This weekend’s wave wrap comes from the South Coast. Instead of heading to the pub after work on Friday, we were heading South for our Girls’ surf-weekend. We’ve rented a little house with amazing views. The house albeit a bit dodgy was on the water’s edge. We could hear the waves breaking from our bunk beds.
Saturday morning, we woke up to a rainy day and small waves. A bit disappointed that it was small, the awesome banks made up for it. Even if it was 2ft max on the sets, we all got a decent surf in in the morning. By the time we got out of the water the rainy day has turned into a bright sunny one.
We spent the day bumming around in our pretty little beach shack just relaxing talking girl stuff and eating lots. We went for another surf late in the day. Once more it was small but the perfect banks made up for it and we all had a fun surf. The water was stunning!! And best of all, no people around apart from a few locals. So nice to escape the hustle and bustle of the city beaches.
Sunday morning, the sporty ones amongst us (not me) went for a run for an early surf check. I preferred to sleep in in my comfy bunk bed. Whilst it was good to get a bit of a sleep in (till 8), the wind was up early too, making a mess of the already small surf. The protected corner a short drive away from our residence was smooth and glassy until a bit later but the high tide swallowed the already small waves. I gave it a miss but some of the girls had a ball nevertheless when they went for a paddle.
We were back in Bondi late avo. It feels like arriving on a different planet – from no people town just 3 hours South to crazy busy Bondi. And summer has not even started yet. I know where I’m going to spend my summer weekends… trying to get out of Bondi.
But there is still hope, the Rugby Worldcup – AUS vs NZ is on tonight (even as a non Rugby follower, I figured that part out). Almost everyone will be watching which makes for an empty line up in the surf this afternoon. Whoop whoop.
It looks like there is a bit of South swell coming in tomorrow – fingers crossed. As much as it’s fun to play around in 1-2ft, I’m very much looking forward to some real waves coming through hopefully soon.
Thanks again to the chickies for such a lovely weekend, had a ball without any balls around…
