Coup d'état Circuit Breaker

Words by Ben Horvath

Apparently something major went down in Canberra on Tuesday August 21. I missed it.

Too busy outdoors enjoying the sunshine, all day offshore winds and 4 to 6ft south groundswell.

You see, it sure has been a while since we have had quality waves, at least a month on the entire East Coast in fact!

Tuesday August 21 now otherwise known as the coup d'état circuit breaker, the day the East Coast fired, ending the flat spell whilst the crew in Canberra went to war amongst themselves.
