There was the promise of a huge southerly Saturday, so I met the lads at our local windsurf shop, WindSurfnSnow around 10:00. Waited, waited, played on the SUPing rowing machine and waited some more. Even though the waves failed to appear the wind looked to be building. Unfortunately I was chronically underpowered on just a 5.0. Others got going with 5.7 and big waveboards. Few little ramps appeared and some small waves on the superlow tide. A couple of dolphins were spotted which is a good thing as they chase the sharks away. Makaha off Longreef point is a little spooky. Anyway we lasted about 2 hours in total. Packed up the gear and trudged back up the headland in the mud and rain. Finished the day back in Manly over coffee and pear and apple bread. Needless to say when you get 3 lads together there tends to be a bit of banter which makes the day that much better. Hopefully tomorrow....
