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.

I like this. Looks like a fun wave and corduroy in the background really makes it inviting.

NZ was my guess.

So Stu you and the rest of the mob at Swellnet have cleverly placed yourselves to get the low down on the sweetest surf spots...............my deep state conspiracy theory is you bury all the good one's never to be shown so you can secretly surf uncrowded waves.

Hhmm.

Looks nice and idyllic , but bet it's a deceptive pic that looks like you can surf it all the way through, but possibly only really take off from where the guy is and then what does it do going towards those rocks?

Nah, ID, it's a reasonably long wave, and very good quality.

The old jetty/groyne looks like it'll trip you up, but it's quite far down the line.

That whole area is littered with good waves.

Not particularly a secret spot. Total class but very rare to get it without a significant crowd. Do a bit of hunting and you'll find it.

Agree, Zen.

That’s probably the reason I was so uninspired by the Chlorinated Bristol ripple generator .....I’d watched it after staring at that WOTD shot for a few minutes.

Akin to going from a mindlessly hectic sex session with Scarlett Johansenn to a dry five knuckle shuffle over a Big W catalogue.

Guessing it's just like Woolis (Cape Woolamai) when solid on outside bank, can get the odd good photo that makes it look good, but in reality you can't surf it unless have a ski, as too shifty and mostly closeouts plus too much water moving around could never stay in right area even if any kind of outside bank peeling.
