Yesterday, Maroubra Beach, NSW. Started out looking like 2 foot at the south end, ended up easily 4 foot+ but with intensity and strong push. north end was a couple of foot bigger. The amount of people out there was insane. https://www.facebook.com/rbattam/videos/10216272240673030/

Today was mostly 3, 4, and 5 foot Close-Outs. couple of short rides, but the rest was wipe-outs and paddling and just survival for me lol. Better than doing nothing, but I do miss some nicely sloped waves.

Today was at Maroubra, tomorrow will be at Wanda beach. I've also for 2nd week in a row … Continue reading Blue Bottle Raid
Surfing today, I got a blue bottle tail stuck on my hand and palm when paddling, it wasn't that bad to be honest, I don't remember them having such a weak sting. Anyway I got some good waves today and realised - I did the best i could. It may be time to find a … Continue reading Blue Bottle
