There is no prize for guessing where the swell led to this week. Nor is there a need to mention it's most hallowed of names. If you know you know. And if you do know then there's no point in showing off and telling everyone, right?
These missions are always rad. The call to come, a late night drive to miss city traffic, a pre-dawn rush to the boat ramp. As we've all got older things have got more refined. No more paddles across the harbour. No more wooden dingys with 2hp seahorse outboards [I think paddling may have been faster]. No more 2 kilometre trudges up the beach.
Thanks to Dean Werne and his 5 metre fibreglass, cabined powerboat, things are good! Energy conserved for treading water. These are the days, the days you remember. It might be just that one moment of perfection. That one single section of a wave that there was not a drop of water out of place. It only takes one wave. One ride.
There'll be locals that will say this was not a perfect day. Fair enough. A beautiful winter's day, a strong swell running, clean off-shores, barrels, good mates, old mates, fun catch ups, 6 hours in the water, 500 photos...that's a perfect CP day.

Here's another one from the day. It was selected because of the framing, the wisps of off-shores and how groomed that wall is. Damn I wanna go surfing!
