I think you'll find these are very much a function of tide and small swell heights/period.

I presume you were surfing on the high tide and inner bank. With the small swell and period, combined with high tide, the waves won't feel the outer storm bank as much. Low tide, bigger swell and period will mean the stormbank comes back into play and turns it all to sh1t again.

yeah, more or less. but it's been one big shitty shordump for months and last year in the same stretch was all-time.
couple of outside banks look promising.

found another couple banks over the border but I'm sick of fucking burning petrol every morning

this bank I've got breaks all tide round. at low you can link them all the way into the shore, and at high it kinda peaks up and the right runs shorter, but is hollow, while the left just walls up forever.

its like trestles. it's so good in fact, a former 'ct pro thought he'd bring his "advanced surf school" and push the limits of modern performance surfing on it this morning. 14 people on the bank was no bueno. NO BUENO!!!

I'm not saying I hope this guy dies of throat cancer ... but i'm thinking it.

Steve, you still calling El Nino dead? My grass and plants are begging to differ!!!! We haven't had decent rain for some time now. Not to mention decent surf!! Although tomorrow looks the goods down your way for something surfable, although I do think some sites have overcooked the forecast a touch.

Don, I won't lie to you; I'm completely fcuking flummoxed by the current ENSO state.

It's feeling very Nino like and yet the water is balmy warm and there are positive SST anomalies still extant off the NSW coast.

Kind of feels like all bets are off as to what happens from here.

Throw that new S swell in the mix and rejoice in the a-frames.

We just got to surf 'em now.
