G-LAND … Low tide early morning and the hint of swell still lingering from the past 2 days made for a hopeful start. The conditions on the low tide these past 2 days were radically different from when there was more water on the reef. From Money Trees down, not much would come through on the dryer tide. Sometimes its better on the low tide, but this was the character of this swell. So we said goodbye and said hello to the transport crew. The one’s that came in for the last 3 days hopefully realized they scored. And by the time everyone got situated, the wind started puffing over the trees and across the lagoon. There was a handful of new crew coming in new to G-Land. Nice day for them to get a feeling for the place.
By 10 o’clock, the tide was filling in nicely and it turned out to be another day where everything was working. Tigertracks would have been real good fun and supposedly it was from the crew of 5 that took the word and went with it. Head high and clean.
Not big water today…1.7 meter max and again probably truly not reaching that level since the gauge station is 2 straits away from here in Benoa Harbor. And situated in the flow of one of Planet Earth’s deepest trenches. But Inside Launching Pad was working for a few sets and running into real challenging mini Speedies. Money Trees alive. The Ledge…Fan Palms and up into Kongs. Another buffet!!!
Surf was about 8-10 foot with those rare rogue one’s that stand up way bigger than others. Offshore but not all the time…swinging from the N, straight back to S, and then ESE.
Sometime around where an outstretched arm with a full shaka would span the horizon line and sun, we were looking at bigger sets come in and stand up on the Bommie and get everyone excited once again. Looking like a new swell and looking like it could be solid was the running through my mind.
So we’ll see tomorrow…
And it’s still worth bringing a little rubber. Maybe it’s chilled back down a little. A jacket at least…
