It's school holidays, and despite a harsh, cold wind there were plenty of groms out at Lighthouse making the most of it. Once again the waves weren't great, but there was the occasional good one.

It wasn't great, but it wasn't bad at Lighthouse this morning. It was somewhere in between. There were plenty of ordinary waves coming through, but every so often a gem popped up. Some of the schools have started holidays, so there were plenty of contenders by 9am.

The conditions were perfect this morning, but the waves are tiny.
It was the Pooge and Peck show at lighthouse on their paddle boards.
After watching them for a little while I decided that it wasn't right for the wave stabbers to have all the waves and waxed up my 9'4.
I'm glad I did. Although it was small, there were some fun little waves peeling through.
There's meant to be some nasty wind on the way so grab a big board and get out there if you can.
I don't get to the beach for sunrise anywhere near enough. I managed to drag myself out of bed early on the weekend and like always, wondered why I don't do it every day. The light show is amazing, but it's more than that. If you haven't watched the sun rise for a while, do yourself a favour and set the alarm. It really is the best part of the day.
It's pretty grey out there today. It doesn't make surfing too inviting, but those who made the effort ended up with some fun and fairly uncrowded waves. There is a stack of whales passing by at the moment. They are just a little for out for a decent shot from shore. If you have a chance it is well worth jumping on a boat and heading out for a proper look. Apparently the rare all white humpback is due to pass by Port today so keep an eye out.
At first glance it seemed like there was nothing happening at Towns this morning. I was about to can it and head to work early when I spotted a single surfer paddle out. He picked up a new board yesterday, so he was always going out this morning. There were pretty big gaps between the sets, but when they came they were actually quite good. I watched him for about 10 minutes before I decided there were more than enough waves for two, and waxed up my log.
