#Empty. Lots of waves no takers though. Haven't seen a surfer in my travels this morning. Maybe the southern corner of Manly. 6foot plus southerly swell. Spring what Spring

Searching for surf can be like banging your head against a brick wall sometimes. This trip to a remote island I was certain I'd been left with a Toyota Sigma after being sold what was supposed to be a Landrover. I drove around fruitlessly looking for the golden nugget and all I got was bone dry reefbreaks and ten dollar cabbages. I should have known that bodyboarder was selling me a scam. But then it all changed just like that, a smile led to a conversation, which led to an invitation, which led to the key being unlocked to Pandora's chest. The rest is history. Waves of a lifetime and this doesn't do it any justice at all.
