Kandui Surf Resort April 25 surf report
The wind was blowing out of the northwest this morning, but not too strongly and it was looking a little bigger out front. Our first boat looked at Nipusi. It was actually looking pretty good with overhead sets and good conditions, but there were a few guys on it so we pushing on. The ocean had settled down a lot, but there was still plenty of sickness in the water. We went past weird Bankvaults, then weird Ebay, then stopped at weird Beng Beng. It was the cleanest of the three and no one was out. We ended up having a pretty fun session too. It was a little too big for there, going several feet overhead, but it was holding it. Our guys surfed for hours. The winds picked up out of the west and that was a good excuse to go get some lunch. Some of the guys surfed 4 Bobs in the afternoon, but most of the guys hung out and watched rugby tournaments on the Australian Channel. (Lotâ€™s of Aussiâ€™s here right now.) They are saving their energy for all the surf to come! Looking for decreasing swell tomorrow, but improving conditions. Things look like they are getting back to normal.
Kandui Surf Resort April 24 surf report
It didnâ€™t look too bad this morning, considering the dire forecast. But looks can be deceiving! The wind seemed to be out of the north, so we sent a boat to Nipusi. Once it got out of our protected little area, it was plain to see that the ocean was angry! Our guys pressed on to Nipusi and got a surf in. The winds were ok, but there was a lot of bump coming out of the west and that was making things messy. Our second boat headed to Last Resort. There too, the winds did not look that bad, but there was a ton of bump in the water. We started to look elsewhere, but the winds turned west and the ocean was SO choppy and out of control that we just decided to call it a day. That was one of the ugliest days for conditions I have ever seen out here. Forecasts are calling for decreasing winds and rising swell tomorrow. It has to be better than today!
