Watch: Kirra just a couple of hours ago

Stu Nettle
Reels

Today's long range easterly groundswell ran a little earlier than predicted. James predicted a peak late-morning, but the largest waves seemed to come early morning, which was a bit of shame for Kirra and Snapper as an early morning high tide swallowed the swell.

By mid-morning, however, the tide dropped enough for Kirra to barrel and there was still enough size to make it interesting.

This clip features Mick Fanning, Parko, Griffin Colapinto, Seth Moniz, Occy, Dion Atkinson, and more.

there were skis but they were keeping fairly north away from the pack for the most part...they still managed to ruin a set wave I had waited a long time for

When I drove past, there were at least 3 skis out and old mate with the camera at the hut! See that sort of shit and you keep on driving.

glowing reports of great waves ridden by the local crew despite the video of shameless drop-ins and snaking. Very GC news crew!, I would love to see them put them to shame the same way they do they hoons acting dangerously on our streets.

Yep, nobody on it, too much sweep. Looks like Parko and a couple of others had the skis dropping them back off behind the rock after each ride. Their own private sesh just out of reach of the masses.

Word on the street is that the cnts are spreading their wings and alighting elsewhere for this next Hollywood swell. Please keep your cameras in your pants and be polite where you are visiting. Probs a waste of time asking but it’s worth a try.

Look at me! Look at me! Look at me!

Local grom never surfs without mouth gopro. Asked him if he ever leaves it and just enjoys the waves. Looked at me confused.

Yer it's a pretty nippy 21 deg in the water now but more so you got the wind chill too. I don't reckon it went over 19 deg today. Brrrrrr

That last wave…the drop into it and stance on the board was phenomenally balanced. Perfectly executed. Don’t know who it was, but absolute style master perfect wave man combo.
