I've heard talk on FB of some West End surfers trying to run out to catch a wave today. See what they say!

I spent the entire day yesterday at Sandy, Botany, and Mermaid's Chair. It must have been "the calm before the storm" because it was VERY calm for the West End. Not a surfer (nor any other soul, actually) in sight.
