Good god… IT doesn’t come much better.

Well, excuse the heroics with my title today, but really, 28 degrees when you wake up, burning over 30 by midday, 26 degree water temp, small but perfect waves for all levels from beginner up and crystal clear water.. The only thing that is missing is 6 foot barrels and I think they are not too far off anyways.

The Alley this morning was super crowded with the usual suspects doing their usual thing but the beachies on the incoming tide were super, super, super fun!!! On the beachies and its 2ft and a-framing with an incoming tide. That means its only going to get better.  Its 1 o’clock now and I have been running around since 6 shooting, swimming, cafe-ing… so I’ll say it again, it simple doesn’t come much better than this!

oh, and if you feel like a beer on a day like this, head to what I think is the best view on the Gold Coast, serving amazing food and ice-cold drinks. Currumbin SLSC… ps.. look what I had! burrrp.
