Description:

The swell was building, having dropped off after the BongofbillsPro.  The water was noticibly colder today but still fine in a 3/2.  I got worked by a wave after about 20 minutes and my back started blocking and twinging - otherwise I'd have stayed in longer.

The waves were big on the sets but happily were quite catchabale at the Point.  Had 4 long rides down past the beach and onto the next section (150m-200m+).... and did a rare thing for me.... stopped the session on a great wave - didn't do that usual kak of paddling back out for 'one last wave'....

Forecast sites showed it being 12ft - which made for nice waves at Point and some pretty hectic rides at Supers (not me ;-).  The next day showed the forecast of 21ft swell..... happy that I was about 900km inland by then.
