G’day world, like the sweet smelling fragrance of a fresh taxi is the sensory pleasurable Weekly Wash, keeping you informed of all the surf happenings locally and what's been happening on the pro tour.
Another week of weirdness, which may have been caused by a possible trick from some irritated kid trick or treating, as the waves decided to be as flippant and confused as your tongue the first time it was introduced to sherbet.
It’s seriously the most rewarding surf you will have this year.- Kurt Nyholm
For the majority of the working week it was pretty forgettable, until the weekend, when the swell jumped and action started being dealt out to every wave drawn location.
The timing was perfect, as the new rise in the seas also settled the tweaking nerves of surfers who were about to go troppo due the “blah” waves of late.
Sunday morning was such a treat. The waves were up and the sun bore down upon us like a kid with a magnifying glass aimed at an ants nest.
We also enjoyed the warming water, which allowed us to slowly shed our winter steamer wetsuits and replace them with the lovable spring suits.
Peter "Chewy" McKeown was one who was frothing to try out his new birthday present at the Bombie in the afternoon, when the winds swung north-east and waves punished the reef.
Chewy, who had received a magical Kirk Bierke gun from his mates to mark his half century, was so delighted, he sang as he stroked into each wave with a happiness that spread through the line up and gave everyone a cheerful reminder of how good surfing is.
This Saturday at Mollymook beach from 9am there will be a disabled surfers event. Any surfers out there willing to help out a fellow surfer who needs help, please come down to the south end of the beach and lend a hand. It’s seriously the most rewarding surf you will have this year. Afterwards you can share the stoke over a BBQ, hope to see you there.
Ulladulla Boardriders held their monthly event on Sunday at Dolphin point, which proved to be the perfect setting for our final competition over the year.
It was an event to go down to the wire.
Some insane surfing was broadcast to the crowd from the likes of Zane Stedman, Brendan Barton and Sophia Fulton.
For the full results check this very paper and remember the annual presentation is on November 25 at the Ulladulla Ex Servicemen's Club.
So much has happened on the pro circuit this week. We saw WSL competitor Kanoai Igarashi take out the six star QS in Brazil and then we jump over to Hawaii where Mason Ho took down the HIC Sunset comp in 8ft beasts. Finally, on the ladies side, Silvan Lima won the 6000QS at Cronulla, very busy weekend for the tour.
