Rate yr winter

Region, month by month breakdown and short descriptive notes or don't bother.

Lennox-ballina A+
June small but plenty of well shaped baby food
July surplus of super perfect point surf with a clean E swell even
Aug swell from all points of the compass finalized by the current long lived swell event

Unbelievable sand and mostly moderate crowds .

Sydney and surrounds. Rating: B+

i'm way too fuzzy on details to give you the nice clean month-to-month report for winter - but overall, there's been a consistent and varied mix of small/moderate to reasonably sized to Big to HUUGE swells (12ft+) and plenty to keep me entertained. only a very short smallish/flat spell that i can re-call. aside from that, it's been all shits and giggles for months.

and during some of the bigger more out-of-control wind ripped south swells we've had, i've also been spending some time hard-scoping on new fickle locations and have pegged a couple that seem plausible (but hell sketchy) and been keeping watch on them under various conditions.

You are both absorbing salt and urinating.

Yeh, can imagine it was pretty good south of Cape Byron. Lots of southerly swells that weren't great for SEQ.
