Saturday surf report

Posted by: on November 10th, 2018

It was a beat morning until about 5 minutes ago , with people out on longboards and SUPs enjoying a small 1 metre leftover Noreast windswell…

But, now the wind has started up and will acording to The Bureau freshen from the S turning SE this morning.

You might find a protected corner with small waves before high tide at 10.44.

Don’t forget Remembrance Day – Armistice day – tomorrow … Remember the Diggers on the 100th anniversary of the end of WW1.

While researching my family’s connection to WW1 (Grandfather WIA in Belgium) and three great uncles (1 WIA Belgium, 1 KIA France) in the AIF on the Western Front, some time back I came across an unexpected sentence in the Diary of Verdi Schwinghammer on the State Library website. Verdi’s troopship, like my Grandfather’s, stopped at Durban and refuelled on their way over and he noted…

“Surfing on the fine beaches was a delight, especially as the weather was very hot.”

I think the only surf report from WW1.
