The swell has come up and the waves are pumping. I hope everyone around this town got to sample some this morning. The beachies was amazing with 3-4ft a-frames rolling through with nearly not a soul out. With the swell coming up all weekend it will be looking the goods.
The Alley was too fat on the higher tide this morning but the bank is definatly there and should be pumping at the right tides. There are also a few sneaky banks around just up from the Alley which are worth a look with even certain world champs blowing the back out of some. Just had to keep an eye out for the dreaded, fat and blubbery blue jellyfish. They were everywhere and the horrible electric blue nasty ones at that!
Round three at the Burleigh Breaka pro produced some amazing surfing with 2-3ft pumping runners letting the boys get 4-5 turns per wave. It’s always good to see Occy surf live and even though he was eliminated today, watching him and his trademark backhand surfing always brings a smile to this kids face. There were some big names booted out today but over the next few days there should be some next level surfing going down up here.
I also managed a walk around the track on the point while I was up here. It is sooooo amaizng and if ever you around here and have some spare time please go for a walk on a sunny day. The creek mouth’s water is super clear and the beaches there are palm lines and very private. Well done again to mother nature and also the guys and girls that keep Burleigh beautiful.
