Yesterday the surf was massive with a big long period South swell - some of the points and bombies were very large. I chickened out yesterday in the end and did not go out. I think the big swell and water movement yesterday has reshaped the banks into something much better at Long reef because the surf was really good today.

There almost no wind and there was a smoke haze in the air from controlled burning in the blue mountains. Nice and sunny. Without the cool wind I was too warm in my steamer today. Surf was glassy, 3-4 foot waves, bigger on sets. There seemed to be some nice peaks along the beach and the waves were really good. Caught some of the best waves I've had in quite a while. Makes me think I'm starting to recover some decent surf fitness and skill...

A really fun surf.
