Date: - Tuesday July 6, 2010.
Swell size and direction: - 8-12ft SW.
State: - Tasmania.

As soon as we woke on Tuesday morning July 6 we could hear the swell pounding in on Cremorne beach. There was a mood of calm anticipation amongst our crew though, so we casually headed down to Shippies.

Drama was never far away, first the Hollmer's ski wouldn't start and then after a good half hour delay whilst they tinkered with it, they eventually got it going. Then Mike Brennan and Marti P launched their ski, but it refused to start, so we had to go and pick them up from another boat ramp.

There were huge lines coming into the bay, but we knew the swell had already peaked overnight, so we were effectively chasing the tail end of the swell. Tyler's first waves were all bombs in the 15 foot range for sure, however he tweaked his ankle pretty bad on one of them, so he couldn't surf for the rest of the day.

Marti P continued his fine paddle performances of late, but he snapped his fav board, so had to pull the backup dog out. Danny Griffiths and Brook Phillips were dominating the line up with a few solid barrels and beat downs each. Brook was forced right into the impact zone trying to pick up Dan, when he reached out to grab him he pulled the lanyard off rendering the start button and the ski dead. He was wearing rubber gloves, so he found it pretty hard to get back on but after a few nervous moments and some egging on from the boat luckily they got out of there before any waves cleaned them up.
