A SIGHT FOR SORE EYES | GOLD COAST SIX-MONTH FLAT SPELL BREAKS IN STYLE

Every day you check the long-range charts watching for a glimmer of hope. Stay positive. Weeks pass, months even. You know you've got a long way to go. Then all of a sudden, you stop looking and get on with life. But you’re a surfer - Hooked! It’s in your blood. Once you start, you can’t stop. So you jump on a plane for a quick fix. Waves – what a novel concept! And then finally, synoptic charts change. Swells begin to show. People start surfing again. You see familiar faces in the carparks. The brotherhood of a swell.

There are waves again… and after six stinking months, it’s a sight for sore eyes.

Welcome to issue 38. There’s good reason to click here.
