The day started with the two locals Sepp and Noah going against the top seed of the Wqs Adam Melling, Unfortunately Sepp and Noah we knocked out. The waves were small than day two with heavy winds still chopping up the water. The day carried on with more and more heavy's entering the water. The main attraction for local viewers was the one and only Pete Devries. He overcame Dusty Payne and two others to get first place advancing to the next heat. Tomorrow looks like Coxs bay starting out with the heavy hitter Shannon Brown. good luck mate!1

After the Contest was done for the day, all the surfers who you didn't see at the contest were at Flo. The word has gotten out and its been pretty consistent in the surf and in the parking lot. The inside north corner was pumping out some punchy left for the last two day and will be the place to go if the wind does not calm down. Even if you are not wanting to surf its pretty sick watching such high skill on waves locals check daily. Check the shots!!!!
The cold water classics day two was held at North Chestermans becuase of swell and wind directions. The waves were definitely smaller compared to the heavy storm swell day one had to offer. The Sun was out but the wind took any warmth away that it had to offer, but the compition was going early. The day went quick with a couple unfortunate results first round of heats was over.
Round two starting at 9 oclock with Noah and Sepp should be a good one

Rain, wind, and big swell was the scene of the first day at Cox bay. The waves held up the entire day, and with the sideways rain and crowds of rain gear everything went great. Sepp, Pete, and Shannon all made it to the second heat. Day two will start off with finishing heat #1 and depending on waves heat #2 will start with the heavy's. Noah and Sepp are set to go up against each other and will be the start of good day.

With summer ending, we have all been relaxing with no stress of herds of tourist everywhere you look. Sheldon got his paddle wet and went for a stroll around the sketchy waters of the pacific. Managed to catch 7 fish and fed some wildlife, all in one day off.
The last couple of days have seen very little swell on the peninsula, those who have found waves good stuff. After checking the surf in the morning, we waited till mid day to go check in person. After Flo and Wick resembled windy lakes we decided to go for a leisure canoe ride, followed by one of the best bowl sesh's of the summer. Lee and the gang were killing it till dark. With no change in the swell for a couple days to come we may see more skateboarding in the next couple of days.
