It's here! We've been waiting all weekend for the epic swell to arrive and it finally has! Unfortunately it failed to produce anything spectacular. Around here anyway. I'm sure we'll hear of tales of epic point break sessions going down somewhere north or south. If only we had booked that flight to Kirra, where Bondeye Candy's Musso spent the weekend filming. At least we will get a little taste of the good stuff from the trip.
While we have had fun waves around all week there was a definite buzz over the weekend. Saturday afternoon at Tama was like a war zone with 50 surfers battling for position in the line up, jostling shoulder to shoulder with boogers, clubbies and swimmers. A special mention must go to the local boys in blue. The Lifeguards at Tama were kept busy and made some amazing rescues mostly on surfers well in over their head getting caught out by the NE swell. A reminder to all that legropes do break and you should be confident enough and swim well enough to get yourself out of trouble before heading out in the more solid swell.
The weather looks kind of average this week with showers forecast, but wave wise there looks to be something to slide for the best part. Have a great week. Cheers
