DAY one of the 2012 Barney Miller Surf Classic on Sawtell Beach has broken all records.

"We've had at least 130 surfers in the water and it's been a real blast," Miller said excitedly.

"It's been the biggest contest so far and the finals tomorrow should be awesome."

Heats were still continuing at twilight after a day of ideal conditions.

"There was a slight on-shore wind in the morning but the southerly came through late in the afternoon," the host said.

"It's been picking up all arvo and the surf will be great on Sunday.'

Miller said the efforts of John Craig had caught his eye along with a couple of the younger brigade.

"Heath Graham has been surfing well and Dane Hamilton from the Gold Coast has been another stand-out," he added.
