Gee these surf reports are arriving late nowadays
eh. Today’s surf report comes from peaceful Avalon where waves were
around waist to chest high this morning – and the odd set larger.
The overnight-wind generated swell didn’t have a great deal of grunt,
but it was clean and playful in the south end. The rest of the week
looks pretty dismal with small swell + east wind curse…so this
morning was it for a few days…
2 time world champion and surfings 1st million dollar
man, big Tommy Carroll came along for a few off
the reef. TC who doesn’t blink an eye at 12 foot pipe has still
got his powerful old skool style even in today’s small Avalon surf.
Surfing on a variety of boards resembling wafer crackers ranging
from 5’5″s to 5’11″s – TC still cranks the heat out on a wally left.
One more thing, the Aquabumps gallery opened last
night. A permanent gallery showcasing the best of the bumps shots
can now be seen at 98 Brighton Boulevard, North Bondi. Large
mob checked out the first reveal last night. Big fat
