We are winding down and coming to the end of a very enjoyable trip here at the lodge. The boys from Vico have slowed right up on their final day, with only a few people jumping in the boat this morning to surf almost perfect 3-4ft Max’s Left. Most of us are completely surfed out. Even the prospect of heading back to Aus from 29°C water temp to the middle of a Torquay winter hasn’t managed to pull a few of these keen surfers out of their beds this morning. The last few days has given us a bit of a mixed bag in regards to wind changes, although the predominate south easterly has kept us surfing Max’s Left most days. Out the front has produced a few glimpses of its true potential, and we have shared a few late afternoon ‘glass offs’ lately while a number of us kicking back & enjoying an afternoon drink on the deck watching the boys trade waves not 100m from our chairs.
The charts are showing goods signs over the next week with a small consistent swell showing up early and then a solid one arriving on the 27th. We have number of returning guests arriving today, and I’m sure they can’t wait to get their feet back in the wax and into some of their old favourite waves in the area.
