September isn't usually a great month on Qld's Sunshine coast here in Oz. Normally we have NE'rs blowing sometimes from dawn. Wind blown slop. Greeted by a light Westerly (offshore) trying to smooth out a lumpy SE swell this morning at Maroochydore. Some 2' ers breaking on the high tide banks with a light crowd on my local beachbreak. Great considering it's school holidays. Warm enough for boardshorts and 1mm top. Took my new McTavish 6'6" Scooter quad out for it's maiden voyage. Board felt great paddling out and caught waves easily. A couple of half hearted paddle strokes and got that early planing into the wave. Board lived up to it's monniker and "scooted" across the faces with good speed and a nice loose feel. Fast and loose. Gotta love that. Tell that one to the shaper... Fast and loose". Got a couple of little shampoos inside closeouts and the odd one that ran to let me go top to bottom. How was your surf today?
