The past week or so has seen epic conditions with some quality swell hitting our shores. Only problem is that there are no Banks. What should have been an epic winter for surfing has turned out to be the worst ... almost as bad as last year.
Last year we expected that it was going to be nasty, but this year there were signs that it was going to be on.
Westbrook has had some waves but you seriously need to have the croud thing sorted or dont even bother.
On the Spearfishing side the water is looking a little bit cleaner than the weekend, and with a little luck there will be a dive on the weekend when the swell drops.
Down a Jeffrey's the Billabong Pro is mid way but they are on hold waiting for the best conditions,
while the winds are wafting towards the devil wind angle and although there are still a few waves, the next few days are looking much better. Only two full days are required to finalise the event.
The next crew of surfers through to round three are due to battle it out tomorrow. Local boy Travis Logie will face Kelly Slater ....outch and Jordy is coming up against Ozzy Dean Morrison who does well down at Jeffery's Bay, so that will also be one to watch.
