Re: Where did you surf today ?

it was pretty much as expected: 6ft ( I could not call 8ft with a straight face and nor could anyone else I spoke to who surfed it), wonky, burgery, lot of noise in the signal because the head of the fetch extended so far up the NSW coast. alot of obvious period drag where it had been dragging on th...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

3-40knots SSE at Cape Byron, howling outside. if that wind doesn't moderate or swing SW by midnight tomorrow might be a no surf day. I'm so glad I backed my instincts and put the bird in the hand when it was there rather than waiting for the peak of the swell. Figured out from bitter experience thes...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I think we'll lose a fair bit of that because the fetch is tucked in pretty tight to the NSW coastline.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

They are saying 11.5ft at 15s.

4 stars.

Here's the actual surf about a half hour before sunset.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

It''s just interesting to compare MSW forecasts/reports and the actual reality in a highly hyped swell event.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

how big in Sydney?

I've heard varying reports.

looks a stormy 6ft from photos I've seen.

Which is close enough to what I'm expecting here.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Hour before sunset: 1-3ft with a very odd bigger one. Low energy ocean. Light onshore wind.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

correct.
TP1 has been around 12-13 seconds.

Still, as everyone except Godsave seems to have figured out, if that is their imaginary data point or virtual buoy analogue it's a very, very poor choice.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

according to MSW it's 9.5ft at 16s.

surf is a slow and very lazy 4ft with a million cnuts out and an onshore wind on it.

maybe it won't even get to 6ft tomorrow.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I'm thinking the back of the swell Sat. but we have a N'ly forecast Sat. this swell is being squeezed into tighter and tighter windows. still small and weak here. The sets yesterday had 15 second swell periods. Lot of visiting surfers misjudged the line necessary to keep up with the wave line on the...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I still think it's a couple of hours away and if it was only 2-3ft down there that does not give me hope.

glad I surfed the last few days. This could be a lay day.

Love parmenters boards. That thing would murder an eight foot point break.

Murdered this: 4-6ft Point surf with thirty knots of offshore wind.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I'm sure it'll get to 6ft at some point.

looks likely the swell will arrive with gale force southerlies though.

did you get a piece of it Iggs?
