Ms. Understood (HMB Jetty)

My job has been very demanding lately, and I had to work much of the weekend. When I got home late this afternoon after spending hours in a windowless room on a sunny Sunday, Scott said, "I know you've been stressed lately, so why don't we head to the beach so you can surf, and I'll go for a walk?" Ah, he does get me.
There was a strong sideshore breeze at the Jetty, the waves were only waist-high+ and the tide was low, but I felt much better as soon as the first drops of seawater splashed my face. A left was holding up a short shoulder and I was able to link it into a reform a couple of times to the inside, plus I caught a bunch of other short ones with the peak all to myself. Thanks, I needed that!
Surfline: WNW to NW wind and groundswell mix combined with some modest SSW groundswell today. Good breaks pulled in chest-head high+ surf while standout exposures produced 2-3'+ overhead sets. Buoy 46012: (Wave) SWELL: 7.5 ft at 12.1 s WNW 27 / WIND WAVE: 4.3 ft at 5.3 s NW / WVHT: 8.9 ft / APD: 7.4 s / MWD: 298° (Met) WSPD: 17 kts / GST: 19 kts / WVHT: 8.9 ft / DPD: 12.0 s / WDIR: 330° / ATMP: 52.0° F / WTMP: 53.4° F. Tide: 1.5' rising to 2'.


  1. Onyer Scott! (That's 'Strine (Aussie slang) for 'you're a good bloke')

  2. Yeah, he is a good bloke! I think I'll keep him :)
