Arrived at the Long Reef carpark this morning in the near pitch dark still wearing pajamas. It was a pleasant surprise getting out the van that the temperature in Sydney has raised a few notches on the dial to a balmy 17c. Snapped a quick shot – that came out a lot lighter than expected – of the view.
The wind in the carpark was a little deceiving behind the bushes. After I’d pumped up the 9 and headed down with surfboard, only to have it blow away in the 30knot gust that came through with a rain squall I decided to swap to the Twintip.
The conditions today were not bad. There was plentiful wind that was quite on shore, surf was between 2ft and 6ft and very messy. Got taken out by one monster dumper and got a good working.
Good see Sonia and a few other die hards turned up early too.
