Re: Just general surfing stuff

This is going to be the most disastrous pre Christmas break since, I dunno, 1943?

There's going to be some crowded surf.
No Polebean there will not be, because nobody will be able to paddle out.

And if they do they will either a) be drowned or killed in some other fashion or b) severely attacked by bluebottles of which I confidently predict swarms like never before.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I tell you what'll be done and dusted, and that's the Maroochy River catchment area

Good night pool development.

and also TardG, TardG could well drown in this swell

Re: Just general surfing stuff

well the Australian east coast is about to experience its best run of summer swell in at least a decade. Might actually run all the way to the new year. Everywhere will be lit up to its optimum at one point or other during this period.

I cannot wait to hear about everyone's adventures.

Re: La Nina 20/21

If anyone is interested - Steve, Nick? and I think I sent this to you Boo - I found a CD in Vinnies titled "Severe storms on the east coast of Australia 1770 - 2008" by Jeff Callaghan and Dr Peter Helman from Griffith Uni - I've saved it as a PDF - seems like a pretty comprehensive list by these eg...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Got it thanks fellas, will keep those in mind. I had intended to go a fair way down South so I'll look into AirBnB's in those spots NC - Re: North of LA, how far mate? Ventura? Santa Barbara? Looking at that coastline I'm guessing the more W and SW swell directions are going to be what I should loo...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I dunno about that, I'd watch the forecast a bit. North of LA is way better. You'll think you're an hour from anything in San Clemente but those freeways are hell, everything takes longer than you think. If you do go south of LA, go well down like boo suggests or further, just stay down there, Encin...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Groots you need to find new spots. Didn't you used to surf some spot in vicco with some name like Easy Bay or Beginner's Beach or something? And now you're surfing Pleasure Point. Isn't there a Death Slab or Widowmaker Cove nearby? Big Left at Flinders? I loved that wave. Paddle out was a PITA bein...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I'm trying to perfect the being-pushed-up-by-the-lip method, seen here at Sunset (first wave of the set) https://www.surfline.com/sessions/clips/5df03305f737aa6fd6cf7509 and also Rockies https://www.surfline.com/sessions/clips/5df5cc6723391f167a23c4a0 The idea is if you let the wave break on top of ...
