds, then still better than most places I have been...

Gnaraloo and Red Bluff... Was planning week or so in Kalbarri, but car issue so stuck in Carnarvon for week, so only 2 nights in Kalbarri. Was start of school hols so could not stay longer due to caravan park being booked out, was pretty disappointed as really nice town, regardless of waves...
Great sunset from pub....

Indeed... supafreak great old school shot. Im guessing thats a north wind spot near gero? Didnt you used to live there?
If that's the spot im thinking....Once when i lived there the rivermouth opened up after rain and created a sick bank coinciding with swell and good winds.
Sharky dark water and heaps of fish though.

Awesome SF, would have loved to experienced that in the early days. I dont know when that area started getting surfed but i remember seeing nude hippies checking the surf there...would have been unreal living like that, catching fish and crays etc and riding horses and surfing.

Solid wave by Phil Goodrich in today WOTD. Knowing Phil like i do that would have been one of many. Very stylish surfer. Makes it look so easy.

Yeah i agree very clever.

Today's one is hard to tell where it is since the background land can either be joining the land on the left or the right of the beach in focus.
Great shot Craig.

Cheers Zen. Bit of cross-pollination going on too, as both Sydney Swans and the Wallabies got seriously spanked last night. Few sad people waking up this morning.

Agree 100%, and will add a nice line leading to the forthcoming turn. Isn’t it amazing that you can tell, even with the crop, where it is?
