Re: Where did you surf today ?

Um, Braithy that is the CW cam and Ben wouldn't be posting screenies of their cam, haha. Also, you're correct with the reverse current on east swells, but.. all the wave action is pushing down the points to the north and this is where all the sand is being transported. The reverse rip is a small cha...

Re: bali forecast

Beanpole, not looking good for the Seminyak area when you arrive. Active monsoon will bring fresh to strong onshore W'ly winds that should back off from about Tuesday the 20th and then become more variable. Swell wise, there's an OK pulse Sunday to an inconsistent 3-5ft at exposed breaks then nothin...

Re: Spring fourteen

It won't be anything like the size across NSW, but should still see headhigh sets out the back at Snapper tomorrow. Periods strong and hit 16s at Coffs.

Re: Spring fourteen

Iggs, swell front only due from midday up the North Coast and is filling in as expected from Steve's reports. Low pushed north of the Seal Rocks region so not blocked at all by Treach etc. With those core winds a very large and late kick in swell should be seen on the North Coast. https://s3.amazona...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

As Iggs has explained, Deadies is a beast and unpredictable. I've watched it on so many swells/different moods/tides, and the one thing that stands out is that it's never easy. I've seen it super playful 6-8ft on a high tide with no ugly step, going from the outside reef right through to the end sec...

Re: winter fourteen

hey sasurfa maybe you guys should start screaming at the newspapers etc 'cause there'll be a bunch of rock fishermen in the wrong places tomorrow morning. We've issued media releases before but they're usually only run if the wave height predictions are enormous or there is some other degree of new...

Fetch duration for you guys up north isn't as good as down here, but we'll see almost a whole day of those winds aimed at us. Juicy indeed!!

You have to buy a subscription to see the 16-day forecast pirate_agenda. Very useful if you're planning a trip over that way.

Re: winter fourteen

Hi guys, the 16-day forecast has its strengths and weaknesses, all mainly depending on which coast you're looking at. For Indo, Cloudbreak, Teahupoo, WA and any other west facing coast that receives long-range groundswell it's great. If you also work in the movement of the Long Wave Trough and where...

Re: South coast this week?

Mr Vic, It'll be worth a surf between Ulludulla and Nowra from Thursday through Friday. A new south swell is due and with winds swinging E/NE Thursday arvo and N/NE all day Friday there'll be at least one classic left reef working, with a good beachy as well all within about 40 mins of each other. C...

Re: TC Freda

Sorry Don, but the peak can't have changed around over the last 18 hours as the swell's already been generated. It will occur tomorrow morning and unfortunately it doesn't look to be as big as I forecast on Monday. Bit of a let down but really tricky to forecast.

Re: my prediction for summer

Hi Braithy, yeah these systems aren't good swell producers for Sydney and Southern NSW let alone the Tassie East Coast, but in saying that the further south-west it protrudes and the longer it hags around, the greater the chance of some noticeable swell making its way down to you. It's a real long s...

Re: my prediction for summer

OK I agree on that, but no one's put a size on the swell yet, just that there is a swell producing system on the cards, the first of the season.

When saying the models are divergent it usually applies to the atmospheric models, not wave models so I think you need to be a little clearer :)

Re: my prediction for summer

How can you say they're wildly divergent when each models is showing a south-west track of a tropical system to the Fiji region before stalling. Sure the intensity isn't being agreed upon but all the guidance suggests a tropical system stalling south to east of Fiji. Wildly divergent would apply if ...

Re: Spring

Swell is kicking on the Goldy, buoy on the rise and some solid 4-5ft sets out the back of Burleigh and D-Bah it seems.
