Wave Rave: Cooler weather and swell pulse
WE HAVE had the classic autumn weather in the shire for the past week with more cooler weather to come as well as a pulse in the swell from the south.
The whales are out there and great to see from the Lighthouse as always.
The water temp in the surf is still warm and crystal clear to make it even better to go surfing.
It was an amazing surfing event in Bali at Keramas last week with the Aussies' Stephanie Gilmore ripping into First Place over Sally Fitsgibbons and Japan's Kanoa Igarashi winning over Jeremy Flores from Reunion Island in some awesome waves.
As of press time we have seen the start of the Men's CT #4 on at Margaret River Pro in Western Australia with a new swell inbound at Margret River anytime now.
Locally we had the New Brighton Board Riders held its third contest for the year during May.
Conditions were again super fun with clean, offshore winds and a nice 2-3ft swell. It was a great turn out of all age groups from under 10's to Masters.
