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!!

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 newsworthiness. Other than that, our reach doesn't extend much beyond the core surf demographic.

I've read about gloves, helmets, rubber, bumsteers and mongrels on this site today. :-o

Now may be the perfect segue to approach the subject of anal beads and their very many wonderful and assorted uses.

Lets start with Womble. What do you do with yours old chap?

The last Nino year and the transition winter out of it.

it's late June, coming into an El Nino.

Undesirable but not unexpected.

It doesn't undermine Nicks or yours sensations though, usually the westerly component of the advancing cold front bends that wind NW through W before it reaches spring nuclear strength......not so yesterday. Hence the armageddon type feeling.

Not to b a smart arse Skip but I did written forecasts and reports for SN during that time so it's very easy to refer to my archive of written material and cross reference that with the BOM archive MSLP charts.

Heard you on the radio Fri night.
Wouldn't dream of calling you or anyone else out on forecasts here sunshine.
Just spat my feeble feelings on that unnervingly balmy front that swept through couple a weeks now.
Damn straight, you're the man ( weather grrl) Shep.
Though currently, this frequency of NW'rs preceding SW'rs is kind out of kilter for July? Nein? Can relate to a steady pattern of W S/w but steady and frequent strong NW'rs into the mix and it does bear a Spring like feeling.
Then again. It's prolly all part of the grand design.
Resistance is futile.

Yeah the radio show was ok. I found it too busy.
Too windy.

I thought of SWVic when I typed that.

Anyway, Thelma's Grapes looked like this just in case you know these things by another name Womble.

I wonder if they do a beef week version.
Apparently, that's close to the colour too. Peeled purple grape is what mrs swvic says

To be gone Friday next week

backhand first bottom turns in bigger waves are supremely satisfying

Thoughts on model forecasts for the end of the week? Are we going to see a decent Sth swell march up the East coast?

thoughts on fcuken Cloudbreak being the next photo fever joint around July 22-23

at least the great Flat Spell has broken. Not going back to that pattern again.

aye, south swell until the end of time.

I like this pattern. Just wish some of the rockfishing ledges and inshore bommies would get scoured out.
