Pitta Street, Day 12
Monday, 13 February, 2012
We surfed Wurtulla Beach on Saturday and Sunday on the dawny with no wind. Great banks peeling between two reefs with a few barrels in between. I surfed it later in the day on Sunday, onshore 1-2ft on this little pushey peak and had crazy fun on my forehand. We hung out in this wicked little local carpark in the corner and struck up a few conversations with some regulars (Sunshine Coast people are beyond friendly). One of them was stoked to hear about our mission and friendly enough to give us a heads up to a spot on Peregian Beach, Pitta Street, and said his mates are always frothing on it so later on Sunday we checked it out. The wind was on it but it had some promise so we stayed in the carpark that night and hit it first thing in the morning.
When the wind is under 10knots, even if it’s meant to be onshore, it’s glassy in the morning and we had a few hours of clean barrelling low tide left handers down the beach. Score. A few heavier sets came through and Scotty and I got some deep ones on the head, what a fun surf! The wind kicked up on cue like it did most days and in combination with the tide turned it into nothing worth looking at. I walked down the long beach in the baking sun and shot a few summery moments to keep me stoked on the beautiful piece of water that is the Sunshine Coast.
