Yesterday afternoon was one of the most beautiful afternoons I’ve experienced in Manly. I’m not sure if it was the 4foot+ of clean swell, the golden afternoon sunshine, the full-moon rising in the purple twilight or the fact that it was in such contrast to the grey, wet morning. Either way, it was a special time to be out in the water or hanging on the beach.
Today’s email is a mix of yesterday afternoon’s session as well as a couple from this morning. Once the wind settled down yesterday afternoon the waves turned into pure gold. Winki and Bower were lining up pretty well for a South swell and even Deadman’s had a couple on offer for the experts. This morning there’s still plenty of juice left in the swell and the wind’s dead offshore. Good day for a mystery stomach bug.
See you in the water!
PS. Don’t forget the World Surfing Reserve Dedication tomorrow at 11am at Manly Beach (oposite the Steyne Hotel). Kelly Slater & The Duke’s Original Sugar Pine plank will be attendance and so should you!
