Castle point comp and Monday at Lyall Bay January 6, 2010 by Kirk Beyer (Surfer)
I didnt end up going to the Scotty and Lee Memorial Comp on the weekend because the swell looked too small. I was up bright and early ready to go but after checking the reports I made the call to bail. It was a good call too, because they had to postpone the comp until Sunday night and ran most of it on Monday (and I had to work Monday).
I can’t find the official results of the comp yet, but I will post them when I get them. I have heard that they had good waves Sunday night with a howling offshore and 2-3ft surf, but Monday was the day – they scored some epic waves for the comp on monday.
I rocked up to Realsurf to start at 8am and nearly cried! It was one of those 4times a year epic surfs at Lyall Bay and I had to work!! I managed to get out at lunchtime and after work in the arvo, but check out these photos of the morning. Photos are taken by local surfer Shane Ives, if you were out in the morning he may have got a shot of you – email him to check email@example.com – Surfer in the photos is Realsurf worker/rider Jeramy Buckley.
