Trip Report: Woolamai Surf Session

IMG_0111

I went out for a brief session in the surf at Woolamai Beach on Australia Day. It wasn’t so much a trip as a beating combined with a high pressure nasal cleanout. Conditions were pretty clean although the surf was a bit bigger than I would have liked.

I kept my rudder stowed and locked away with the rubber bungee cord to prevent damage

While I didn’t manage to get out the back and surf any big waves – I didn’t break anything or have to roll or go for a swim so I thought I would quit while I was ahead and head back to shore.
