The NSW South Coast
The Bogey Hole pictured above, Collis rights below. It was only 4ft in the morning , but by dark there was thumping 8 foot sets pouring onto the coastline.
La La Bay
Another South Coast Low gave us a Bay Swell, so with a predicted North wind a call was made to check Callala Bay the next morning
Callala Bay Lefts
Its been over 9 Years since I have surfed Callala , so even though it was not a large swell pouring in, this was chance to ride our surf mat’s out there, and was joined by Brian Manahan and Justin Spittle for the early paddle out.
As always we seem to get a Bay Swell right smack in the middle of school holidays, so there was already a few kids in the water when we paddled out in the dark. Brian rode his kneeboard and this was our first time surfing mats out on the famed lefthander, so with a thick early morning crew already out we soon settled into a pecking of scraping around on the inside for the little runners , letting the bigger sets go to the guys riding boards.
After a hour or so of sliding around on small waves , it was time to move onto another location with some more grunt, as I had a need for some speed, and need to surf a rail and some fins!
PRETTY IN PINK
Brian scored this 1980’s fibreglass bodyboard off EBay recently
take note of the leash plug on the bottom of the board

I FEEL THE NEED FOR SOME SPEED

a good 6 foot plus
By the time I walked out to there, there was nobody in the water , but a dozen or so on the beach, so with a low tide and this size swell running , there is plenty of wash thru’s happening . I took the chance to jump off the back of point into a couple of larger runners , and with that I was soon joined by a couple surfers and within a hour and the incoming tide there was a least 20 surfers
A few Keg’s on the inside
Bumped into Marcus on the way out, and another 20 guys walking in as well!
